Used Toyota Rav 4 SUV For Sale in Edmonton, AB
When looking for a new car in your life, you have to make a choice. Do you buy new or used?
New vehicles have the latest safety features and technological advancements. They also have the newest engineering and they won’t need major maintenance for a long time.
The major issue with a new car is the issue of rapid depreciation. A new car can lose a third of its value in its first two of three years off the lot.
A huge drawback is that if you finance a new car with a low down payment, you will quickly find yourself on the down side of the loan. This is when you owe more money than the car is worth.
Buying used is beneficial because you can find the car you want that is only a few years old and it has already had its biggest depreciation. This way you get a better price on a car that can have little wear.
The Toyota Rav4 was the first compact crossover Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) introduced in Asia and Europe back in 1994. It was designed for those customers who were seeking the benefits of an SUV while maintaining the manoeuvrability of a car. This niche of vehicles has taken off with the Rav4 being a front leader. In fact, its name Rav4 stands for “Recreational Active Vehicle with 4-wheel drive.”
The Rav4 is smartly designed, with handsome, rugged looking bodywork that portrays this machine’s off road capability, as can be expected from Toyota vehicles. Along with function comes luxury. It is available with alloy rims, Bluetooth connectivity in new models, rear parking sensors, cruise control, CD changer and climate control to name a few. To ensure you get a good vehicle, you need to look at reliability.
A pre-purchase inspection is always a smart idea. Also do your research and look up what manufacturers and models are deemed reliable. Great places to get information is of course Consumer Reports and JD Power and Associates. But any type of blog is a great help. Remember to cross-reference a few sites, this way you are getting more than one answer. Some bloggers can be very biased and have a hate on for a manufacturer. Basically take a poll and make a decision from that.
Be smart about which Rav4 you buy. Have a look under the hood, get an inspection and follow your gut.
