    The Pitfalls of Buying New Luxury

    Last updated 5 days ago

    Many people dream of owning an exceptional luxury vehicle. However, going out and buying the newest model of your favorite car is not always the best idea. There are several reasons why smart car owners know that luxury used cars are the best option. Pre-owned luxury cars offer the many advantages of owning top-of-the-line vehicles without the risks of buying new. These pitfalls include:


    Instant Depreciation

    When you buy a new vehicle, it can lose up to 10% of its value the minute you drive it off the lot; and because luxury cars run in a high price range, buying new means losing tens of thousands of dollars immediately after your purchase. Fortunately, luxury used vehicles do a better job of maintaining their value as they do not depreciate quite as much after purchase.


    Unknown Popularity and Style

    Luxury car companies take risks every year with cutting-edge designs and models. Unfortunately, not all of these styles are popular amongst car owners. When you buy new, you may end up with a style that will never be popular. This means lower trade-in value for your car, plus the embarrassment of driving an unpopular vehicle. Luxury used cars allow you to find top models that have stood the test of time.


    Untested Designs and Models

    Every year, car companies encounter design flaws and vehicle issues that weren’t expected. Sometimes these flaws are minor, while other times they cause serious mechanical or electrical defects. By buying a used luxury car, you can ensure that you are choosing a make and model that has already proven its reliability and value.

    • When I begin the search for my next car, I know every detail about exactly for what I'm looking. The make and model are the easy part of my search. The details are not always so easy. Finding the right colors inside and out, with all the "bells and whistles" that make up my special dream car, usually makes for a long, grueling... More

I searched their current and incoming inventory online, found the vehicle I wanted, called Kyle about it and asked a few questions.

    • I've known Pete since about 1990 and have nothing but respect for him and his way of doing business. I consider him a friend as much as a I do a dealer. I have purchased 3 vehicles from him for myself and my family. All three were bought sight unseen. I've never had an ounce of trouble with any of them and am still driving my Avalanche. Keep...
