Life is made up of a series of choices. They may be simple ones, like choosing between watching the Gators play on TV and mowing the lawn (we think we know the answer to that one). Or perhaps choosing to go out to dinner or stay home and order pizza (that ultimate deep-dish pizza is looking awfully good, isn’t it?).
Making major choices that affect your finances, however, is an entirely different matter. One of the biggest choices that impact your budget is buying a car. The cost of owning a car is right up there with the purchase of a house. So choosing whether to purchase a new or used car is definitely an important decision that’s worth thinking seriously about.
When it comes to making tough decisions, it’s a wise idea to consult the experts. That’s where your friends here at Gainesville Buick GMC come in. As your preferred Buick GMC new car dealership near Gainesville, we’re ready to help you decide whether a new or used car is best for you.
We, therefore, put together this handy guide to understanding the pros and cons of a new or used car from our used car dealership near Ocala, FL. Because you do have choices when it comes to buying a car.
Benefits Of Buying A New Vehicle
- That “New Car Smell.”
A new car, like the beautiful new 2016 Buick Verano for sale near Gainesville at Gainesville Buick GMC, is exclusively yours and yours alone. You are the first person to own it and drive it. And that’s a pretty special feeling.
- The Assurance Of A New Car Warranty
When you buy a new vehicle, like the “Precision Grade” 2016 GMC Yukon for sale near Ocala at our Gainesville Buick GMC dealership, you’re getting our unbeatable 15-year/150,000-mile Limited Powertrain Warranty. Not only does it include a 3-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, but also 24-hour roadside assistance and courtesy transportation. We also offer this same outstanding warranty on our new 2016 Buicks, like the luxurious 2016 Buick Regal for sale near Gainesville.
- More Auto Financing Options
At Gainesville Buick GMC, we offer many different financing options for new car buyers, including low or no money down lease offers, like the ones you’ll find on our sporty new 2016 Buick LaCrosse. Low financing rates for well-qualified buyers make purchasing or leasing a new Buick or GMC an attractive proposition compared to buying a used car.
- New Features & Technologies
If you’re someone who rushes out to get the newest smartphone or digital gadget, then buying a new car may be especially appealing. The latest high-tech advancements such as Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, voice-activated functionality, SiriusXM® Radio, Bluetooth® Streaming Audio, and 4G LTE Wi-Fi that you find on vehicles such as the new 2017 GMC Acadia, are just some of the many new technology features you may not find on older model vehicles.
- You’ll Enjoy The Newest Safety Features
Automotive safety technology is light years ahead of where it used to be just 20 years ago. If safety is important to you, then driving a brand-new car with the latest safety features, such as the ones you’ll find on the new 2016 Buick Encore SUV, may be a primary reason why you’ll choose new over used.
- Improved Performance & Fuel Economy
When you lease or purchase a new GMC or Buick, you’re getting GM’s latest engineering innovations that offer improved performance, handling, and fuel economy. The 2016 GMC Sierra for sale near Gainesville, for example, gets an excellent EPA-estimated* 24 mpg on the highway with its Active Fuel Management system.
Benefits Of Purchasing A Pre-Owned Used Vehicle
- More Choices

You’ll also get more choices of top-quality GM-Certified Pre-owned vehicles for sale near Gainesville at our Buick GMC dealership.
- No New-Car Depreciation
The moment you drive a new car off the lot it loses value because it’s now a “used car.” But when you purchase a pre-owned vehicle from our Gainesville Buick GMC used car dealership, the original owner has already taken the depreciation “hit” for you.
- Less To Insure & Register
In most cases, used cars are less expensive to insure than new vehicles. It’s a good idea to select a pre-owned vehicle you’re interested in from our extensive used car inventory and then contact your auto insurance carrier to find out just how much you’ll save compared to buying a new car. Registration is generally less expensive for used cars as well.
- Not Cosmetically Perfect
Even the finest used Buicks and GMC trucks we sell here at Gainesville Buick GMC have minor imperfections. And that means someone else had to endure that first parking lot door ding, scratch, or upholstery stain. If a shopping cart on a collision course with your new car has you stressed out, then maybe buying a gently used car is the right choice for you.
- You’ll Save Money
It’s an obvious fact that used cars cost much less than new cars. If saving thousands of dollars compared to buying a new car is something that appeals to you and your wallet, then a top-quality pre-owned Buick or GMC truck may be the right choice. You can also have many of the benefits of a buying a new car without paying more by selecting from our large inventory of like-new GM-Certified Pre-owned vehicles. These immaculate pre-owned Buicks and GMC trucks must undergo a thorough reconditioning process to bring them to near new quality.
