    Which is better...buying a used car or a new car?

    Personally, for me I'd much rather buy a new car.  Why?  You have the usual 100,000 mile warranty that goes with a new car.  Sometimes more rarely less. 

    If you have problems with the car and the dealer refuses to help you, the manufacturer is 'Johnny on the Spot' with help.  They will over ride any dealer on repairs that need to be made.  They will also work as a go between with you and the dealer.  if the dealer still gives you problems the manufacturer can and sometimes will pull their license to sell tat make of vehicles.

    I'm not sure what make of car your looking for but i can tell you from dealing with them in the past The Ford Motor Company is a GREAT company for fixing issues.  I have not had to call the other manufacturers.  It's always been the problems with the dealers who sold the vehicles.  FMC has stepped in to intervene.  That particular dealership no longer is a Ford Dealership.

    You can still make deals when purchasing a new vehicle.  But whatever you do GET IT IN WRITING!!!

    Do I sound like a broken record here?  All the rest still applies... 

    Best of Luck in your search!

    Used. Without a doubt. The old saying was that you lose $1,000 in value on the car as soon as you drive it off the lot. Even if you drove 100 feet and took it right back they wouldn't give you what you paid for it. That's not exactly true anymore. That number has been steadily increasing over time, especially with the downturn in the economy. Now the car depreciates several thousand dollars by the time you get it home.

    Most people that do buy new do so for the warranty. Take it from a mechanic, cars are designed to slightly outlast the warranty before they start needing work/repairs. I can't tell you how many people have come into the shop complaining that they are only a few hundred or a thousand miles out of warranty and they're having problems. So if you're buying new just for the warranty you're wasting a lot of money.

    The extra money that you would spend buying a new car versus a used car could go into savings, and when the time comes (which it inevitably will for any car) to do repairs you'll have the money to repair it.

    Of course everyone loves the new car smell and all of the new gadgets and features that are available today, most just aren't worth paying that much more for.

    I think if you have the opportunity to buy a new car then it will be a wrong decision to buy the used. Because used car create problems after buying. It will make you fully mad if you buy a used car without checking several time.

    If you can afford it of course you might as well go for a brand new car. This is way easier to insure. Some dealership would even throw in the insurance as part of the deal for the purchase. Another thing is that you would not have to worry about the history of the car because you are the one who is going to break it in.

    As per my opinion you should buy new car instead of used car. I always prefer to buy new cars  and scrap my old car with Scrap Car Comparison(www.scrapcarcomparison.co.uk) in the UK and they offer me a good cash for scrapping my used car.

    According to my opinion you have to buy a new car. I had an old car so I had scrapped my old for cash to the "SpeedyScrapCar". And they were given me the best price for my car. Then last month I bought a new car. So to buy a new car is better than the old car.

    I truly never found anything better than used cars. Before I had one, I used to have a lot of "what ifs". It's a matter of planning, budgeting, and choosing the right car dealer or seller to trust.

    If you ask me i would prefer a used auto over a new one. For the obvious reasons that are:

    1) It costs less for the start,
    2) You can drive car free in a used car than a new one for the fear of touch-ups,
    3) If you are a new driver, a used car is best for you as it gets you the freedom to drive with it around the city without the fear of accidents, dents & minor issues.
    4) You can learn to take care of a vehicle more efficiently if you've at one point in time kept a used car as it gives you enough experience on how to better take care of your vehicle.
    5) Last but not the least, well-maintained used cars can sometimes perform better than your new car & can save you tons of dollar in the meantime.

    In the end, it is solely upto you that how you want to use your car & do you really want a new vehicle or a well-maintained used one.

    If anyone is interested in buying a well-maintained used vehicle they can contact on: Www.padelamotors.com. They also offer automobiles at 0% interest rate and 0% down payment. THEY LITERALLY FINANCE EVERYONE REGARDLESS OF CREDIT. THEY ARE THE BANK SO YOU ARE APPROVED EVERY TIME!

    I hope this helps you make up your mind.
