Why Buy a Used Car in Effingham, Illinois

Why Buy a Used Toyota in Effingham Search Used Inventory

When you're shopping for your next vehicle around Effingham, Illinois, you have plenty of options, including whether to buy a used car or a brand-new one. Here at Dan Hecht Toyota, we see value in both new and pre-owned vehicles for sale. But today, we're reviewing the top reasons many drivers choose to select one of our quality used cars for sale when searching for their automobile.

Why buy used cars? Here are the top reasons to purchase pre-owned!

Price and Value

Every car shopper knows that the pre-owned vehicles for sale in their local area are more affordable than buying a new car. Pricing is a major factor for most motorists, so why not consider saving some money by purchasing a late-model used car, truck or SUV?

Modern used cars for sale provide exceptional value for your money, especially when that used car is a Toyota! Here at Dan Hecht Toyota in Effingham, IL, we stock top-quality Toyota used cars for sale that provide the dependable transportation and fuel-efficient travels you're looking for, all at a price that won't bust your budget.

Depreciation

Depreciation is a significant factor in the lower cost of pre-owned vehicles for sale. Since a used car has already faced its steepest depreciation, you can purchase one for hundreds or thousands of dollars less than a comparable new model.

While there certainly are some great things about new cars -- like a full factory warranty and that new-car smell -- they haven't gone through depreciation until you drive one off the new-car lot. So, once you take home a brand-new vehicle, it will likely depreciate in value at a faster rate than if you had purchased a pre-owned car.

Other Costs

Looking beyond the vehicle's price and depreciation cost, there are other factors related to your budget to consider when deciding between a new or used car.

The pre-owned vehicles for sale near Decatur, IL, will likely offer you other financial benefits compared to a brand-new car. You might save money in the following additional areas when you buy a used car:

  • Sales tax
  • Registration fees
  • Insurance premiums
  • Dealer fees
