What're Your Options When Buying a Car? 

You’re in the market to purchase a vehicle, but can’t decide whether you should go the new or used car buying route. Let’s weigh the options, shall we?


Advantages of Buying a New Car

  • Comes with a manufacturer’s warranty
  • No previous owners
  • Comes with the latest, up-to-date technology (i.e. Bluetooth, energy efficient, etc.)


Advantages of Buying a Used Car

  • Less expensive
  • Slower depreciation (depending on make and model)
  • Lower tax and insurance costs
  • May come with up-to-date technology (depending on model year)


Although there are advantages to buying either a new or used car, it really comes down to what makes the most sense for you financially. It may be wise to evaluate your finances and determine a budget that aligns with your car buying needs.

It’s also important for you to know your vehicle financing options.
