At Bob Baker Subaru, we're proud to offer a wide selection of used Subaru and models from other popular automakers. Buying a used car can be a great choice for every kind of driver, and for every kind of budget. Here are just a few of the advantages to buying used:

Save Money

Buying a car used is a great way to save money on your initial purchase. Although used cars have lower starting prices than new models, they are still perfectly capable vehicles. This is especially true when the brand is famous for its rugged reliability, such as Subaru.

Lower Depreciation

If you ever change your mind about your Subaru and decide to sell, a used car lets you recoup more of your original investment. Did you know that a new car loses 10% of its value after you drive it off the lot? It loses another 10% after the first year of ownership. After those two big hits, the depreciation rate levels out. Used cars have already taken these hits, and retain their value better than new ones.

Trade-In Your Subaru

Increase Your Options

With lower costs, your selection pool greatly increases. A new top-of-the-line model with all the luxury features may not be in your price range... but one from a few years ago might be just the thing for you. Buying used lets you enjoy luxury capabilities and features that might normally be out of your budget.

Access to Vehicle Reports

While buying a used car could be risky decades ago, the times have changed. Today, it is easier than ever to get a full vehicle history report. With services like CarFax, you never have to worry about driving off the lot in a lemon.

Potentially Lower Insurance Costs

There's more to purchasing a car that its cost alone; you also need to factor in insurance costs. Car insurance costs are based on the total value of the vehicle. Used cars have a lower value, which translates to lower insurance costs. This leaves you with more money in your wallet.
