New VS Used Cars
Choosing a new car can be a difficult process. With an abundance of different makes, models and engine sizes available it can be hard to choose the best one for you. Here at AP Autocare, we have many years experience in advising people on which car is best for them and their needs. From individuals needing a small, economical car to large families looking for comfort. If you’d like to have a chat with one of our friendly team about the used cars Bedminster that we stock, please call 0117 963 8916 or book online here.
Why Choose Used?
Choosing a used car doesn’t always mean you’re buying a run down car that is at the end of its life or requires a lot of expensive repairs. At AP Autocare, our used cars Bedminster are all serviced and have all been looked after well. This means you can guarantee you’ll purchase a reliable car that you can be sure will last you for many years. We also provide you with a 12 months MOT and 3 months breakdown cover to go with your new used car.
Another benefit of choosing a used car over a brand new car is the value. A used car supplied by AP Autocare is in almost new condition but at a fraction of the price. Why spend over £50,000 for a car when you can get almost identical for under £20,000?
With car manufacturers looking at new methods to improve our safety when travelling in a car or being around cars, the risks that vehicles pose now has been reduced. In this case, purchasing a new car wins over a used car. However, we aren’t saying that a used car will be a danger when driven on the roads but new technologies on new vehicles, such as pedestrian detection and blind spot warning now mean that newer cars are less likely to be a danger. Cameras and audible warnings can alert drivers of potential dangers around them to make them more aware when travelling.
Protecting the environment has become a top priority for government and consumers, with petrol cars being prioritised over diesel cars due to their lower emissions. So surely new cars must have lower emissions with this becoming so important in recent years? Not necessarily. A few years ago, some of the larger car manufacturers Volkswagen, Mercedes and others were caught by International Council on Clean Transportation for producing diesel engined vehicles with higher than reported emissions. This meant that a huge number of people that bought these new cars in the hopes of having lower emissions were actually doing the opposite. If those people had bought a used car such as the Peugeot 107, which has been tested and proven to have considerably low emissions, they would have been doing good by the environment and for their bank account!
When you purchase a new car, you want to have that new car smell and be able to guarantee that it will provide you with the performance that you require. This is why many people choose a new car. It hasn’t ever been driven before so is less likely to break. However, when purchasing a used car, you are also able to guarantee this. Here at AP Autocare, each car that we receive at our used car sales Bedminster dealership is checked over by one of our highly trained car mechanics. We also perform any repairs and give each vehicle a thorough clean through, including the engine, interior and exterior. This means that each of the vehicles we sell is practically a new car but at a much lower price. We also include each vehicle with a 12 month MOT and 3 months breakdown cover for peace of mind.
Choosing the Perfect Used Car
When choosing your new car, the different makes and models with their confusing specifications can be confusing. You just want a car that will get you from A to B at a reasonable price and that doesn’t need constant repairs. We understand this. However, we also understand that you might want a car that can also get you and your whole family from A to B safely or a car that gets you from A to B AND get heads to turn when you drive past. Our experienced and knowledgeable team are available in our garage to advise you on which car would be best for you and your requirements.
