Having a used vehicle has its pros and cons. First of all, the pro of having any vehicle at all is that it’s a convenient means of transportation. Hopping into your very own vehicle is a lot more appealing than having to wait for a bus or a train or having to pay for over-priced cabs back and forth. Another pro of having a used car (compared to leasing or financing a vehicle) is that a used car is a lot more affordable. Depending on your price budget and preference, you can purchase a suitable used vehicle for $3,000-$5,000. When you purchase a used vehicle, you pay one price up front, thereby eliminating monthly payments. Also, when purchasing a used vehicle you have the option to either get liability insurance or full coverage insurance. Most people with used vehicles choose liability insurance because it is a lot more affordable than full coverage insurance. If, however, you get into an accident with liability insurance, the insurance will not pay to fix your car or give the funds to purchase a new car–this is one con. Another con is that with used cars, unlike new cars, mechanical problems usually arise. Perhaps the battery will die or perhaps the transmission will act up. These are some problems that you will not face with a new car.
Leasing or financing a new car also has it’s pros and cons. One pro is that you will be driving a perfect, brand new, 2013 vehicle. When you purchase a new car, you will not have to worry about mechanical problems because the car is brand new. Also, if you get into an accident with a new car, your insurance will pay for the damages. If the damages are not repairable, the insurance company will provide funds to purchase a new vehicle. Now, as good as this sounds, it is important to keep in mind that you are paying extra for full coverage insurance every month.
