Top Reasons to Buy Used Vehicles for Sale in Webster

1. Avoid the massive hit of depreciation that occurs with new cars.

You've heard that cars depreciate as soon as you drive them off the lot, and this is true. According to Nerd Wallet, cars depreciate 20% to 30% by the end of the first year. The depreciation continues from years two through five at an average of 15% to 18%. New cars depreciate the greatest the first year, but if you buy a used car at Auto Outlets USA, you avoid the huge depreciation hit. You should always save money out of pocket when buying used than buying new; however, buying a used car that is at least three years old could save up to half of the car's original price. 

All vehicles depreciate over time, but the timeline of depreciation isn't a straight line. Work with our team at Auto Outlets to find used cars for sale in Webster that have depreciated significantly but still have plenty of miles left in them. Whether you purchase a car that's just a year old or one that's five or more years old, you can get a great deal by buying a used car that still has plenty of life left in it.

2. Circumvent recalls and safety issues that arise with new models.

The U.S. government has overseen car recalls since 1966. That is when the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act became law. That law is now regulated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which falls under the U.S. Department of Transportation. If automakers don't identify and report safety recalls they find, this agency can find them. Car manufacturers typically identify issues during the manufacturing process or after receiving warranty claims, which is why issues are frequently uncovered within the first couple of years a car is manufactured. Therefore, with at least a two-year-old model, the odds are lower than you will be surprised with a major recall or safety problem. 

3. Buy the car you've always wanted at a price point you can afford.

New cars depreciate steeply in their first year and continue to decline in years two through five. Maybe you've dreamed of owning a Land Rover, but you can't afford a $75,000 price tag. If you go with the Sport model and wait five years, the price drops to around $40,000. You'll want to ensure that the miles align with the vehicle's age, and there have not been any major accidents, but if the car is well-maintained, you get a much greater value and vehicle for your money. When you buy used vehicles for sale in Webster, you can buy the car of your dreams at a price you can afford.

They don't make cars like they used to, and in this case, that's good news. Many modern vehicles are exceeding 100,000 miles and pushing toward 200,000 with minimal maintenance issues. There are, of course, still some concerns with a high-mileage vehicle. Purchasing a car that's nearing 100,000 miles is no longer the same risk that it used to be. As long as you purchase one of our reliable used vehicles for sale in Webster that's been carefully inspected and vetted by our talented team, you can be confident that you'll still have plenty of years with your used vehicle.

4. Be confident that your car is reliable after passing our safety inspection and incident history investigation.

Some new vehicles come with maintenance issues. Even the most demanding manufacturing specifications can still miss some imperfections in new cars. While these issues may be covered by a warranty, dealing with them can be stressful and irritating. A used vehicle has already logged enough miles to ensure it doesn't have any of those issues. Choose a used vehicle from a reputable dealer and enjoy a thorough incident history investigation and safety inspection.

At Auto Outlets used cars in Webster, we inspect every vehicle before adding them to our inventory. We search for undisclosed accident history and put the vehicle through a rigorous safety inspection. When you buy a used car from Auto Outlets, you can feel confident that it has been thoroughly inspected and is road-ready. 

5. Enjoy lower insurance costs than those of a new car. 

Sometimes people focus more on the monthly car payment than their insurance rates. You may take a step up to a more expensive vehicle, but the only factor in your insurance payment on a cheaper, compact car, which could negatively impact your budget and monthly cash flow. Whatever vehicle you buy, you should first contact your insurance agent to prepare for the monthly cost of insurance and factor that into your budget. Though, a used car with a lower price point will always yield a lower monthly insurance payment than a new car at a higher price point. 

6. Save money at the license branch on your registration. 

As insurance, the cost of vehicle registration is partially a result of the sales tax, which is contingent upon the vehicle's price. Using the previous example of the Land Rover, a $75,000 vehicle generates more dollars in sales tax owed than a five-year-old, $40,000 vehicle. Other factors that impact vehicle registration are registration fee, vehicle plate tax, county rate tax, and title certificate fee. Check your local license branch for more information about taxes and fees for registering a new or used vehicle. Compare the rates for yourself to see how you can save by purchasing a vehicle that's one or more years old. 

7. Join a community of used car owners.

Even a vehicle that's only three years old may already have a large following. Join a growing community of fellow owners of your make and model of vehicle. There are a few benefits to owning a popular, older vehicle. First, you'll enjoy a wider range of aftermarket parts and accessories. Manufacturers have had more time to create helpful accessories and affordable aftermarket parts for your used car compared to a brand-new model.

Second, your used car community has created more how-to videos and other helpful information about your car. Whether you're a DIY enthusiast or curious about how to change your own headlight bulb, you'll typically find more information about a used make and model of a car.

8. Take advantage of a greater selection of vehicles than the new models unveiled every year.

While there is an average of 350 new vehicles available every year in the United States, this may seem like a large amount, but there are far more models of used cars available. Compare the sheer variety of vehicle types and price points available in used vehicles to see how you can enjoy the car you'll love at the price you want.

Some types of vehicles that are no longer popular are no longer being produced. If you fell in love with a particular hatchback, sports car, subcompact car, or large truck, you may not be able to find the same type of vehicle in this year's model. You don't have to leave behind your favorite type of vehicle just because others have moved on, but cherish an iconic and functional make and model of used car.

A $20,000 budget for a brand new car yields far fewer results than the same budget for 2015, especially when you open yourself to different makes and models. If you like options, buying used provides variety.
