3 Reasons to Save Money & Invest in a Quality Used Car February 12, 2018

3 Reasons to Save Money & Invest in a Quality Used Car , Puyallup, Washington

When you’re ready to buy a car, you may be wondering whether to search for a new or used model. While it may be tempting to seek out the shiniest, never-been-driven car you can find, the reality is you can purchase a like-new vehicle for much, much less. Even with the allure of so-called slashed prices on new models, buying a used car is simply a superior investment.

Why You Should Buy a Used Car

1. Secure a Lower Price

A car’s value depreciates by several thousand dollars as soon as someone purchases it. That means even if the driver sells it within a few months, you could buy an essentially brand-new car for significantly less. Meanwhile, you could also buy a four-year-old luxury vehicle for nearly half the price. Then, as you drive a pre-owned car, it will actually depreciate less and at a slower rate than if you bought it new.

2. Avoid Steep Registration Fees

used carMany states, including Washington, calculate your car’s registration fees and RTA tax (for registration tab renewals) based on the value of your vehicle. That means if you purchase a used car for less, you won’t have to pay as much in annual registration fees.  

3. Ensure Quality

These days, vehicles can easily run for well over 100,000 miles. Due to the advanced safety, technological, and performance features that come with virtually all models from the past decade, you can rest easy knowing you are receiving a quality car, even if it’s used. In addition to checking its history, you can also secure your investment with a certification program or extended long-term warranty.
