Benefits of Buying a Used Car vs. New Car 

Shopping for a vehicle can be a difficult and time-consuming task, especially if you don’t know your way around the auto industry. If you’re looking for a vehicle and want to save money on the make and model you want to drive, buying used or pre-owned can be a game-changer. Below, you’ll find the top three benefits of buying a used car, SUV of crossover when shopping at US Auto Sales

Three Reasons Why You Should Buy a Used Car vs. a New Car 

1. Larger selection. You’ll find that dealership lots are filled with used vehicles. Not all drivers can afford to buy a new car, which is why you’ll see more used models for sale compared to new ones. If you’re looking for a specific make and model, you’ll find that you have many more vehicles to choose from when shopping for a used car, crossover or SUV. At U.S. Auto Sales, we have an inventory of better than 1,600 vehicles. 
2. Get your vehicle now. Because of current new car market shortage, most dealers encourage consumers to order vehicles. That can take up to six to eight weeks. With a used car, you don’t have to worry about ordering it, thus getting in the vehicle will be more efficient.  
3. Less depreciation. Vehicle depreciation is unavoidable, but can be more manageable when buying a used car as opposed to buying new. In fact, a new vehicle can often depreciate at a rate as high as 20% within the first year of ownership. However, a used car that’s at least a year old has already been hit by that initial depreciation which can save you money while still giving you a vehicle that’s in like-new condition.
