3 Benefits of Buying a Used Car

Buying a Car

At Albany Motorcars, we often have drivers around Albany, Leesburg, and Tifton, GA, ask us about the benefits of buying a used car. In fact, there are many benefits, including:

  • A used car can have a lower ticket price.
  • Used cars may maintain more of their original value.
  • Used car inventories may include rare or discontinued models and features.

Keep reading our guide to learn more about why drivers like you are buying used cars. Then, contact the team at Albany Motorcars to come check out our pre-owned inventory in person.

1.A Used Car Can Have a Lower Ticket Price.

Buying a Vehicle at DealershipIn general, local drivers love that used cars tend to have a lower ticket price than their newer counterparts. Many shoppers may choose to put this extra financial wiggle room toward a higher trim level, use it to shorten their loan term, or simply pay less every month than they might have if they bought the car new.

The finance center team at your local dealership will work with you to help you get the right auto financing options. So, go ahead and reach out at any time with questions about buying a used car.

2.Used Cars May Maintain More of Their Original Value.

Used cars have already experienced the largest percentage of their expected depreciation, which is why they tend to have a lower ticket price.

This means that, if you purchase a pre-owned vehicle now and plan to trade it in at a later date, it’ll likely have a trade-in value that’s closer to what you initially paid for it than a new car might.

3.Used Car Inventories May Include Rare or Discontinued Models and Features.

Unlike new cars, used car inventories aren’t limited to any specific model year. So, you’re probably more likely to stumble upon a rare car in the used inventory.

Also consider any models, features, or design elements you like that have been discontinued in modern automobiles. The vehicles in your local dealership’s used car inventory may include these features, which you won’t find in the new car lot.

Used Cars and the Benefits of Certified Pre-Owned

Multi-point Inspection by a Certified TechnicianCertified pre-owned (CPO) is something else to consider if you’re shopping for a used car. To qualify for the Mercedes-Benz CPO program, these pre-owned vehicles must be no more than six model years in age. They also must have no more than 75,000 miles in their odometers.

In addition to that, they come with the following benefits:

  • Completion of a thorough multi-point inspection by a certified technician
  • Limited factory warranty
  • 24/7 personal roadside assistance

Plus, all Mercedes-Benz CPO vehicles on our lot include a complimentary CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™ for your shopping convenience. This gives you a complete picture of the car’s life, including number of previous owners, maintenance records, mileage history, and more.
