4 Myths About Used Cars

A trip to the dealership to buy a car can be both and exciting and stressful experience. Not only is this a major purchase that will have an impact on your daily life, but you simply might not know what type of car is right for you. Even choosing between new and used can cause anxiety and uncertainty. It’s possible you have heard horror stories about used cars and how they are not a wise purchase. However, there are a number of reasons why buying used cars is a sound investment. To help you make an informed decision, consider these myths about used cars and what the truth really is.

 

Myth 1: Used Cars Are Pieces of Junk

 

Naturally, you’ll come across a used car here or there that is unsightly, run-down, and simply well below your standards. But for overwhelmingly, you should be able to find plenty of used cars that look nice, drive well, and get you to where you need to go safely and without problems. Used cars come in a variety of makes, models, shapes, and sizes. There will be something for any buyer, and you don’t have to worry about not being able to find something you’ll appreciate and like. Used cars can be quite reliable, almost as much as a new car.

 

Myth 2: You Don’t Know What You’re Getting With a Used Car

 

The reality is, it’s easy to find out a car’s history. A little research and leg work on your end will reveal what accidents the car has been in, what repairs it has had, and how well it has been taken care of. Anytime you buy a used car, you shouldn’t be worried about whether it was abused or adored. You can have all the information about it that you desire.

The opposite is true, actually. Unlike new cars, which lose value the second you press the gas and drive it home from the lot, used cars lose value slowly. This means your purchase price vs. resale value won’t be dramatically different down the line. Used cars are also less expensive, meaning if you take car of it, you should get your money’s worth and more.
