A new car definitely has its attractions, the smell of the newly crafted leather interior and the fact that the vehicle has never been used, but this does come at a very high cost, and when you consider that approximately 13% of its value is wiped out when you drive it out of the dealership, buying a Used Vehicles in Winnipeg is a much more attractive proposition.
- Trusted Dealer
There is a large element of trust when buying a used car, which is why a private sale should be avoided, as most are sold as seen, which means you have no warranty should something go wrong. If you scour the Internet, you are bound to come across some reputable used car showrooms, and if they are established in the area, they will have a solid reputation. Most second hand car dealers also service vehicles, and if you happen to live in Sussex and need your car looked at, there are excellent garage services available in Eastbourne where you can be sure of great service.
- Value for Money
The money you lose on a new car in the first 3months in a lot more than 10% of the car’s value, and very year that goes by, the value drops accordingly. This means that a car that is one year old and in good condition will offer the motorist a reliable drive, but at a fraction of the cost of a new model. Many motorists are clever when it comes to buying and selling cars, and with careful selection, they can have pretty cheap motoring, and by changing their car every year or so, they will never be stuck with the same car for very long.
- Full Service History
If a car has a full service history (FSH), you can be absolutely sure it has been serviced according to the manufacturer’s specifications, and this means the vehicle will be reliable. Of course, you should continue to have the vehicle serviced by an approved garage, as the FSH will enable you to ask for top price when you do eventually resell. A car with a full service history is a far more attractive buy that something with no history at all, and if you buy the car from the same garage that services it, this is even better.
- Better Resale Value
You won’t lose nearly as much money when you sell a used car, and if you paid a fair price for the vehicle and maintained it well, you should receive a good trade in when it is time to replace it. When you weigh up the advantages and disadvantages, a new car has little going for it, with the exception of everything being brand new, and when you consider how much money you lose as soon as you drive it away, it makes more sense to buy second hand.
There are very reliable used car suppliers, and by dealing with someone local, you can be sure that the car is well looked after and will give you a few years of trouble-free motoring.
