Buying a car is all about making decisions, starting with a big one: Should you buy a new car or a used one? In our latest video, we’ve listed five reasons why buying a new vehicle might be your best bet.
If you’re the kind of owner who likes to buy a new vehicle and drive it for a while, then the depreciation of a brand-new truck or car won’t bother you too much. After all, the value of your car will even out over a long period of time. So if you plan to keep your car for a while, you may want to consider a new one.
If you’re dismayed at the idea that your car had a previous life with a messy owner, you might also want to consider a new car. After all, that’s the only way to ensure your vehicle has been taken care of to the highest possible standard of cleanliness.
Technology is another reason to choose a new vehicle over a used one. If you want all the latest technology, gadgets and safety features, you have little choice but to choose a new model instead of a used one.
New cars also require fewer repairs than older ones. If you’re not eager to deal with the occasional trip to the shop, then a used car might not be for you. And even if your new vehicle breaks down, it’ll have a comprehensive warranty to help keep your costs down. You may even get a shiny new loaner car to drive while yours is in the shop.
Finally, incentives sometime ensure that it makes good sense to buy a new vehicle over a used one. If manufacturer incentives, dealer deals, tax rebates or attractive finance rates come around, you may be better off financially buying a new vehicle rather than a used one — especially if you have good credit.
