If you need to upgrade your vehicle, and you have been tracking all of the latest advancements in automotive technology, you may be considering buying a new car this time around. Automobile manufacturers devise more effective safety features with every passing year, and many of the newest models also have at least some level of automation. Is purchasing a new car worth it, though? Below, David Vail at HM Brown & Associates in Centennial, CO, explores the advantages of buying both new and used cars.
Should You Get a Used or New Car?
Why You Should Opt for a New Car
There are several reasons to purchase a new car if you’re in the market. In addition to more advanced safety features and the latest smartphone technology, many new cars have driver-assist features that can reduce the risk of serious collisions. They also tend to be more fuel-efficient and will be under warranty, so you can have peace of mind knowing your maintenance costs will be low during the first few years. Additionally, people who want to purchase a new vehicle have a much wider selection to choose from. You can essentially pick the make and model you love, add the extra features that you want, and drive home a satisfied customer.
Why You Should Opt for a Used Car
The greatest advantage of purchasing a used car is the savings. New cars depreciate the moment you drive them off the lot, so if you buy one and plan on selling it in a few years, you can expect to take a serious hit. When you purchase a used car, on the other hand, you are making a car’s depreciation work in your favor. You can get a safe and reliable vehicle that is a few years old for significantly less than a vehicle of the same make and model of the current year.
