“A car loses value as soon as you drive it off the lot.”
“Buying a new car is financially unwise.”
“Used cars are just as good, except cheaper.”
You’ve probably heard these common reasons often used to justify why buying a new car is a terrible idea.
And yes, while buying a gently used certified pre-owned car can be a better option depending on your situation, there are also many reasons why buying a new vehicle is worth considering.
Here are three reasons why you should consider buying a new vehicle:
- Newer Safety Standards: The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is constantly testing vehicles and updating standards for car companies to meet. Manufacturers benefit from meeting or exceeding all of these standards in crash tests because they’re awarded with “Top Safety Pick+” or “Top Safety Pick” designations from the IIHS and other industry awards. Buying a new vehicle ensures that your ride meets the latest safety standards and includes new safety features like automatic emergency braking systems.
- Better Reliability: The gamble with buying a used car (especially if it’s not a certified pre-owned vehicle) is that you don’t always know the full history and true condition of the vehicle. When you buy a new vehicle, you know exactly what you’re getting and there’s usually a good warranty to back you up if anything goes awry.
- Improved Technology: Technology only continues to get better and more advanced every year. Even a car that’s just a few years old may not have all the features and internet connectivity available today. There is even new safety technology that can help you avoid car accidents by warning you when you’re getting close to another car and when you’re veering off the road.
Other perks such as better fuel economy, easy financing options, low interest rates and possible tax credits also increase the appeal of buying new.
If you’re thinking about buying a new vehicle, find a car dealership that will give you fair prices and good service.
