New vs Used

Oklahomans love their cars, trucks and SUVs. So folks have fun looking for vehicles in the Edmond, OKC, Midwest City, Norman or surrounding areas. It doesn't hurt that in Oklahoma City, you have a great selection of vehicles to choose from. But deciding on a vehicle is a major decision. Most people begin with a simple question: new or used? Because it is dependent on many factors, the answer may not be as simple as you think. 

Be sure to consider these facts and ask these questions when deciding which faction of vehicle you should align with: 



Used cars have great initial value

Save money on the maintenance a used car would require

You let someone else deal with the 20-30% off the lot depreciation

Manufacturers offer high dollar incentives to counteract the initial cost of the vehicle 

Used cars generally have lower down payment options


How long do you plan on having the vehicle? Depreciation doesn't matter if you drive it for 20 years

Used cars generally have a lower insurance cost.

New cars a more reliable for a longer period of time

Each person is different, just like their respective situations. Consider your down payment amount, the time you want to devote to the car, in both drive time and maintenance, and how much you are willing to spend each month. Also remember, there are many financing options available. Either way you go, it's best to consider each option. That is how you get the best value.
