Why Buy New vs. Used In Salem, OR

Why Buy New


It's often been said that there's nothing quite like a new car smell. However, we would have to say that the sights and sounds of a new car are also pretty enjoyable! Buying a brand new vehicle right off the lot might not be for everybody. Nevertheless, those who do purchase a new vehicle can enjoy the benefits of buying new.

New Vehicles are Made to Order

When you buy a pre-owned vehicle, you are pretty much stuck with the features that the previous car owner chose. Not the case with new vehicles! Purchasing a new vehicle allows you to have your very own car tailor-made to your liking.

New Vehicles have the Latest Features

In addition to getting to choose the features that you want, you also get the latest features available when you choose to buy a new vehicle. With vehicle technology growing exponentially each year, that means that you can have the most advanced technology in your car's cabin.

New Vehicles have a Brand New Warranty

Your vehicle isn't the only thing that hasn't been used when you purchase new. Each new vehicle also comes with a brand new warranty that covers many of the service and repair costs for that vehicle.

If purchasing new seems like the right choice for you, then be sure to check out our lineup of new vehicles at Withnell Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram!

Why Buy Used

Choosing between a new or used car is one of the first decisions you will have to make when car shopping. While there are obvious advantages to buying a new car (who doesn't like all the latest bells and whistles?), buying used is one of the most popular ways to purchase a vehicle. The price is always less, the cost to own is typically less, you often have a larger selection, and there is generally more peace of mind when you buy used.

Less Cost

Buying used is one of the most financially savvy things you can do, especially because cars are among the largest purchases consumers typically make (aside from homes). That's not all - according to Bankrate, some vehicles lose up to 30% of their initial value the first year due to depreciation from lower demand. That means a car can be in perfect condition, but because it is one or more years old it simply doesn't cost more. If you're looking for deals, start in the used car lot. Plus, cost to own is often cheaper when it comes to fees and insurance costs because used car sticker prices are generally less.


More selection

When you are searching for a new car, you only have one model year to choose from; however, when you expand your search to used cars, the option multiply. Looking for a specific trim, color, or high-tech feature? No problem. Here at Withnell Dodge we can find you exactly what you're looking for.

Added Peace of Mind

Ever see that person that parks at the edge of the parking lot in the middle of nowhere? Odds are they don't have a used car. Used car buyers tend to worry less about their cars because they simply cost less. Not only does this apply to potential ding, dents, and fender benders, but there is generally less buyer's remorse and less worry over finances.

Still not convinced? Check out Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) models. These cars undergo rigorous inspections, vehicle history reports, and come with warranties. They are cheaper than a new car, but more expensive than an ordinary used car; however, there is that added peace of mind having a certified vehicle.
