Should I buy a new or used vehicle? It’s the age-old question when it comes to buying a car. Each option has its benefits, but which is best for you?
The benefits of buying a brand new car are fairly straightforward. For one thing, you get to have this new car exactly as you want it. You can custom order it, pick the paint color, and add all of the features you long for the most. With that in mind, you’ll also bet getting the latest technology, and the most advanced safety features out there, which is important for many—especially families. The newest cars are also going to have the latest fuel-efficient technology. With new cars, you won’t have to do much maintenance for a while, but when you do your new car will be covered under a great new warranty. If you’re willing to pay the extra cost for a brand new car, you can save a lot of time and effort while getting exactly what you want.
Obviously the greatest benefit to buying used is the lower cost, from down payment to insurance to taxes. Plus, with certified pre-owned vehicles and vehicle history reports like Carfax, it’s easy to know what you’re getting in a used car. Lots of the used Mitsubishis at Bakersfield Mitsubishi are like-new for a much lower cost. The downside is that you’ll miss out on customization options and the best warranties. However, these aren’t important to everyone. If you’re willing to be a little flexible with the car you choose, and to do a little extra legwork to find one in the condition you need, used is a great option for buyers.
