Should I Buy a New or Used Car?

Posted by Poquet Auto on May 8, 2018 7:15:00 AM

So, you need a new car. But you’re on the fence about new vs. used.

Maybe you’re looking for something reliable, with great safety features, but don’t want to splurge on something new that’s going to depreciate quickly.

Or maybe you’ve been dreaming about a luxury vehicle with an unbeatable driving experience, but want a price point that leaves you with room for one or two other luxuries, or necessities.

You don’t have to choose between price and quality. Pre-owned luxury dealerships give you the quality you want, at the price you need.

Here are three reasons buying a pre-owned luxury vehicle at Poquet makes sense.

1. Get the Best Value on Every Vehicle, Every Time

When is the best time to buy a car? A truck? A convertible?

At some car dealerships, the conventional wisdom is to shop on a Wednesday, because this will give you the biggest discount off the price. Some people say that winter is the best time to buy a vehicle. Still others insist that you should only shop for convertibles in the winter, and SUVs in the summer.

What does all of this advice have in common? The assumption that you’re shopping at a dealership that negotiates on prices.

The problem with these dealerships? Unless you’re an expert on cars, they often leave you, the buyer, at a disadvantage.

You need a car dealership that puts you in the driver’s seat. That’s why at Poquet, we’re committed to no-haggle pricing.

How does no-haggle pricing work? We find high-quality, one owner vehicles at great values, and pass those savings on to you. It's the basis of our model, and our great reputation

2. Get the Warranty that Works for You

Warranties are a great way to get protection and peace of mind when you make a big purchase.

For pre-owned luxury vehicles, the factory warranty may be about to expire. That’s where extended warranties come in. An extended warranty is a service contract that will cover the cost of certain repairs and services after the factory warranty expires. You’ll get the protection you need, even after the factory warranty is up.

Is an extended warranty right for you? That depends.

Some things to consider? How long you plan to keep the car, the car’s age, and what’s best for your peace of mind.

Here’s everything you need to know about extended warranties.

3. Simplify Your Buying Process

Buying a car should be “as simple as walking into Target to buy Kleenex.”

Really. We believe that.

And that’s what our customers say it’s like to buy a car here at Poquet Auto.

What makes us different?

In addition to our no-haggle pricing, we’re proud to employ a group of salespeople dedicated to customer service and satisfaction.

We know that good or bad salespeople can make or break your car-buying experience, and that the right salesperson can be a big help in finding the vehicle that meets your needs and your budget.

What’s our secret to great customer service? Here are 4 qualities to look for in a car salesperson.
