New vs. Used Cars: Everything You Need to Know

If you're in the market for an automobile, not only do you have to decide which car you want to drive, but you also must decide whether you want to buy a brand-new or a used car. At Capital Chevrolet in Calgary, Alberta, we can help you make the right decision for your wants and needs. Here are some differences between buying a new car and buying a used car for you to keep in mind.

Advantages of Buying a New Car

First and foremost, when looking for a new car, shopping is more straightforward. There is no need to compare the same model when buying a new one. They all have zero miles and comprehensive new manufacturer warranties. New vehicles have manufacturer warranties that cover at least the first three years and are incorporated into the price, so you won't have to pay extra.

Another benefit of buying new is that often technology is better in new cars. New cars offer the latest safety, connection, and fuel-efficiency technologies. If you value the latest technology, a new car may be worth considering.

Buying a brand-new car can bring peace of mind and confidence. You will not have to worry about any hidden flaws, accident history, or service issues. Furthermore, you can get the precise make and model you want when buying new. That means you can get your preferred colour, features, and extras that make it your home away from home.

Advantages of Buying a Pre-owned Car

Since pre-owned cars are more affordable, they can help you increase your savings or upgrade to a more aesthetically pleasing model that you may not be able to get new. Your insurance premiums could be lower as well. Furthermore, used cars have a higher resale value due to less depreciation. Even with more dings, scrapes, and mileage, you'll probably make back a similar amount than if you were to sell the same car almost new.

Another benefit of buying used is that you can shop the different years of a model you prefer and get a model or style that is no longer in production or has previous features that are no longer available. With this, you can negotiate various used models' prices and find the best deal across multiple outlets.
