  • New vehicles come with a warranty, meaning you won't have to worry about paying for any major repairs outside of routine maintenance
  • When buying new, many models come with special incentives and offers to make your purchase more affordable

Disadvantages of Buying New

  • New vehicles are much more expensive than comparable used models
  • A new vehicle depreciates in value much more rapidly than used vehicles
  • You will have to pay more for tax, title, and license fees when buying new

Advantages of Buying Used

  • Your tax, title, and license fees will be significantly less expensive
  • With some research, you will be able to determine reliability fairly easily
  • Some models are eligible to be Certified Pre-Owned, meaning they are held to higher standards and come with a warranty

Disadvantages of Buying Used
