Car Shopping: Top 5 Reasons to Buy Pre-Owned Over New

Last updated 5 years ago

Today, more people than ever are considering used cars rather than new. If you are trying to decide whether to go with a new car or a used one, consider some common reasons why many drivers choose pre-owned vehicles from a used car dealer instead:


Did you know that new cars depreciate by several thousand dollars after they are driven off the lot and by as much as 30% after the first few years of ownership? In addition to avoiding new-car depreciation, many used cars come with some coverage remaining from the original powertrain warranty.

Near-New Reliability For Less

If you buy a used car from a good dealership, you can be sure that the car’s powertrain, interior, and exterior have been inspected and restored before even being put on the lot. If you want to find a comfortable car that gets you from A to B without any trouble, buying a used car is a great way to save money.

Lower Payments

Because used cars are priced much lower than new cars in general, you will be able to take advantage of lower monthly payments. In addition, your insurance costs, interest costs, registration fees, and license fees will be less than what they would be for a new car.

Affordable Luxury

If you’ve always wanted to own a luxury car, or at least buy a car with lots of premium features, a used car is the best way to make this dream an affordable reality. Luxury vehicles like those from BMW, Mercedes, and Lexus lose a large portion of their value during the first few years of ownership, which makes them extremely affordable when purchased used.


Wider Range of Prices

When shopping for a new car, you essentially have to spend a certain inflexible amount of money to get a specific car model. With used cars, however, you can find the exact model you want and then decide whether you want to save some money by going with an older model or spend a little extra to get a car that’s newer.
