Why Buy a Used Vehicle?
Buying a used vehicle comes with many appealing benefits. One of the biggest advantages is the cost savings, as a used model can save you thousands. When you buy a brand-new vehicle, the cost often includes extra fees. As soon as you drive away from the dealership, the car can lose up to 20% of its value in depreciation. During the first year, most cars will lose another 10% of their value, resulting in a 30% drop in value after 12 months of ownership.
A used vehicle doesn't depreciate at nearly the same level as a new one, so you can avoid that hit by opting for pre-owned. Insurance prices tend to be higher for new models as well, so you can save every month when insuring a used car. If you're looking for specific features, such as active driver aids or high-end tech equipment, you can stretch your budget further with a used car. A luxury model might be within reach if it's a few years old.
At CarSmart of Farmington, our goal is to help every customer find the model that's right for them. We understand the concerns that can come with buying pre-owned, but we strive to alleviate the stress with our extensive vetting process. Every used vehicle goes through a detailed inspection performed by one of our experienced automotive technicians. We'll make sure it passes our rigorous inspection process before we put it up for sale, so you can buy with confidence.
Certified Pre-Owned Models
Many of the top automotive manufacturers offer certified pre-owned programs, which come with additional benefits. In order to qualify, a vehicle must meet certain requirements related to its mileage, age, and condition. Some of the benefits you might get when buying a certified pre-owned vehicle include extended warranty coverage, complimentary emergency roadside assistance, and/or a more detailed inspection. Our certified pre-owned models also come with a lifetime powertrain warranty. This includes coverage for the engine, transmission, front and rear drive axle assembly, transfer unit, and turbo/supercharger (if applicable).
