Why Buy Used

While many people would prefer to own an all-new vehicle, there are several reasons why investing in a used model actually makes a lot a sense and could even provide more bang for your buck.

Used Vehicles Feature Lower Price Tags

The most obvious reason for investing in a used vehicle is because these automobiles usually come at significantly lower prices. In order to purchase a new vehicle, most financial institutions require a down payment of at least 10% on a new-car loan. With a used car, the amount you will need for a down payment will be much lower, even if you still want to put down 10%.

New cars also depreciate rapidly, especially in the first few years. When you buy used, you get to skip out on most of that depreciation, which makes your money go further. In fact, you might be able to afford a much nicer used car with better features than you could if you bought something brand new.

Lower Insurance Premiums

Since used cars are worth less than new cars, it doesn’t require as much money to keep them covered. Keep more money in your pocket each month with lower insurance premiums.

Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle Programs Offer Great Deals

Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) programs are worth checking out because manufactures will only certify vehicles which are only a few years old, have low mileage, and don’t have a history of significant damage. In addition, these vehicles undergo a thorough inspection and reconditioning process before they earn their certified status.

Specifically, Ford CPO vehicles to through a 172-point inspection process. If they are any parts that need to be replaced, Ford technicians will only use genuine Ford parts to ensure the car delivers the best performance.

Furthermore, some of these vehicles sometimes are offered with special financing deals that are much less than you get when purchasing an all-new vehicle. But, the best reason to buy a CPO vehicle might be that they often come with excellent warranties.

Ford CPO vehicles include the remainder of the seven-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty and a 12-month/12,000-mile Comprehensive Limited Warranty.

Larger Selection of Vehicles to Choose From

If you are buying a new vehicle, then you’re limited to just the models available that year. The best reason for buying used might be the enormous selection of used vehicles you get to choose from. You can find the exact make and model you want with the right combination of features. It might make your car search take a little longer, but the satisfaction you get from driving away in the ideal vehicle will make it worth it.
