Perks of Buying Used Cars in Lafayette, LA

Tired of your old ride and ready for something new (or new-to-you)? Giles Subaru is your home for all things automotive, whether you want to sell or trade in your old model, get high-quality service or find your next vehicle. We have an impressive lineup of new Subaru models here at our dealership, containing options like the sporty WRX, the spacious Ascent and the rugged Forester. However, if a used model sounds like it would better fit you and your budget, we have what you need! While we love new Subaru models, we don’t consider used models to be less desirable than new ones — in fact, there are many benefits to choosing a used vehicle, and we’ve listed just some of them below.

Why Should I Buy Used?

Greater Affordability

It’s a simple fact that used cars are usually less expensive than new ones, and if you’re shopping on a budget, a used model can be an excellent choice. You can choose to pay cash and avoid monthly payments altogether, or you can take out a small loan, make a down payment and then pay a little each month until you own the car in full. Plus, if you choose to buy used, you may have more wiggle room in your budget to find a model with all the features you’ve been dreaming of.

Slower Depreciation

A new model loses value as soon as it’s driven away from the dealership, but after one or two years, the depreciation levels out. Even though all vehicles are depreciating at different rates, if you choose a car that’s past the first major value drop, you’ll get more bang for your buck. Take a look at our used inventory to find a vehicle that’s a couple of years old, and you’ll get a great deal on a vehicle that’s at a point in its lifespan where it’s depreciating more slowly.

More Options

Every year, manufacturers release new models that are either fully redesigned or updated in various ways. While some buyers exclusively choose new cars because they contain the most cutting-edge technology and innovative features, others enjoy the options provided by buying used. You can upgrade to a used vehicle that is newer than your previous ride and still enjoy improved infotainment, seats, safety features and more — all while saving thousands by choosing a slightly older model. Plus, when you shop used, you can compare a variety of model years to find the exact body style and color you want.

There are plenty of perks when it comes to buying a used car, and we have a large selection of used cars, trucks and SUVs for you to choose from here at Giles Subaru.
