A New Vehicle

A few years ago, my parents built a farmhouse in the country. Their new home was located on a dirt road. Regardless of the season, this road was usually hard to drive on. During periods of heavy rain at my parents’ home, the roads became extremely muddy. During times of draught at this location, the road got large potholes in it. Because of the treacherous driving conditions at their new place, my parents decided to purchase a new vehicle. They traded their midsize sedan for a large truck. On this blog, you will discover the best types of vehicles to drive on dirt roads. Enjoy!

Three Benefits Of Buying A Used Vehicle

Unless you live in Manhattan, there's a good chance you require a vehicle to get to and from work, go to the grocery store, and live your life. Unfortunately, like everything else, new vehicles are getting more and more expensive, making them cost-prohibitive for many people. Fortunately, quality pre-owned vehicles are available at a price most people can afford. Here is a look at three benefits of buying a used car.

Buying Used Is The Green Way To Go

Just because someone doesn't want their old vehicle anymore doesn't mean it has no value. Many used cars have a lot of life left in them, especially if it is a make known for their quality and longevity, such as a Subaru. By purchasing a used Subaru for sale, you are keeping it from going off to the junkyard to die. In a society that is driven by mass consumerism, choosing a used car is the environmentally friendly, sustainable way to go.

You'll Save Money

Even if you can afford to purchase a brand-new vehicle, you'd be wise not to. A new vehicle will lose value — about 10 percent— the moment you drive it off the lot. In the first year of ownership, it will lose another 20 percent. That's a lot of wasted money just to have that new car smell!

Another way you may save money is on financing and fees. A less expensive used car means you won't need as large a loan. Depending on your finances, you may even be able to pay cash. This can amount to substantial interest savings, and if you pay cash, you won't even need to have full coverage insurance. Purchasing a vehicle that is at least a year or two old makes more fiscal sense.

A Used Car Can Be Just As Good As A New Car

Many car dealerships offer pre-certified used vehicles. When a car dealership offers cars that are said to be "certified pre-owned" vehicles, you can rest assured you aren't buying a clunker. For example, Subaru has an excellent certified pre-owned vehicle program. A Subaru car dealership will take a trade on any of their vehicles that are less than five years old or have 80,000 miles or less. They will then conduct a massive inspection, looking at over 150 different areas. Anything that needs to be repaired or replaced will be. The car will also usually be cleaned and detailed, so it looks like-new again. In addition to a roadside assistance program, you may be able to opt for additional warranty coverage as well.
