Sure, it would be nice to always be able to buy a new car – to have that brand new shine that will turn heads. But often times circumstances and budget demand makes going with a used car more financial sense. Not to worry though. If you are in the market for a used Cadillac, you can still get the luxury of the Cadillac brand at an affordable price without having to sacrifice style for cost. Let’s take a look at why buying a used Cadillac from Frank Kent Cadillac provides both a good investment and a good value.

Cost Savings

The number one reason to go with a used Cadillac over a new model is the lower price. Sometimes the price difference between the two can be substantial enough that drivers are unable to step up to a new model. But with the Cadillac brand, you don’t have to choose between luxury and affordability. You can still get the same high-quality vehicles that Cadillac is known for even if they are a few years old.

However, the simple cost of the vehicle itself isn’t the only factor to consider. With a used Cadillac, the financing will be far less as will the depreciation and insurance. This all adds up to big savings for you. With a new car, it depreciates fairly quickly soon after you buy it, but with a used car, that depreciation has already happened under another owner before it gets to you. This is where researching and budgeting for a used Cadillac can be less stressful and more enjoyable than looking for a new one. Your budget may only allow for an entry-level base model if new, but since your considering used, you may be able to move up a trim level to a vehicle that is better equipped and still keep it within your budget.

All in all, buying a used Cadillac can save you hundreds of dollars in the end and will ultimately be a wise investment. When you go with a Cadillac, you are getting quality which is unmatched by any other auto manufacturer.

Certified Pre-Owned Cadillacs

In all honesty, there’s often a misconception around used cars. Many believe that they are not dependable or reliable, or they were turned in or bought by the dealership because they were riddled with problems. Others believe you have to skimp on quality or features with a used car. None of these things could be further from the truth. To truly settle the discriminating driver’s mind, going with a certified pre-owned (CPO) Cadillac is a good option. CPO vehicles are typically newer year models with fewer miles, perfect for the buyer looking for an almost new Cadillac without the new vehicle price tag.

Every single CPO Cadillac model we sell comes full assurance that it has been put through a rigorous 172-point inspection process by certified technicians. Every single aspect of the car is inspected thoroughly, from top to bottom and from front to back, to ensure safety and reliability. As a customer, knowing that the Cadillac you have your eye on has been checked over by a trained professional can go a long way. You know you’ll be getting a luxury car that will be reliable and retain its value for years to come.

CPO vehicles are also evidence of a change in how modern automobiles are perceived. Cars tend to last much longer these days, with the old 100,000 mile mark not necessarily meaning the end of life.

CPO buyers who are qualified also get special financing rates and terms, and through our CPO program, you get complimentary courtesy transportation for the length of your warranty period, a three month trial of SiriusXM Satellite Radio, and 5,000 points if you enroll to become a My Cadillac Rewards member. We think those are all pretty fantastic perks for choosing a used Cadillac!
