New vs. Used Car

 

Deciding which car you want to buy can be a very long and difficult process. Mitsubishi models, both new and old, have great features to them and both types of vehicle have their advantages and disadvantages. Coastal Mitsubishi will try to help you decide what is right for you - a new car or a used car.


New Car

Everyone wants to buy a new car initially. You get to be the first owner of one of the most expensive products you'll ever buy. There are plenty of reasons why this is a great idea.

First and foremost, everything about the car is new, obviously. You don't need to worry about finding scratches and dents on the car when you first get it, but you do need to worry about getting the first one. The first one is always the worst. Another benefit is that you'll be able to stay on course with scheduled maintenance and shouldn't have to worry about any major technical problems for awhile with a new car. You'll also have the latest in tech and comfort features in a new car, along with the latest design from Mitsubishi.

However, there are some downsides to buying new. It's typically far more expensive to buy a similarly equipped car new compared to used. This makes the initial cost to own higher, and you'll probably pay more for the higher insurance rates as well. A major issue with new cars is paying the massive depreciation hit that comes standard on every new car. That's entirely on your investment and happens rapidly. 


Used Car

It can be less desirable initially, but owning a used car looks like a smart investment after some research. There are some great reasons to buy a used car and some obvious disadvantages. 

The biggest advantage to buying a used car is the price. It'll almost always be more affordable to buy a vehicle with some miles on it. This carries over into lower insurance rates as well. You'll be able to expand the sort of cars you're looking for with used vehicles as well. So instead of only looking at new Outlander Sport models, you can look at used models and maybe include the more expensive (if new) Outlander. Options that might be out of the budget can be found on used vehicles as well. A good CPO program like Mitsubishi's can help with maintenance and repairs.

Some clear drawbacks are that you'll need to stay on top of the maintenance history and might need to pay for more expensive repairs sooner than with a new car, which costs money and time when your car is getting taken care of. Automakers try to regularly redesign or update their vehicles, so yours might not have the latest design or features if it's bought used.



Both of these choices are great options and you can't go wrong with getting any new or used Mitsubishi. Visit Coastal Mitsubishi in Melbourne, FL to learn which is right for you.
