The Benefits of Buying a Used Kia

We get it. Not everyone loves that new car smell, at least, not enough to shell out the extra cost compared to buying used. If you’re in the market for a used Kia, like so many other Los Angeles drivers, you’re making a smart financial choice. Why? We list out below the benefits of buying one of our quality Kia used cars. Fortunately, we have plenty of reliable used vehicles to choose from at Kia Cerritos. like the used Kia Sorento, the used Kia Soul, the used Kia Optima, Sportage, Sedona, and more.

With Kia, Used Cars Are a Smart Choice

Why would you buy a used Kia? There are plenty of reasons, especially if you’re buying a certified pre-owned vehicle. This is true whether it’s a sedan, like a used Kia Optima, or a minivan, like a used Kia Sedona, or an SUV, like a used Kia Sportage, Soul, or Sorento. Here are some benefits of buying used:

Quality cars for a lower price. Used cars are often priced 50% less than the same models new. Kia Cerritos has several reliable, late-model pre-owned vehicles priced under $10,000. You can also take advantage of our used vehicle specials.

Slower depreciation. New cars depreciate by about 30% in the first two years. Used cars, especially used Kia vehicles, hold their value at a much better rate than that.

Lower insurance premiums. You generally don’t need gap insurance when you buy used. If your new car were to be totaled, a standard insurance policy would pay for the value of the car at the time of the incident. If you owe more than what the car is worth (which often happens when cars are bought new), you would need gap insurance to pay the difference. But this is usually not necessary with used cars.

Better for the environment. Did you know that 25% of the total carbon dioxide that is produced during a vehicle’s lifetime happens during manufacturing and initial shipment? Buy used instead of new means you’ve chosen a smaller carbon footprint.

Certified Pre-owned Vehicles Are Backed by Kia. Buying a certified pre-owned vehicle takes worry out of buying used. Certified pre-owned vehicles go through a 164-point inspection, are under a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, have been reconditioned with manufacturer-authorized parts, come with a Carfax report, come with 24/7 unlimited roadside assistance, and have a rental car allowance when your car is under warrantable repair.
