Why Buying Used Cars Over Luxury Brand Cars Are Better

Luxury brand carsWhen you honestly think about buying a car you don’t automatically think about getting rid of it the day you buy it. But with the Nissan Versa Note, most people actually unload the car in under a year. What I can tell you is this you shouldn’t buy a car for luxury because you’re probably going to dump it in about two years. In this article, you will find out why its not a grand idea to purchase luxury brand cars.


Luxury cars that are being resold in less than a year


Here are some cars that most people dump within a year and surprisingly they are all luxury brands.


  • Audi Q3
  • Jaguar XF sports sedan
  • Audi A3 compact car
  • Audi A4 sports sedan


Brands that are being resold on a national scale


Here is a list of cars that are most often sold in the first year and yes Nissan is in this list.


  • Mercedes Benz C- class
  • BMW 3 series
  • Land Rover Discovery Sport
  • Land Rover Range Rover
  • Mini Clubman
  • BMW X1
  • BMW X3
  • Nissan Versa Note
  • Jag XF
  • Nissan Versa


The C- class is sold mostly in the popular metro areas such as Boston, Dallas, Chicago, and Atlanta. But here is a surprising fact that around 35% of the Mercedes Benz C-class were resold in the first year.


The main reason for these luxury brands to be resold in less than a year? Is reliability these luxury brands cars are just not worth there weight in gold. The biggest luxury brand that tops the charts for luxury cars that are resold within a year is German. So to not go into a ton of detail just don’t buy luxury brands or brand new luxury cars there not worth the money.

Also, from what I know right now with luxury vehicles you will want to stay away from brands like Nissan and Fiat as they are towards the bottom of every list I checked.
