At Mountaineer Mitsubishi, we have a range of and models for you to choose from. It’s easy to feel torn about which type of vehicle to go with. We’ve rounded up some key benefits of each to help you make the best decision for you.
Advantages of used
Even though Mitsubishi models are known for their affordable prices, you can save even more on your new Mitsubishi when you go with a pre-owned model. And because older autos are typically cheaper to insure, you’ll save even more money when you bring it home.
Another reason to go with a pre-owned ride is that it will depreciate at a slower rate than a new model. New models can lose 20 percent or more of its value within the first year of ownership. By contrast, some used models have a depreciation rate in the 9-12 percent range, after the first year of ownership.
It can also be easier to get approved to finance a used vehicle rather than a pricier new one, especially if your credit score is low. If you can’t afford putting down a large down payment on a newer model, a used one is a more budget-friendly way to go.
Advantages of new
A major perk of buying a new ride is getting comprehensive warranties that cover major repairs like the engine, braking system, and transmission. Some of these warranties come with roadside assistance, to further ease your mind as you rack up the first miles on your vehicle.
When you go with a new vehicle, you also get the latest tech features and are able to customize it the way you want. For instance, a newer Mitsubishi model might have SiriusXM® radio and Apple CarPlay® capability or an available head-up display, while older model years will lack these progressive features. You can also order a new Mitsubishi with the exterior paint color and interior upholstery options you want.
