Why Buy Used in Memphis, TN?


So you have decided that you are ready to purchase a vehicle. Great! Now it is time to decide whether you'd like to buy a new vehicle or a used one. After personal finances have been evaluated and the benefits have been examined for both options, it’s common to feel like you have to “settle” for a used car. But fear not! There are many advantages to purchasing used; in fact, you may even be able to find the car you want at a great price if you buy used. Read here for an overview of reasons your next car should be a used one!

​ 

Depreciation

​ 

One of the biggest reasons to buy a used vehicle comes down to one factor: depreciation. A used car, even if just a couple years old avoids most hits on depreciation.​ That means that when you buy a used vehicle, you are getting more bang for your buck. Think about it. When you go to re-sell a vehicle that you bought used, the resale price will be a lot closer to what you paid for the vehicle. This is not the case when you purchase new.
​ 

Better Upgrades

​ 

When you buy used, you have the opportunity to get better features for the money. You can enjoy leather seats or more advanced in-cabin technology for less than you might be able to afford in a new car. You could also get a more powerful engine or tow/haul options. The cost of better features is the wear and tear on the vehicle - you trade those leather seats for the miles on the odometer.

​ 

More Options

​ 

In all, used cars provide more options than new ones. The term “new car” is limited to the small number of vehicles released for the current model year; used vehicles, on the other hand, encompass cars from virtually any time period. The best thing you can do when searching for a used car is do your homework: find out which model years were the safest, most reliable and included the technology you want.
