When you buy a new car, there's a high probability that you'll be able to customize it the way you want or have us find and deliver the car that includes the options you desire. Every new car comes with a warranty that doesn't require you to pay extra for it. Another upside to buying new is not having to worry about possible accident history and questionable past ownership. You'll also get the latest gadgets and safety features available on the market. If you need financing, newer cars always get lower rates because they are worth more. Scheduled maintenance also comes included for a certain time and mileage which means you'll spend less on car upkeep.

The biggest advantage to buying a preowned car is the price. A preowned car, whether it has had twenty previous owners or just one, is always going to cost less than something that has just rolled off the assembly line. All of our preowned cars are quality inspected and drive like new for used prices. Also, you'll avoid all those inconvenient new car fees. Another benefit to buying a preowned vehicle is that, unlike a new car, your car's value will not greatly depreciate as soon as it rolls off the lot. This means that your preowned car's price should remain about the same if and when you're ready to sell or trade. When it comes to insurance, the cost is generally lower for used cars due to the age and reputation. Lastly, when you buy a preowned car, you get a huge selection to choose from. It's likely that the car you want will have several different years and options available as opposed to new models.

Whether you choose to buy a new or preowned Smith Haven Mitsubishi car is up to you. Each option is a great investment. Check out our Long Island Mitsubishi Financing online page for more information!
