The Advantages of Buying a Used Car

Explore the benefits of purchasing a pre-owned vehicle

New vehicles are alluring, but the price and hassle that go along with a new vehicle purchase are not so enticing. Used vehicles are attractive to those looking to save money without a specific aesthetic preference. Buying used does not have to mean you sacrifice quality or good looks, though. Contrary to popular belief, you can get used vehicles with nearly the same look and feel of a new model at a fraction of the cost. Some used vehicles even come with dealership warranties or remaining manufacturer warranties passed on from the original owner. You have so many options for used vehicle purchases, many of which buyers are completely uninformed of.

Popular Benefits of Used Models

Each used vehicle has its inherent advantages for Helena customers, but some used model benefits are common among all pre-owned vehicles. Look at our brief list of used vehicle advantages below to see a few of the most prevalent.

Financial Benefits

One of the most obvious and desirable benefits of a used vehicle purchase is the lower price, reduced cost of add-ons, and fewer fees. Used vehicles have already experienced their initial depreciation, so investing in a used model is a financially sound choice. Many used models are also already upgraded with various trims and packages, so buyers are not out the extra cost of those add-ons, either. Sales tax, insurance, and other costs are generally lower for pre-owned vehicles, as well. In general, a used vehicle is priced based on its model year, condition, and mileage, which allows buyers to be in control of their purchase. Those who want a lower price may not be as concerned about a few dings and dents. Yet, for those interested in a like-new model, a higher price that is still lower than the price new is feasible.

Reliable and Proven

No used model comes across Placer Subaru's lot without a thorough inspection. One pitfall that keeps buyers from considering a used vehicle purchase is that buyers assume the extra wear and tear and previous ownership have been detrimental to the condition of the vehicle. In all actuality, used models are scrutinized even more closely than new models because of these predispositions. Buyers can be confident that every used model available at Placer Motors has met our rigorous inspection process and high standards.

Environmentally Friendly

One often overlooked benefit of a used vehicle purchase is their positive impact on our environment. While many hybrid and electric models are touted for these advantages, realistically, all used model purchases lessen the impact of production on our environment. Less frequent demand for new vehicles results in less frequent production, saving our environment from being subjected to excess carbon dioxide generation. Even if you did not know it, used vehicles are sustainable and responsible choices.

Reduced Fees for Annual Registration

To ensure your vehicle is legal to drive on the roads of Townsend, MT, many municipalities require annual registration in a local and state database. This comes with set fees to ensure compliance. Used vehicles are not as costly to register as newer vehicles, which benefits buyers on a budget. This is another benefit of pre-owned vehicles that is easy to overlook because it is not frequent.
