Benefits of Buying a Used Volkswagen

Are you in the market for a new vehicle but aren’t able to fork out the price of a new one? At Jeff Smith Volkswagen, we know that buying new isn’t for everyone that’s why we offer our customers the opportunity to get themselves into a used vehicle. There are so many benefits to buying used that we’ve outlined them nicely below.

When you buy used, the first thing you’ll notice is that the price is significantly lower than that of a new vehicle. A lot of the available used vehicles we have to offer can be as close to 50% lower in price than on new cars. That can save you thousands of dollars. In addition to lower cost, you also don’t have to worry about depreciation, because the bulk of it has already occurred. The second you drive a new vehicle off the lot, it depreciates and it can drop 11% just on the drive home alone. That means your $20,000 purchase just went down to $17,800.

Some of our used vehicles come with warranties so that you can sleep a little easier knowing that you’re covered by some factory maintenance and issues under your warranty. If you want the utmost peace of mind, you can opt in to any of our certified pre-owned vehicles that begin with a thorough inspection, fixes to anything broken, and is certified by Volkswagen assuring the highest quality.

For those of us who are environmentally conscious, buying used is much better for the environment. A lot of the carbon dioxide that a vehicle produces during its lifetime occurs during manufacturing and initial shipment but when you buy used it reduces the output into the environment. And, all those newer hybrid models that are meant to be better for the environment use lithium-ion, lead-acid, or nickel-metal hydride batteries that affect the environment more than a used car because of the toxic waste left behind by batteries and acid.
