For some car buyers, a certified pre-owned risk-free car from Matt Taylor Kia of Boardman may be the best option - and a Kenny Ross car comes with a lot of advantages. Here are just a few of the reasons to buy used!
USED CARS ARE CHEAPER
This one's a no-brainer. Obviously, buying used comes with a smaller price tag. So, that sports car you've had your eye on is within reach if it has a few miles on it already.
It's a well-known fact that new cars start to lose value the instant you drive them off the lot. Some cars can lose as much as 40% of their value within the first year! When you go used, your car's depreciation rate is significantly slower and you can be confident that your car will retain more value relative to price.
LOW INSURANCE RATES
Another way that pre-owned cars save you money, besides the initial sticker price, is in insurance costs. Used cars cost less, insurance rates generally are less as well.
YOU CAN STILL GET A WARRANTY
Many used vehicles may still have the factory warranty included. If a pre-owned car was traded in after only 2 years and the factory warranty is 5 years, guess what? Depending on mileage, you still have up to 3 years of factory coverage!
AVOID ADDITIONAL COSTS
With new cars, dealers pay for the shipment of their new inventory and this adds an additional charge on top of the sticker price of the car - potentially a few hundred bucks. There are no shipping costs with used cars, so you won't have to worry about getting "surprise" charges.
Also, many used cars come with options like coatings, roof-racks or pinstripes that increase the vehicles sticker price. Once again, these "extras" don't change the price of a used car nearly as much as they do a new car.
Sure, you can't choose your options or trim level like you can with new vehicles, but if you've been looking for a style or model that's no longer being built, then used is your best option. Shop used options from Matt Taylor Kia of Boardman.
