The Advantages of Buying a Used Vehicle From Driver's Choice

If you are looking into purchasing a vehicle, one of the most basic questions is "should I buy new or used", and there are valid arguments to be made on both sides.  For our purposes here, we are going to focus on the advantages of buying a used vehicle.

The biggest reason to buy a used vehicle is to minimize depreciation.

The most basic benefit to buying a used vehicle is simple- it costs less to buy (almost always much less) than a comparable new vehicle.  The reason for this is straightforward- the majority of a car's depreciation occurs during the first two years.  According to, a vehicle loses 11% in value, as soon as it is sold.  Further, it will typically lose 36% over the first two years.  For example, if you buy a new car for $30,000, it will be, on average, worth less than $20,000 after two years of normal use. 

So, if you buy a two or three year old car, you are getting the benefit of it still being a late-model car, with the latest technologies and features, but without taking the biggest depreciation hit.
