New vs. Used: Which Option is Best for You?
When you decide to shop for your next car, you get to decide if you want to buy a new car or a used car. There are benefits to both choices, depending on your personal lifestyle, budget, and overall preferences.

New vs. Used
Price is the biggest difference between buying a new car and a used car. Used cars are significantly less expensive than new cars. The moment you drive a new car off the lot, it loses a large percentage of its value. With a used car, not only can you buy it for a lower price, but you won’t lose as much money if you sell the car later on.
Many people think that if you buy a used car, you’re getting outdated features. This can sometimes be the case, but many used cars are within just a few model years. While they might not have the newest features on the market, they won’t be completely out of date. And, since used cars are less expensive, you might be able to afford a higher trim than you would if you bought a new car, getting you even more features for your money.
You can’t customize a used car. Of course, you can add aftermarket features, but if the dealership doesn’t have the color or trim you want, you may have to settle. When you buy a new car, you can order it in any color, trim, or style you want.
