Why Buying Pre-Owned Might Be Right for You?

by Kevin Smith Author

Buying a new car is awesome. It is also extremely expensive and often out of reach for everyday folks.  For many people, an affordable alternative to buying new is to buy certified, pre-owned. If you are looking for a new SUV, you may want to take a look at a pre-owned Chevrolet Tahoe in San Antonio, TX; here is why.


Certified, pre-owned means you get the same high quality as “new,” without the price tag. You can even get that “new car smell” if you ask nicely (actually, that comes free with any vehicle.) You will, though, save thousands on a “like new” vehicle with up-to-date and reliable parts and extras. Even if you can afford a new vehicle, but cannot afford all the extras you want, a pre-owned option might be for you because it will let you get a vehicle as special with everything you want for much less.

Vehicle Value

Drive a new car off the lots, its value plummets as soon as you cross the boundary line. With certified, pre-owned, that depreciation has already happened, so its value will remain constant. That means what you pay for your vehicle is what you can reasonably ask for on the open market. Your insurance also might go down as insurance rates are based in part on the value of the vehicle.


A certified, pre-owned vehicle will likely come with a manufacturer’s warranty that will cover the rare occurrence when something breaks. The vehicle has also been broken in, which means any bugs will have been worked out. When you consider that vehicles today last longer and are more dependable, with pre-owned you get the coverage of “new” in a much less expensive vehicle.

More Features

We covered this a bit up top, but here it is again: With pre-owned, you get the dependability of a new vehicle, with its extras and at a much less expensive price. That means if the vehicle does not have something you want, you can have it added and still save on the price. You truly can get more for less with a pre-owned vehicle.


Certified, pre-owned vehicles go through a rigorous inspection process and all parts meet the standards of the original manufacturer. If there are parts that do not meet that quality level or if there are problems with the car, they are fixed. Additionally, since only certified dealers can offer manufacturer certified vehicles, you know that what you bought is of the highest quality.

A pre-owned vehicle means “almost new,” with new vehicle dependability and features, but without the new vehicle price tag or depreciation. If you are looking for an SUV, a  pre-owned Chevrolet Tahoe in San Antonio, TX might be just what you want. Best of all, you get that new vehicle smell at a fraction of the cost.
