Perks Of Buying Used Cars | Cumming GA | Serving Alpharetta & Atlanta

If you’re ready to replace your old vehicle, you’ve probably heard a lot of suggestions to buy new. There are definitely some significant perks to buying new, but did you know that buying used also has its own unique financial benefits?

We’ve listed a few of the perks of buying a used vehicle below. Everyone’s situation is different, but hopefully you’ll find this information useful when it comes time to make your decision.

Affordability

A significant benefit of buying used is affordability. Since a used car is objectively cheaper than its newer equivalent, if you take out a loan, your down payment and monthly payments will be much lower than they would be for a used car. It’s also easier to pay for a used car all at once, meaning you wouldn’t even have to worry about paying on it monthly. Buying used could also potentially mean spending less for more features, or for a nicer model than what you had before.

Lower Insurance Rates

In addition to low monthly payments, you’ll find that protecting your used vehicle will also be more affordable. Insurance rates are calculated according to the value of your car, and since used cars cost less, so does their insurance.

Slower Depreciation

A new car loses a lot of its value within the first few years of ownership. While depreciation is a constant process with cars, it tends to level out more after those years. A used car will likely have already gone through this steep decline in value by the time you purchase it, which means you pay a great deal less.

Options

Models get discontinued quite often in the automotive industry, sometimes even ones that we may love. When you buy used, that becomes less of an issue. Additionally, you can find cars with different trims or features that may no longer be available on those models. Buying used is all about options, because you aren’t limited by the features and trims of a single year.
