Aside from your home, your vehicle is going to be one of the biggest purchases you will make. Like with any big purchase, you want to make sure that you do your research beforehand. One of the most important decisions you will have to make is whether or not to buy a new or used car. We here at Irvine Auto Center near Garden Grove, CA have a huge selection of both new and used vehicles, so to help you decide, here is a look at the benefits of being a new car vs. a used car.
Buying a new car certainly has its benefits. One of the biggest reasons why people buy new is that the vehicle can be made to order. This means you have the ability to specify certain aspects of the car, including interior features and exterior colors. You also don’t have to worry about whether the car has been in an accident or undergone major repairs considering it is coming straight from the manufacturing line, to the dealership, to your driveway. Coming straight off the line to you means no worries about regular wear and tear.
Brand new cars can also mean brand new warranties from the manufacturers themselves without having to pay any extra. If you enjoy having the latest gizmos and gadgets, new cars will always have the latest ones available, or at least with the option to add them on. Better fuel efficiency and low emissions also go hand in hand with newer cars. The best part is you usually don’t have to sacrifice power for better gas mileage.
For most of us who buy used cars the biggest reason we do so is because of the lower price. With a lower sticker price, many people can afford a nicer model than just the base model of a new vehicle. Along with the lower price used cars don’t depreciate as fast, so they hold their value longer. The age of the car also directly affects insurance rates. Typically, the older the car the lower the insurance rates are going to be (but be sure to check with your specific insurance provider for further clarification). Registration fees are also often based on the age of the car, as well as its value. Purchasing a used car helps you save a bit on registration fees, especially if you purchase a car that is around 5 years old.
