Buying a brand new car is a luxury for most people. In addition to mortgage payments and other monthly bills, the cost of buying a new car is often prohibitive. Financing a new car can be upwards of $500 a month, not including insurance, service, and repairs. Purchasing a used car might be a more affordable option, especially since the selection and reliability of older cars has improved significantly. Here are some benefits to buying used.


Buying a used car is less expensive than buying a new one. In fact, many consumers can step up to a nicer model at used car pricing. You will save a good amount of money buying a car that is just a year or two old compared to a brand new one. Your budget will dictate which makes and models are in your price range. You can always get an older model with higher mileage to save on the intial cost.


Finding a used car is now easier than ever before. You can simply search AAA Auto Buying's inventory to see what is available. Search by make, model, year, or price to find what you want. If you don't see what you are looking for, we will be happy to help you find it. With such a variety of vehicles in our inventory, you won't need to visit different dealerships.


With access at your fingertips, you can easily check the statistics of the car makes and models you're interested in purchasing. By looking at online reports, following internet forums, and talking to other owners of the vehicles, you will learn quite a bit about what to expect from the cars on your list. All used cars purchased from AAA Auto Buying have been thoroughly inspected by our ASE Certified Master Technicians to ensure the highest quality and performance.


You've probably heard that new cars depreciate after purchase. It's true. On average, you can expect your new car to decpreciate as much as 30% of its value in the first two years of ownership. With a used car, there is no immediate depreciation so you'll avoid the steepest decline. 


If you're buying a used vehicle, the manufacturer's warranty may have expired. Luckily, you can still protect your purchase with an extended warranty. AAA's Extended Warranty offers different coverage levels, and depending which you choose, you may be covered up to 7 years and 230,000 odometer miles. An extended warranty takes the worry away when buying a used car.


Used vehicles are typically less expensive to insure. AAA Insurance offers members competitve rates and exclusive discounts. Our expert agents will work hard to find you savings and get you what you need, no more and no less. With AAA Insurance, you can file a claim anytime and get same-day answers from our adjusters. Reach out to AAA Insurance for a quote on your used vehicle.

If you're in the market for a used car, reach out to AAA Auto Buying for a hassle-free experience. Our auto experts will walk you through the whole process from start to finish. We can even pick up your trade-in and deliver your new vehicle right to your front door. Call 1-866-710-6226 to learn more about AAA Auto Buying Service.
