Should I Buy a New or Used Mazda?

May 21st, 2013 by

Buying-a-new-car-1-300x199These days, this question has become much hard to answer thanks to the economy. A new car has a higher price, but is more reliable. A used car costs less up front, but you’re going to be looking at some high repair costs much sooner. So which should you pick?

Reasons for Buying New

There are many reasons for buying a new Mazda: you get access to the latest technology and often get fantastic warranties. New car owners won’t be paying for much maintenance for several years and anything that pops up will be covered with the extensive Mazda warranty package. We also have laws in place to make sure you don’t get stuck with a bad car. Sometimes mistakes are made, but if you can prove your car is a lemon, then you can get your money back or another vehicle.

The Case for Buying Used

The most upfront benefit of buying a used car is price. Vehicles depreciate immediately after leaving the dealership, but you can buy a used car at around 30% cheaper than the current new model, and not take this hit.

If you’re worried about the reliability of a used car, then you should consider a Certified Pre-Owned Mazda. These vehicles are newer, have only a few miles on them, and go through a thorough reconditioning process. They also come with a warranty package, just like a new car.

Right now, it’s a buyer’s market, with more options than ever sitting at dealerships, ready for you to make a deal. It’s much easier now to get a car that’s only a couple years old with all the modern features you want at a surprising price.
