Four Reasons Why Buying Used Brings Big Savings | TLC Motors

By Admin | Posted in Uncategorized on Tuesday, June 6th, 2017 at 3:38 pm


So you’ve done your research on your favorite vehicle brands, found the right model, and you’re ready to buy a new car. Before you make that leap on signing a new lease and locking in a monthly rate – did you know that you could see huge savings on buying used cars for sale?

Not only will used cars save you more money initially AND over time, but they often last just a long and are as durable as a new car.

You’ll Save Big When Buying a Used Car in South Carolina

You can potentially save thousands of dollars on your next car by buying used. Vehicle manufacturers make significant changes to their model lineups every year. Many of these changes can be something as simple as cosmetics, to new technology like large screen infotainment units. Variables like mileage, age, and model number can affect how much you save when you buy used.

When looking at the differences between a new model and one from just a year or two back, you’ll find many of the same high-end features and safety specifications at a much lower price.

Here are some of the biggest advantages to buying a used car, and why you’ll see worthwhile savings:

  1. Used cars are often cheaper to register and insure.

Used cars carry less value than a new vehicle, so you’ll see that initial registration and those monthly insurance payments drop significantly. Furthermore, you can opt out of insurance plans like collision and theft on older cars.

  1. With bigger savings, you can upgrade to a nicer or more impressive model than you could afford new.

That’s right, why settle for a nicely packaged affordable new car, when you can upgrade the total package in amenities, power-driving, upgraded engine and more with a used car model for the same price?

  1. Get exceptional service and satisfaction.

Never buy a used car from an online ad posted by an individual. Unless you’re an expert, or looking to get a sweet deal on a fixer-upper, there’s too much to risk. A reputable dealer will take every used car on the lot through a multi-point inspection, checking the car with a full diagnostic – even down to tire pressure. You can rest assured that the car you’re leaving with is fully operational with a CARFAX report to attest to every bump, scrape and service issue the car has ever had. Furthermore, certified pre-owned vehicles are guaranteed to meet the quality standards of new vehicles from their manufacturer’s specifications, and also include a special warranty to back the claim.

  1. Buying used helps you reduce your depreciation value.

New cars begin losing value the second they are driven out of the dealership lot. In many instances, a new car will depreciate up to 50 percent after only three years of use. When you buy a used car, you are already purchasing it at a reduced cost, so a potential resale would bring you much closer to the actual price you paid for it over a new car.

Speak with your dealer about additional fixed rate plans, trade-ins, financing options and extended warranties for your used car today.
