To Buy New or Used- That Is the Question

February 4th, 2019 by

Midtown Toyota is one of the leading Toyota dealers in Chicago. We are known for our five-star level customer service and our wide selection of new and pre-owned Toyota brand vehicles. Many of our new customers are on the fence as to whether they should purchase something brand new or something that is certified pre-owned. Both types have their pros and cons, and in the end, it all depends on your automotive preferences.

Certified pre-owned vehicles are very different from standard used cars. Certified pre-owned cars are late model vehicles that have received a multi-point inspection from the manufacturer or the dealer. These inspections are incredibly thorough, covering everything from the mechanical essentials like the engine and the transmission to interior and aesthetic features like the power windows or infotainment system. These cars are often refurbished to the point of being as good as new, and their much cheaper than a brand new vehicle.

On the other hand, new vehicles are great for drivers who expect to drive their vehicle for a long time. From mile 0 to mile 100,000, new cars offer the benefit of experiencing every mile of the vehicle. At the same time, new vehicle depreciate much faster than certified pre-owned vehicles, and often cost much more. In the end, it all depends on what you want out of your car, and how much money you’re willing to spend. Some drivers prefer to own a car that’s only been driven by them and includes the latest features in automotive tech. Although, other drivers don’t care too much about the bells and whistles, and want something that’s affordable and reliable.

If you visit Midtown Toyota, we can help you determine whether a certified pre-owned or new car is right for you. We have a wide selection of new and certified pre-owned Toyota cars to choose from, and can walk you through every step of both processes. At Midtown Toyota we are dedicated to helping you find the car that leaves you completely satisfied.
