Perks Of Buying Used Cars

If you're planning to replace your current vehicle, then you've probably heard many recommendations on buying a new car. There are definitely some excellent perks to buying a new vehicle, but buying a used car has unique financial benefits as well.

A few benefits of buying a used vehicle are listed below. Everyone's situation will vary, but hopefully you'll find this information useful as you begin to shop for vehicles.


A primary benefit of buying used is affordability. Because a used car is indisputably less-expensive than its new version, a loan’s down payment and monthly payments will be significantly lower than they would be for a new car. It's also more doable to pay for a used car out-of-pocket, so you won’t have to worry about monthly payments. In addition, a used car could provide more features or a nicer model than what you had before for less than a new car.

Lower Insurance Rates

In addition to low monthly payments, you'll find that protection for your used vehicle will also be less expensive. Insurance rates are calculated according to the value of your car, and because a used car is more affordable than a new car, insurance is also more affordable.

Slower Depreciation

A new car loses much of its value within the first few years of ownership. While a car’s value constantly depreciates, it tends to level out more after those years. A used car will likely have experienced this steep decline in value by the time you purchase it, which means you’ll pay significantly less.


It’s common for models to be discontinued in the automotive industry, even popular models. When you buy used, you won’t have to worry about this as much. In fact, you can find cars with various trims or features that may no longer be available on those models. Buying used provides you with many options since you aren't limited by the features and trims of a certain year.
