New Year, New (to You) Vehicle! – Frugal Novice

New Year, New (to You) Vehicle!

This is a sponsored post partnered with Butler Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. All opinions are honest and are my own.

The new year is just a few weeks away, and that means it’s a time of newness in many ways – new resolutions, and new starts… and it’s also a great time to get a new vehicle, because of all the sales that take place around the holidays.

In our house we’ve purchased both new and used vehicles, and I especially like getting used vehicles, because you can get a great deal. Obviously you can get great deals on new vehicles, too, but if you’re wanting, say, a car loaded with all sorts of extras (like a navigation system, leather seats, etc.), going with a used vehicle will let you get more for your money.

When you buy a used vehicle, you can typically also get better insurance rates, which is another way in which buying used can help you stretch your dollar. You’ll also find that there’s often a broader selection of types of vehicles when you’re buying used.

Of course, if you’re buying a used vehicle, there are things to consider that you wouldn’t have to think about with a new vehicle. Look at the condition of the vehicle (make sure you get a certified used vehicle and learn the history before buying) and mileage to make sure the value for what you’re spending is on point. Make sure that whether you’re buying new or used you do your research and make a good choice!
