Buying your next car is a big decision and big investment, so it’s important that you pick the car that you will be happy with and that is right for you. One of the first, and hardest, decisions you will have to make when buying a car is if you want a new car or a used car. Our goal at Toyota Scion of N Charlotte is to make the car buying process and this decision a little easier.  To do this, we’re sharing the advantages and disadvantages to buying both new and used.

Pros and cons of new cars and used cars

While buying a new car could work for some, sometimes a pre-owned is the perfect solution for others. We’re taking the important factors of car buying and breaking them down so you can weigh the pros and cons!
  • Pricing: Obviously you are going to pay more for a brand new car because it has never been driven before and it holds more value. If you’re looking to pay less money for an equally reliable car, a pre-owned car in Charlotte may be the better buy. Pre-owned cars have a depreciated value since they have had previous owners and possibly minor wear and tear.
  • Financing: You are likely to find better financing options when purchasing a new car. Financing companies see brand new cars as less of a risk; therefore will be more lenient with loans and interest rates. Financing a pre-owned car sometimes means higher monthly payments or higher interest rates.
  • Inventory: When looking for a car, selection is limited for Charlotte used cars. What you see is what you get, and you may have to settle or pick another vehicle that has something you want. On the other hand, you will be able to pick and choose on a new car. Select the color, interior, and maybe even available features you would like in a new car!
  • Quality: Buying a brand new car ensures you will have a high quality car because it’s never been owned before and has less chance of having issues. Pre-owned cars can have hidden problems or damages that could wreak havoc later down the road. Our used cars are put through thorough safety inspections, but older cars are bound to have their issues!
