If you can buy a brand new car at dealer cost versus buying a pre-certified used car with your own negotiating, which is a better deal?

Asked by Jan 15, 2017 at 09:06 AM about the 2017 Nissan Maxima SL FWD

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I can buy a new car thru a Friends and Family deal and get it at dealer cost OR
knowing the depreciation on a new car, would it better more cost effective to
negotiate on my own for a pre-certified used car? I may or may not be trading in
my current vehicle,2008 Lexus GS350, premium package.

Hard to say. Depends on how old the used car is. If your looking at buying a used car that is only 1-2 years old, sometimes it's better to just buy new. If used 3-5 years old, much better to buy used based on price, but now you have to think about warranty and replacing parts.
