Certified Used Fords For Sale at Sioux Falls Ford

When you prepare to buy a car, you may make the decision between getting a new or a certified pre-owned vehicle. Making this decision can affect your budget, the vehicles available, and the ways you pay for them. At Sioux Falls Ford Lincoln, we provide plenty of options for buying a new or pre-owned vehicle. Below is information for buying a certified pre-owned vehicle from us.

What's a Certified Pre-Owned Vehicle?

A certified pre-owned vehicle is a vehicle that's had a previous owner. These used vehicles are inspected by our team of professional technicians to ensure everything is in peak operating condition based on the vehicle's age and previous ancient history. When you choose to buy a certified pre-owned vehicle, you know that it's in the best condition possible because a multi-point inspection covers all the major systems of the vehicle. To learn more about the inspection process and certified pre-owned vehicles, you can speak to a professional team member from Sioux Falls Ford.

Advantages of Buying a Pre-Owned Vehicle

There are several advantages to buying a used vehicle, including having more information about the vehicle's performance compared to a brand-new car and knowing the vehicle's history. You can also know what accessories and features the car comes with, especially aftermarket features that a previous owner may add to the car before you purchase it. To learn more about the advantages of buying a certified pre-owned vehicle, read the sections below:

Save Money

A major advantage of buying a certified pre-owned car is that you can save a lot of money. New cars can be quite expensive, while a used car might be slightly older but still have similar performance values to the new models of the same vehicle. While the cost of each vehicle can vary based on several factors such as age, accident history, and damage to the vehicle, pre-owned vehicles are always less expensive than a new car. This is because the vehicle goes through a process called depreciation for its entire effective lifetime.

Minimize Depreciation

Depreciation is the rate at which assets, such as cars, lose value as they experience use, wear, and time. For cars, the largest amount of depreciation occurs during the first year after purchase. A vehicle can depreciate up to 30% of its value in the first year, but after that, the depreciation rate is relatively even for the rest of the vehicle's lifetime. This means that if you buy a new car for $30,000, then the car loses almost $9,000 of its value in the first year. 

If you buy a used car, especially a car beyond its first year of ownership, this value loss is much less. For example, if you buy a pre-owned vehicle for $24,000 you may only experience a 15% to 20% depreciation rate the year you purchase it. So for the $24,000 car, it may only lose $3,600 to $4,800 in value. This rate remains relatively the same for the rest of the car's functional lifetime, so it loses less and less value each year.

Find Financing Options

When you're prepared to buy a certified pre-owned car, Sioux Falls Ford Lincoln can help you find financing options to afford your car. These options can give you a variety of ways to pay for your new vehicle. For example, you can research different rates to pay for your vehicle, choosing between long-term lower rates, or short-term higher rates. These rates can also vary based on the initial down payment you place on the car. This is because putting a larger down payment, or initial payment on a vehicle can reduce the total value you owe, giving you lower rates.

At Sioux Falls Ford Lincoln, we have a team of professionals who can research different options for you. This allows you to find the best rates through the dealership, which means you can get the best rates possible for the area. Our combination of finance professionals and community connections ensures we have plenty of options from which you can choose.
