Why Buy New?

  • Custom-Made: Optional equipment, engine choices, and exterior or interior colors will all be exactly the way you want it with no need to compromise.
  • Brand New: An obvious advantage, since a new car has been in no accidents, has no wear and tear, and enjoys a clean history. And there’s the added bonus of that new car smell.
  • Warranty: Your vehicle is untouched and so is the warranty. Without paying extra, the best warranty is provided by the manufacturer when the car is new.
  • Most Recent Features: Newer cars are equipped with newer technology, and that means anything from enhanced multimedia and navigation systems, more comfort features, and more efficient engines with lower emissions.
  • Advanced Safety Systems: Safety equipment will also be top of the line. Stricter laws mean that many safety systems havebecome mandatory, and those willing to spend a little more will enjoy the latest driver-assistance technology.
  • Flexible Financing: Cost might be an issue, but banks and manufacturers offer lower financing rates on new vehicles.
  • Maintenance: Many new cars come with the added incentive of free scheduled maintenance for a certain time or amount of miles.
  • Location: All the newest models are found right at the dealership,  so there’s no need to wear out your shoes tracking down the right model.

Why Buy Used?

  • Cost: The most immediate benefit – a used vehicle is almost always going to be less expensive. You could save overall or choose to step up to a better model. You’ll also avoid the steep depreciation that happens right after purchase – often as much as 40% within the first year.
  • Insurance Rates: Most people think that insurance rates will be higher for a used model, but most often insurance rates are lower overall.
  • Choice: You won’t be able to build a used car to order, but you can choose from a wider range of years and models.
