Should You Buy Used or New from Steve Austin’s Auto Group?

Used Cars | Bellefontaine, OH

The question of buying used or new is a familiar one for many drivers. Is it better to purchase a shiny, freshly assembled vehicle with the latest tech, or a used vehicle that costs you less? The answer to this question will differ for each driver, so we’ve assembled the top benefits of used and new vehicles to help you determine which option best fits your wants and lifestyle.

Buying Used

The biggest perk of buying a used vehicle is the money you’ll save. Even if the pre-owned vehicle you’re eyeing is from a more recent model year, it will still have a much more affordable price than it did when new. Another positive is the vehicle’s resale value. If you choose to sell your used vehicle after a few years of ownership, the resale value will likely be close to the amount you initially paid to own it.

Buying New

By purchasing a new vehicle, you can enjoy a number of fantastic benefits. First, you’ll have access to the latest technologies and conveniences, which can help you stay connected and comfortable on the road. Shopping for a factory-fresh vehicle also means you don’t have to worry about its condition or age, and you have a wide variety of financing options to choose from.

If you’re in the market for a used or new ride, give us a call at Steve Austin’s Auto Group in Bellefontaine, Ohio, to learn about the current options in our inventory.

Corvette Stingray Earns the Title of 2020 North American Car of the Year

The new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray recently received the prestigious 2020 North American Car of the Year award. A jury made up of 50 independent journalists gave this award to the car for having a powerful performance and sophisticated design.

The North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year Awards recognize the vehicles that exceed in the areas of design, innovation, performance, safety, technology, value and driver satisfaction. The Corvette has now won the North American Car of the Year award three times, having previously received the honor in 1998 for its fifth-generation model and in 2014 for its seventh generation model.

The 2020 mid-engine Corvette is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine, which achieves 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. You can also opt for the Z51 Performance Package to optimize performance and enjoy smooth rides.
