What are the advantages of choosing a used vehicle?

When it comes to buying a vehicle, people often have difficulty in deciding whether to buy a brand-new model or one that has been used for a few years.

Which is the better option? The debate has been raging since the dawn of the automobile era and according to one’s situation or background, we may choose one option over the other.

The truth is that each has its advantages but to believe that one is far superior to the other is simply misleading. That’s probably why roughly one out of every two vehicles sold each year has already been registered. And if approximately 50% of consumers are choosing a used model, there must be some benefit to doing so.

If you want to know what’s out there for you on the used car market,, your online dealership, has some of the finest used SUVs for sale in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean, Côte-Nord and Charlevoix regions. Take advantage of second and third opportunity credit financing, where our experts are available to answer your questions and steer you in the right direction so you can get behind the wheel of one of our reliable brand-name cars.

Getting back to the benefits, let’s take a look at a few examples of models we have in stock.


Many car owners lease their new vehicles for three or four years. By the time they are returned to us, they are often in superb condition, as their owners were responsible for bringing them back in tip top shape. In addition, many people own more than one vehicle, resulting in some models being returned with very low mileage.

By opting for a three- or four-year-old used vehicle with 50,000 km or 60,000 km, from a trusted brand, you are essentially buying a practically brand-new model for a fraction of the price. One look through the inventory on hand and you’ll see some interesting contenders.

A great example is this 2016 Hyundai Elantra GT. Priced at only $11,732, it has only 34,145 km on the odometer. And what about this 2017 Mazda3 GS that is flawless at only $13,441. What’s the mileage? Only 40,690 km.

Many times, when we are interested in a new vehicle, we get a little carried away with the options offered, or we dream of driving a more luxurious model that is beyond our budget. By looking at the used car market, we can benefit from the high depreciation of luxury vehicles and finally get the model of your dreams.

Some examples? A BMW 3 Series (320i) at only $23,418 (60,358 km), or a Lexus NX 200T SUV at $31,532 with only 39,788 km. There are numerous examples of this type of vehicle that deserve to be given serious consideration. And the great thing about is that you can take advantage of the Cupido program which gives you the chance to literally fall in love with your new vehicle.

Essentially, what we offer you is a 24-hour test drive before you make a decision, to give you the greatest possible peace of mind. An extended test drive with no obligation and a no-questions-asked return policy; you can’t afford not to.

Plus, you get a 14-day no-questions-asked exchange privilege. Don’t hesitate to consult our experts at the dealership to learn all the details on this program, which is designed to get you behind the wheel of your next vehicle without the stress of having to choose the right model for you.


In summary, opting for a used vehicle has its advantages. In addition to the lower purchase price, you can also enjoy a model with an already well-established reputation on the market, as opposed to the risk of buying a newly designed product.

In short, buying a used vehicle through a dealer like ensures that you’ll come out a winner, and at the best price.
