E-Z Way Auto offers a wide range of used vehicles for test drive and purchase. While many first-time car buyers go the used route, used cars make for viable transportation for drivers of any age and financial situation. Here are some frequently asked questions about used cars.
The price of a used car depends on a number of factors, including make (luxury automakers will be more expensive), model, condition, mileage, and age. However, used cars are incredibly more affordable than new cars. When you purchase a new car, you lose anywhere from 10- 20% of its value the moment you drive it off the lot. When you purchase a used car, you don’t take that hit on depreciation and thus are making a better investment. Not only will your down payment be cheaper, but so will your monthly payments.
Insurance is typically cheaper for used cars as well, since they are not as expensive to replace and are less likely to be stolen. Speak with your insurance agent before making a purchase.
Gone are the years when you would have to be overly cautious when buying a used car. Because safety technology has become so advanced in the last several decades, even cars older than 10 years have innovative safety features.
Further, we inspect all cars on our lot to make sure they are safe for driving. For your confidence, however, we encourage you to drive any car you are interested in to your trusted mechanic for a professional opinion. You can also order up a vehicle history report to learn more about previous owners, maintenance history, accident history, and more.
Private sellers are a viable option; however, a dealership like E-Z Way Auto has a reputation to maintain in the community and online. Private sellers, on the other hand, could knowingly sell you a bad used car.
