Let’s Discuss: Buying New or Used Cars


Buying New vs Used

At Spitzer Volkswagen, we want happy car buyers who are satisfied with their brand new car, Certified Pre-Owned vehicle, or pre-owned vehicle. That’s why we want to keep you informed on the advantages of buying both new and used vehicles.

Stop in and talk to one of our knowledgeable salespeople who can inform you about the pros and cons of both decisions, and offer you ways to save money whether you prefer a new or used Volkswagen or other vehicles.

The Advantages of Buying New

When you buy or lease a new vehicle, you will be its first owner, and won’t have to worry about wear and tear, poor maintenance, or accidents incurred by a previous owner. Other than a test drive or two, the miles on the speedometer will be yours and yours alone.

Believe it or not, you can also save money on new vehicles by taking advantage of special incentives by automakers to sell slower-moving or soon-to-be-replaced models. New cars are also cheaper to finance since lenders have a known value for their collateral (your new car) to work with. This decreased risk can mean lower interest rates on new car loans.

Another advantage to buying new is that you can enjoy the latest technology, connectivity, performance, and safety features—like Blind Spot Monitoring—offered on new model cars, trucks, and SUVs. Newer cars are often more fuel-efficient as well since advances in engineering and materials keep getting better.

The Advantages of Buying Used

Used and Certified Pre-Owned cars have lower sticker prices than new cars, but that’s not the only way buying used can save you money. You’ll also pay lower car insurance costs, since your car is worthless, and the taxes on your used vehicle will be lower as well.

A smaller price tag allows you to take out a smaller loan with lower monthly payments. This means you might have the means to pay it off quicker and avoid continued high-interest rates for an extended period of time.

Since used vehicles cost less than new vehicles, your car budget can afford you a lot more for your money. Instead of getting the lower-priced base trim of a new model vehicle, buying an older model allows you to afford a higher trim level with more tech, safety, and performance features than you could get otherwise.
