Pre-Owned Vehicles Aren’t Safe

You may have heard that pre-owned cars aren’t as safe or reliable as new models. While technology is constantly changing and evolving, cars are built better today than they ever have been before. You always want to do your research, but with a bit of routine service and car care, you’ll be able to keep your pre-owned vehicle driving safely and reliably for a long time to come.

Pre-Owned Vehicles Will Cost Down the Line

One of the primary advantages of purchasing a pre-owned vehicle is the savings. Your down payment will be smaller than with a brand-new car, along with your monthly payments, in-between costs, and accrued interest rates. It may be said that those costs will catch up on future repair and replacement needs, but don’t let that worry you. As long as you care for your vehicle correctly, you’ll unlikely have any surprise repair costs to deal with.

Pre-Owned Vehicles Lose Most of Their Value

It’s actually the opposite. Most depreciation, or vehicle value loss, affects new cars. Pre-owned vehicles maintain more of their value, which means you’ll see more capital returned if you plan to sell or trade-in down the line.
