Satisfaction For Your Senses, Relief For Your Wallet

One of the most daunting aspects of buying a new car is the immediate and massive drop in its worth. From the moment your new car leaves the dealership’s showroom it can depreciate up to 11% or more. Meaning that in the time it took to drive your new investment home, that $20,000 car becomes worth $17,800 or less. With used and Certified Pre-Owned vehicles, the bulk of that depreciation has already occurred. This depreciation is reflected in the price and translates directly into savings for you.

Some vehicles, such as muscle cars or limited editions, can gain value once time passes and they enter the ‘used’ market. Used and Certified Pre-Owned vehicles also strip away the unnecessary and often exorbitant fees many dealerships love to slap on top of the vehicle’s MSRP. Other benefits include less expensive customization costs, lower insurance premiums, lower annual registration fees and more.

Certifiably Excellent

If the prospect of buying a used car seems too risky for you, then Certified Pre-Owned vehicles represent the best of both worlds; providing nearly new automotive experiences alongside sumptuous savings. The distinction between the 2 may not seem too drastic at first glance, but the difference is quite substantial. Certified Pre-Owned vehicles are often lightly used and are always thoroughly inspected. Its time spent in-use and subsequent inspection also weeds-out any lemons and makes certain the vehicle is in tip-top shape.

Not only do Certified Pre-Owned vehicles ensure you’re receiving a high-quality automobile for a fraction of the cost you would pay for the same model ‘new’, but they also usually come with a plethora of perks such as an extended warranty, special financing and more.
