Used Cars, Trucks, and SUVs for Sale Near Schenectady and Albany, NY

If you think buying used means sacrificing quality and style, it's time to reconsider. These days, buying used has taken on new meaning as auto manufacturers are building vehicles that are trendier, classier, and more durable. With quality high on the priority list in today's motor industry, you can buy used with confidence, now more than ever.

If you're someone who is looking for that new car look with a used car price tag, then our line up at Ford of Latham in the Troy, NY area is the way to go. We've got plenty of gently used Ford models available for your viewing pleasure along with other brands including Chevy, Nissan, Jeep, and more.

But many drivers in Clifton Park and Latham may be wondering if it's worth it to buy used in the first place. It may surprise you to know that there are countless benefits attached to buying used.

You Can Avoid Steep Depreciation

When driving a new car off the lot, it instantly depreciates in value. This can be annoying, but for many, driving the shiny new car of their dreams is worth it. For others, however, it's comforting to know that the car they just purchased did the majority of its depreciation before it came to them. While all cars generally begin to depreciate over time, you can breathe easy knowing that the cost of the used car you bought will take longer to lose its value.

Get a Used Car Warranty in Schenectady

Many used cars come with warranties attached. Some still have their original warranty while others may offer new ones. Whatever the case, you may be able to take advantage of coverage for certain repairs through a warranty even up to 100,000 miles or more.

Higher Quality at a Lower Cost

As previously mentioned, vehicles nowadays are built for quality and endurance. As such, they are more likely to look great, perform great and have all the same awesome features of newer vehicles but at a much lower price point.

Fewer Fees for Clifton Park Shoppers

Often times there can be necessary fees that come along with the purchase of a new vehicle. While there can also be an occasional fee or two attached to used cars, the general consensus is that there aren't as many fees involved in the process as buying new.

Financing Available for Used Vehicles in Latham

Now that you know the benefits of buying used, you may be wondering about making payments. Although used cars have much lower price points than their brand spanking new counterparts, sometimes the cost of a used car isn't something you can pay outright. But thanks to the financing department at Ford of Latham, you don't have to.

Before checking out financing options, you're going to want to make sure you've got your ducks in a row. Know your credit score ahead of time and stay within your budget. It's easy to splurge, even when buying used, but doing so won't be of any benefit if you aren't able to afford it in the long run.
