Benefits of driving a low mileage pre-owned vehicle

Drivers often find that new vehicles aren’t all they’re cracked up to be. When you need to upgrade your current driving situation to something new, that doesn’t mean you must fork up a ton of money to get one. In fact, you can get a pre-owned vehicle with the same quality as a new vehicle for a much lower price. Take a look at the benefits of driving a low-mileage pre-owned vehicle here on our blog!

If you’re a driver who wants to experience driving a new car for much less, opt instead for a pre-owned vehicle from Third Coast Auto group. Our inventory is full of vehicles under 100,000 miles, and we have a few reasons you should make the switch. For starters, pre-owned vehicles are much less expensive. New vehicles lose about 20 percent of their value after just one year, and another 10 percent each year after that. While that’s bad news for the seller, that’s great news for you, the buyer. You’ll be paying much less for a quality vehicle than your friends who buy a new vehicle.

Opting for a used low-mileage vehicle will also allow you to drive the vehicle for a long time yet. Vehicles made in the last decade or so are made to last a long time, some upwards of 250,000 miles or more if properly maintained. If your pre-owned vehicle has under 100,000 miles, chances are it has a lot of life left in it. should you decide to resell it somewhere down the line, you will lose a little value, but nearly as much as another person who sells their new car they purchased a few years ago.

  1. Thanks for helping me learn about the benefits of driving low mileage used cars. I had no idea that opting for a pre-owned vehicle is an advantage since they are usually made to last a long time, depending on maintenance. Besides, they are less expensive than buying new cars. With that said, I shall then look for sales online.
