3 Reasons to Buy Used

Let’s be honest — buying used can have a spooky connotation. Everyone has heard used car horror stories of over-paying, non-stop maintenance, and lemons. Used cars have gotten a bad rap. In reality, shopping used can be a much better buying experience. Here are just a few reasons to buy used.

reasons to buy used

1. Higher Selection

The used car market is broad and diverse. Think of it this way: every car that is on the road — by virtue of it having been purchased and driven — is a used car. And as technology and engineering improve, cars stay on the road longer — deepening that already vast pool and improving choose for consumers. Rather than limiting yourself to the couple of hundred vehicles on a car lot, buying used opens up the marketplace and increases your odds of finding a perfect fit.

2. Lower Premiums

In many cases, car registration fees and insurance premiums are determined by car value. When you buy used, you’re saving money upfront and in the long run — since your car has lesser monetary value, there is less risk for insurance companies related to potential payouts, and you get charged less in premiums.

3. Value Buys

It’s amazing the difference a word makes. When a car is “used,” its market value is a fraction of its “new” sticker price. When a new car is driven off the lot, its value immediately depreciates by as much as 50%. As a used car shopper, you can find vehicles that are one and two years old featuring minimal wear and tear that are half the price of its new, un-driven counterparts on dealer lots. When shopping used, drivers can find excellent value buys on high-quality vehicles without breaking the bank.

Buying used is also a much less stressful process when you do it at a trusted dealership like Haddad Nissan. Check out our extensive inventory of quality used cars today!

New Dealership

There’s a new dealership in town, and luckily it’s a name you already trust – Haddad!

Haddad Nissan officially opened on March 2, 2015. We are at the site of the Haddad Preowned store on West Housatonic St. in Pittsfield. And we’re so excited to be serving the Berkshires!

“The Haddad Auto Group is so incredibly happy to have the Nissan franchise,” said General Manager Mike Coggin. “There seems to be a huge market for Nissans in Berkshire County- everyone I’ve talked to has owned a Nissan at some point in their life.  Nissan’s the fastest growing franchise and it’s an unbelievable opportunity to have one of the top 4 brands in the world!”

The Haddad Nissan store will retain the entire inventory that the Haddad Preowned store held, plus a full lineup of Nissan vehicles. We offer guaranteed credit approval and Nissan Service and Parts as well.

“Everyone’s been thrilled with the huge selection of new Nissans we have on our lot,” said Sales Manager Jarrod Blache.  “We have over 170 new Nissans in our inventory – Sedans, SUVs, Trucks, Utility Vans – Nissan offers them all!  Not only do we have the very popular Altima, we also have a great selection of the new and totally redesigned Nissan Rogue.  With the 2016 redesign of the Maxima and Titan coming out later this year, it’s a great time to be a Nissan Dealership!”

We have 6 salespeople including Jeff ‘Snowy’ Snow and Derek Thibodeau, who joined us from Johnson Nissan. Scott O’Connell heads up our Commercial & Fleet Sales.
