If you're a Lexington, Louisville, or Florence, Kentucky driver considering various options for your next car, we here at Quantrell Subaru would like to provide you with a brief explanation of some of the differences between buying a used car and buying a certified pre-owned car.

If you have any questions while you're reading along, don't hesitate to reach out to our team. Whether you send us an email, give us a call, or pay us a visit, we'll be able to get each of those answered for you. Until then, read through the following information that's intended to clarify these two car buying options.

Key Advantages of Buying a Used Car

One particular pro on the side of choosing to buy a used car would be that you might be able to get a lower rate in terms of insurance.

Another benefit would be the fact that, if a used car is a little older, it has been on the market for a longer period of time than a car that is new or certified pre-owned. This might allow you to gather knowledge about aspects of the vehicle's operation that may not be available for a newer car.

Why Buying Certified Pre-Owned can be Beneficial

Going this route will provide you with a few more reassurances such as the 152-point inspection and reconditioning that all certified pre-owned vehicles must receive before being displayed on the lot for your consideration. On top of that, there's the CARFAX Vehicle History Report™, the 24/7 Roadside Assistance, and 7-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty plan.

One-on-One Financing Assistance

No matter which option you end up choosing, you can expect to receive an abundance of support from the folks that you'll be meeting up with in the finance department. These specialists will take the time to sit down with you and walk you through each step of the process. They'll supply you with detailed information as well as answers to any questions you might have along the way.

This kind of support begins long before you even step foot into our offices. While you're preparing for your time with us, you're encouraged to take advantage of the various resources that we've provided for you online that include the Value Your Trade tool and the finance application.

The Value Your Trade tool is there to help you make sure you have an accurate understanding what your current vehicle is worth in the event that you're planning on trading it in. When you fill out the online finance application prior to your visit, you're giving yourself a head start in terms of acquiring credit approval.
