Why Buy Used from Motor City LA

When you're looking for a new car, truck, SUV, motorcycle, or other motor vehicle, you don't have to buy brand-new—a "new-to-you" used vehicle can be just as performant and comfortable as a new one, while dodging many of the negatives of a new vehicle. At Motor City LA, we've dealt exclusively with pre-owned vehicles for years, so we can spot the best deals and pass those on to our customers!

Enjoy a Lower Price with a Used Car

Perhaps the most common benefit listed when considering a pre-owned SUV, car, or truck is the price. What you might not realize is that, in many cases, the price is the only difference between a brand-new and a used car.

With our great financing options and vehicle specials, buying a pre-owned vehicle from Motor City is even easier! And by trading-in your old vehicle with us, you can apply its value to your new purchase, saving even more.

Don't Sweat Depreciation in a Pre-Owned Motorcycle

It's common knowledge that, as soon as you drive a brand-new vehicle off the lot, its value depreciates by about 15%. It continues to lose value quickly over the first three to five years of ownership, by up to 60% of its original value!

After the first few years, however, the rate of depreciation slows considerably, which effectively offers you a discount on a used vehicle. A used motorcycle, SUV, or truck that's 2 years old is in nearly-new condition, while costing much less than if you bought it brand-new. So if you're worried about cost, a used vehicle from Motor City can be a great choice.

Lemons are a Thing of the Past with CARFAX and more

There was a time when buying a used vehicle was a roll of the dice -- you might get a great deal on a solid driver, or you might get the dreaded lemon. Nowadays, it's easy to avoid that problem with used vehicle certification programs, like CARFAX. Most of the cars, trucks and SUVs on our lot carry a detailed CARFAX Vehicle History Report, which gives you a full history on any collisions, service, and more that the vehicle has gone through, giving you greater peace of mind than was possible in the past.

Lower Rates on Financing and Insurance with a Pre-Owned Vehicle

When you purchase a used truck, SUV, or other vehicle from Motor City's dealership in Lafayette, you don't just save money on the sticker price. Because the base price is lower, it's easier to get a lower interest rate on the loan for that vehicle, meaning that you'll have a lower note each month and you'll pay even less over the lifetime of the car.

What's more, since insurance rates are partially based on the value of your vehicle, you can insure your used motorcycle, truck, RV, ATV, or even boat for less than a new one. That saves you even more money, so even when you do need to repair or maintain your used vehicle, you'll still come out on top!
