Why Buy Used Cars at Brandon Tomes Subaru this Fall

August 16th, 2021 by

Fall is the perfect time of year for a new car: settling into cozy seat warmers, a pumpkin spice latte in your sturdy cup holder, and crisp fall air flowing through your sunroof. Of course, if you’re a savvy customer, you understand that “new” doesn’t have to mean more than “new to you!”

A used truck, car, or SUV carries almost all of the benefits of a brand-new vehicle, with few of the drawbacks. And with the Subaru Certified Pre-Owned Program, you get the assurance of the same reliability as a new car. Plus, by buying used, you avoid the fabled drop in value from driving a new vehicle off the lot, while still enjoying modern perks and technology.

Subaru Reliability Means Peace of Mind

Subaru is widely known to build some of the most reliable and high performing cars on the road. There’s a reason why so many older Subarus are still on the road today: they’re carefully fine-tuned for reliability and longevity, so they hold their value better than most other cars on the market.

Subaru certified pre-owned is more than just a used car. It’s subjected to a 152 point inspection ensuring its quality hasn’t been compromised by its previous owner, so you feel like you are driving off the lot in a brand-new Subaru.

Even better, our certified used vehicles come with a CARFAX vehicle history report, genuine Subaru parts, 24/7 roadside assistance, and a 7 year /100,000-mile powertrain coverage so you can ensure your vehicle stays in the tip-top shape you received it in!

Extended Warranties

Buying Subaru certified pre-owned means you get an extended warranty. For instance, if you purchase a certified pre-owned Subaru ascent, you’re given a new-car warranty on top of the old warranty. So in essence, it lasts longer.

This also means that you have more time for the manufacturer to pay for any damages, repairs, or replacement parts during this period. In other words, that’s less money you’ll have to spend.

Be sure to browse through our certified pre-owned Subaru inventory because the Subaru you want may just be right for a cheaper price with an extended warranty. We also have a great selection of vehicle specials you don’t want to miss out on!

Get More Value Out of a Used Car

It’s probably pretty obvious that used cars are cheaper than new ones. What might not be so obvious is how much value used vehicles can still carry, even throughout their lives with you.

New cars depreciate more quickly than old cars, meaning that if you buy a used car, truck, or SUV, your vehicle will actually keep more of the value you paid for it over time than if you’d bought new. On average, Americans save $14,000 by purchasing a three-year-old car over a new one. For example, if you wanted to buy a used Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid versus a new Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid, you’ll see that the value in the used Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid lasts longer. The new Subaru will depreciate a lot faster because its value can only decrease due to it being brand new.

Not only will your initial pay-out and car note payment be lower with a used car, you can insure it for less as well. Add to that the cheaper licensing, registration, and inspection fees in many states, and it really can make a lot of sense to buy used.
