Learn About all the Great Reasons a Used Car Might be the Right Car for You

You've been thinking about your next vehicle purchase, and you're torn. You like the idea of buying something used, but you're also apprehensive about some of the drawbacks.

If you ask us, that's just because you don't have a full understanding of everything a good used car can offer you. Based in Radford, VA, the sales team at Harvey's Chevrolet Buick can tell you more about everything used vehicles bring to the table.

The Perks and Benefits of Buying Your Next Car Used

There are several good reasons to consider a used car for your next car. Let's take a look at some of the biggest:

  • Lower Price Tags: We'd be remiss if we didn't put this one at the top of the list. The most obvious reason to buy a used car is that they cost less! It doesn't matter if you're shopping on a tight budget or just like the idea of getting more for less. A used car is one of the easiest ways to secure a lower monthly payment.
  • Reduced Depreciation: When you buy a new car, its value starts to drop the moment you take it off the lot. Many new cars will lose up to a third of their market value within their first year on the road. Used cars don't have that problem. By the time you're buying them, their value depreciation has already occurred. That means the price tag you pay is closer to its actual long-term value.
  • Fewer Surprise Fees: Buying a new car can come with a lot of "after the fact" fees. If you've ever purchased a new model, you know what we're talking about. Used cars tend to come with less of those unwanted expenses. That means the final price you pay is closer to the price you were promised.
  • Lower Insurance Costs: When you buy a new car, it's common for your insurance premium to include "gap insurance" costs. Gap insurance covers the difference between your car's current value and the price you paid for it, should you experience a serious accident. Since used cars have already seen their value depreciate, they have no need for gap insurance. That saves you on another monthly bill.
  • Certified Guarantees: If you're looking for a used car but want new car quality, a certified pre-owned model might be just what you're looking for. CPO cars are like-new models that have been run through a stringent testing progress. They have to be on par with a new car to pass. They'll offer you a lower price, heightened peace of mind, and, often enough, unique warranty options that bolster their value further.
