Why Buy a Used Car?

So, you've decided to start shopping for your next car. Before you jump right into the new inventory, we recommend considering a pre-owned vehicle. Used cars have a whole set of advantages that can make them compelling for shoppers throughout Knoxville and Pigeon Forge.

Price: It's simple -- used cars are the way to go if you're looking for a lower price. For the most part, pre-owned cars offer lower price tags than their new counterparts. Styling updates, new technology, and more can place a premium price on brand-new models. Meanwhile, lightly used vehicles offer similar quality and features for a lower price.

Selection: Shopping in our used inventory expands your selection beyond just Nissan models. In fact, you'll be able to explore popular models from a wide range of manufacturers. This broad mix of vehicles can help you make comparison and narrow down your preferences.

Depreciation: Unfortunately, new cars suffer from potentially severe depreciation. As soon as you drive off the lot, the car's value will likely take a nose dive. Used cars also deal with depreciation, but not to the same degree. Buying one is a smart move if you're looking to retain resale value.

Up-Front Costs: Many of the buying costs outside of price are lower with a used car. Immediately after your purchase, you'll need to purchase insurance and pay your state sales tax. These will probably be lower if you buy a used car.

Reliability: The stigma around used-car reliability is rapidly disappearing. Modern engineering has helped improve reliability across the board. Cars today can often be expected to drive for hundreds of thousands of miles with regular maintenance.
