Whether you’re looking to save a few dollars, or if you require certain specifications and amenities, the used cars you’ll find on the lot at Car Credit Nation’s Falls Church and Winchester locations are sure to deliver the goods — and at a lower overall cost than you’d pay for the same car brand new.
Why buy new when you can buy used?
New cars depreciate, and fast.
As soon as all four of those shiny new wheels hit pavement that doesn’t belong to the dealership, the value of a new car depreciates by as much as 20 percent. Three years later, that once-new, now-used car is only worth 60 to 70 percent of its original value. Choose to buy used in Falls Church: The car’s original owner will have absorbed all of the depreciation of value.
Never worry about overpriced dealer repairs.
With the purchase of certain new model cars, you’ll be forced into returning to the dealership for maintenance and repairs, otherwise risk voiding the warranty. Choose to buy used in Winchester: Have your car fixed when, and where you choose to do so.
Do your part to save the planet.
Sure, at first glance it seems like if you’re going to help save the planet, you should buy a hybrid. Right? Not necessarily. It actually takes way more energy to build a new hybrid than it does to buy a used car; in fact, a hybrid must be driven 46,000 miles before the car breaks even in terms of fuel efficiency. Choose to buy used in Falls Church: Buying a used car will reduce your carbon footprint in a far more noticeable way than increasing demand for more new cars.
Pay less for car insurance.
Car insurance rates are higher for new cars than for used cars, simply for the fact that they cost more: Annual insurance rates run as high as 20 percent of a car’s sticker price. Choose to buy used in Winchester: Save yourself more than a little bit of money for years to come.
Get a reliable car, at a great deal.

If you take the time to do your research— Oh, who are we kidding? If you take the time to visit Car Credit Nation, northern Virginia’s most reputable used car dealer, you can drive away in a set of just as shiny new-to-you wheels.
