To Buy New Or Buy Used?

Should I Buy A New Car Or A Used Car?

As you might have heard, car prices are through the roof right now! That goes for new & used cars, the market has gone up and up since the beginning of the pandemic, with little signs of slowing down. The problem is some of us still need to purchase a vehicle.


Maybe your current vehicle isn't cutting it (or worse), or you had a baby and need more space, or you are a first-time car buyer looking to get on the road and pursue your goals. Whatever the reason, you need a vehicle, and you need to know how to get the most out of your money. Don't worry; there are still deals out there, but it is even more important than ever to be careful where you spend your money and purchase where it makes the most sense for you.


Are New Cars Worth It?

The benefit of buying a new vehicle comes in warranties, peace of mind, and service guarantees. You know the vehicle is new and will therefore be ready to drive right off the lot (hopefully). If you can negotiate a good deal, in your price range, with a solid warranty, this is always a great option.


Is It Safe To Buy A Used Car?

Absolutely, it is safe to buy a used car, but you need to know how to approach the situation. We recommend getting a pre-purchase inspection from an ASE-Certified auto repair center. Their mechanics will go over the used vehicle from top to bottom, testing everything thoroughly; producing a detailed synopsis of the condition of your prospective vehicle. Like having a doctor walk you through putting on a band-aid, a pre-purchase inspection makes sure that you enter the situation armed and ready. 


So, in the end, it depends! We would recommend this; because used vehicle prices are so incredibly high at the moment; if you can find a good deal on a new vehicle within your price range, consider that option. However, if a used vehicle is the route you choose, make sure to find an auto repair center that will back you with a thorough pre-purchase inspection.
