At Ourisman Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM-Bowie, we have a wide selection of new and used cars, which can fit any lifestyle. There are plenty of reasons to get a new car, but it’s understandable if you’re not ready to take that plunge.

Here are some ways used cars can save you money.

Depreciation & Demand

Like it or not, the value of a new car depreciates very quickly. If you want good value for a used car, find one that is three or four years old. You should also be able to get an extended warranty to cover repair costs for a longer term than usual.

Due to supply chain issues, demands for cars can periodically spike as manufacturers experience a logjam in supplies. When this happens, the sticker price for new cars can go through the roof.

Even with their value depreciated, used cars can see such a demand that their sale price can be far higher than usual. You could leverage a good, recently-made used car and turn a nice profit under the right circumstances.

CPO

Definitely look into a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) vehicle, rather than any old used car you might find online. CPOs go through rigorous, multi-point assessments. Each vehicle’s history is tracked, with every repair, accident, previous owner, and safety recall accounted for.

You can get a lot of extras through dealers when you choose a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle. Many different perks can be found, from complimentary service visits and oil changes, to extended warranties.

You might find more flexibility when you choose a used car over a new one, so be sure and do your research. Contact Ourisman Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM-Bowie today!
