Pros and Cons of Buying a New or Used Car
Anyone who has ever bought a car has more than likely weighed the pros and cons of buying new or used. Either one can be a great choice, but how do you know which decision is right for you? At Loeber Motors we have the right people to lead you in the right direction when picking a Mercedez-Benz or Porsche. If you’re filled with indecision, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.
If you’ve got trust issues, a large inheritance or the dead set intent on impressing the people around you, chances are you won’t think twice about buying new. Being the first person to own the vehicle means that you won’t have to worry about the driving habits of its previous owners. There will be no need for maintenance for the first few thousand miles, and even after that there’s a good chance that your car is covered by the warranty from the manufacturer. A new car is also going to look sharp. There’s no need to settle on what’s already there, because you pay for what you want. Want a green car with XM radio and a sunroof? Go for it.
The most obvious factor associated with buying used is that you’ll be saving a hefty chunk of cash. Cars lose value the minute they drive off the lot and every mile afterwards, even if there is no dip in quality. Used cars are ideal for the parent looking to get their first-time driver a cheap yet reliable vehicle. For someone concerned about their insurance skyrocketing, a used car is your best bet for cheaper insurance. If you’re looking to go green, consider this: studies have shown that between 12-28 percent of the carbon dioxide emissions generated during the lifespan of a vehicle happen during the manufacturing and shipment of the vehicle. One less new car means one less heap sitting in a scrapyard years later.
There’s a lot to consider when making your decision, which is why our sales staff at Loeber Motors will take you through the advantages of each so you can make an educated decision. Your satisfaction is our top priority, so come with questions and we’ll provide you with the answers.
