As long as you do your homework, research thoroughly, and purchase a used car from a well-established dealership, you can save thousands of dollars. But there are many other features and qualities of used cars that, in many situations, make them a much better investment than a brand new one.
Used cars, even the relatively newer models, cost a lot less.
Did you know that you can get a used 2015 model of a car you like for a much lower price than when you buy the 2016 model? Of course, aside from savings, this also means you will have access to some (if not most) of the latest in technological innovations in the motor vehicle industry. From entertainment to fuel efficiency, and from safety to warranties, you can save a lot on used newer models than the latest one.
You can enjoy extended warranties on certain types of used vehicles.
Certain types of vehicles are certified pre-owned. They carry such a name because the original owner purchased additional warranty in addition to the warranty already provided by the seller. So when you buy one of these used cars from a Chilliwack, BC dealership, you will acquire extended warranty and enjoy having your ride covered without having to purchase insurance right away, Murray Honda explains.
Replacement parts are not only cheaper, but easier to find for a relatively new model used car.
Except for antiques or really outdated cars, replacement parts for used cars just released several years ago cost a lot less too. Reliable mechanics and technicians most likely have these parts in stock already, or just in case they do not, they will still have an easy time finding one for your ride.
As tempting as it is to purchase a brand new car, remember that it loses a huge deal of its value once you start using it. And with these lesser-known benefits of going used, you should already consider it over a brand new one.
