At some point in time, nearly everyone will purchase a vehicle. When they do, they find that there are millions of options. Last year, more than 54 million automobiles were sold.

Studies show automobiles that are purchased new are driven for about seven years, on average. Those purchased used Five Reasons to Buy a Vehicle At a Car Dealership Chevrolet Silverado LTZ Osseo WI 54758 are driven for about five years. Using the average depreciation rates for automobiles today, a vehicle would be worth approximately 20% of its original value after seven years. By shopping with a used car dealer, customers avoid the massive depreciation that all undriven models suffer from. A pre-owned auto will depreciate as well, but not to the same extent.

The average cost for an undriven automobile is roughly $32,000, compared with $15,000 Chevrolet Silverado LTZ Osseo WI 54758 for a pre-owned model. Much of the difference in cost, as discussed above, is due to depreciation. The instant an undriven vehicle leaves the company’s lot, it loses almost 10% of its value, simply because it is no longer considered mint. If one vehicle costs 10% less than another, and the only difference is a few miles on the odometer, the cheaper option will always win.

Similar Reliability

The old adage is that you should never repair a damaged vehicle Chevrolet Silverado LTZ Osseo WI 54758 if the cost is more than half of the auto’s value. So, when a costly repair came around, people would buy a fresh model. However, with the increase in competition between domestic and foreign markets in the 80s and 90s, all models have become more reliable. Since 1995, when studies began, the average age of cars on the road has steadily increased. Today, of the 250 million cars in the U.S., the Chevrolet Silverado LTZ Osseo WI 54758 average age is 11.7 years. Consumers expect automobiles to last, and they purchase them for their reliability. As a result, there is a plethora of reliable, quality models available from any used car dealer.

In conclusion, the choice between new and pre-owned vehicles is an easy one. An auto from a used car dealer will give you the same level of reliability and safety as new cars. Pre-owned vehicles, on average, cost less Chevrolet Silverado LTZ Osseo WI 54758 than half the price of new ones and depreciate significantly less. If you are interested in getting the same features as a new auto, but for less money, then the pre-owned market is for you.
