Benefits of buying a used car

Posted on 25th November 2022

Buying any car is an exciting prospect, but buying a used car comes with a whole new set of things to think about too. Though the idea of a brand-new car is always appealing, opting for a used model can see you reap a whole lot of rewards. 

So what are these benefits and why should you be looking at a used model for your next car? Let’s take a look at some of the reasons. 

A lot of the depreciation has been taken away

One of the biggest financial hits that you have to endure with a new car is depreciation. Once you’ve driven that brand-new car away from the forecourt, it has already lost a lot of its value. 

However, that’s not so much of an issue with a used model. Much of that initial depreciation has already occurred, so you’re able to get a better deal and more value from any used car you buy. 

Variety of models

There’s a huge amount of choice in the used car market. It means that you’re better able to tailor your next car to your desired budget because there’s a number of options with different levels of equipment and on-board technology. 

At the moment, there are all types of different models available through HPL Motors, fitting different budgets. 

Financing can be cheaper

Financing a new car can often be an expensive process. However, with used cars, it can be a far more cost-effective affair with lower prices and smaller deposits meaning that there’s less to fork out to get behind the wheel of a car. 

HPL Motors currently offers many different financing options, even to those who currently have bad credit. 

You can still get intact warranties

It might so strange, but many cars currently on HPL Motors are accompanied by a manufacturer warranty. That’s because companies such as Kia offer excellent seven-year warranties on their vehicles. 

But the best part is they’re transferable between owners. So even if you’re buying a used version, you’ll still be able to use some of that manufacturer warranty. 

Cars are at their most efficient

When you buy a brand-new car, all of its components are at their very newest. However, that means that the car hasn’t had any time to ‘loosen’ up and, as a result, will mean that it won’t be at its most efficient, to begin with. 

A used car with decent miles on, however, has completed this ‘running in’ period and will be operating at a very efficient level.
