New vs Used Cars
If you’re searching for a new ride near Atlantic City or Egg Harbor, NJ, you have two paths to take: go the new-car route or get a used one. Because each type has its own benefits, you may not be sure of the right one for your lifestyle.
We’re here to help with this detailed guide on new vs. used cars. Discover what they offer below, and don’t hesitate to contact Boardwalk Honda with any questions you may have.
What Are New Vehicles?
When you go to lease or buy a new car, you’re getting one that’s the current model year or possibly even the next model year. Either way, you’d be getting a vehicle that’s had no previous owner. You’ll be the first to drive it around town on a regular basis, and you’ll be treated to all its impressive features.
There are many more benefits to getting a new car, such as:
- Cutting-edge technology and safety features
- An easier time finding the exact model and trim you want
- More financing options
With that last option, you can lease or buy the new model you want. If you go the used car route, though, you’re likely not able to lease it.
What Classifies a Car as Used?
Unlike new cars, used ones have had previous owners. What’s nice about buying used is that you can get a deep dive into a model’s history, thanks to reports from CARFAX® or AutoCheck.
There are also plenty of advantages to going the pre-owned route. First, the car has already undergone the depreciation process. Therefore, you may be paying less for it and have it depreciate much more slowly as it ages.
Furthermore, you may be able to get a higher trim level than if you went the new-car route. So, if you wanted something with top-of-the-line tech and creature comforts, see which used models have what you want.
Certified Pre-Owned Automobiles
New and used are the two commonly known car categories. Did you know that there’s a third, though? It’s what we call “certified pre-owned” (CPO).
CPO cars are used but are a little newer in model year, with not as many miles on the odometer. Plus, they’ve each undergone an extensive multi-point inspection. This is to ensure they meet the high standards set forth by the manufacturer.
Once a model earns that certification, it’ll receive perks like:
- Limited warranty
- SiriusXM® Satellite Radio
- Roadside assistance
