Budgets are limited across the UK, and many people are still tightening their belts to save money. People now have a smaller budget when buying a car. Buying a used car is the cheaper alternative to buying a new car. So with this in mind, we’ve compiled a guide to why a used car can be just as good as a new one.

We all know the cliché – a new car loses half of its value as soon as you drive it off the showroom floor. Well, some clichés are true, and this one is as true as ever. But as a used car buyer you can benefit from this. Not all used cars are old bangers; some are nearly new. Schemes like Hertz Rent2Buy specialise in used cars for sale that are less than 24 months old, meaning you can take advantage of the cheaper price but still enjoy the manufacturer’s warranty in many cases. This represents excellent value for used cars in London and further afield.

By the same token, a good used car is tried and tested. Tired of being a guinea pig for design faults and electrical issues that have made it through the testing process in manufacturing? Get a used car that has already been put through its paces, and had any inherent faults fixed already. One advantage of a used car can be that even though it is used, you know it’s a good car to have been running for as long as it has. Similarly, some cars that were classic models and will run and run (Volkswagen Golf Diesel springs to mind) can only be bought as used. A lot of the time finding one with a low mileage can be a really good investment, and a money saver.
