Pros and cons of buying a used toyota in LA

Posted Thursday, Feb 27, 2014 by nhtwpprod

Often, when a buyer is trying to make the decision between a new or used vehicle at the Los Angeles Toyota dealer, it seems like an all-or-nothing decision. They often feel that they will either get everything they want in a brand new model or settle for something of much less value in a used vehicle. The reality is that used vehicles often are the best value, even though they may not be the best choice for the person. It all comes down to the person’s unique circumstances and what they expect from their new car.

It should come as no surprise that a used vehicle is going to be less expensive than a similar new one. The same depreciation that starts when the new vehicle is driven off the lot has already occurred with the older model. Also, insurance and taxes will be lower for additional savings all the way around.

Another pro is that a used car may include features that you couldn’t afford to add to a new model. In some ways, you are “trading up” instead of settling for something less.

In some cases, reliability can be an issue. After all, a used vehicle has already surpassed its original warranty. Vehicles may require more maintenance and repair. Fortunately, new Toyotas are better than ever and that means that the used Toyota cars are a higher quality vehicle. When you purchase Toyota certified pre-owned vehicles, you get the same great Toyota quality and technology with a guarantee that the vehicle has been checked out and determined to meet our criteria.
