Benefits of Buying Used Cars

When it comes to car shopping, it can be a headache to decide whether a new car, used car or Pre-Owned Certified vehicle is right for you. Each car, truck, van or SUV has its pros and cons; whether it’s the condition of the vehicle, financing options or the available technology and safety features, each will be unique in its own way. Our team at Fayetteville Auto Mart is here to discuss how investing in one of our certified Pre-Owned or used cars in Fayetteville, NC can help you down the road. Read on to discover the benefits of buying a used car!

1. Pricing

There’s no doubt that price is the initial aspect that is considered when beginning the car buying process. You know your budget and you’re sticking to it. If you’re working with a limited budget, the chance is slim that you will find a new vehicle at an appealing price that also has all your desired features. When purchasing a new vehicle, one of the biggest downfalls is the pace at which it will depreciate. The minute that new car, truck or SUV drives off the lot, 20% of its value has vanished. To follow-up, within the first year of driving your new vehicle, you could lose another 10%.

By simply investing in a used car, you eliminate throwing this money out the window. We understand the term “used car” does not always have the greatest connotation. When we say invest in a used car, we are not implying that you need to purchase a vehicle that is 10-15 years old(although this is also a great way to save). Even by purchasing a one year old set of wheels, you are going to be saving your bank account. Get more bang for your buck and check out our used car inventory!

2. Condition

Next up on the check list comes the condition of the vehicle. This aspect may not have the best reputation when it comes to used cars for sale. If you purchase a new car, you have comfort in knowing that you are the first person to drive off the lot in that vehicle. You personally know when all the service appointments occurred and know exactly what the vehicle has endured. Although you don’t get this with a used vehicle, there are ways to feel ease with the condition.

This process may take longer, but in the long run, well worth your time. It’s all in the research and vehicle history reports. The reports you can get your hands on will inform you of any previous accidents or issues that have occurred. No need to feel as if you’re blindly buying the car. If you’re not finding a used car with a reliable history, look into purchasing a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle.

What sets Certified Pre-Owned(CPO) vehicles apart from used vehicles? CPO vehicles are typically only a few years old, meaning mileage is low with minimal wear and tear. Each model has also been thoroughly inspected and covered by a manufacturer extended warranty. When investing in a Certified Pre-Owned car, there may be other benefits that come along with it including roadside assistance. You could be driving off the lot in a “like new” vehicle at a used car price in no time!

3. Features

A major draw to purchasing a new vehicle may be the continually updated safety and technology features. Fortunately for you, you are able to receive these features in your used car purchase. Many recently traded in used cars or Certified Pre-Owned cars come loaded with features such as a rear view camera, Bluetooth®, USB port, Blind Spot Monitors, Park Assist and many more. If you know exactly what amenities you are wanting, browse our inventory or complete our Vehicle Finder Service form and we will search near and far for a match. Unfortunately, with used vehicles you may have to sacrifice some features, but we promise to work our hardest to find exactly what you are looking for.
