You may dream of owning a new car because it gets you the latest technology, superior fuel efficiency, and the trendiest appearance. At Glockner of Ironton, OH, we carry a large inventory of our brands' latest models. But we also have an excellent selection of pre-owned vehicles. And we'd like to tell you the reasons you should consider buying a used car.

Lower Cost

The top advantage of buying a used car is a lower price. Depending on how old the vehicle is, you may end up spending 50 percent or less than the price of the newer model. This could allow you to buy a more expensive vehicle, a higher trim level, or a model with more options.

A lower price translates to less sales tax, lower registration fees, a smaller amount for not alone, lower monthly payments, and a lower total expense when you pay off the loan. The lower value of your vehicle also means a lower replacement and repair cost, which reduces your insurance payments.

Avoiding Fees

When you buy a new car from us or any other dealer, you're hit with several fees beyond the manufacturer's suggested retail price. They include destination fees, shipping charges, and dealer prep. All these costs disappear when you go for a used vehicle because they have already been absorbed by the previous owner. The money would have spent on all these fees can now be used to get you a better car.

May Still Be Under Warranty

New cars ordinarily come with warranties that will take care of repairs to covered components within the warranty period. If the pre-owned car that you buy is from a relatively recent model year, that car may still be under the manufacturer's warranty.

For example, the bumper-to-bumper limited warranty for a Buick lasts for three years or 36,000 miles. The brand also offers an extended limited warranty for four years or 50,000 miles. The powertrain warranty goes for six years or 70,000 miles and includes 24.7 Roadside Assistance and courtesy transportation. . If the pre-owned Buick is younger than these warranty periods, you can take advantage of the factory coverage.

Avoid Depreciation

A new car depreciates as soon as you drive it off our lot. In the first year alone, that vehicle can lose up to 30 percent of its value with more depreciation every year. If you do not compensate for this depreciation with a suitable down payment, your loan may provide you with negative equity. You'll owe more in financing than the car is worth. You'll find it impossible to sell the vehicle until the loan is retired because the money you make can't pay off what you owe on the loan.

If you buy a used car that is at least a year old, you avoid these depreciation issues because the previous owner has already taken the hit in the loss of value. You won't have to worry about your vehicle being worth less than its financing.

Certified Pre-Owned Advantage

If you're concerned about the reliability of a used vehicle or want to buy one that is out of its factory warranty, you can limit your choices to those that are Certified Pre-Owned. This means that the vehicle has undergone a 172-point vehicle inspection and has been reconditioned. It benefits from the following features:

·         Vehicle History Report that reveals the service history and previous ownership records.

·         Bumper-to-bumper limited warranty for 12 months and 12,000 miles.

·         Extended powertrain limited warranty that lasts for six years or 100,000 miles. Like the standard powertrain warranty, this one also includes Roadside Assistance and Courtesy Transportation.

·         Two scheduled maintenance visits within two years or 24,000 miles.

·         A three-month trial of OnStar Safety and Security Plan and Connected Services.

·         A three-month trial of the SiriusXM All-Access Package, which comes with satellite radio programming like commercial-free music, live pro-sports, and exclusive celebrity talk.

·         Vehicle Exchange Program that lets you exchange your Certified Pre-Owned vehicle for something else within the first three days or 150 miles.
