Why Buy Used

So, you're deciding whether or not you should buy a new or used car. The real question is, why buy a new car when there are so many reliable and affordable older cars still on the market? Here at El Cajon Mitsubishi, we recognize the value in used cars, many of which are still as high-quality as the day they roll off the production line, but come at a fraction of the price. Here are some more reasons why buying a used car can be the right choice:

Value
Let’s start with what everyone already knows. Buying used can save you money on a car that would be a lot more expensive new. You can put that little extra in your pocket or even use it to upgrade your car! And that’s not all: when you buy used, you’ll also spend less on registration and insurance. Furthermore, used cars don’t lose as much value over time as new cars, which means you can get more back when you resell it years down the line.

Good Condition
These days, in an increasingly competitive market, manufacturers are creating cars that last a long, long time, so you can easily find many durable and reliable used cars that have withstood the wear and tear of a few years. More and more used cars these days come in great, like-new condition.

Choice
Some people think buying used limits your choices. At El Cajon Mitsubishi near San Diego, it’s just the opposite. We offer a large selection of pre-owned vehicles so that you can pick the model year, price, trim, features, and package you want. Buying used makes it easy to get the car that’s just perfect for you!

Certified Pre-Owned
Buying a Certified Pre-Owned vehicle comes with numerous advantageous guarantees. To become certified, each used vehicle goes through an exhaustive 123-point mechanical and appearance inspection. Every vehicle that’s certified is less than 5 years old and has less than 60,000 miles. Better yet, all of our certified vehicles come with that great Mitsubishi powertrain limited warranty. The vehicle will be covered for 10 years from its first date of use or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. Our warranty has no deductible for covered repairs. Mitsubishi’s warranty is one of the best in the automotive industry.​ 

Our used Mitsubishi vehicles aren't the only ones that get certified. Cars on our lot that are less than 5 years old with less than 60,000 miles go through a certification process. You can rest assured when you drive off the lot in one of our many used cars, knowing you've got one that's gone through a quality inspection.

Another plus to buying a certifed used car is that they tend to come with a lower Annual Percentage Rate (APR), which results in a lower payment for you. Your APR also depends on your credit score, but buying a certified pre-owned can help lower it.​ ​
