The next time you are in the market for an automobile, you might want to consider buying a used car. Here at FIAT of Winter Haven, your local Winter Haven, FL, used FIAT car dealership, we want you to know that there are more benefits to buying used than you might have previously thought.

Reason 1: Price

As obvious as it may seem, the difference in price is significant: Used cars are almost always less expensive than new cars.

Beyond the price tag, you’ll also find savings when it comes to insuring a used car. Used cars cost less because they hold a lower valuation than new cars. While that might sound like a negative, it means that your insurance rates will be lower as well.

Reason 2: Depreciation

The biggest hit a car takes in terms of depreciation is the second it goes from being new to used, which happens essentially the moment you drive a new car off the lot. This is despite the fact that, technically speaking, the term “used” speaks more to paperwork than the actual condition of the car. If you buy new, when you try to sell or trade, you will get much less than you paid initially. When you buy used, that depreciation is largely avoided.

Reason 3: Options

By its very nature, buying new limits you to a smaller selection. When you consider buying a used vehicle, you have decades of models to choose from. This is especially useful if a feature or a design you like has been discontinued and you’re able to find it in an older model.

Whether you want a 2018 FIAT 124 Spider or a used FIAT model of yesteryear, it is our pleasure to help you find it at our FIAT dealership near Auburndale, FL. New or used, our inventory is stocked with vehicles you can depend on. We hope you’ll come in and see them for yourself!
