New Car vs Used Car

No Image Selected
When you consider buying a vehicle, it’s always smart to research your purchase well! There are so many questions to ask yourself: do you want new, used or certified pre-owned? Is leasing also an option? Do you want it to be a specific color? If you are buying used, how many miles do you prefer it to have? At the end of all those questions, you also need to ask yourself about a budget, and how much you’d like your monthly payments to be.

The first of these questions is usually about purchasing a new or used vehicle. There can be many pros and cons to each type of purchase, so you need to know what you are looking for.

New Car

First owner

  • You're the one to put the first miles on the car
  • Everything should be be in perfect working order when you get your car
  • No dents, scrapes, chips, or scratches on the car


  • You should be offered a lower interest rate on a new car because it will be worth more than a used car


  • New cars almost always come with a manufacturer's warranty

Better Efficiency

  • Newer cars tend to be more fuel-efficient than older cars

Used Car

Cheaper to buy and own

  • Initial cost for a used car is less than a new car

  • Insurance costs for used cars tend to be cheaper than newer models

  • Most depreciation happens in the first couple years


  • You'll have a much wider selection of vehicles and option to choose from when you buy​ used

Certified Pre-Owned

  • Almost all automakers have great certified pre-owned programs for buyers

Different Vehicles Available
