Palatine residents who are interested in getting a different vehicle may want to consider pre-owned cars and SUVs rather than new ones. It has been proven that the car loses much of its value the moment it is driven off the lot, but some may lose more value than others. Regardless, a used Volvo has already depreciated, and you don’t have to worry about it losing much more of its value, which means you can drive it for a few years (or longer), and sell it or trade it in and get more for it (as long as it is well maintained).
Most carmakers don’t make significant changes for each model year, which means you can buy something a few years older and still have the same great technology and safety features of a newer car. Therefore, you can rest easy knowing that you’re safe while driving down the road and can enjoy your technology, such as infotainment systems with touchscreens.
Hundreds of Choices
Dealerships usually have full lots filled with both new and pre-owned cars. In most cases, the line of used cars is less because the dealer tries to promote new-car sales. However, you can still find many choices that are well within your budget and have options or features that you desire. If you can’t find what you want, you may want to ask a salesperson; they are likely to be able to get what you need.
Dealerships always have service centers where you can get repairs and scheduled maintenance. Sometimes, it is easier to go to the dealer for service because the people there already know you and your car.
While most pre-owned cars come as-is, you can usually request an extended warranty; it does cost extra, but it can give you added peace of mind.
