Shopping for used coupes can lead to a great deal on a practical daily driver, sporty pony car, or high-end luxury model.
Which cars are used coupes?
A coupe is any car with two doors, a fixed roof, and a sloping rear roofline. It’s definitely a car segment that covers a lot of bases. Coupes can be sporty (picture the Dodge Challenger, Nissan 370Z, or Chevy Camaro), practical (like the Honda Civic), or luxurious (the Audi A5, Cadillac ATS, or Porsche 911).
Finding the used coupe that’s right for you comes down to what you value in your daily drive. If fuel mileage is a big deal, you’ll be impressed with a used Civic. If speed and style are your forte, used pony cars, like the Mustang and Camaro, are very attainable. Buying a used coupe even gives you the opportunity to cruise around in a car you might not be able to afford new, like the Chevrolet Corvette or the Audi R8.
Why buy used coupes?
When you purchase a used coupe instead of a new one, you can save thousands of dollars on up-front costs. A brand new car depreciates at the steepest rates during the first three years it’s on the road. Indeed, a brand new coupe can lose 20 percent of its value the moment you drive it off the lot. But, by skipping these years of steep depreciation, you can pick up a used coupe at a great price.
But savings on up-front costs is just the beginning. Buying a used coupe helps you save money in other ways. You’ll spend less on car insurance, because collision and comprehensive coverage cost less for a vehicle that is worth less. Also, the cost of registering a used car goes down every year, helping you conserve even more cash. And, since you’re enjoying all of these savings, you can spend a little more and still get a great deal on a luxury car you couldn’t otherwise afford.
What should I look for when I’m shopping for used coupes?
First of all, if any used-car stigmas are lingering in your mind, it’s time to banish them. Modern cars are as reliable as they’ve ever been, and many are able to drive over 100,000 miles before needing any major fixes. You can also drive modern cars further than ever between regular maintenance visits, such as when you need an oil change, tire rotation, or brake job.
More than that, you won’t find any lemons on our lot. Our technicians carefully review every potential offering before it’s allowed onto the sales lot. This way, we can ensure that every used coupe you test-drive will give you the durability you seek.
