When making the decision to buy a car right off the production line or one that has already been cared for by someone else, you should mull over your budget first. For those with limited cash, purchasing a used car can typically get you more bang for your buck. There are very few new cars that are listed for less than $10,000 so this is an important consideration.
A new car or truck can offer many great features including reduced maintenance and extended warranty coverage. However, for the price, you can typically purchase a like-new car with great reliability and more features. If you are thinking about a luxury type, a pre-owned version might be a great way to get the car you desire without breaking the bank.
There are even some program vehicles at your local dealer than are the best of both worlds. Typically only driven by the dealer for a few thousand miles, these cars, trucks and sports utility vehicles are deeply discounted and offer all of the perks of a newer model. Additionally, certain automakers offer certified pre-owned programs. These automobiles have undergone rigorous inspections and sometimes come with a better warranty. For trouble-free driving, get an extended warranty. It will give you peace of mind while on the road so you don't have to worry the next time your car talks.
