Reasons to Buy an Economical Used Car
Budget-minded used cars and trucks are a fantastic choice for many car shoppers looking to remain within their given budget, acquire a set of wheels for a teen driver, fill a temporary need, simply bypass car finance altogether, or any number of personal reasons. While buying a new car is generally a bucket list goal for a number of individuals, there are more than a few attractions for buying pre-owned. The most common among these rationales are that pre-owned cars and trucks depreciate less over time, are dependable and reliable vehicles, and commonly cost less to insure than a less dated model.
One all-too unavoidable reality of automobile ownership is the little matter of depreciation. As suggested by Kelley Blue Book, the typical car can lose approximately 60% of its value over the first 5 years, regardless of model or make. Likewise, shopping used helps savvy car buyers to leverage depreciation in their own favor. Acquiring a model which is just several years old means getting a top-of-the-line model for a fraction of the original MSRP. On the whole, buying a budget-friendly used vehicle means saving money on the initial purchase while maintaining better value over time.
Safety & Reliability
Our team stands behind the quality of our stock of pre-owned cars. Our entire inventory of used SUVs, cars, and trucks go through a thorough inspection and repair before being able to be counted for resale. This includes safety above all. Safety is based on the model, make, and year you are purchasing, and not a matter of being pre-owned or not. A study by Consumer Reports suggests that reliability and features do not see any significant reduction until after a vehicle's 6th year. Certainly, as with all vehicles, mileage is often a better indicator of reliability than age.
Lower Insurance Costs
For budget-minded car buyers, reducing expenses can often include the amount of car insurance. As suggested by NerdWallet, a significant factor of auto insurance premiums is the car itself. How much is it worth? What do replacement parts cost? What's its safety rating? This facet of auto insurance is the guarantee against the amount of the repairing or replacing damage to your car or truck. Because of this, buying a dependable, safe, and affordable used car can significantly lower your monthly premiums. Final rates, however, are often significantly influenced by your own driving profile, including credit score, driving history, and age.
