3 Common Misconceptions About Buying Pre-Owned Cars, Queens, New York

When it comes to buying a vehicle, a new car may seem like the best option, but a safe and reliable car doesn’t have to be fresh from the factory to get you where you need to go. New doesn’t always mean better when it comes to vehicles! Before dishing out the big bucks for an overpriced automobile, consider the following common misconceptions about pre-owned cars.

3 Myths About Buying A Pre-Owned Car

All Used Cars Have Defects 

There are many reasons someone would want to sell their vehicle, and contrary to popular belief, most people don’t decide to trade in their car because they’ve discovered a defect. In fact, most vehicle owners sell their cars to accommodate their changing lifestyles. For instance, new parents may swap out their luxury sports car for a safer SUV that can offer peace of mind and space for a car seat.

Pre-owned carPrevious Damage May Not Be Visible 

Sometimes a well-preserved used car is just that: undamaged. Buyers may assume that a vehicle wouldn’t be on the market unless it’s had extensive repairs. But their fears can easily be put to rest with services like CARFAX, which provides potential buyers with all the information they need about a vehicle’s history.

A Brand-New Car Has A Better Return on Investment 

Did you know a new vehicle loses over a third of its value as soon as it leaves the dealership? A used car with low mileage will save you money and provide the same reliability as a brand-new vehicle.
