Buying a new car provides a sense of accomplishment and great personal satisfaction. However, when you buy a second-hand or used car for sales in New Zealand you will be able to access the car of your dreams, which would not be within your financial reach as new. Less devaluation - When opting for a used vehicle you will no longer have that heartache when you know that as soon as your car left the stand it is worth significantly less than its initial value. The most significant devaluation of a car occurs in the first 3 years, after which its value decreases more slowly. Ever bought a used car before?

Me? I have only ever bought used, mostly MB ‘73 220D (still have it with 440k miles now), ‘84 300D (donated it to charity at 300k miles), ‘88 300SEL (still have it - 145k miles), ‘91 300TE (totaled in a fairly minor accident - I’m still angry about that many years later)

There was a Toyota, Volvo wagon, and a VW Bug way back on the list too but I have always preferred the Mercedes.

I think the most I ever paid for a car was $4,000 (US) that’s not to say they were all road worthy at that price - the 300SEL particularly had a significant amount of deferred maintenance - all of the rubber alignment bits, shocks, tires, breaks, break lines (and the most interesting problem where the coolant was leaking into the windshield washer reservoir) - 3500 to buy and almost 4,000 to repair. But now it’s my daily driver and lovely to drive.

I have stopped buying “new” and going pre-owned for the last two car purchases. The latest an MB GLA 250 4matic. A 2019 with 6,123 miles.

I don't have any opinions. Anyway, it's just that the transport tools can be driven. What's more, the cost-effectiveness of second-hand cars is really high. When I buy a used car, I often worry about two problems. One is how much the car costs. The other is whether there is any problem with the quality of the car, because I don't know the car very well. Like myself, I bought a second-hand Toyota Vios before. I think it's not bad and there's no big problem.
