Why Buy a New Vehicle?

 

When you're shopping for a vehicle, you may be comparing multiple options, including new versus pre-owned models. Although there are certainly pros to both categories, buying a new car has some unique advantages that make it more appealing to many people. At Huffines Chevrolet Plano, we can help you get behind the wheel of the new car of your dreams. Learn more about buying a new ride and why it's worth considering.

As mentioned, the benefits that come with buying a new car are extensive. We've outlined some of the top reasons to consider a new model below.

Choose the Features You Want

The first advantage is the opportunity to get exactly what you want. When you buy a pre-owned model, you're limited to what vehicles are available at the dealership when you start shopping. You could end up having to sacrifice some of the features you want. Buying new puts all the power in your hands. You can choose from multiple trim levels on most makes and models, ensuring that you get the features that are most important to you.

New Car Warranty

Another benefit of buying new is the warranty coverage that comes with the purchase. All automotive manufacturers offer at least some type of warranty on the new models in their respective lineups. At Huffines Chevrolet Plano, we sell new Chevrolet vehicles that include impressive warranty coverage. With a brand-new Chevy, you get:

  • A 3-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty.

  • A 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.

  • A free first maintenance visit within the first one year or 12,000 miles.

  • A four-wheel tire rotation (when applicable).

  • A multi-point vehicle inspection (when applicable).

Electric and hybrid models may also qualify for additional warranty coverage on specific components. Most hybrid and electric vehicles sold in the U.S. qualify for up to eight years or 100,000 miles of warranty coverage on the electric propulsion components.

Vehicles covered under the powertrain limited warranty or hybrid-specific warranty also qualify for roadside assistance offered through Chevrolet. It includes:

  • Emergency towing.

  • Flat tire change or tire inflator kit service.

  • Mobile EV charging (select markets).

  • Jumpstarts to service dead batteries.

  • Emergency fuel delivery.

  • Lockout service (when keys are locked inside the vehicle).

Chevrolet buyers may also be able to purchase extended warranty coverage or protection plans when buying a new vehicle.

No Concerns About Vehicle History

When you shop for a pre-owned car, you don't necessarily know about its history or whether it's been involved in any accidents. Although vehicle history reports can provide some insights, these don't always indicate whether components have been replaced and whether any work done on the vehicle was completed by an authorized professional. Buying a used car is a bit of a gamble, but buying a new car doesn't come with the same risk.

The odometer in the vehicle will show you how many miles it's driven, and that number is typically under 1,000 on a brand-new model. You also know that the model has spent most of its time at the dealership, so it hasn't been in an accident or owned and driven by anyone else. Aside from a few test drives, a new car likely hasn't spent much time on the road, so its pristine condition can give you peace of mind when you shop.

Updated Features

Newer models have newer features that aren't always available on older models. Many automotive manufacturers continue to increase the number of standard features on the new vehicles in their lineups. For example, if you buy a brand-new car, it might come standard with active driver aids that were only available on the highest trim levels on models that are a few years old. Some of the newer aids offered on vehicles include:

  • Forward and rear collision mitigation with automatic braking.

  • Blind-spot monitoring.

  • Rear cross-traffic alert.

  • Adaptive cruise control.

  • Head-up display (projects important information on the windshield in the driver's line of sight).

  • Parking sensors.

In addition to updated safety features, a new car may come with advanced equipment that wasn't available even just a few years ago. You can get upgraded audio systems with better sound quality, larger touch screens with modern infotainment systems, smartphone integration, and even comfort features like ventilated seats.

That New Car Smell

It's hard to put this advantage into words, but that new car smell is something that simply can't be beat. Climbing into the cabin and enjoying the new smell often makes the purchase worthwhile. Be sure to check out Chevy's Electric car lineup featuring the Chevy Bolt EV and EUV.
