Want to Know Why so Many Virginian Drivers are Choosing Used Cars These Days?

At Motor Mile Ford, we've been a mainstay of the Christiansburg, VA car sales business for quite some time now. Now, in all our time serving drivers from Salem to Roanoke, VA, we've seen some dramatic shifts. Car sales has gone from kicking tires on the lot to shopping online, and the vehicles we sell have become more advanced and sophisticated with each passing year. However, perhaps the biggest change in the auto market we're seeing these days is that used cars are a more attractive option than ever before.

If you're looking to save money, a used car is always a smart bet. It should go without saying that used cars have lower sticker prices than new models. However, what some driver's don't realize is that used cars aren't just cheaper to purchase, they're typically cheaper to own to boot.

In many cases, it's cheaper to insure a used car than it is a new one, which makes a used car ideal for college students at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, VA who're looking to keep their monthly expenses to a minimum.

Of course, one of the reasons to shop used that our customers from Radford and Floyd, VA find most appealing is the fact that it affords the opportunity to buy a much more well-equipped car. 

Now, we understand that many Montgomery County, VA drivers, reliability is of the utmost importance, and there's often a stigma that used cars are unreliable. However, these days nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, with a little regular maintenance and care from our team here at the Motor Mile Ford service center, you'll find it's easy and affordable to keep your used car of choice running well for years to come.

Why should I buy a used car from Motor Mile Ford?

We often field this question from prospective customers here at our Christiansburg, VA dealership, and there are any number of great answers to it, so let's get the obvious ones out of the way first.

In addition, choosing a used car is often a smart bet for drivers who don't want to make a long-term commitment to one specific model. This is due in part to the fact that used cars depreciate in value at a much slower and less drastic rate than a new car. When you buy a new car, it can lose up to 10 percent of its value the moment you drive it off the lot. However, when you choose a used car at our Christiansburg, VA dealership, you'll often find that you can recoup much more of its initial cost when you want to sell it a few years down the road.

At our dealership, we host a wide-variety of exceptional used cars, ranging from popular used Ford models like the Ford F-150, Ford Explorer, and Ford Focus, to attractive luxury cars from other popular brands, so you'll have a wide array of models equipped with premium amenities like leather seating, power-operated accessories, and even high-quality sound systems to choose from.
