Benefits of Buying Used Cars
There are many advantages to buying used cars. The most obvious benefit is that it will cost less than a new vehicle. Since it is less expensive, you can buy a much nicer automobile than you could if it were brand new. Avoiding depreciation is another good reason to buy used. When you buy a new car it loses value the moment you drive it off the lot. In fact, your car may lose 40 percent or more of its initial value in the first year. Few people are willing to take this financial hit. Although depreciation continues over the years, it becomes less and less as time goes by. By purchasing a certified used Mercedes-Benz, you’re undeniably getting the most bang for your buck.
Other financial benefits to buying used automobiles involve insurance rates, which are typically cheaper for pre-owned vehicles. There’s also the issue of taxes. Depending on the state, a new car is subjected to a state sales tax which can be hundreds if not thousands of dollars. Research the laws in your state to determine if new cars require a sales tax to be added to the sticker price. Used cars may not carry any sales tax at all. Your annual registration fee is also based on your car’s value. Registration fees are the highest during the first three years of your car’s life and level off after five years. Buying a five year old car can save you about a thousand dollars.
Quality Used Vehicles
You still may not be comfortable about buying a used car even though today’s autos are built better than ever. In fact, most cars built today are expected to last for 100,000 miles or more. You can opt for a vehicle that has been through the rigorous certification process that allows them to be advertised as Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) automobiles. First, each CPO auto must pass a number of inspection items. If anything is wrong or below standard, it is repaired or replaced. In other words, the used vehicle is brought as close as possible to the condition it was in as a new car. The manufacturer’s warranty for CPO vehicles is much more generous than that offered for a non-certified vehicle. For example, every Certified Pre-Owned Mercedes-Benz comes with 24-hour Roadside Assistance and a one year unlimited mileage warranty that can be extended for two more years.
Finally, we welcome you to visit our dealership to test drive the used vehicle of your choice. Just call or come by at your convenience and our friendly sales staff will answer all your questions about the auto and set you up for a test drive. We hope to see you soon.
