As you embark on your car shopping journey, you’ll likely consider your options from both new and used vehicles along the way. While there are certainly some advantages to choosing a brand-new vehicle, there are also several benefits to buying a quality used car or SUV that may make it a better overall value.

Saving Money

No, we’re not just talking about being able to save money on the sticker price when you choose a used vehicle over something new. We’re talking about long-term value and depreciation. When you buy a brand-new vehicle, depreciation in the first three years can cost up to half of the vehicle’s original value. However, when you choose a high-quality used vehicle, you can buy into something that will both cost you less and depreciate less over time, meaning you lose less money when it’s time to trade or sell the vehicle years down the road. For Staten Island drivers that don’t often rack up the miles, it’s a great way to save money in both the short term and long term, and it’s something you should consider if you find a used vehicle that speaks to your needs.

Lower Insurance Costs

Typically, a used car will cost less to insure than something brand new of a similar category and value. This means yet another way to help save money to do the things you love, and also means you can spring for additional coverages to protect your vehicle from a wider variety of potential hazards.
