Buying a car is a big investment and a major commitment. For most people it involves getting a loan and putting down a big chunk of change. Many debate whether it’s better to purchase new from the dealer or better to just go with a used car. Everyone has an opinion on the matter but the fact is that purchasing new is the smarter move.
Purchasing new will allow for better financing options and a lower interest rate. While the initial cost of a new car may be more, in the long run it’ll save money.
A used car means missing out on features that have been improved in newer models. Often times, these features will be safety related. Airbags and car safety has improved greatly in the last several years so buying used may mean missing out on these developments. When driving in crazy Utah snowstorms, you’ll be glad you have those new safety features to protect you in the event of an accident.
Purchasing new usually means reliability. No matter how many tests and checks are done, a used car still has miles put on it, meaning wear and tear. A new car allows for certainty in where it has been and where it will be likely to go.
