Why Buy a Used Car?

Woman Signing Contract at Dealership

For some drivers, the decision to buy a used car is a simple one. After all, used cars and SUVs often cost much less than new vehicles, and include many of the same features. Still, if you’re on the fence, you may wonder: why buy a used car? Even if you could technically afford the payments with either plan, there are plenty of good reasons to buy pre-owned.

Five Reasons to Buy a Used Car

Although we understand why many drivers choose to buy new vs. used cars, the truth is that buying pre-owned is often the smarter financial decision. Here’s why more and more Scranton-area drivers are choosing to save:

  1. You’ll pay less in depreciation. Buying a car is always an investment, but both new and used cars depreciate in value over time. However, the majority of depreciation takes place within the first few years of ownership, and buying used could save you thousands.
  2. Cars are lasting longer than ever. Today, it’s far from uncommon to see used vehicles rack up 150,000 or even 200,000 miles. Although it’s still possible to find low-mileage used cars in our certified pre-owned inventory, you can count on any model to go the distance.
  3. Warranty coverage isn’t just for new cars. It used to be true that buying a new vs. used car would help you lock in covetable warranty coverage. Today, you can find a certified pre-owned warranty that extends coverage far into the future.
  4. You’ll know more about the kind of car you’re buying. It takes time for experts and Dunmore-area drivers to learn the ins and outs of any given new vehicle. Drivers who buy used will have access to research, forums, and historical data on virtually any used model, from any model year.
  5. Insurance costs are usually lower. You won’t just save on your monthly payments. You’ll also reduce the amount that you’re asked to pay in insurance, because used cars present a much smaller financial risk for the insurer.
