Is January 2022 a good time to buy a used car in Georgia? Yes, this winter is a great time to choose a used car, and we’re here to tell you why. Keep reading below to learn more with American Car Center, your pre-owned dealership with stores in Athens, Augusta, Chamblee, Columbus, Conyers, Lawrenceville, Lithia Springs, Macon, Marietta, Riverdale, Savannah, and Stone Mountain, GA. 


Dealerships tend to be less busy during the cold winter months 

We recommend shopping for your next used vehicle during the winter because there is a good chance the dealership will be less busy than the popular summer months. This means you get more one-on-one attention from the staff. It also means that you can snag great deals before anyone else has the chance.

Chip shortages have caused new vehicle shortages at some dealerships 

Buying pre-owned vehicles this winter is a great idea because you won’t have to deal with the vehicle shortages currently experienced by many new-vehicle dealerships. These shortages can be frustrating, but they haven’t impacted our selection of high-quality used vehicles, because our vehicles are already built and already exist on our lot when you come in for a visit. We’re sure that you’ll appreciate having a wider selection and less waiting time for your next vehicle. 

Pre-owned models save you money on high-quality vehicles 

In case you need a third reason to opt for pre-owned vehicles this month, here it is. Pre-owned vehicles are less expensive than their new vehicle counterparts, even when the used vehicle in question is high-quality and has low mileage. That’s because new vehicles depreciate a lot when they leave a dealership’s lot.
