New or Used Car? | Main Differences

Generally speaking, there are a great deal of benefits to be enjoyed when purchasing either a new or used car – but the benefits of each can differ quite a bit. Read below for our list of new and used car advantages and disadvantages, and how they might apply to you and your growing Fort Walton Beach family.

New Car Advantages

  • Buying or leasing a new car, truck, or SUV means you’re getting access to the latest technology – both under the hood and in the cabin.
  • Newer vehicles will almost always have better fuel economy ratings than their older counterparts.
  • Most new vehicles come protected by bumper-to-bumper and powertrain warranties that cover many of the vehicle’s most important components.

New Car Disadvantage

  • Put simply, new cars are typically more expensive – just like anything else brand new!

Used Car Advantages

  • Generally speaking, buying a used car is far more cost effective, assuming that you’re working with a reputable dealership like Sandy Sansing Chevrolet, Inc. with good used cars for sale.
  • A new car loses a ton of value the moment it leaves the lot in your ownership – a used car on the other hand depreciates in value more slowly.

Used Car Disadvantage

  • One negative of buying a used car, or financing one rather, is that lending institutions from Fort Walton Beach and beyond often charge higher interest rates for used vehicles vs. new ones.
