Why Buy Used at Carriage Nissan
Buying a new car is an exciting event, but sometimes that shiny, high-priced new vehicle might not be the right choice for you. Here’s a few reasons why buying a used car over a new one could be the best option!
WHY BUY USED
Side-step heavy depreciation
When you buy a new car, it drops drastically in value the minute you drive off the lot, and by drastically we mean about 20%. Add an extra 10% drop in value over the course of the first year you own it, and you’re looking at a big loss. You can skip this big loss by buying a one-year-used car. It’s still in the prime of its life, and you’re not eating the cost of heavy depreciation.
More for your money
Today’s cars run longer than ever. You can get that expensive luxury vehicle you’ve always wanted by picking out an older, used model (which usually looks just like the newest model) at a much more reasonable price. It will come with almost all the same features, but without the extra cost.
Lower insurance costs
Your insurance costs are largely based on the price of your vehicle. Used cars, with their lower prices, mean that you’re almost guaranteed to get a better insurance rate. On top of this, you usually don’t need to pay for collision or theft insurance elements for your used car.
Lower state registration fees
When you register your vehicle, this value is based on the price you paid for the vehicle. Almost always, the price you pay for a used car is far, far lower than what you would pay for a new vehicle.
When it comes down to it, if you’re looking to save money, you need to look into purchasing a used vehicle. Browse our large selection of used cars and learn more about the alternative used car choice, a certified pre-owned vehicle.
