3 Myths About Used Vehicles

Buying a vehicle can be an exciting -- and stressful -- experience for anyone. Depending on your situation, whatever vehicle you choose to purchase could end up being your vehicle for years. The decision needs to be handled carefully, taking every aspect into consideration.

When most people think about buying a car, new vehicles come to mind first. Brand new cars are obviously a terrific option, but that doesn't mean they should automatically throw out other options. They might end up missing out on an even better opportunity.

Buying a used vehicle often has a negative connotation around it, but that is not the case. There are excellent used cars and trucks available for you to enjoy for many years, despite what some people might think. Here are three common myths about used vehicles:

Everyone's Second Option

That is not always the case. If you're a billionaire, fine. Maybe then you'd prefer the newest of new vehicles if money isn't an option. But for everyone else, it has to at least be on their minds.

Just because a vehicle is a little less expensive than a brand new model does not mean it's a bad car. Depending on your situation, an excellent used car may be exactly what you and your family need.

Terrible Vehicles

Another myth about used vehicles is that they're "terrible." Definitely not true. Sure. If you are purchasing a used car from some sketchy back alley dealer who keeps looking over their shoulder for the police, that might not end up being a great deal and you might get stuck with a crappy vehicle. But if you actually work with a dealership that offers excellent used cars, you'll be getting a high-quality car for a great price. What more could you ask for?

Aren't Cool

Is buying a reliable vehicle at a reasonable price cool? If it's not, then maybe being cool isn't all that great. Even so, a used car can be whatever you want it to be. Whether you want an all-black sedan or a lifted truck with an oddly placed spoiler on it... whatever your definition of cool is, you can get that in a quality used vehicle.

If you're in the Washington area, the Sunset Ford can provide you with high quality new and used vehicles for you to enjoy for years. Ford vehicles have generated about $144 billion for the U.S. two years ago and bring in an annual profit of $3.1 billion. If you still don't believe that Ford -- which owns 14.7% of the entire auto market share in the U.S. -- can provide you with a great vehicle, come to Sunset Ford today and see for yourself!
