The Benefits of Buying a Used Car

July 14th, 2020 by

At Hawk Nissan of St. Charles, we offer over 700 different styles of used cars from a variety of brands. We have a large collection of Nissan Sentras in our St. Charles location, as well as many other Nissans, Fords, Toyotas and more! Many of our used cars can be found for under $10,000. Below is an outline of some of the reasons buying a used car is a great decision.

Save a Lot of Money Upfront

On average, used cars are priced 50 percent lower than new cars. This will allow you to pay off your car payment much faster, which will also help you save on financing fees. People switch out their old car at an average of every six years and if you are saving 50 percent every time, you’ll be able to save a substantial amount of money in your lifetime.

Lower Customization and Overhead Costs

If you want to upgrade a used car or fix a worn-out feature, the cost will be much lower than adding on or fixing a newer car. This can save you even more money!

Lower Insurance Premiums

Because a used car will cost an insurance company less money to fix if you get in an accident, your insurance premiums will generally be less than with a new car.

Used Car Certifications and History

All of Hawk Nissans St. Charles’ used cars have a Carfax report that details previous ownership information. This way you always know what you are getting and the car’s full history.

Environmental Factors

Purchasing a used car is better for the environment! Did you know almost a quarter of the carbon dioxide a car produces during its life cycle comes from the manufacturing process? This means you’d be forgoing the production of a new car by buying used!

Buying a used car can save you a lot of money and hassle. Hawk Nissan of St. Charles has a large array of used Nissan Sentras and much more. Visit our website or give us a call to learn more about our used cars offerings.
