The Benefits of Purchasing Used Vehicles
There are many benefits that come with buying a used vehicle. These benefits include less intense depreciation, a great variety of options, and lower insurance costs. Let’s review each of these now in detail.
Less Intense Depreciation
One of the problems with buying a new car is that it depreciates significantly. From the very moment you drive the car off the lot, it loses some of its value. Over time, this depreciation is even more intense. By the time you’ve had the new car for a few years, the money you invested in it will be far more than the value of the car itself.
This doesn’t occur when you buy a used car. Especially if it’s an older model, most of the depreciation has already occurred when you buy it. As a result, the amount of money the car is worth in the future will be close to the purchase price you paid.
Additionally, if you add features or pay for the right repairs, you could even drive the value of your car up—making money later if you choose to sell it. When comparing vehicles’ prices, remember to keep this in mind. If there’s a pricier used car available, think about what you could make back if you trade it in or sell it later.
A Great Variety of Options
Another benefit of purchasing a used vehicle is that you have a great variety of options. If you have a limited budget, this means that there are only so many new vehicles you can consider. But additionally, there are only so many new vehicles out there.
With used vehicles, on the other hand, you can consider makes and models from years past. If they’re well-maintained, you could even look at cars that are ten years old. Whatever features you want your car to have, you’re likely to find one you’re looking for within the great variety of options available in the used vehicles market.
Lower Insurance Costs
When you buy car insurance, it’s more expensive for more expensive cars. As you can imagine, this means that if you buy a new car at full price, your car insurance premiums will be incredibly high. However, if you find a cheaper used vehicle, your insurance costs will be lower. So, you’ll save in two ways, both by paying a lower car price and paying less for insurance premiums.
Less Risky Than Before
Purchasing used vehicles is less risky than it used to be. This is because it’s relatively easy to get the car’s vehicle history report, where you can learn about past accidents or any other issues (such as whether the car was stolen). It’s easy to get a vehicle history report, and it’s free! To learn how to get a free VIN check of your car, check out this advice from U.S. News.
The Benefits of Purchasing a CPO Vehicle
If you’re a car buyer who’s nervous about purchasing a used vehicle because you’re worried about issues such as reliability or repairs, then you can always go with a certified pre-owned, or CPO, vehicle. These are usually either certified by the dealer or manufacturer. There are many benefits that come with purchasing a CPO vehicle.
Limited Miles and Age
For a vehicle to be certified as a CPO vehicle, it needs to have limited miles and age. If you want to buy a used car that still has many years left on it, going with a CPO vehicle will provide you with the assurance you need.
No Major Collision History
Another requirement for a CPO vehicle to pass certification is that it doesn’t have a major collision in its history. If any cars have suffered frame or significant body damage, they won’t pass the test.
As a result, you won’t have to deal with expensive repairs in the future that are related to a past major collision.
You Get a Warranty
The best CPO programs offer a bumper-to-bumper warranty—the same type of warranty you’d get when buying a new car. There are also powertrain warranties available, which cover your car for either:
• An extended amount of time
• A large number of miles
Some CPO programs will cover the used car you buy for up to 100,000 miles. It’s important to look at the fine print, as some warranties are continued on from the original warranty, while others start when you purchase the vehicle.
You Can Get Special Financing
Often, many deals and special financing are available when you buy a CPO. 2% deals are the most common, though sometimes you can find 1% deals, too. Banks and credit unions will often provide loans, too.
Many dealerships with CPO options will have a financing page where you can calculate the payments based on the loan you’re eligible to get. All this makes buying a CPO vehicle affordable, which means you can get a high-quality car while still paying less than you would for a new one.
Many CPO vehicles come with additional benefits, such as replacement transportation when your car’s getting repaired, roadside assistance, and free maintenance. You might even get free satellite radio. When looking at CPO options, ask the dealership about what additional benefits you can get. These can really sweeten the deal.
