Interestingly, buying new can actually be more cost effective thanks to the benefits associated with this type of purchase. Here are just a few of the real life benefits you’ll receive when buying new.
This is undeniably one of the best things about buying a brand new car, you get the entire manufacturer’s warranty. This means that for three years – or five years in the case of Mitsubishi, Subaru and Great Wall – you will have absolutely nothing to pay if things start to go wrong with your car. While you may be able to have extended warranties on used cars, there may still be excess to pay and they tend to run out after a year or 10,000 miles.
Unlike a used car, this eliminates a certain amount of risk associated with this purchase. Not only is that good for eliminating any sort of worry that you may have spending thousands on a car, but it means you won’t have to worry about the car breaking down on you.
One of the biggest issues with used cars is that you don’t know what the driving history is. Sure, you get MOT and service records, but you don’t know how the car was driven previously. It could have been torn around and poorly driven, which means that you may end up having to replace key components well before their time. The beauty of a new car, on the other hand, is that you’re the first person to get behind the wheel. You know exactly where it’s been and how it has been driven, this means that you can do your best to keep the vehicle in pristine condition by driving sensibly.
BETTER FINANCE DEAL
Dealership finance on new cars is traditionally very enticing, meaning that you could theoretically buy a new car for cheaper than a used one. Many places offer a 0% interest rate for the initial period, helping you to pay off the car faster than some bank loans allow. In addition to this, the low interest rate means that the overall price you pay for the car is also less than it would be with most used car finance options – sometimes making the purchase of a nearly new car more expensive than a brand new counterpart.
HOW YOU LIKE IT
While this may not be a huge benefit for some people, being able to choose your car exactly the way you want it is a pretty big deal. After all, if you’re spending all that money on a car you want it to at least be a colour you like don’t you? New cars give you the options of colours, added extras such as whether or not you want heated seats or automatic wing mirrors – all these are things you can tweak and tune to your heart’s content.
This isn’t just about visual aesthetics though, you’re also able to choose the engine type, running gear and latest in technological advancements. Doing this means that you can have a good understanding of what the running costs of the vehicle will be, what kind of power output to expect and ensure you get the exact model you want.
