We have already told you about the important outlay which is required to buy a new car, instead of buying a used one. Anyway, saving is not the only factor that encourages us to choose second-hand vehicles. Since we want you to check it, we summarize some of the benefits of buying a used car.
• The price. In addition to having a lower price than newly manufactured cars, used vehicles are much cheaper. Moreover, their depreciation is slower, hence every kilometer traveled involves a lower cost.
• Less taxes. As you already know, rates for new cars are lower than for used cars. For example, in the case of a car that has just been manufactured, the registration tax may be up to 14,75% of the sales price, depending on CO2 emissions from the vehicle (concerning the change in ownership of used cars, it costs only half what it costs with new vehicles). In addition, it is mandatory to add the VAT (21%).
• Cheaper insurances. This is true: securing a new car —especially if its owner is interested in a comprehensive insurance— can be prohibitive, and it is even more expensive when it involves young or new drivers. Fortunately, this situation does not happen with used cars.
• Less risk of serious manufacturing defects. It will not be the first time that the owner of a new car is required for an urgent servicing by the company. Acquiring a second-hand car significantly reduces this possibility, since it usually happens during the first four years of the life of the car. That is why, with our used vehicles, you only must worry about enjoying your conveyance. That is easy!
