Debating whether to buy a new vs. used car is one of the hardest decisions for Laconia shoppers to make. Learn about the pros and cons of both options below, then explore the new Volvo inventory and used car options available at Lovering Volvo Cars Meredith, a leading local dealership.

New Car Pros and Cons

Pros of buying new:

  • New cars have the latest features and technologies to choose from
  • You'll get your car with all of its warranty intact
  • Since you own the vehicle, you can eventually sell it to recoup much of the purchase price

Cons of buying new:

  • You'll have to pay a higher sticker price to get all of the exciting features
  • Your vehicle begins to depreciate as soon as you drive off the lot
  • There will probably be less reviews out there about your vehicle's specific model year at the time

Used Car Pros and Cons

Pros of buying used:

  • A used car will be available for a lesser cost than its new counterparts
  • Insurance costs and down payment will be lower
  • There is also less anxiety about keeping the vehicle in perfect condition

Cons of buying used:

  • There may not be a warranty transferred over to you depending on the car's age
  • You will likely get less if you choose to sell later on
  • Drivers also have fewer options to choose from in terms of new features
