Benefits of Buying a Used Car

Don't Waste Your Money on a New Car When You Can Get a Great Used Car at a Great Price!

When you need to get behind the wheel of a new vehicle, you are faced with a tough decision. Should you buy a new car, or should you buy a used car? There are many benefits of either decision, however, if you are looking for the better investment for your dollar, you might want to consider buying a used car.

Many of the benefits of buying a used car are related to the price. There is a significant difference in sticker price between a used car and a new car. You may think that you are getting a better deal for your money with a new car because it is more likely to come with all of the latest features, but that is not always the case. When you purchase certain new vehicles, you might have to pay more for the features you want.

When you shop for used cars, you have more options to choose from. You can pick between any make and model of almost any year. This gives you a better chance of finding exactly the right features you want in a car. Also, because there are more options out there, you will have a better chance of finding what you want for just the right price. Used car prices can easily fluctuate depending on how many miles are on the engine, how many similar vehicles the dealer has in stock, or even the color of the vehicle.

Due to the lower purchase price of a used vehicle, you might find that it is easier to afford to finance your used vehicle. When you take into consideration the lower price tag and down payment, your monthly financing payments are going to be lower than if you were to purchase a new vehicle. Similarly, when you insure your used car, you may find that the insurance rates on a used vehicle tend to be lower than a new vehicle.

You might think that if you choose to purchase a used car that you will be stuck driving an old beater that has been taken through the ringer. That is not true. Many used cars today are sold as certified used vehicles. This means that they are put through inspections by the manufacturers and have to meet certain standards before they sold as certified. If you purchase a certified used vehicle, you are certain to get a well maintained, low mileage, used vehicle that probably hasn’t seen any major repairs. Though you are likely to pay more for a certified vehicle, it will give you peace of mind about the history of your used car while still being cheaper than purchasing a new car.

There are many benefits of buying a used car, so if you are searching for a new ride, don’t limit yourself to new vehicles. Come in to Rock River Block in Rockford, IL, today to browse our used inventory. We’ll help you find just the right used car for you.
