The choice of going with a new or a used car is one each shopper around Fayette, Cullman, and Jasper, Alabama, has to make. Which direction should you go? Both new and used cars offer unique perks. In this overview, we'll be looking at five advantages of buying a used car.

Pre-owned models have always been a value-rich, reliable option for car shoppers. And at Bill Penney Ford, we continue adding to our used inventory whenever possible. So, if you want to browse used cars from the comfort of your home, you can easily do so!

Advantage 1: Spoiled for Choices

When you look at a new car, you typically have between three and 10 trim levels to consider. Used cars give you far more options.

If the model you're interested in has been available for a period of time, you'll not only have trim levels to consider but also different model years. So, everything from the styling of the car to the technology, performance, and safety may be altered from year to year. If you prefer the styling of a 2018 version compared to a 2020 version, you can easily select the car of your choice.

Advantage 2: Reliability is Known

New cars can certainly be reliable. Yet, because used cars come with a vehicle history report, you know for a fact how reliable it is. If it's passed 50,000 miles without any mechanical issues, you can expect the model to continue being reliable in the future with the proper care.

Advantage 3: Impressive Value

Used cars often offer more value than a brand-new alternative. If the model is only a year or two behind the newest model, you're also not sacrificing much in terms of innovation or performance.

Advantage 4: Certified Pre-Owned Warranties

A certified pre-owned model is a used car that has undergone extensive testing to ensure long-term reliability. Because the model has passed these rigorous tests, you'll receive helpful warranties that often cover the powertrain as well as the vehicle's service needs.

Additionally, certain certified pre-owned warranties come with features such as roadside assistance. If you happen to run out of gas or get a punctured tire, this roadside assistance program is extremely helpful.

Advantage 5: Our Used Inventory Is Extensive

Whether you're in the market for coupe, a sedan, an SUV, or a truck, our used inventory makes it easy to locate the right fit. You can organize pre-owned models through different search filters. You can also compare and contrast the features or specifications easily between two used cars.

And when you're ready, we're happy to help you get behind the wheel for a test drive.
