There are two ways in which you can buy a car: either brand new or used from a dealer or the owner.
As already said before, a new car in mint condition has no substitutes, for the sheer joy that you will get by owning it. But then people are also buying used cars quite a lot these days. If you think that buying a car means getting a new one, perhaps you have no idea why buying a used car can be a wise decision for a more than one reason. Keep reading and find answers to why you should buy a used car.
There is a preconceived notion among many people in India that used cars are faulty damaged vehicles behind sold off those who can’t afford new ones. But you should know that a used car is a safe buy these days and you can good value from your purchase.
Here are the top reasons why buying a used car is often better than buying a new one:
- If you have a car of your dreams, but cannot afford it, why not go for a previously owned version of the same. This way you can actually own your dream car without having to take huge loans or feeling bad about not being able to afford it. You can save thousands to millions of rupees on buying a used car, depending on the brand and model you are seeking.
- Monetary savings apart, a used car gives you added flexibility too. Say you have to buy two cars for your family. In that case, going for used cars may be the only option you have in order to limit the amount of money you will need to spend.
- A used car is often the best car for your son or daughter or any other non-frequent driver in your family. For young people who have just obtained their driving license, a used car is as good as a brand new one. They are usually delighted with just the fact that they have a car of their own. Similarly, if the car is not going to be driven much, a used car is a good option. Say, if it’s your family’s second or third car (a backup vehicle), buying a previously owned car will be better value for money.
Other than these reasons, if you are in the habit of changing cars frequently, used cars are your best bets.
