Benefits of Used CarsWant to buy a car? The question then becomes whether to go new with the fancy look or take a peek at the used cars? Some may find the secondhand car ugly, but they have constantly become more lucrative than a new vehicle for various reasons. They have more value than a new car and their pros outweigh whatever cons they have. How?
Cheaper Than NewIt has always been true that once a new vehicle is driven off the lot, even for half a mile, the car’s value drops by, at minimum, $3000. So, for starters, used cars are inexpensive. The car does not have to be that old; a 2015 vehicle is probably $5000 cheaper than its initial price and a 2013 vehicle is half the price of the current models being released. The same applies even with sports cars. The average price of any vehicle is roughly $28,000 and this before the taxes and fees come in. Wait another 3 years and watch it drop to $20,000 or less. Used cars saves buyers money and it doesn’t matter if the value keeps on dropping because it was not as worse as those who bought it brand new.
Long-LastingThe vehicles of the past decade are now constructed to last much longer than previous models. The average age of a car being driven now is roughly 12 years old, which might as well be 75 in human years. That will rise even more as the auto industry starts to place in those special technologies in every vehicle for everyone to be inserted into the 21st-century. So, when it comes to buying used cars today and the vehicle is three-years old, it is a sturdy piece of machinery that can last another 5-10 years.The shelf life of these newly produced cars is roughly 100,000 miles and growing with the new models. The strength of these engines and the inside appeal makes used car buyers intrigued for being like a new vehicle off the lot.
CPO’s And VHR’sStaying on the subject of pre-owned vehicles, new cars are usually leased rather than bought off and the owners must keep it clean and damage-free. These pre-leased cars are then resold in CPO (Certified pre-owned) programs that guarantee a buyer that the vehicle is in fantastic condition as if it was new. They don’t carry a lot of miles, the interior is kept up-to-date, and the maintenance is clear. Then, there are the vehicle history reports (VHR), in which companies and potential car owners know if the car in question had previous issues. A vehicle history report will include the previous owner(s), registration (as a personal, lease, or even rental), and any past accidents, repairs, and mileage.
While new cars have that smell, the value of that is worth cents on the dollar. Value of the car and longevity is what matters. Buyers should weigh the costs of new and old vehicles before making that decision because being the car’s first owner is only worth a name on the paper. Researching helps to get to the bottom of long-term costs, which points in the advantage of the used vehicle.
