Should You Buy Used or New?

At Defouw Chevrolet in Lafayette, IN, we have a wide selection of new and pre-owned vehicles. Choosing between the two can be difficult, and we understand that Frankfort customers might want a little more information. If you're looking to get a car for the family, and you're unsure if buying new or used is right for you, keep reading to see how the two options compare.


Buying Used

  • Price: One of the significant advantages of buying pre-owned is that it costs less than buying new. If budget is the main concern for your family, you might want to consider buying used.
  • More features for less: Because the cost is lower,  customers might be able to score a more luxurious model or a trim level with extra advantages for a lower price.
  • Reliability: At DeFouw Chevrolet we offer high quality used and certified pre-owned vehicles. A CPO comes with a certification from the car's manufacturer. Our other used vehicles are in top-shape, and we offer free vehicle history reports so you know what you're getting. Customers looking to buy used can be sure their vehicle is dependable, especially if you keep up with maintenance visits.

Buying New

  • Less guesswork: When you buy a new car, you don't have to factor in questions about its condition. You know that it's coming fresh from the factory.
  • Technology: Customers around Lafayette or Delphi won't have to wait to get the newest technology from Chevrolet. You can enjoy the new comfort or safety features introduced every year, especially if you opt for a lease's flexibility.
  • Warranty: A brand new car purchased at DeFouw Chevrolet comes with a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty. This kind of coverage offers excellent peace of mind so you can feel confident when you get on the road.
  • Better Interest Rates: New car loans typically have better interest rates than used, meaning you could pay much less than the sticker price after the final price has been negotiated.
