Undecided whether to buy a new or a used car? We want to help you make up your mind. While new cars are great, it could make more financial sense to look for used cars. With a pre-owned car, you’ll:

Skip the Depreciation
In their first four years, new cars may lose up to 40 percent of their value. And if you paid a pretty penny for your ride, this depreciation can sting. You can avoid it, however, with an older model.
Get a Reliable Vehicle
Just because a car’s a little older doesn’t mean it won’t be able to perform well for many years to come. Of course, it’s important to think about the brand, as some are more reliable than others.
Get a Low-Mileage Vehicle
At Scott Lot, we have a special inventory of models with less than 20,000 miles on their odometers. This means that these newish used cars have been nicely broken in, without being worn down.
Have Warranty Protection
In addition to a used car, you may also want to think about a certified pre-owned model. These have to pass a rigorous inspection and – depending on the manufacturer – can come with long-term warranties.
If you’ve decided a used model is the right call, check out our online inventory to see the vehicles currently in stock. Then come down to our used car dealership near Emmaus to take a test drive.
