Why Used Cars in St. Louis are Better than New

March 21, 2016  

While a vehicle’s “new car smell” has definite appeal, why pay thousands extra just for a fleeting scent that lasts a few weeks at best? Choose from the thousands of used cars in St. Louis and get more for your buck.

Used Cars in St Louis

The cost of new car depreciation is staggering. Consider that a new vehicle depreciates, or loses its original value, from 20-30% within the first two years after purchase. In addition, premium options such as heated seats, back-up cameras, state-of-the-art audio systems, etc., are available in previously-owned autos at a fraction of the cost of new. You can get more for your money and still acquire the extras that appeal most to you.

Auto manufacturers are creating vehicles of better quality than ever before. Therefore, autos and their individual components last longer, as well. For additional reassurance, many car dealers offer extended warranties with your car purchase. To promote the benefits of buying used rather than new, many dealers are pleased to provide auto financing with any credit history, whether good, bad or average.
