Buying New vs. Pre-owned Vehicles

 

Buying New vs. Pre-owned Vehicles    

The process of shopping for your next vehicle comes with many options. One of the biggest options is whether you should buy new or pre-owned. While there are benefits to both, choosing the option that's right for you starts with figuring out your needs, both financial and transportation-wise. In order to help you out, we've put together some pros for buying either a new or pre-owned vehicle.


Benefits of Buying a New Vehicle 

1. Choice - If you're looking for very specific elements, a new vehicle is the way to go. You can create the model of your dreams, picking every aspect you want your vehicle to include. Pre-owned vehicles can be customized with after market parts, but you are limited as to what you can do. 


2. Better Financing Rates - When you purchase a new vehicle, it will likely come with better financing rates and options. Specials and incentives on new cars give you more options on terms and conditions. 


3. Features - Purchasing a new vehicle ensures that you are getting the latest and most state-of-the-art technology. New vehicles come with a variety of options and features that older models may not have. Newer model vehicles will have the most advanced technology features available.



Benefits of Buying a Pre-owned Vehicle

1. Price - We all want to save money when it comes to buying a vehicle. A vehicle that is a year old or older with additional miles on it will come with a lower price tag. You can typically get more bang for your buck. When purchasing a pre-owned vehicle you can get a higher trim level that comes with more standard features at a lower price. 


2. Avoiding Depreciation - The value on a new vehicle depreciates the moment it leaves the lot and continues to depreciate throughout the first year of ownership. Purchasing a pre-owned vehicle allows you to get a vehicle at its true value and not worry about its value dropping the moment you drive off with it.


3. Certified Pre-owned Programs - Mazda's CPO program allows buyers to get a great vehicle that comes with a warranty even though it is pre-owned. The benefit of buying a brand-new car is the peace of mind knowing you're covered in case anything goes wrong with the vehicle. CPO programs create that same peace of mind with pre-owned vehicles.
