What most car owners do not know is that cars and trucks depreciate faster when bought new. Pre-owned vehicles on the other hand depreciate slowly over time. Market price of a new car when you sell it after three years decreases to at least 50%. However, a three year old used car only loses 30% of its value when resold after three years of use. Depreciation on new cars therefore, is faster than with certified pre-owned vehicles.
Technology has also done wonders in the car manufacturing industry. Most of the cars manufactured in recent years are more reliable and dependable than ever. If you do an in-depth model research, you’d find that many models will last up to 160,000 kms before requiring any major engine work.
The insurance you pay for a used car is also significantly less than what you pay for a new car because lower costs means lower insurance premiums. You also get to save on registration costs as the price of registration decreases for every year the car is driven. So costs of registration go down as the car ages.
All these and more make buying used cars worth it for you. Ride Time in Winnipeg Manitoba has a vehicle showroom full of pre-owned vehicles for you to choose from. Schedule test drive today. With our online purchase capabilities and numerous credit solutions, you can also get online credit approval making your vehicle shopping as easy as possible.
There are different recommended used cars to purchase depending on the body type. Dealerships in Winnipeg even have newer models that come in with a different fuel type than the usual gasoline or diesel; or newer features such as remote keyless entry, heated seats, winter tires and Android auto. Here are the recommended used cars to buy per body type:
It is presumed that a car in good condition runs an average of 18,000-25,000 kms per year (22,000-30,000 kms for used trucks). Most people recommend buying cars with less than 200,000 kilometers and that are less than 10 years old.
It is not a bad idea and there are actually quite a number of reasons why it’s good to buy a car that no longer registers low kms. on the odometer. High-mileage cars usually come with a lower purchase price. So when you calculate payments needed you might not even need to apply for credit. Cars with over 160k kms on them also depreciate at a much slower rate. Insurance is also cheaper on these kinds of cars. In addition, the reliability of cars in general are getting better and better throughout the years. So this means that cars with high mileage on them are more likely to last a long time. It is however important to review the history of a car you are buying especially if it already has 160k kms on it. Ask yourself if this was a family owned vehicle driven daily within Winnipeg MB or if it is a rental used by sales personnel to go all over the country. What is important is the car is regularly maintained.
There are arguments for both mileage and age of the car. People are usually told to stay away from cars with high mileage even though they are bound to be cheaper. However if for example a Honda Pilot reaches 160,000 kms without encountering any major problems then this is a sign that it is of condition regardless of age. Vehicles with proper maintenance regardless of both age and mileage are always good purchases. However newer models do come in with special features not available for cars older than 10 years. Models that are only 2-5 years old offer a keyless entry or a remote starter.
