Why to Buy Used in Fort Wayne, IN

December 9th, 2017 by

Buying a used car can sometimes have a stigma that it does not deserve. Here at Glenbrook Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM and FIAT, near Indianapolis, IN, we would like to let you know the pros and cons of buying both new and used vehicles from your Fort Wayne Jeep dealers.

It cannot be said that buying a new car doesn’t have advantages. Firstly, you can have it made to order with the color, trim, and features that your heart desires, and all the most recent technologies are available to you. There’s also the confidence that comes with knowing that you are the first and sole owner of a great car.

This should not, however, lead you to think that buying a used car doesn’t also have some pretty serious advantages. First and foremost, the reason most people consider buying used is the price. It is common knowledge that used vehicles are going to be less expensive than new ones. What is less commonly known, though, is that the value carries into the price of insurance as well. Not only that, but used cars don’t depreciate nearly as much or as fast as used cars do. That means if you want to trade it in, you’re probably going to get back much more of what you spent than you would had you bought the car new.

There’s another extremely practical benefit to buying used that is often overlooked: choices. The 2018 Jeep Compass looks vastly different than the 2010 Jeep Compass. However, if you happen to prefer the 2010 model, you’ll likely only find it used. There are years and years of past and discontinued models you have to choose from when you buy used from Glenbrook Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM and FIAT. Whichever you choose, if it’s right for you, then it’s great for us. We look forward to helping you find your perfect fit from our selection of used cars in Fort Wayne, IN.
