New Car vs Used Car: What to Buy

May 20th, 2014 by

Woman buying a new carIt’s not difficult to suppose that of one main reasons drivers all over Rhode Island choose to buy a used car over a new car: price. At Shannon Motors, we agree that price is one of the major factors drivers choose to buy one of our used cars, but it’s far from the only one.

Why Buy Used?

While we did already address the savings involved in buying a used car over a new one, it’s worth pointing out again as it can translate to thousands of dollars that you can spend on something else. And if you think buying used means that you’re accruing those savings by risking the quality of your vehicle, let us put that rumor to bed right now.

All of our vehicles undergo a multi-point inspection that ensures the car is up to the standards of Shannon Motors (with complementary interior and exterior detailing), including:

  • Important engine components
  • Practical and cosmetic interior and exterior issues
  • Brakes, tires, steering, and suspension
  • Road test

And that brings us around to our next point in favor of buying used: the kinks have been worked out and it’s been broken in. The fact is that when a new car comes off the line, there are often problems and recalls, and you can avoid many of those by buying used, as these vehicles have withstood the test of time by letting the previous owner handle any headaches that may have occurred.

Finally, one of the main reasons our drivers come to us for used cars is that they know Shannon Motors is a name they can trust. By visiting a used car dealer you already trust, you can get one of the best varieties of vehicles to choose from. Good luck trying to find a dealership you trust that offers you brand new versions of vehicles from Honda, Hyundai, Mitsubishi, Ford, Chevrolet, and more like we do.
