08 Aug 2016 in Finance
Buying a new vehicle, which will serve you for many years, is a dream for many people, however a new car costs quite a lot and not everyone has the required amount of money to afford it, whereas we all want to have a car like a BMW 5 right away and drive it whenever and wherever we want. In this case, used cars may come to rescue to the future drivers. Getting a vehicle that is used will allow you to get behind the wheel straight away and you will no longer be dependent on the public transport and those horrific jams during rush hours, especially if we are talking about subways.
If someone believes that buying a used car means buying a vehicle with bad characteristics, which it is high time to write it off and pass for scrap, it is certainly not the case. That is because car owners sell their cars more often due to the fact that they want to buy a new model, a more advanced one, and thus they sell cars that do not have a big mileage. And it is good for a buyer of such a car, because car owners try to sell their car after two or three years after the purchase, so you have every chance to buy a car of excellent quality at an affordable price.
Since cars with mileage are not very expensive, they are perfect to become your first car when you do not have much of a driving experience, as you might drive on the curb, and scratch the body, or cause a collision. It is a pity to damage a brand new car, but it is not that painful to scratch a used car, though many drivers cherish their cars, after all, it is a four-wheeled friend, though, a used one.
A brand new car is often serviced at expensive car repairs, whereas a used car can be fixed at an ordinary service station, where there are some good specialists as well, but which services cost way less money.
Another advantage of used cars is that when buying a used vehicle, the car itself does not lose much value, that is, if you suddenly decide to sell the car some time later because you now have enough money to get better car or for some other reason, your car will be in the same price range, in which you bought it, whereas a new a car loses its value extremely fast in the first two-three years especially if we are talking about some luxury sedan like BMW 7 or a Mercedes S class.
As you can see, getting a used vehicle is not such a bad idea, as it may seem at first. What is more, if you take along a specialist when buying a used car, they will carefully examine the car, and this way you will buy the perfect car, and be satisfied while not having spent a fortune.
