Used SUVs for Sale in Woodbridge VA

SUVs offer practicality, comfort, and versatility as a general rule. They're most definitely not the SUVs of years gone by where they were little more than enclosed trucks on a truck frame. Modern SUVs provide the same comfort and ride as a sedan, have comparable gas mileage, and retain their ability to tackle tough roads. At Koons Woodbridge Hyundai in Woodbridge, we have a great selection of used SUVs for you to consider and buy. Here's a look at why you should buy a used SUV from our dealership.

Should I Buy a Used SUV?

The decision to buy new versus used when it comes to autos is a tricky one. Buying new means dealing with depreciation in a normal auto market, and buying used eliminates the depreciation argument by and large. The problem you're more likely to run into with a used SUV is the fact that you don't know how the previous owner treated the car, you have to accept the existing features, and an overall lack of freshness on the interior and mileage on the engine. Are these drawbacks? Not necessarily, but you do need to take them into consideration. 

The good news is that car manufacturers stepped up their engineering game starting in the late '90s and only got better with time. A 5-year-old SUV that's been reasonably maintained is going to run and last for years as long as it receives the same level of maintenance. Another aspect to consider is the fact that our dealership inspects every used SUV we receive and won't put the car out for sale until we're sure it's going to run as good as new. 

Something you're going to see more of as the years pass is a high SUV to low sedan ratio for availability. Major auto manufacturers have reduced or eliminated their sedan and small car production in favor of the SUV. The result is you'll find more in the way of used SUVs than used sedans. This is not to say that you'll be forced into buying an SUV, but it may take you longer to find a used sedan that suits your needs. Buying a used SUV may not be your first choice, but it can be the right one.

The Practical Benefits of Buying a Used SUV

SUVs were designed to fit in between a truck, a sedan, and an off-road vehicle. Combining all of the aspects of these vehicle types into one unit resulted in an automobile that has higher ground clearance, more traction control for bad roads or the occasional trip off-road, space for up to seven people, and plenty of cargo room for anything you need to transport. The roofs on some SUVs are designed to carry cargo that didn't fit inside.

All these features won't deteriorate over time, and you can expect that the SUV can perform the same as if it were new. The major mechanicals on an SUV are made to truck standards and won't break down easily. Some SUV manufacturers have engines that are known to go for hundreds of thousands of miles before needing a major repair or breaking down entirely. There's strong potential that you can drive a used SUV for longer than its original owner. 

How Buying a Used SUV Saves You Money

An SUV that's loaded tends to be very expensive when purchased brand new. Buyers like brand-new cars because they can customize them through the factory, or gain access to features and details that meet their needs for an SUV. For them, the cost of the SUV is worth paying because they get the SUV they want. Once the SUV no longer meets their needs, or there's a desire to get a new model, they make their way to the used car lot for a lot less money than they originally cost. 

The previous owner took the hit of depreciation that lowered the value of the SUV over time. It's no longer worth what they paid for it off the lot because it's now used, not brand new, and may have minor issues with its condition that detract from its value. Most likely you're already aware of these details when looking at used SUVs and aren't overly concerned with them. If that's the case, you can save a great deal of money on a used and fully-loaded SUV that's also reliable and sound. 

The only major drawback to buying a used SUV is that it may need service sooner than later. However, even this shouldn't deter you from buying a used SUV.

Getting Service for a Used SUV

All cars need maintenance and repairs at some point, but if the engine core and major moving parts are kept in good shape, the repairs are usually more affordable than you'd think. This is especially true of the popular SUVs that were made by the millions, have little in the way of major changes to their engines, and are still on the road long after that particular design was phased out. Original equipment manufacturer parts for used SUVs are plentiful and inexpensive, and the technicians at the dealership service center have thousands of hours of experience in their repair.

As long as there are a substantial number of a make and model of used SUVs on the roads, there will be parts. This is especially true of SUVs that share parts with other models from the same manufacturer. Sometimes, a part is so generic that it's used in engines made by different manufacturers. Repairing a used SUV is a straightforward affair, almost always affordable, and can be done in a matter of hours instead of days.
