Used vs. New Cars
Some like it new and some like it used; these are all personal preferences which are valid. Consider either of these preferences, what do facts tell us about choosing a new car over a used car – or vice-versa? We bring you the answers from Yonkers Automall, your Westchester County Preowned Car dealership in Mt Vernon.
Merits of Buying Used Cars
#1: Buying used cars are advantageous because they do not eat deep into your pocket. You could buy a used car today and have some change for another purchase tomorrow. With the average car ownership rate at 13 during an individual’s lifetime (as confirmed by the National Automobile Dealers Association), the savings potentially add up after the first 3 purchases.
#2: A used car does not depreciate like a new car. Because it has been driven as a new car by the previous owner, most of the depreciation would have been written off from that time. This means you get more value from your purchase.
#3: You could resell your used car for the same or almost the same amount you bought it off the lot of a dealership. This is simply because the depreciation on it, as aforementioned in the point above, has slowed down.
#4: Production of some cars or models of cars get discontinued after a while. With used cars, even discontinued cars remain in the market for a long period of time. Therefore, this exposes a buyer to a wide selection of different brands, models, and trims of cars. Essentially, you get spoiled for choice with a used car purchase – and this is a great thing and greater value for your dollars.
