The Argument for Used Cars

The advantage of buying a used car is obvious. You can get a used car for much cheaper than a new car. In fact, our used vehicle inventory has a large selection of pre-owned vehicles for sale for less than $10,000 as well as special pricing on select used vehicles. There are several other reasons that drivers throughout the Springfield, IL prefer to purchase pre-owned cars.

  • Lower down payment: If you don’t have access to a lot of money at once, this can be a major advantage.
  • More options: More brands, styles, models, and trims are available not only in the inventory, but in your budget.
  • Less depreciation: Cars depreciate rapidly in their first three years, so why not wait until the value plateaus?
  • Lower car insurance cost: Save in other aspects of car ownership.
  • Less stress: Getting a ding in your car can feel like the end of the world, but you won’t wince as much when the car is used compared to when it’s the first scratch or dent.

The Argument for New Cars

As much as we all love that new car smell, it’s not a good enough reason to spend the kind of money that a new car requires. However, the advantages of buying new cars are many and varied.

  • Guaranteed vehicle quality: Pre-owned vehicles will never look or feel as nice as a new car.
  • Newest vehicle technology: Everything from entertainment features to driver assistance systems.
  • New vehicle warranty: Hyundai offers America’s best warranty, significantly longer than most competitors’.
  • 24-Hour Roadside Assistance: Included with the new vehicle warranty.
  • Access to manufacturer incentives: These may include cash back, low to no APR, and special lease offers that help to significantly offset the price of your new car.
