Why You Should Buy a Used Car, Truck, or SUV

Family SUV

Shopping for a vehicle can be stressful because many factors and needs go into it. Additionally, it’s a big purchase, whether it’s a new car or a used truck. Many people would love to make a big purchase and buy a brand new car. However, money can be a huge factor in making such a huge decision. That’s where buying a used car, truck, or SUV comes in. One huge factor is that they are cheaper to buy compared to buying a newer vehicle. That’s not the only reason to buy a used car or truck. Let’s explore why you should consider purchasing a used vehicle over a new one below!

Lower Price

There is no secret that purchasing a used vehicle is cheaper and saves you a lot of money. Many will say that “you get what you pay for” or “the vehicle you purchase will not be in the best condition.” At times that can be true, but many times dealerships who buy used vehicles from auctions or trade-ins make sure the car is in tip-top shape before it’s on the lot. Here at Tonkin Automotive, we make sure our used cars are maintained and running great before selling them to our customers. Rest assured, you will not buy a clunker vehicle from Tonkin Automotive. 

No Worries on Depreciation 

One thing that will always happen when you buy a new car is depreciation. A new car is said to depreciate about 10 to 15 percent once driven off the lot, which is a lot when you look at the average cost of a new vehicle. With that said, when buying a used car, truck, or SUV, most of the depreciation is gone by the first year of a vehicle. In other words, a used car ends up losing less of its value over time compared to a new one.

Lower Monthly Costs

Another reason to buy a used vehicle is the lower monthly costs regarding insurance payments. Many people do not take into account the insurance costs when buying a new car. When it comes to insurance payments, you will likely always pay less monthly for a used vehicle compared to a new one. The value of your car is one of the factors that go into determining your insurance payment. When purchasing a used vehicle, you save in your monthly car note and insurance cost, which is better for you in the long run. 

Variety of Vehicles

Another major factor in purchasing a used vehicle is the variety that you can choose from. You can find so many options of vehicle brands, no matter the budget you have. Whether you’re looking for a luxury car, an AWD SUV, or a powerful  V8 truck, you can find any brand car of your choosing no matter the budget you’re looking to spend. You can honestly say, you have a better chance of buying your dream car from a pre-owned inventory compared to a new one.
