Busting 3 Myths about Buying Pre-Owned
Misinformation is rampant these days, especially when it comes to car-buying. Ever since pre-owned cars were first sold, buyers have developed myths about their reliability that simply aren't true.
Today, we're taking a look at three of the most common myths about pre-owned Buick and GMC vehicles and why they shouldn't be believed.
Myth #1: Pre-Owned Cars are Less Reliable
Many people balk at buying a pre-owned model because they think it won’t be reliable. These days, cars are built to last. As long as a vehicle is given the maintenance it needs, there’s no reason why it won’t be able to last for a very long time. Most cars can easily go past 100,000 miles, and many can make it up to 200,000 miles and beyond.
Myth #2: Pre-Owned Models Come with Unpleasant Surprises
It’s always a little risky not buying new, particularly when it's a big purchase. But with a pre-owned or certified pre-owned car, you can always know what you are getting.
When you look at the vehicle history report, you will get an excellent idea of how the car was cared for, as it includes service and repair information.
Myth #3: Pre-Owned Vehicles Don’t Come with Advanced Features
While it’s true that new cars come with state-of-the-art amenities, pre-owned vehicles rarely lack in this department. A car that is only a couple years old may still have an advanced infotainment touchscreen, smartphone connectivity, and innovative safety components, so you're still getting the same premium features normally reserved for new models.
