If you are on a budget you will most definitely have to choose between second hand cars. Don’t despair, even though facing the impossibility of buying a new car may be disappointing, but realizing that our needs can be met by buying a good used car can be as equally cathartic. In less than half price you can buy a used car three, four or five years old which is larger, has better equipment and specifications as for the similar price, or even slightly higher, you could get a smaller, and poorly equipped new car. But, buying a used car comes with certain risks, since you are buying a car that someone else owned and drove, so it is important to check the condition of the car before the purchase, whether or not, and how, it was serviced. One of the biggest advantages in buying a used car is choosing a product to which many have different experiences; they met all of its advantages as well as disadvantages that are no longer a secret neither to the drivers nor the mechanics.
First of all you have a lot more to choose from, for example in 2006 about 16,5 million new cars were sold, but in that same year around 42,5 million used cars found new owners and a sole reason for this are the increase of choice and very attractive prices. Even though used cars typically don’t have the same warranties as the new ones, original factory warranty of a new car is transferrable to a second owner, usually at no charge. By buying a car from a licensed dealer you can purchase a late model with the original warranty.
As good as new – another thing that works in the favor of buying a second hand car is an extension of warranty for used cars. The idea was started with luxury brands, such as Lexus and Mercedes-Benz, and became a very popular alternative to buyers. Keep in mind that as soon as you drive off the new car from the salon its value decreases for about ten to twenty percent which is not the case with used cars. Look for a car that doesn’t have a lot of mileage and is in good condition, they don’t require a lot of service and are much cheaper than new ones. For example, buying a used midsize car could save even more than fifty percent compared to the price of a new car.
So, people who want the most for the money they have, and money is of the essence, have a great chance in finding their perfect car by buying a used one and for a lot less money, so it is no wonder there is an increase in demand for second hand cars.
