3 Myths about Buying a Pre-Owned Mitsubishi

May 19th, 2021 by

Are you thinking about buying a pre-owned Mitsubishi vehicle? Unfortunately, many drivers are hesitant to buy pre-owned because of car-buying myths that can’t be further from the truth.

Fortunately, O’Brien Mitsubishi of Normal is here to dispel some of the more popular myths about buying pre-owned. Here are three myths you shouldn’t believe when shopping for a pre-owned Mitsubishi. 

Myth #1: Higher Mileage Means Reduced Reliability 

It’s a common misconception that pre-owned vehicles with low mileage will last longer than pre-owned vehicles with high mileage. However, that’s not the case, since mileage isn’t the only factor that affects a vehicle’s reliability.

Ultimately, a pre-owned vehicle that hasn’t been cared for will be more unreliable than a well-cared-for, high-mileage vehicle.   

Myth #2: All Pre-Owned Vehicles are Unreliable 

At our dealership, we hear many buyers express their wariness over buying a pre-owned vehicle. That’s because the most common pre-owned car-buying myth is that pre-owned vehicles are unreliable.

While many drivers have experiences with unreliable private sellers, all the vehicles at our pre-owned Mitsubishi dealership have passed an inspection from our Mitsubishi service team.   

Myth #3: Maintaining a Pre-Owned Vehicle is Too Expensive 

Although this myth is a bit less common, it still affects buying decisions. Many buyers believe that it’s more costly to maintain a pre-owned vehicle than it is to buy a brand-new one.

In a similar vein, man drivers believe that caring for a pre-owned vehicle will outweigh the benefit of a pre-owned car’s lower price point. However, our pre-owned Mitsubishi vehicles don’t have major issues, so they’ll still be more affordable in the long run.
