There are two purchasing options available to customers when they have decided that it is time to upgrade their current car, truck or SUV; new and pre-owned. There are advantages to both and evaluating your needs and priorities will help you make an informed decision when the time comes.
For some people buying used isn’t that appealing as they have their heart set on a shiny new vehicle that hasn’t been owned by another person before. Buying a new vehicle also comes with the advantage of reduced maintenance, as it will not likely require any specialty maintenance for the first tens of thousands kilometres. This is not to say that they won’t require any maintenance as oil changes, tire rotations and tune-ups would still be required. However, there should be no sudden surprises with the car’s mechanical parts that could leave you stranded on the side of the road. A new vehicle will also come with full warranty coverage on its mechanical parts and most manufactures will also offer roadside assistance in case you have a breakdown.
If you are not married to the idea of purchasing a new vehicle there is a wide selection of pre-owned cars that offer their own unique advantages. A pre-owned vehicle will not depreciate in value as much as a new vehicle and the vehicle’s warranties will be transferable to the second owner if there is some time or kilometres remaining on it. When a pre-owned vehicle is purchased from a dealership you may also be able to take advantage of the manufacturer’s certified pre-owned programs. These programs can include an extensive safety inspection and certification by the dealership as well as an extended warranty which adds additional peace of mind to your purchase of a pre-owned vehicle.
