Lets face it, buying a car is not easy. When you need help, you turn to the internet but many times,the internet either does not have what you need or it has too much of information. So, we at Zoomo decided we will create the ultimate used car guide which will have everything you need to know about used cars and simplify the process of buying used cars. In this article, we talk about why buying a used car is better than buying a new car.

First of all, let me state the obvious, buying a new car is not exactly a good idea. The only good thing is that you don’t have to be that careful and you get the new car smell but you are paying a huge price for that smell. When you sell the new car, you will lose more than you would want to. Buying used cars does not drain your wallet. Its just that you have to becareful and not buy the first car you find. Its important to do good research on the cars regarding which wewill be creating more guides soon.

Reason No. 1 — More car for same amount of money

Think about it, if your budget is 6 lakhs,you can buy a brand new Maruti Swift, it’s a nice car, but still tiny littlecar. Not the type people would have a second look at or not the car to enjoy long trips. Now, if you were to buy a used car, you could be driving a Honda City. It’s a beautiful, quite luxurious and a powerful car. So why settle for something small when you can have it big? Check out this table which shows more examples of how you could buy a bigger used car

Reason No. 2 — Same car for less money

There is one more angle to the earlier point, Lets take an example of mid-range sedan like the Honda City 1.5 MVT. For a new Honda City, you will have to spend around 13 lakhs including road tax etc of over 2 lakhs. Now, if you were to sell the car within the next two years or so, you would lose at least 3–4 lakhs, which means the depreciation is over 2 lakhs per year. Instead, if you buy a 2 year old used Honda City, you would be spending only around 8.7 lakhs. Now, when you sell this used city after driving it for 3 years, you will lose only 3 lakhs in 3 years depreciating at 1 lakh per year. So what we can see here is that,by buying a used car, you are incurring less depreciation, avoiding paying all the road tax and in total, making a smaller down payment

Reason No. 3 — Cars are meant to last looong

Cars are built to last years, and most cars for at least 2,00,000 kms. So when you are buying a used car which has run less than 40000 kms, you have nothing to worry about because they will easily run for another 100000 kms without any major changes. If you give it the right amount of care, you will only have the occasional trips to the service centre.

Not only that, Usually most first owners love their car and take it around carefully. They wash it regularly, and service it only from the company itself. They are probably the only one driving it so the car will be pretty smooth. To ensure that the car was maintained well, you should either buy certified cars or get the car inspected with the help of an expert which Zoomo provides.

Reason No. 4 — Used cars are ideal for beginners

Bought a new car and didn’t like it? Sell it and you are gonna lose a lot of money. Bought a used car and didn’t like it? Just sell it and you are not going to lose much money. You don’t have to worry about giving the car too much care because, a little scratch or dent, here or there is not going to affect the value as much as it would have if it was a new car. This means, used cars are always best for first time drivers.

Buying a used car involves pretty low risk, unless you did not get the car inspected. It’s very crucial, that you get an expert to inspect the car and that you test drive it. Zoomo offers inspections for only Rs.299 on any car in Bangalore. Having said that, buying used car has low risks and is also a good idea for anyone who is buying cars for the first time.

Reason No. 5 — Used cars are better for the planet

If everyone kept buying new cars, there is going to be more cars than the world can handle. Companies like Airbnb and Ola cabs is encouraging more and more sharing of each other’s resources and it’s important that we continue to move towards a society which shares and utilizes its resources smartly. Used cars plays a crucial part in helping us have a better planet to live in. Think about it, when we were small, we used to wear our elder sibling/cousins clothes and play with their toys, and now that you have grown up, you could own cars similarly.

How to Buy A Car

Websites To Buy Cars

In early 2015, I began hearing rumors of the new Ford Focus RS. I had been toying with the idea of buying a new daily driver, since my bright idea to daily driver a Lamborghini was not turning out the way I had planned. The rumors slowly became facts, and the car hit many of the things I was looking for. It was fast (I can track it!), it had all wheel drive (for the Seattle rain), it had four doors (great for hauling my pug around), and most importantly it was going to be cheap enough that I could justify giving away our other car to my wife’s parents, who desperately needed a new vehicle.

In September 2015, before the order books were open, I began searching for a dealer who actually had an allotment. I had heard stories of people who ‘ordered’ other high demand cars such as GT350s only to find out, months later, that their dealer in fact was never going to receive one. Luckily, a friend of mine knew the General Manager of a Ford dealer located 4 hours away who not only had a single allotment, they would sell it to me for MSRP! I want to stress that this dealership has been GREAT through this whole process. They are also victims in Ford Corporate’s horrible bungling of the situation and I’m sure they want nothing more than to get my car to me.

The order books officially opened on October 12th of 2015 and I placed one of the very first orders for a fully loaded Nitrous Blue Focus RS. My dealer commented how, due to how fast we placed it, this could be one of the first 5 delivered on the West Coast. We tentatively thought it could arrive as soon as January, but I wasn’t going to hold my breath.

January came and went with no car. This wasn’t a huge surprise to me as they had just started building them. My dealer kept insisting my car should enter ‘Production’ status any day now, so I still kept tabs every couple of weeks. In February is where things started to go wrong. The factory was shut down for 3 weeks to fix something on all the cars produced to that date, and to change the tooling to prevent whatever issue was plaguing them from happening any more. Ford never officially communicated on this, but rumors were that it had something to do with the Rear Drive Unit (RDU) on the car. The RDU unit was brand new, cutting edge technology so some hiccups were to be expected.

Cars were being built, but mine was nowhere in sight. We obviously weren’t going to be one of the first 5 on the West Coast, but I was sure I’d get my car in due time. The only problem was this — Ford wasn’t giving anyone any information. The production process was and still is a complete mystery. As of this writing, there are people that ordered the same day as me (October 12th) whose cars have STILL NOT BEEN PRODUCED.

The savior of both myself and everyone else on the Focus forums were two anonymous Ford employees who, in their spare time, were secretly giving us information of our cars. It was through these two heroes that I was told the day my car started production — March 13th. My car’s production was halted at one point (as were others) to fix yet another issue, but it was ready to be shipped out in April. Along with a couple hundred other cars, it was loaded onto the Grand Legacy late April and made way for Newark, New Jersey. The Focus forums had a lot of fun as we all tracked the ship in real time — and one fan even snuck on to the boat to take pictures once it docked!

Users tracked the Grand Legacy in realtimeSomeone even snuck on the boat. My car is somewhere in there!

And this is where the fun stops. Ford found out about the employees on the forum and told them to cease all information exchange. My car was unloaded in Newark, New Jersey on May 6th and that is the last time I’ve heard anything. Seriously. It has now been 10 weeks since my car has been unloaded and I don’t have it. I don’t know what it’s doing at the docks. Ford won’t tell me. I don’t know when it will be delivered. Ford won’t tell me. Ford told all RS owners to start contacting Ford Service on Facebook (seriously), who are outsourced customer support who read off scripts.

This helpful nugget was after 8 weeks sitting in port.

And that’s where we are today. My dealer can’t get any information — literally. His calls to Ford Corporate go unanswered. I tried emailing up the chain and received this absolute gem of an email from their crack support team:

They flat out tell a customer buying a $40,000 car they will no longer respond to them

I tried contacting them on Twitter. On Facebook. I even e-mailed Mark Fields, the CEO. I thought that was going to get the ball rolling as I received an email response from a real human, but it’s been 3 weeks and my car is still missing. I’ve offered to fly in and pick the car up, they won’t allow that. They can’t even give me an ETA. I had registered for the Virginia City Hillclimb after the car docked in May, figuring 5 months was plenty of time, and now it looks like I’m going to miss it.

What’s even worse is I’m not even the worst off. As I previously mentioned, there are people who ordered the same day I did who don’t even have production dates yet. I’m hoping Ford sees this and begins to fix their atrocious customer support system, and actually gives information to consumers. It’s insane that in today’s Same Day Delivery world, we can’t track something as major as a car.

To end on a funny note, there was someone in my position who got tired of waiting. In the time his car has been sitting in purgatory in Newark he went out, ordered a new STI, they built it, shipped it to him, and he took delivery before his car made it out of Newark. Maybe I should do that instead.

Buying a car with cash means that you don't have to worry about qualifying for a loan and potentially paying a high interest rate. What you may not realize is that paying with cash may negatively affect your bargaining position. According to the Auto Advice website, many dealers count on making extra money from the financing; if they know a buyer plans to pay with cash, they may not be as willing too negotiate. You can still get a good deal if you follow certain steps when buying a car with cash.
