Buying New vs. Used Cars


Buying New vs. Used Cars

The process of shopping for your next car comes with many options. One of the biggest options is whether you should buy a new or used car. While there are benefits to each side, 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 used car.

Benefits of Buying a New Car

1. Choice - If you're looking for very specific elements, a new car is the way to go. You can create the model of your dreams, picking every aspect you want a car to include. Used cars can be altered, but you're limited as to what you can do, unlike a new car.

2. Better Financing Rates - When you purchase a new car, it will likely come with better financing rates. Specials and incentives on new cars allow you to more easily go about purchasing the vehicle.

3. Features - Purchasing a new car ensures that you are getting the latest and most state-of-the-art features. New cars are further upgraded each new model year with bigger and better features, too.

Benefits of Buying a Used Car

1. Price - All of us want to save money in any way we can. One way to save money when purchasing is to look at used cars. A car that has a few extra years and miles on it will come with a much lower price tag. You will also get a lot more bang for your buck. When purchasing a used car you can get a higher trim level that comes with more standard features at a substantially lower price, too. 

2. Avoiding Depreciation - New cars' value depreciates the moment they leave the lot and continue to depreciate significantly throughout the first year of ownership. Purchasing a used car 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 car buyers to get a great car that comes with a warranty even though it is used. 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 used cars.
