Why Buy a Used Vehicle at Victory Chevrolet of Smithville

If you live around Independence, Kansas City, or Smithville and you are looking to get another vehicle, you know that buying a new vehicle is a costly investment. If money is a bit tight right now, or if you are looking for a starter vehicle for a new driver or just a second vehicle for the family, check out our inventory of used vehicles at Victory Chevrolet of Smithville.  We have a large selection of pre-owned vehicles to explore.

Advantages of Buying Used

If you need a vehicle, but can’t afford a new vehicle right now, consider getting a used car, truck, minivan, or SUV from Victory Chevrolet of Smithville. Here’s why:

  • If you buy a new vehicle, you will pay above the sticker price to get the options you want. When you buy used you can look for a model you like with the options you want without paying extra because the sticker price on the used vehicle already reflects the options on the vehicle.
  • Your monthly payments will also reflect the higher price of the new vehicle with the added options as well. With a used or pre-owned vehicle, if you need financial assistance, odds are better that you can get the financing you need with the monthly payments you want.
  • Another factor to consider when buying new is the depreciation factor. Within weeks of driving the new vehicle off the lot, it will likely already have depreciated by hundreds or thousands of dollars. With used vehicles, much of the depreciation has already happened.
  • Manufacturers stop making most models at some point. Buying a used vehicle is a way to get into the model you loved even if it isn’t being manufactured today. For instance, there was the Chevy Cruze or Cobalt, or even the well-loved Cavalier. While many of these models are hard to find, some newer obsolete models are still being sold.

Depending on how much you want to pay for a used vehicle, you can find some models at low prices. Check out inventory under $10K if you want low payments or to pay cash for your vehicle.

Financing a Used Model

If you’ve had credit issues in the past or this is your first car loan, you may find it easier to get approved for a used vehicle. Lenders are more willing to take a risk on a lower loan amount.
