If you’re practical enough, you can settle for a used car and enjoy the lower price. Comparing apples to apples, a used car is going to be cheaper. The relative benefit of the used-car price can also allow a buyer to step up to a nicer model, with no depreciation hit the second you roll off the lot. There’s also less mental depreciation. Nodding a used car dealership means you will never need to worry about the first parking-lot ding or rock chip in the paint because chances are the car’s previous owner or owners took care of those things for you.
Like financing, insurance rates will be affected by the age of a car, but in this case the used car may be less expensive, so another practical note on that. Though you apparently can’t build a used car to order, maybe you want a model, option package, or even wheel design that’s no longer made. The great thing about choosing a used vehicle is that you can enjoy a more comprehensive selection. Satisfaction comes easy with a great deal. An excellent used car dealer provides a CarFax so you can just bring your mechanic, take a test drive, and drive home in your new vehicle.
