It’s nice to have a brand-new car with all the bells and whistles and the peace of mind that comes with knowing that it will work great every time, but new cars don’t’ work with everyone’s lifestyle and budget.

If you are still on the fence about purchasing a used car versus purchasing new, check out these reasons it’s smart to choose the former option.
- Warranty – Many car buyers are under the false impression that a used car doesn’t come with a warranty of any kind. This couldn’t be true. All cars are still under their original warranty even after changing ownership. In many cases, you can also purchase a supplemental warranty, especially if the used car is certified.
- Carfax – Thanks to the internet, you can get a complete idea of an automobile’s history when it comes to maintenance and accidents. In the past, it was much easier for used car dealers to hide when a vehicle had an ongoing problem with an oil leak or had been totaled. Today, consumers have complete transparency when purchasing used.
- Premium Options – When you purchased used, you get more car for a lower price. If you want a car with as many bells and whistles as possible, consider purchasing one that is a couple of years old versus brand new. Chances are they are almost identical to the current make and model with almost all the same safety, performance, and entertainment features.
