When it comes time to purchase a car, you have a lot of options to consider: the make, model, year, accessories, and the decision of whether to buy used or new. Buying new has a host of benefits that can make your life a lot easier. Here’s why we recommend it.
One of the biggest benefits to buying a new car is the lack of preexisting history. No one has owned it but you. That means no scratches, no dirty seats, no overworked engine parts, no forgotten maintenance issues, and no neglected tires. It’s factory-ready with no accident history.
There’s no telling what’s really happened in a used car, despite what CarFax may say. And pre-owned also means less longevity, since you’re getting it after years of use. You can never be sure how long a used vehicle will continue to perform after your purchase.
Along those same lines, dealerships and manufacturers offer excellent warranties on their new vehicles that cover major systems like the powertrain, braking systems, and electronics for up to 5 years or 100,000 miles. That’s half its life covered for any unseen issues.
Another grand reason to buy a new car are the choices you have. Used vehicles are limited to what’s available from previous owners and also in your area. With a new car, you can choose a higher-end trim, the color, the interior materials, the upgrades (like a more powerful engine or better sound system), and what driver assistance safety features you want included.
Modern vehicles come with hundreds of choices to make the car or truck exactly the way you want it, whether it’s the most premium cabin they offer or the best off-roading capabilities available. Not to mention that you’ll be getting the most up-to-date features the automaker has to offer.
