A Buyer’s Guide to New vs Used
If you're considering buying a car, the first question you must ask yourself is whether you want to purchase a new car or a used car. It is important to weigh the pros and cons of both based on your needs and wants. We're here to help you with that.
Buying a New Vehicle
Let's say you decide to purchase a brand new vehicle.
You did it because you want all the bells and whistles of a new vehicle, including factory warranty -- and you're comforted knowing it hasn't been driven by anyone else. But what you didn't know is that the moment you get the keys and drive your brand new car off the lot, it depreciated in value...by a lot.
In fact, new cars have 15% - 35% wiped off their value in the first year and up to 50% or more over the next 3. So now your $30,000 beauty is worth about $25,000 just for driving it off the lot! Which means the dealership won and you just lost out on thousands of dollars.
So what's the alternative?
You come to Automaxx...
Buying a Pre-owned Vehicle
Pre-owned dealerships, like Automaxx, don't just carry old, used trade-ins from other drivers; they carry all years, makes and models from various different suppliers.
In fact, Automaxx even carries 2018 models with low mileage (as low as a couple thousand miles) on them! They still come with all the bells and whistles you were looking for and...factory warranty. So really, you're basically getting a 'new' vehicle for less of the cost.
All of our vehicles come with CarProof reports and full 120-point mechanical fitness assessments, as well. We also offer full warranty and have financing options readily available for all different types or car buyers; those with good credit to those with bad credit. No matter your credit situation, our goal is to get you financed and into a vehicle you need for less money and with bi-weekly payments you can afford.
If your credit isn't in the best standing at the moment, don't let that scare you into believing you won't be approved! We can get you aboard our Credit Rebuilding Program so that you're able to build your credit in a timely matter to get you into the vehicle you need...if you're not already approved for it. You'd be amazed at how quick and easy this process can actually be!
We understand that purchasing a vehicle is a BIG decision! So the one thing you need to keep in mind is that (just as buying anything new) buying new doesn't save you money, it costs you money.
We have the same vehicles with the same options but for less. With that being said, we'll let you decide what the better deal is...new or used?
