At Patterson Nissan Longview, our mission is to provide you with the ultimate ownership experience so you can drive off our lot with confidence. We work hard to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision and we are well-equipped to take care of your servicing needs throughout your ownership of your used car. Buying your next vehicle used can not only save you money, but it can also prove to be a smart investment that will give you more for less in the long-term.
With our available inventory of Certified Pre-Owned models and our Lifetime Powertrain Warranty, there’s no need to have concerns when buying your next car used. At Patterson Nissan, our CPO vehicles are inspected top to bottom to ensure there are no issues with the powertrain/chassis, body frame, exterior, interior, and any other additional features. In addition to our rigorous inspections, all of our CPO models are less than six years old and have fewer than 80,000 miles. With prerequisites like these, you can be confident in your next used car purchase.
Additional features that are included with your used car purchase include:
We also have a Lifetime Powertrain Warranty that is offered with a majority of our used cars at no additional cost and includes:
On average, vehicles get a full redesign every four-to-six years with minor feature upgrades in between. Buying your car used doesn’t mean you have to miss out on innovative technology and enhanced driver assist features. By buying your next car used you can get a higher trim level with more features at a comparable price to an entry level model that only comes with a standard package. That towing package or premium interior package that would have squeezed your wallet too tightly in a new vehicle just became affordable with a used vehicle. In addition to saving on the initial cost and added features, you can also get lower car insurance premiums with used cars.
Not only is buying a used car beneficial for your bank account up front, but it also is a smart investment in the long run. Depreciation affects everyone who owns a car, but it doesn’t have the same impact on used car buyers as it does on those who purchase new cars. Depreciation rates show that a new car can lose 10% of its value in the first month of ownership and up to 20% in the first year. Over the next four years, your car can lose 10% of its value each year, resulting in your car valuing at less than half of what you paid for it after only five years. By purchasing a used vehicle that is only two or three years old, you can avoid the biggest depreciation hit new cars take and make a smart investment that will provide better returns if you ever trade-in or re-sell your used car.
With innovative technology and groundbreaking designs, vehicles are being built better than ever and are therefore more reliable. What used to only last 100,000 miles can now average 200,000 miles or more. By researching a model’s history, reading reviews, and using online vehicle history tools like Carfax, you can make a smart investment by finding a used vehicle with a proven track record and a reliable previous owner. In addition, you can take advantage of a lower mileage, thorough inspection, and future service benefits with our CPO models.
These are just a few reasons why you should consider buying a used car instead of a new car. Buying a used car is a smart investment that will give your more for less.
