Let’s face it: Cars can cost a lot of money. In fact, for most people, a vehicle is the second-most expensive purchase they’ll ever make, behind only buying a house. But financially speaking, there’s at least one major difference between the two. Namely, while houses can often go up in price as time goes by, the value of nearly all new cars heads in the opposite direction. That makes the used cars for sale in Sherman Oaks much less expensive than their brand-new counterparts.
We’re talking about some serious savings, too, because the typical new car can depreciate by 20% or more in its very first year on the road. Additionally, the older the vehicle, the more its value tends to drop. For example, a five-year-old car can often see depreciation rates above 60%.
The important thing to remember for used-car buyers, however, is that depreciation takes its toll even when vehicles are meticulously cared for. In other words, pre-owned cars — especially the ones at Capital Auto Company — can still be in great condition with many years and miles of life left in them. After all, our well-earned reputation is built on reliability!
As they used to ask in those old ads, “Have you driven a Ford lately?” Because if you haven’t, you just may be surprised at the type of first-class amenities you can get in the brand’s modern lineup. Even its pre-owned models can be outfitted with in-demand safety technologies, high-end luxuries, and exclusive infotainment benefits. Indeed, the Blue Oval boasts some of the best-equipped used cars for sale in Sherman Oaks. (Please note that exact features can vary by model and model year.)
You can count on the Capital Auto Company for a carefully selected collection of pre-owned Fords, with a particular emphasis on the ones that we think Southern California drivers will like best. Further, if you don’t find what you’re looking for in our current inventory, be sure to talk to one of our honest and experienced sales consultants about having us locate your favorite Ford for you. As for our favorites, they include:
Born in the Detroit area in 1863, Henry Ford went on to build his first motorized vehicle — the tiller-steered, ethanol-powered Quadricycle — before the turn of the century. Ford followed that up by launching his own motor company, and the Model A car, in 1903. But perhaps Ford’s brightest idea was to introduce mass-production techniques to the manufacturing of automobiles. First used with the 1908 Model T, this new approach to building cars revolutionized the auto industry by making vehicles much more affordable. As a result, Ford sold some 15 million Model T’s before ending production of the car in 1927.
The Ford Motor Company was a major contributor to the U.S. military effort in World War II, after which the Blue Oval returned to peace-time production and put together an impressive run of new models that included the original F Series trucks in 1948 and the Thunderbird in 1954. More success followed with fantastic Fords like the Mustang, Explorer, Taurus, and GT, making a major impact on the road and in U.S. culture. It’s a track record of success that’s still going strong today!
