A common question we hear across all of our locations is, “Should I buy a new or used car?” To help make your decision less daunting, we have created this car buying guide that breaks down what you need to know before you make a purchase. A new car has had no previous owners, and it features all of the latest amenities to take your daily drives to new heights. A new car could also be from a previous model year, but our staff can help you find a custom vehicle, if desired.
Now, a used car has had at least one previous owner. This allows you to enjoy a newer vehicle and its features, for less. A certified pre-owned vehicle offers the best of both worlds. Certified pre-owned vehicles must meet stricter manufacturer standards and typically come with a warranty. See your Holman dealer for more information regarding your future vehicle’s warranty. Some of the benefits of buying new vs. buying used are:
When comparing a new vs. used car, you will be able to take advantage of these benefits when buying new:
Buying used can be an excellent investment, especially if you choose a vehicle that has been well-maintained.
Not sure whether buying used vs. certified pre-owned is right for you? CPO vehicles allow you to drive a new-to-you vehicle with complete peace of mind.
When you purchase a vehicle and take out a loan, you make monthly payments for a set amount of time. A portion of those payments covers the interest on the loan, and the rest goes toward the principal balance. You build equity as you make your payments, and once the loan is paid off, the car is yours.
When you lease, you make a monthly payment on the vehicle to drive the car for a set amount of time. When the end of the lease term is up, you will return the vehicle to the dealership.
Some drivers are hesitant to opt for a pre-owned vehicle because there is an overwhelming amount of options and a lot of unknowns. However, buying a used car can be an excellent investment when you know what to look for. There are so many benefits of buying a used car, which is why we have created this helpful used car buying guide. Explore our used car buying tips below so you can shop for a pre-owned vehicle with confidence.
If you are not quite ready to adopt the EV lifestyle, you may be wondering about hybrid vs. electric cars. What is a hybrid? There are different variants of hybrid vehicles, but each type shares the common thread of a gasoline engine and electric motor working in tandem. For example, a parallel hybrid vehicle has an electric motor and gasoline engine that work at the same time to power the vehicle. A plug-in hybrid vehicle often allows drivers to travel on electricity alone, and once the battery is depleted, the gasoline-powered engine seamlessly takes over.
We have dealerships nationwide offering a vast selection of vehicles from some of the biggest names in the automotive industry:
