Used VW Cars

People on a budget, or even those who have plenty to spend on their next car, may want to consider buying a used VW. You’ll get the same impressive vehicle, but at a much lower price, as well as some additional advantages.

With the number of used cars for sale in Amarillo, Texas, there is no reason to put off checking out what’s on offer. If you need some anyway, here are six benefits to buying a used VW.

The Advantages of Used Cars in Amarillo

Initial Savings

The most obvious reason for buying a used car rather than a new one is to save money. Even purchasing a Volkswagen from the previous model year can save you thousands of dollars. If you’re willing to look at an older model year, your initial cost will decrease even more. A lower upfront cost would also allow you to get more features than you could otherwise afford, as you would be paying the same price.

Reduced Insurance

In addition to costing less initially and making lower monthly payments, used cars from Volkswagen tend to have lower insurance rates. Since used vehicles are not valued as much as newer models, insurance companies cannot charge you as much. Therefore, you save even more money each month.

Less Depreciation

Most people buy a car to get from point A to B, not as an investment. However, you shouldn’t discount depreciation.

If you plan on selling your VW in the future, then a used model will have significantly less depreciation than a new one. In fact, since the largest chunk of depreciation occurs within the first year, buying used lets you take advantage of it, rather than losing money because of it.

Confirmed Reliability

With a used Volkswagen, research will confirm that the vehicle is as reliable as you hope. By choosing a VW model that came out a year or two prior, you will have numerous reviews to read, thereby confirming your decision.

Lower Environmental Impact

Do not forget that buying a used car also helps the environment. When you buy new, every single part has to be manufactured whereas with a used vehicle, you know that parts are being used to their fullest potential.

Extra Benefits of Certified Pre-Owned VWs

While any used cars from Volkswagen will provide you with the benefits discussed above,  certified pre-owned models make even more sense. These models have undergone a 112-point inspection to ensure that everything functions as it is supposed to. You will also receive the associated Vehicle History Report that gives you further peace of mind.

Certified models also come with extra benefits, such as a 24,000-mile/2-year Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty and 24 Hour Roadside Assistance for two years.
