Burt Watson Chevrolet: Home of the 24-hour Used Car Test Drive

Are you in the Freeland area and in the market for a used car? If not, after you read this, you may change your mind.

First, let's acknowledge the elephant in the room.

There has always been apprehension about buying used cars. There's the fear that it'll be unreliable or leave you stranded on the side of the road in Saginaw. But those days are gone. There are a few things in place to ensure you that a used car could very well be just as good as a new one-or even better.

There are a few benefits of buying a used car that generally go under the radar. One is the immediate access to vehicle history reports.

You'll know EXACTLY what you're getting into

Many vehicle history reports show you what happened to a used vehicle, when it happened and what repairs were done.

Why is that important? It eliminates the guesswork that comes with buying a new or used vehicle.

With vehicle history reports, you have all you need right at your fingertips. That way, you can make a well-informed decision before the purchase.

These cars keep going

The truth is that the used cars of today aren't your grandpa's used cars. What does that mean? Used cars of today last longer. Today, 100,000 miles is no longer the point of no return for used cars (not named Toyota or Honda). Many automakers designed vehicles to last well beyond that mileage. In fact, on average, vehicles are primed to last 11.6 years.

Additionally, most used cars come with warranties that cover major repairs. So, when testing out a used car, your risks are substantially less than what they were a decade ago. You hold all the cards in your hand-and we have a wide selection of used cars at your disposal.

You get more by paying less

The price gap in monthly payments for a new car vs. a used car is widening. So much so that you could probably afford to buy you or your spouse something nice and shiny with the difference alone. How does that sound?

Low insurance rates

The bottom line is that used cars cost less to insure. Why? Because generally, the parts used to repair older cars are less expensive. You're looking at lower premiums with used cars. And lower premiums mean keeping more of your hard-earned money in your pocket each month.

When factoring in the few hundred dollars and the cost of full-coverage insurance for a brand-new vehicle, it could flirt with the cost of a mortgage payment. Driving shouldn't be that expensive, and a used car could be a way to lighten the financial load.
