Are you in the market for a replacement vehicle? Whether your car was damaged in an accident or has simply reached the age of retirement, choosing and purchasing a new one can be a time-consuming and expensive endeavor.
Rather than springing for a brand-new vehicle, consider purchasing a used car for the reasons outlined below.
Due to the way that car sales are regulated, the only way to purchase a new car is to go through a dealership. Although the availability of information on the Internet has somewhat mitigated this problem, dealerships can in many cases take advantage of buyers’ lack of knowledge or savvy to overcharge for vehicles. If you choose to purchase a used car, you have many more options: you can go through Abbotsford used car dealerships or purchase a car through a private seller. Dealing with an individual one on one can help you to get a better price, save time and cut down on complications.
Lower Purchase Price
Choosing to invest in a used car rather than a new one will definitely save you money. Furthermore, getting a car that is a few years old rather than the newest one on the market does not necessarily mean that you will have to give up all of the latest technology or safety features. A car that is just a year or two old, with relatively low mileage, will still cost less than a new one of the same make and model. You could even choose to purchase a used mid-size car or SUV for the same approximate price as a new sedan.
Better Insurance Rates
Car insurance rates are calculated based on a multitude of factors, including your age, driving record, and insurance carrier. Nonetheless, on average, used cars are cheaper to insure than new ones due to their lower value. Between the cost of payments on your chosen vehicle and the price of monthly insurance, it is easy to see how going with a used car can save you thousands of dollars in the long run.
If flexibility in making your purchase and cost savings are important to you, you may wish to make your next vehicle a used car. Before making a purchase, be sure to research the Kelley Blue Book value of the vehicle to make sure that you are getting a good deal. In addition, take the car for a test drive before buying it. Good luck with your purchase!
