Sometimes when people picture a used car, they imagine a rusty old banger sitting in the corner of a dealership's lot. Thankfully, this couldn't be further from the truth - in fact, buying a used car often has more benefits than buying new.
The first and most obvious perk when buying a used car is the savings. By choosing to purchase a used car, you'll get a much better deal than you would if you were to buy the same model straight out of the factory. Buying a used car will not only save you a lot of money in terms of initial price, but also by avoiding the huge depreciation that comes with buying new. The moment you drive your car out of the lot, its value will begin to depreciate, and this is most true of brand new cars - in fact, new cars can depreciate in value by as much as 40% within the first year.
Not only do new cars lose a large portion of their financial value immediately, they are also the pride and joy of their owners. This means owners feel a sucker punch when normal wear and tear inevitably happens in a way that it wouldn't if it were a used car.
If you choose to buy a used car instead of a new car, you also have a much wider range of inventory to choose from. Do you have your eye on a 2005 Land Rover or a 1973 classic Triumph? If you're hoping to find an older model in new condition, chances are you won't find it. If you choose to buy a used car, you won't be limited to recent models as you would be if you were buying new.
