If you're debating on buying a new car or a used car, there are a lot of things to consider: how much do you want to pay, what car do you want, what technology features are important to you, what do you need the car for. Here are a few of the reasons many people select a used or certified pre-owned car rather than a brand-new vehicle:
Lower Sticker Price
Plain and simple, one of the best reasons to buy used is the lower cost. No matter what model you're interested in, odds are there's a used version of it somewhere out there. Why is it so cheap? Although there's the obvious wear and tear that goes along with driving, most vehicles lose up to 40% of their value in the first year because of lower demand. If you decide that you don't need the latest technology, then you can save big.
Believe it or not, most manufacturers make significant changes between different model years, especially when a new generation is released. Whether you love the practical styling of the 2009 Audi A3 or the sporty look of the 2014 A5, you will be able to get what you want since there are so many model years to choose from. Unless you have the budget for a special order, buying used might just be the best way to get exactly what you want.
More Info, Improved Technology
The internet has redefined the way people shop for used cars. Although you may have heard horror stories from older generations, finding what you want is easier than ever. South Hills Audi has a user-friendly website and excellent staff to provide you with detailed information before you buy. Plus, with sites like Kelley Blue Book and CarFax, it's easy to stay informed about what you're getting.
Less Worry and More Fun
According to Car and Driver, buying used often means less stress. You don't have to worry about parking near shopping carts, driving on gravel, or bringing food and drinks into the car. Of course, we still would, but that's just because we love Audis of all years. Many drivers, however, find it easier to simply kick back and enjoy their new ride when it's used.
