If you have ever experienced the pleasure of driving a brand-new car, it can be something that is hard to pass up. However, there are a lot of benefits to choosing a used car worth considering.
The best reason to choose a used car is simply the fact that they can cost thousands of dollars less than their new counterparts. Within three years, many new cars lose up to 50 percent of their original value through depreciation.
With the less expensive price, a used car can give you more wiggle room in your budget. You may be able to afford a high-end trim level with more premium amenities and advanced technology than you could get with the same budget for a new car.
If you like the savings you get with a used car, but want more assurance of its condition, consider a Certified Pre-Owned Nissan from Galesburg Nissan. Our Nissan CPO vehicles have less than 80,000 miles on the odometer, are backed by a seven-year/100,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty, and must pass a 167-point inspection.
While new cars are limited to just one or two model years, used cars come in a nearly endless variety of practically every make, model, and year you could want. This is helpful if you want a model or feature that is no longer in production.
When your parents or grandparents were younger, it wasn’t uncommon for a car to practically rust through within a decade. Now, cars are more dependable and last longer than ever. Automakers have taken big strides recently to prevent rust and other previously common mechanical and build issues, meaning many newer vehicles last well into the 200,000-mile range.
Many of the used cars sold at Galesburg Nissan come with a complete vehicle history report. This report will show you how many owners it has had, whether it has been in any accidents, and other important information.
Another reason to purchase a used car at Galesburg Nissan: our Pro Certified Lifetime Warranty. If you’re interested in learning more about our used-vehicle warranty or about the many great used and CPO vehicles we have in stock, stop into Galesburg Nissan.
