If you're on the hunt for your next vehicle, chances are good that you're trying to decipher the benefits of buying new versus used. Here, we break down the basics of either option so you can choose which is best for you.
Buying new might be the best option if you value the latest gadgets and technology. A new car is going to have the best available, from safety features to smartphone connection to voice commands. When you buy new, you can also get exactly what you want by having your vehicle made-to-order.
For many people, a new car means peace of mind. New vehicles come with warranties, which give buyers the guarantee that their money is well spent. Even though buying new is the most expensive option, that undamaged, untouched, latest and greatest purchase is worth it for some people.
Today, buying used can be just as safe as buying new, and for a lower cost. For one thing, this is because cars are made to last longer than ever before. Plus, there are many resources out there to help those who are shopping for used vehicles. Kelley Blue Book, for instance, provides current market pricing for used cars of all ages and conditions. Shoppers can use this to be sure they're getting a fair price. Plus, sites like CarFax and AutoCheck provide vehicle histories for any used car, showing previous owners and repairs.
For those who care less about the latest technology and more about finding a reliable vehicle for a good deal, buying used is the way to go. Not only will you save money on the purchase, but you'll pay less in taxes and insurance, which is definitely worth a few extra steps of research.
