Why Buy Used?

Deciding between buying a new car or a used car isn't always easy: each option has a variety of pros and cons. Whether you're leaning toward new or used, take the time now to read our list of used car "pros" to help you make your choice:


  • Used cars are always the most cost effective option. If your goal is to save as much money as possible, your best bet is going to be a used car.
  • Buying a used car today isn't as much of a risk as it once was. Modern vehicles are built to last far longer than their predecessors were and "high mileage" isn't quite the same death sentence as it used to be.
  • When you buy used, you're minimizing depreciation. A new car can lose up to 30% of its value the minute it rolls off the lot, and another 10% after its first year on the road.
  • It costs less to insure a used car than it does to insure a new car. It also costs less to register your used car.
  • If you're still nervous about the quality of your used car, you can always go for a "certified pre-owned" vehicle. This means that the car has undergone its manufacturer's (usually strict) certification process, which generally includes a professional inspection and detailed history report. CPOs usually come with a strong warranty, too.
