Is it better to buy or lease a new car?
Buying vs leasing a new vehicle depends on the person and his or her specific needs. If you want to drive a brand new car every year or two, leasing is the better option. If you're looking for the best overall value and lower long-term costs, then you're better off buying rather than leasing.
How Should I Prepare For Buying A Used Car?
Even if you buy from a dealer, it’s good practice to walk around the vehicle and give it a brief but detailed inspection before test-driving. Furthermore, you should have an idea of a particular make and model’s value before negotiating.
Why should I buy from a car dealership instead of a private seller?
A third-party seller is not a business. There is no way to check their reputation or integrity before making the transaction. In addition, they might be selling you a vehicle that has many invisible problems that you won’t be able to detect before you drive off in your new set of wheels. A dealership that sells used cars often has their vehicles inspected before putting them back on the lot and is bound by customer reviews and word-of-mouth.
What's the difference between a used car and a CPO vehicle?
All CPO vehicles are used, but not all used cars are CPO. CPO stands for “certified pre-owned.” Many dealerships affiliated with a certain brand will subject a used vehicle to a rigorous maintenance and inspection checklist before putting them back on the market with a factory-backed stamp of approval and, oftentimes, a warranty and roadside assistance. However, they’re often more expensive than typical used cars.
What are the benefits of buying a used car?
Used vehicles don’t need as many repairs as they used to. These days, cars are engineered to last longer than they once were. As a result, many used cars are more dependable than you’d think. You can also get a fairly new used car that’s only two- or three years old with many modern amenities at a fraction of the cost of buying new.
