Why Buy Used?

A used vehicle can offer the technology, amenities, and performance that you want, at a more reasonable price. But affordability is not the only benefit of a used vehicle, explore all of the advantages of buying used rather than new. Discover the used vehicle benefits waiting for you, including:


New vehicles have been released within the last two model years, which limits available inventory. Do not limit yourself to a restricted variety, when you can explore makes, models, and trim options from a variety of years!


At Birdnow Motor Trade of Oelwein, you are entitled to a CARFAX history report with every used vehicle. This will disclose a complete report of publicly available information on your vehicle, from accidents to maintenance, giving you complete transparency on the performance and quality.

Less Depreciation:

Rather than suffering from value depreciation the second you drive a new vehicle off of the lot, enjoy less depreciation, and retain the purchasing value of your next vehicle by purchasing one that has already incurred initial depreciation.

Sales Tax:

Most states charge a sales tax of 4% to 6% of the vehicle’s purchase value. That can add a significant amount on top of the initial cost of a new vehicle. A used car not only costs less but will require you to pay less sales tax costs.


When you purchase a used vehicle, you will have the opportunity to add features or accessories that you may not be able to afford if it were a new vehicle. After-market parts also come at a lower cost when compared to new ones, since there is a larger inventory and more brand choices.


Insurance rates vary for each driver, but the year, make, model and added features can lower costs. Since used vehicles are more affordable to begin with, driver assistance features are more accessible and will then lower your monthly payment even more!
