Advantages of Buying Used

Lower Prices

Because of this price advantage, car shoppers often have the ability to step up to a nicer model in the used market. Considering that used cars are cheaper than newer models, used cars will have a lower loan amount and based on the terms of the loan, the monthly payments may be lower and have less total interest. Also, lower prices for used cars mean there are better chances of being able to buy your vehicle for cash or making a large down payment.

Avoid Depreciation

We’ve all heard the stories about how quickly a new car can depreciate. The steepest decline in depreciation in new cars happens right away, with some models potentially losing 40 percent or more of their value in the first year alone. Used cars hold their value longer with minimal differences from their newer counterparts putting used car buyers at an advantage when it comes to depreciation.

More Vehicle Options

While the new car market is full of newer and fresher looks, it’s hard to find exactly what you’re looking for with options being limited. The used car market allows you to find the exact car you want with a variety of options. From smaller trucks to midsize cars and SUVs, we have you covered. As the used car market continues to grow, used vehicle quality and reliability are improving as well. Now there are more high-quality cars that can endure much more mileage.

Research and Reviews

In the process of researching a used vehicle, buyers have the advantage of several years of reliability information which they can access. Potential problems or issues can be avoided simply by researching a vehicle’s history and reading critical reviews. There are plenty of reputable websites to do research on new and used cars such as, Cars.com, Cargurus, Edmunds and more!

Yes! Any new car loses much of its original value once it leaves the lot. A benefit of buying a used vehicle is that its value is already at a steady level and will typically remain the same over time.

The main difference is that certified pre-owned vehicles have been thoroughly inspected and reconditioned to like-new quality. Also, most certified pre-owned programs have an extended warranty that activates after the New Vehicle Warranty expiration, which is an additional perk for CPO owners. A used car from a private seller won’t have the same warranty protection and perks as a certified pre-owned vehicle from Tonkin Wilsonville Nissan.
