Ways to Save When Buying a Budget-Friendly Used Car Under $15K at Paramount Volvo Cars of Hickory

Sometimes, drivers in the Hickory area need to find a used car that is reliable and affordably priced. The good news is that recent cars are made from materials that are built to last, and it is not unusual to see one with higher mileage that still has many more miles to go. You do not have to spend a fortune to get a decent new-to-you vehicle priced at under $15K. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Subcompact Cars

Shopping for subcompact cars and SUVs is an excellent way to get a car that is affordable, and that gets good gas mileage. Many subcompact SUVs have as much power and stability as their larger counterparts. Today's subcompacts are designed to take advantage of the space, and they often feel surprisingly roomy on the inside.

Many of them have interiors that you can configure for extra cargo space with 60/40 split-folding seats and fold-flat rear seats. You can find popular subcompacts from makers like Volvo, Honda, Chevrolet, Toyota, and Kia. A hatchback might be your perfect budget-friendly option, too.

Base Models

If you are looking for less than $15,000 car, truck, SUV, or crossover, you might want to consider a standard trim package. Of course, it is nice to go for the higher trims with all of their amenities, but if you are looking to keep a bit of cash in your pocket, you might want to consider a base trim. Sometimes, you can find one that is a bit newer because someone traded up.

You might be surprised at the standard features that some manufacturers include in their base models. You might not be able to get leather seats and a premium stereo on the standard trims, but sometimes, you can get features like added driver assistance features and generous touchscreen infotainment systems. Since these models are offered for much less than they were new, you can find great features while sticking to your budget.

Reliable Brands

Certain brands have a reputation for lasting a long time around Newton and Lenoir. Engineering standards have improved over the years, and some cars are known to be reliable, even if they have higher mileage. This is especially the case if they have been maintained and have had regular service. Fortunately, now you can find out this information by ordering a CarFax report.

Every model in our bargain inventory is checked out by our trusted service technicians before coming onto our lot, so you can feel confident with whichever model you choose. We only provide the best-quality vehicles for our customers in the Statesville area.

Why Buy Used Under $15,000 at Paramount Volvo Cars of Hickory?

You have many other reasons to consider buying a used car other than price. When buying used, you have a greater selection than when buying a new car. Each year, makers might feature major changes in one model or trim, but the changes to other models may be minor. Sometimes, they add one feature, and sometimes, they will remove a few. However, for the most part, there is little difference between a model that is a few years old and the latest model year, except the price.

Another reason to consider used is that you can often afford an upgrade in features and amenities. Because the car is affordably priced, you might be able to get a higher trim level. You might be able to get those leather seats, advanced safety features, or that power moonroof that you always wanted. No matter what model you choose, you're sure to enjoy every drive around Morganton and beyond.
