More and more people are buying preowned vehicles, and for lots of good reasons! First of all, you will save thousands of dollars. Yup, thousands. Why? Because new cars depreciate, and quickly. If you buy a new car and drive it off the lot, then drive it back to the dealership, it is no longer considered a new car. Just like that, it has depreciated. In America, the average new car costs $33,500. The average used car costs just over $20,000. That’s a big difference. And according to Consumer Reports, after three years your new car will be worth just 54 percent of what you paid for it. So buying a used car saves you a lot from the get-go.
At Barrett Motors in Sachse, Garland and Rowlett, we thought it might be helpful to share all the reasons that buying a used car makes sense.
You’ll Pay Less
Because a used car costs less, you’ll pay less tax on a used car. Insurance will also cost less, and in most states it is cheaper to register a used vehicle than a new one. Of course, because your vehicle is used, there will be more maintenance costs, but if you have a great mechanic, you’ll be in good shape.
A Used Card Is Reliable
Cars, trucks and SUVs are made better than vehicles in the past. Yes, in the 70s, cars wore out quicker. But these days, automobiles are built to last longer, and go further. In act, the average car driving on American roads today is more than 11 years old! By 2020, the number of 12-year-old vehicles on the road is expected to increase by 15 percent. A lot of people are learning that owning and driving a used car makes a lot of sense!
Vehicle History Reports
When you buy a used car, it’s pretty easy to get a vehicle history report through providers like Carfax and AutoCheck. By using the vehicle’s VIN number, these companies can provide you with information like the number of previous owners, whether it has been in an accident or flood, mileage validation and more. This kind of information can give you peace of mind.
