Purchasing a used vehicle can be a stressful experience. Along with all of the stresses that occur in a new car purchase–negotiating with a dealer, selecting a vehicle, dealing with salespeople, who are often aggressive, and making a purchase that will last a year–a used vehicle buying experience can test even the most able negotiators. Here are some reasons why.
- Sometimes don’t have a vehicle history report
- Vehicle problems may be ignored by the dealer
But many Americans are still considering purchasing a used vehicle and here are some reasons why.
- Used vehicles often come at a lower cost than new vehicles
- Used vehicles may come with better lease terms
- Used vehicles, with proper maintenance, can still last year
If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, consider looking at used cars or leasing. They’re easier on the budget than purchasing a brand new car and can often have many of the same features you’re looking for in a new car. Leasing a new car is also possible, if you don’t want to lock into a car payment or can’t afford one at the moment. You can also take a look at certified pre-owned vehicles, which many car dealers offer now. These vehicles are backed by manufacturers and apply to newer used cars
