Why Buy Used Macon

Buying a car is a big decision.  There are a ton of choices along the way that make up your new car like color, style, and gas mileage.  The first question is always ?Used or New? 

Both options definitely have their benefits, but here are some of the reasons why buying used might be the right choice for you!


Money is always a factor.  Does the cost of the new purchase warrant the use and dependability of the product?  You are definitely going to get a lot of use out of your car, so that answers that part of the question.  Now onto the money side; when you buy used, you are going to pay less money than you would for the same make and model new.  And the new model is going to depreciate in value as soon as it leaves the lot.

If you set out with a certain amount of money, x dollars, you can apply that money in 1 of 2 ways.  The 1st option is to get the highest new model that you can.  The 2nd option is to buy used and get a higher trim than you could afford new.


A new car has never been driven around the block.  It is always very exciting to know that you are the first person to drive the car and that there is not any wear and tear.

On the other hand, a used car has been driven.  That means that a lot of the kinks or issues in the car would have been detected by the previous owner and repaired.

Certified Pre-Owned

Certified pre-owned is a great program that tests and examines a used car to make sure that it is of the highest value.  Only if a car passes the test can it wear the name certified pre-owned.  With Ford, this testing includes a 172 point inspection.  Ford offers some good benefits to buying certified pre-owned including limited warranty coverage, history report, value of ownership, and 24-hour roadside assistance.
