Why Buy Only Used Cars?

Most people understand that buying a used car is much smarter than buying a new one. However, many of these people do not know why it is that buying used is so much better. If you need a car for yourself or your family, you should understand why you should only look at used cars in Kansas City. You can then make an educated decision on what car you should get and be smart in your investment on a car.

Reasons to Buy Used

Purchasing a new car is the worst investment a person can make. The moment you drive the new car off the lot, it depreciates in value by an astounding amount. After the first year, the car is only worth 70%of what it originally was worth. This is why buying used is smart. If you get a car that is still fairly young and does not have many miles on it, then you have allowed someone else to make the bad investment. They have paid the full sticker price for the car, and you get an almost-new car for half the price that they did. Even if you have to purchase another car to replace it a little sooner, you are still saving money. Purchasing a used car will also save you a lot of money in insurance premiums. An insurance company will hike its prices up for a new car, so get a used car and save on insurance. You will save money on other fees as well, such as registration fees.

Be Careful

When you look at used cars in Kansas City, be careful in your search. A used car is only a good decision if you find a car that is in good condition. Be sure to fully understand the history of the car and whether all of its parts are still good. Have a mechanic look at the car and take it for a test drive to see what condition it is in before signing anything. Purchasing a lemon is very disappointing, so you need to be smart in how you shop for your used car.

I have only bought a used car once or twice and I had someone with me who knew cars!! I do not know the first thing about them!! Most of my cars hace been new--but more then likely my next one will be used--thank you for the good advice.

I've had several friends buy used cars from Craigslist and have been pretty happy with them. I don't own a car anymore, which saves me a ton of money.

My husband handles all the purchasing decision on whether to buy new or used. Luckily it is one thing I do not have to deal with.

I can't bring myself to pay all that money for a new vehicle when the value will decrease so much so quickly.

I think buying a used car is a great idea. I would recommend always having a mechanic look at the car before you purchase it.
