Why Buy a Used Ford

Probably the No. 1 reason that folks buy any used vehicle is to save money, and it’s no different with Fords. That’s because nearly all brand-new vehicles experience serious rates of depreciation — typically 20% to 30% — in just their first year out of a dealership. By the time a vehicle has been on the road for 5 years, you can expect it to be worth about 40% of its original MSRP. Which means you can expect to save that kind of cash by purchasing a pre-owned Ford instead of a similarly equipped new model. You can also look forward to saving additional money with your insurance company, since most insurers set their coverage costs based on how much a vehicle is worth.

CarMotive can also boost your confidence in specific used Fords by providing a vehicle history report that details past owners, service records, any previous accidents, and more. It’s all part of our hassle-free approach to car buying.

A Brief History of Ford

Henry Ford got his start building early cars like the 1896 Quadricycle and soon expanded his business into the Ford Motor Company that launched its first vehicle, the Model A, in 1903. The 1908 Model T then revolutionized the auto market as the first successful example of mass-production manufacturing techniques in the industry. The process drastically lowered pricing, which helped the Model T go on to sell some 15 million units before production ended in 1927.

Once firmly established as among the country’s favorite auto brands, Ford went on to introduce many more hugely popular models over the years, from the Ford Thunderbird and Crown Vic to the original Bronco and Explorer. Today, a lot of the latest potential classics can be found right here at CarMotive.
