When you’re in the market to get behind the wheel of a new vehicle, there are a lot of things to be considered. Oftentimes personal need and budget are the two major deciding factors when picking out a vehicle, or at least, deciding what kind of vehicle you’ll get – new or used. Off the bat, most drivers would prefer getting a new vehicle, and while it definitely has its advantages, new vehicles aren’t without their drawbacks. Here at Apollo Auto, we’re familiar with the benefits of buying a used car over a new vehicle, so before you put all of that money down on a new vehicle, here are a few reasons a used car might be a better choice.
First of all, when you think of a used vehicle, you might picture an old clunker or a lemon sitting in the corner of a lot. For the most part, this is inaccurate. While there are a few clunkers out there, it’s easier than ever to find a quality used vehicle. Here are just a few reasons you might decide to opt for a used vehicle.
One of the biggest reasons drivers turn to used vehicles is the better price they can find for them. Despite used cars having higher interest rates than new vehicles, the bill tends to be much lower overall, making it easy to fit into your monthly budget. It’s also a great chance for you to get behind the wheel of a nicer vehicle, albeit slightly older, than you might normally be able to afford.
When you buy a new vehicle, much of the depreciation in its value occurs within its first year, simply from being new and first experiencing the wear and tear that goes along with driving on the road. For used car drivers, vehicles depreciate in value much more slowly. Not to mention, those extra dings and dents are going to bother you a lot less than they would if you were driving a new $25,000 car.
