Why You Should Consider Buying Used at Cronic Nissan

​ 
Buying a used car is somewhat of a taboo in the car-buying process. Many consumers avoid doing so because they feel a used car is somehow lesser than a new car. Now, though, used car buyers no longer have to fear that they are purchasing a lemon, which will only end up costing them more money. In fact, used vehicles are quickly becoming the better option than new vehicles. Here are some reasons why you should consider buying a used vehicle.
​ 

Pay less. Right away, purchasing a used car can help save thousands of dollars. Typically, used cars have less sales tax, lower insurance costs, and lower registration rates depending on your state. These savings can add up significantly, helping you easily stay within your car-buying budget.

​ 
Lower depreciation. When you purchase a brand-new vehicle, the moment you drive it off the dealership lot it drops significantly in value. The value of a new car can sometimes drop 54% after three years. This isn’t the case when you purchase a used vehicle. Rather than losing the value immediately like you do with a new car, a used car will keep its value and depreciate at a much slower rate.
​ 
More gadgets for an affordable price. Technology and other bells and whistles can be expensive on a new vehicle. If you want features like a top-notch infotainment system or a rearview camera, purchasing a used vehicle will get you more for your money. Buying a higher trim level on an older model, even if the model is just one- or two-years-old, will help you stay within your budget so you can get all the features you want.
​ 
CPO options. Because used vehicles are becoming such a viable option, many carmakers—including Nissan—have created Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) programs. Nissan’s CPO program requires that CPO vehicles are less than six years old and have fewer than 80,000 miles. These vehicles must also pass a 167-point inspection to make sure they are in top-notch condition for our consumers.
