Nothing like that new car smell…am I right?
Yet, most arguments for buying new vs. used end with used winning out, citing things like “new cars lose value as soon as they’re driven off the lot” and “used cars are just as good, except cheaper.”
And yes, while buying a gently used certified pre-owned car might be a better option depending on your situation, there are also quite a few reasons why buying a new vehicle is worth considering — starting with these three:
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is constantly testing vehicles and updating standards for car companies to meet. Buying a new car, direct from the factory, ensures that your vehicle has the latest safety features available.
The gamble with buying a used car (especially if it’s not a certified pre-owned vehicle) is that you don’t always know the full history and true condition of the vehicle. The last thing you want is to end up stuck with a lemon! There’s something said about being the first and only owner of a new car.
The technology world moves fast. A car that’s only a few years old may not have a fraction of the features and internet connectivity available with the latest models.
