Having been Toms River, NJ Jeep® dealers for quite a while now, we can tell you that buying a brand-new vehicle like the 2018 Jeep Cherokee isn’t the right move for everyone. Sometimes, it simply makes more sense to purchase a previously owned vehicle. While you won’t get to enjoy that new car smell when you buy a pre-owned car, you will get to enjoy some pretty significant advantages when you purchase a previously owned vehicle instead of a new one.

If you shop at our Jeep dealership near Brick, NJ, you’ll be able to choose from among many pre-owned cars that include the Jeep Cherokee and many other popular models. You don’t just get great variety when you shop at our convenient location, you may be able to buy more car when you purchase a previously owned car from us.

Because pre-owned cars normally have a lower price tag than new automobiles, drivers can often step up to a higher trim or they can afford a vehicle that has more added features. Since previously owned vehicles typically cost less, they’re also normally cheaper to register and insure.

While all of the benefits mentioned above are great, the best advantage to buying a pre-owned vehicle is avoiding the rapid depreciation that occurs in the first year a car is owned. It’s not unusual for a new car to lose as much as 20 percent of its value when it’s driven away from a dealership by its first owner. It’s also not unheard of for a new car to lose an additional 10 percent of its value during the first 12 months it’s owned.

When you buy a pre-owned automobile, you won’t have to worry about this rapid depreciation because your car’s original owner will have already taken the hit. To learn more about the benefits of buying a pre-owned vehicle, visit Lester Glenn Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM FIAT today.
