Explore the Benefits of Buying Pre-Owned

If you're starting to shop for your next vehicle, you may be wondering whether you should buy a used car or go for a brand-new one. Thoughts of that new-car smell or saving money with a used vehicle are sure to come to mind.

While new cars certainly have their perks, so do the pre-owned vehicles for sale in your area.

Our St. George, UT, new and used car dealership has compiled some of the top reasons many motorists end up buying pre-owned when shopping for their next automobile. Whether you're car shopping from nearby Hurricane, UT, up north around Salt Lake City or far beyond, you can consider these factors when browsing local new or used cars for sale.

1. Buying Used Saves You Money

It's no secret that used cars can cost thousands of dollars less than a comparable new model. After all, saving money is the main reason drivers opt for pre-owned over new. But you don't just save money on the sale price: there are other ways that buying used helps you save big!

When you choose to buy a used car, you could also enjoy:

  • Lower registration fees
  • Savings on sales tax
  • Lower insurance costs
  • Less interest paid on your car loan
  • Fewer fees or optional add-ons

2. Helps Avoid Steep Depreciation

Depreciation is the key factor in why new car buyers pay more and used car buyers pay less. New vehicles typically face their steepest depreciation in the first few years after manufacture, so by purchasing a pre-owned car, you're often able to bypass that initial depreciation and save thousands of dollars in the process.

3. Reduces Stresses Compared to Buying New

It's only natural to want to keep a brand-new item looking like new, especially when it's a large purchase like an automobile. Buying a new car comes with the expectation that it will be flawless for some time, which leads buyers to fret over even the smallest scratch that develops days, weeks, months or even years after driving the vehicle off the new car lot.

By comparison, driving a recently purchased used car is often a more stress-free experience since there's less worry about that first dent, ding, scratch, stain or imperfection.

4. You Can Buy a Better Car

Another advantage of buying used is that you can often get more car for your money. If the new version of that crossover, SUV or truck you're after is outside of your budget, you can consider a nearly-new or late-model vehicle that is more affordable.

Maybe there are certain safety or technology features you want in your next car. You don't necessarily have to buy new to get those modern amenities at an affordable price.

5. Availability and Selection

Sometimes, you might have to wait for the latest and greatest new car model to arrive at dealerships. That model could be in short supply or can't be optioned the way you'd like it.

That's when you can turn to the used cars for sale near Santa Clara, UT, or your local market for a wide selection of makes, models and features. After all, by shopping pristine pre-owned vehicles for sale, you might come across a quality vehicle at a great price that you would never have considered if shopping for new cars only.
