Why Drive a Used Car When You Could Buy New?

A lot of drivers in Louisville, Elizabethtown, and Clarksville know that when it’s time to buy a car, going used is the less expensive route to take. However, that’s not always true, because down the road, a used car could end up costing you more than a new car, especially if it’s a Kia.

At the Kia Store, while we do have plenty of used cars at our dealership, we’re always happy to help drivers find a new Kia for sale that they can take home. Here’s a few reasons why you should buy a new Kia instead of driving used:

The Quality of a New Kia

These models offer some impressive performance and efficiencies, a stylish and comfortable cabin, and some sophisticated features and technology that you may not find in your top used car choices.

On top of the latest features and technology, Kia models have earned some impressive accolades over the years, including the J.D. Power award for “Highest Ranked Mass Market Brand in Initial Quality” four years in a row! Kia even has a number of vehicles to be awarded the 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK & 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, more than any other automotive brand on the market.

Backed By Kia Warranties

While used cars do come with a few select warranties for moderate coverage, Kia models include a variety of helpful new Kia warranties to assist you throughout your ownership. The Kia 10-year/100,000-mile warranty program consists of several warranties, including:

  • 10-year/100,000-mile limited powertrain warranty.
  • 5-year/60,000-mile limited basic warranty.
  • 5-year/100,000-mile limited anti-perforation warranty.
  • 5-year/60,000-mile roadside assistance plan.

All these warranties will help you ensure that your new Kia stays in great shape throughout the years.

Why Buying New Makes Sense with a Kia

But, considering that used cars don’t come with plentiful warranties, or the known quality of Kia models, the cheaper upfront costs may add up over time. Used cars are later in their lifespan, and require important service and maintenance to keep them running on the road. Not only have new Kia models not endured the miles that used cars have, but the Kia models include all the new features and technology that help improve the overall driving experience.
