Check out some of these things you may not have known about purchasing a used car over a new one!
We know that money isn’t everything. But, it sure does help. When you purchase a used car, truck or SUV, you’ll save yourself thousands of dollars. Not only will a purchase like this save you money outright, but some hidden factors can greatly affect the value of your brand new vehicle. The worst factor being depreciation. New vehicles depreciate quickly. Did you know that a vehicle is estimated to lose up to 19% of it’s value in the course of just one year of ownership? In three years, it’s estimated to only be worth 54% of it’s original value! When you factor in things likes sales tax, insurance, and even registration fees, you’re spending a fortune for a car that will be worth almost half its value in only three short years. Additionally, used vehicles often times save you money on things like this! With figures like these in mind, it paints a clear imagine of why so many people are purchasing used car over new ones.
