In general, the choice between a new and used Alfa Romeo vehicle often comes down to what’s most important to you. If avoiding the rapid depreciation that typically occurs in the first year a vehicle is owned is important, then you’ll probably want to buy a previously owned car. When you get a pre-owned vehicle, someone else will have already absorbed this rapid depreciation which will preserve more of the equity you have in your automobile.
If you want to keep your insurance and registration fees as low as possible, you may want to buy a pre-owned car. These fees are based at least partially on what you pay for your automobile. Since previously owned cars often cost less than new ones, you’ll typically pay less to insure and register a pre-owned vehicle.
While some pre-owned automobiles come with a limited warranty or their original warranty may be transferable, there are no guarantees that the previously owned car you want will come with any sort of protection. If you want a guarantee that your automobile will have a warranty, you’ll want to look into buying a new car.
