A new car usually comes with a bigger price tag, but it has its advantages. New cars come with new and up-to-date features. They also tend to have better financing rates, a full warranty, dependability, and new cars have fewer maintenance needs. Perhaps most importantly, a new car simply gives the driver a better experience. New vehicles come with the most modern technology available and typically have more efficient engines. Basically, if you want the best driving experience possible, a new car is the way to go.

If you’re more interested in saving money, a pre-owned car is the better option. You will save money on the initial purchase, of course, but there are other ways a used car will save you some cash. Used cars depreciate in value much slower than new ones. This means they retain much more of their value at the time of purchase. Used cars also generally come with lower insurance premiums and maintenance costs. There are plenty of reasons to love a new car or a used car, and we can help you make that decision. Come to Eric Von Schledorn Motors and our salespeople will guide you during your car-buying journey.
