Reasons To Buy New vs Used

Depending on your automotive goals and priorities, buying a new or a used car may be a better fit for you. One way to decide is by learning about the benefits of each option and deciding which one lines up with your current wants and needs.

When Should I Buy a New Car?

Since a new car has never had a previous owner and doesn't have any miles built up on it yet, you can rest assured it's in prime working condition. For some people, this is a top priority. Along with that, you can expect:

  • Latest automotive technology
  • Warranty coverage usually included
  • Most up-to-date safety and driver-assistance features

Additionally, when you buy a new car, you can choose your ideal trim level and customize it with additional features or packages to suit your lifestyle. If you want to dive into the details of a specific new model year, you can read our in-depth car reviews to find out more about its performance, interior, technology, safety, trims, and more.

When Should I Buy a Used Car?

A used car has already had one or more owners, so you'll want to learn about how it was cared for and maintained before you decide to buy. Luckily, there are lots of ways to obtain a vehicle history report, which makes it easy to make an informed decision before you take the wheel.

When shopping for a used car, you can find what you're looking for by using our search bar to specify your preferred year, make, body style, and much more. In addition to traditional used cars, you can explore certified pre-owned (CPO) options. These models must pass a rigorous certification process to ensure they meet certain standards.

Our CPO inventory has undergone a 125-point inspection and comes with a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™, so you'll know all about the pre-owned vehicle you're buying. Along with that, CPO models come with special perks:

  • Maximum Care Warranty
  • Powertrain Limited Warranty
  • Lifetime Certified Upgrade Plans
  • Roadside coverage services & car rental allowance

Thanks to these perks, you can buy a certified pre-owned vehicle with more confidence and greater peace of mind.
