When you need new wheels and don’t want to lay out all the money it takes to get into a new car, the best way to save money is to buy used. New technology and better build quality make it easier than ever to find a good used car for under $10,000, and you can find these cars on your favorite dealership lots. Here are some of the benefits of buying a used car for $10,000 or even less.
Buying used keeps you from getting the depreciation hit as soon as you drive your car off the lot, and if you stay under $10,000, it’s even more beneficial. When you need to stick to a budget, start your shopping on the used lot to find a car that fits your needs and your budget.
When you spend less than $10,000 on your vehicle, you’ll notice a big difference in your insurance premiums, your registration fees, and the overall maintenance costs. A used car, pickup, or SUV that’s in good condition will have a lower cost of ownership. A car’s value is one of the primary items insurance companies consider when determining rates. When you purchase a used car with a lower value, you’ll see a significant difference in the monthly insurance premium you have to pay.
A smaller car loan is also easier to pay off, and once you do, you can drop some of the comprehensive coverage and lower your insurance rates even more.
Take a look at a used Chevy, and you’ll find you can get a high-end trim with lots of extra features. When you buy a late-model used car or a new vehicle, you might have to stick with an entry-level trim in order to keep your monthly payments where you need them. For example, you can pay under $10,000 for a 2011 Ford Fusion SE and still get a leather-wrapped steering wheel, power-adjustable exterior mirrors with integrated spotter mirrors, power windows, and the MyKey safety system.
Cars last longer than they ever have before, and you can feel confident that you’re getting a used car that’s reliable and in good condition because of the easy availability of a vehicle history report. Companies such as Carfax help shoppers with their peace of mind when looking at used cars. You can find accurate data on any vehicle that includes how many times it changed hands, whether it’s been in an accident, and whether it has received repairs. These history reports are great tools for anyone looking at used vehicles.
