Do I buy a used car or a new car? It is a question almost everyone has to anwser at least once life in their life. More specifically, you might ask yourself about a used Mitsubishi vs. a new one. It is a simpler answer that you might expect. You just need to make sure you have a good understanding of the advantages each option offers as well as an in depth analysis of your current financial situation. We here at Bakersfield Mitsubishi can help you especially with the later, as we provide a lot of great information on why you might want to buy a used Mitsubishi car instead of a new one.
The most obvious and talked about advatnage of choosing to buy a used car instead of new is that you easily can save money. Considering aspects like condition, mileage, if you choose to purchase with us and a multitude of other factors, contributes to the amount you'll have to pay for the used car you want.
Another contributing factor to why many people decide to buy a used Mitsubishi instead of new one, goes hand in hand with saving money. As you can see from the above example, you could easily save $9,000 buying an older model used car so logically you'd have more room in your budget for a nicer used car than you might have thought possible. You could take that $9,000 difference and choose to get the Outlander Sport SE instead, or go up a trim level on whatever used car it is you're considering.
For the frugal shopper, the money saving saving advantages of used cars vs. new cars are exemplified in the fact a used car won’t suffer nearly as much depreciation as a new car. According to Consumer Reports new car “models typically lose about 47 percent of their value in the first three years, compared with 24 percent over the next three [years].” That means if you buy a car three years removed from being new, it has already taken its greatest loss in value. It also means if you choose to sell your used car, you're likely getting back more of what you paid for it because less deprecciation has occured.
While all this information can be useful, we know it can be a lot to decide by yourself. That's why you should give our used car department a call to speak with a sales representative and explore your options as a customer of Bakersfield Mitsubishi.
