What Are Some Advantages to Buying A New Car?

On top of that wonderful new-car smell, there are several advantages to picking car, truck or SUV right off the showroom floor.

Being the first person to drive your vehicle offers great peace of mind. You can hit the streets in confidence knowing every individual part and component is from right off the factory floor.

Plus, if any mechanical issues pop up, you’re protected by a comprehensive warranty. While packages vary from brand-to-brand, most warranties contain a long list of perks, like:

  • Limited comprehensive coverage
  • Roadside assistance
  • Complimentary vehicle history report
  • Trial internet radio subscription
  • Discounts on parts and routine maintenance

Any Other Benefits to Buying New?

If you’re the type who enjoys staying up-to-date on the latest technologies, buying a new car is particularly attractive. With manufacturers releasing new models every year, the pressure to innovate is high.

If you’re like most drivers, you likely intend to finance your next ride. New cars often come with special incentives including attractive financing rates. Depending on the vehicle, you might even be able to score complimentary maintenance for a period of time.

What Are Some Advantages to Buying A Used Car?

Often overlooked but worth taking into account is a car’s depreciation. In simplest terms, depreciation is the incremental lowering of your car’s value over time. This begins the moment you drive off the lot. In some cases, a new car’s value can drop by 20% within the first year.

Think about it: You buy a new car for $25,000. By the end of the year, your car is worth $5,000 less than what you paid for it. By choosing a used car that’s between 1 to 3 years old, you can avoid taking this financial hit while still driving away in a quality ride!

So why else consider going the used route? Well, if you like having lots of options, a used car dealer is the place to go. Our used car lots contain makes and models from nearly every automotive brand.

This even includes luxury models. If you always dreamt of driving a luxury sedan or SUV but don’t want to pay full price, a used model can be a smart alternative. You might even be able to pick up remaining time on an existing warranty, adding further value to the deal.
