• Many high-cost options are included at a fraction of their original cost and often at no additional cost at all. Therefore, if a potential vehicle buyer wants some or many of the high-cost options, such as heated and cooled seats, a navigation system, radar cruise control or a backup camera, purchasing a used vehicle can be a wise decision.
• The selection is almost as good as, and often better than, purchasing a new vehicle. While this does not seem accurate, Automotive News stated that 95 percent of new vehicle purchases are made from the selection on the dealer's lot. While purchasing used does not allow the buyer to select the exact vehicles and color wanted, often the selection is very good.
• Most people cannot tell what model year a vehicle is so if it is clean and well maintained, no one will know that it was purchased used.
For some of us, purchasing a used vehicle can be a wise choice.
