These New Car Deals Will Make You Want To Trade In Your Car

Buying a new new is both a huge investment and a significant loss. A brand-new car loses its value immediately, wasting you tens of thousands of dollars the second it hits city streets. As Carfax reports, a newly purchased vehicle loses 10% of its value immediately upon purchase, and it loses an average of 15 to 25% of its value every single year you own it. Yet countless drivers choose new cars instead of used, opt to buy instead of lease–and that’s because in special circumstances, buying a new car could be the smartest choice.

Buying a new car could actually save you money. You just need to find the right deal–the kind of deal that makes trading in your current car worthwhile. Scoring a surprisingly low price on your new car purchase is a smarter financial choice than sticking with your old model.
