Buying a used car can be a sound financial decision that will save you thousands of dollars, if you do your homework carefully. Especially in these tough times when you need to save money and you absolutely must save gas.
New cars lose about 40% of their value during the first three years after they leave the lot. From there on the depreciation process slows down considerably until it reaches the vehicle's salvage value.
Purchasing a good used car means that you get to pocket almost half of its original cost while enjoying a relatively new vehicle. A used car has several other advantages such as reduced depreciation, lower tax rates, lower registration costs and a lower insurance premium.
Furthermore, today's cutthroat competition has forced manufacturers to build more reliable cars that often carry longer warranty periods than their predecessors. Thus, it is very possible to find a three-year old car that is still covered by the original manufacturer's warranty.
