New vs. Used Vehicles

Before you head out to a dealership for a new vehicle, you should have two things in mind other than the type of vehicle you want: Buying new or used, and if new, leasing or purchasing. While you may start out looking at used vehicles at Richmond Ford, you may change your mind and choose a new vehicle. Likewise with leasing vs. purchasing – you might think you want to purchase, but you can always change your mind.

Benefits of Buying a New Vehicle

When you buy a new vehicle, you have the most up to date technology and you get to have that new car smell! You also have the manufacturer’s warranty should anything go bad. You can also choose from various trim levels to get what you want for features, and you can add additional options if you choose. You also get to choose which color you want – for the interior and exterior.

Cons of Buying a New Vehicle

Most of the downsides of buying new are pretty obvious, but they include the cost of the vehicle and the cost of insurance. You may be able to afford something new, though it’s not what you really want. When you add the cost of insurance on certain models, that could put the new vehicle out of reach. You have two options – you can look at the cost of leasing, which is not for everyone, or you can buy used.

Benefits of Buying a Used Vehicle

The biggest benefit of buying a used vehicle is that the cost is much lower. You may even find something newer with low miles on it so that you can have many of the newer technologies. Furthermore, when you buy used, the insurance cost is usually lower, and is definitely lower if you can pay cash for a used vehicle. You can also afford the vehicle you want if the price was out of reach on a brand new model.

Cons of Buying a Used Vehicle

The biggest downside to buying a used vehicle is that you most likely don’t have a warranty. However, when you buy a used vehicle from Richmond Ford, you can rest assured that we check out every vehicle on our used car lot. If it needs repairs before we put it on the lot, those repairs are done. You can buy an extended warranty to cover anything that might happen. Extended warranties vary in what they will cover and their length of coverage.

Stop by Richmond Ford today to test drive your next new or used vehicle. While you may have one type in mind, you might surprise yourself with the opposite!
