4 Advantages Of Buying a Used Car Rather Than Buying a New One in Canberra.
We have all done it. We drive past the local prestige car dealership and we look at the car that we know we can’t afford, but we want it. You could go in, throw down the deposit on it, complete the paperwork and drive it home, but your life wouldn’t be worth living when you got there. You would be committing yourself and your family to payments that you just couldn’t make and you would end up taking the car back. However, there is a way that you can get the car of your dreams and that is to go visit your local used car dealer and see if he has the car, but, a few years old and a few thousand miles have been added to the clock. This car that was 50,000 dollars has now dropped in price due to depreciation and is now selling at a much more affordable price. This car is now within your price range and it still looks and performs great.
If the above scenario sounds familiar to you, then there are hundreds of used cars in Canberra at this very moment that have thousands of dollars knocked of the original new price and just waiting for you to snatch them up. Buying a used car offers up many more advantages and we will look at just some of them here today.
- Buying a used car definitely saves you money. The car might be 2-3 years old, but it performs the same as a new one and it certainly still looks great. By making this sensible financial choice, you have saved thousands off the price of a new one and maybe, you can use the money that you would have spent on something else that you have had your eye on. Go on, treat yourself.
- Pre-owned used cars have been checked and then checked again to make sure that they are mechanically sound. A used car dealer’s reputation is at stake and he will not jeopardize it by selling you a dud. Before it is offered for sale, it goes through a multitude of tests and it will only be offered for sale when he can stand over it with confidence.
- Many new cars now come with extended warranties for up to 5 years in some cases. This warranty just doesn’t end when the previous owner sells the car. The warranty is still valid for the duration and many used car dealers have cars that are still under warranty. You get to buy a car still guaranteed by the manufacture for thousands of pounds less. It’s a win-win situation.
- By buying a used car, you are doing your bit for the environment. A new car doesn’t have to be built to meet the demand and so you are helping to cut down on CO2 emissions that would otherwise go up if a car had to be built at the plant.
As you can see, a used car is the way to go and there is really no reason to go new anymore. Get yourself down to your local quality dealer and get yourself a bargain.
