Advantages of Buying a Pre-Owned Vehicle

At Texas Auto Center, we know a thing or two about high-quality pre-owned vehicles. With two Central Texas used car dealerships and many years of experience, we consider ourselves pre-owned experts. One thing you may not know is that there are actually several advantages to buying a used vehicle over a new one. We’ve put together a handy list of some of the top reasons why buying second-hand should be your first choice!

This may seem obvious, but used vehicles cost less than new ones. Price is always a factor when shopping for a vehicle, and if you go used you can get a lot more car for your money. Where you might only be able to afford a new sedan, you could probably get a pre-owned SUV for the same price.

This gives you a lot more freedom to find exactly what you want, instead of just what you can afford. At Texas Auto Center, we have plenty of easily affordable used cars, trucks, and SUVs waiting for you.


In general, used cars hold their value much better than new ones. New cars can lose as much as 50% of their value in the first year. Used cars have already taken this hit, and depreciate at a much slower rate, so your investment holds up longer. If you’re looking to trade up, check out our online Trade In Center and get your current car valued today!

More Choice

There are only so many different models of new cars produced each year, and several decades of models no longer in production available in the pre-owned market. If you’re interested in an out-of-production model such as a Honda Element or a Nissan Juke, you have to buy used.

Now that you can see that a used buy is a better buy, come visit us at Texas Auto Center! We have two pre-owned dealership locations serving Austin, San Marcos, Round Rock, Buda, Kyle, Georgetown, Pflugerville, Dripping Springs, Manor, and Cedar Park!
