How would you buy a car: used or new? | The Tylt
Cars mean so much more than just transportation. Aside from being a status symbol for some (OK, you drive a Tesla, we get it), cars are symbols of freedom—driving the open road, discovering new places, rolling up to the McDonald’s drive-thru at four in the morning. The question of how you obtain your freedom is based upon whether you buy a used car for the cheaper price, or a brand-new set of wheels for its, well, newness. Which would you do?

Jalopies need some love, too. Even though the official definition of “jalopy” is a “decrepit car” (harsh, Wikipedia), buying a car that’s already been driven has a lot of benefits. For one thing, you can get it at a price that won’t have you living out of it. For another, it’s like getting the car with the most experience and stories. It’s (Iiterally) been around the block a couple of times; it knows what it’s doing.
People buy old clothes from thrift stores. Why not buy an old car from the lot? Plus, you can probably put all those old CDs you’ve kept in there.
If you buy used, you’re only going to have a car for a couple of years. Get a new car, however, and that thing’s going to last you a while. There’s so much more you can do with a new car—make it entirely yours, drive those first few miles, smell that sweet, sweet fresh leather smell for months. The world is your oyster, baby, take a spin around it.
Additionally, if you buy new as opposed to used, you don’t have to worry about any unforeseen problems that comes with a car’s age. Either way, drive safely, folks.
