Benefits of Buying a 1-Owner Vehicle at Patrick MINI in Schaumburg

When buying your next MINI, consider the benefits of choosing a 1-owner vehicle. Purchasing a well-maintained pre-owned MINI can save you money while getting you into a reliable car at the same time.

A 1-owner car is a used car that has only been owned by one person and usually comes with a variety of benefits many other used cars don’t offer.

Here are three benefits of purchasing a 1-owner MINI.

Less Wear and Tear

1-owner vehicles typically are well maintained and have a shorter maintenance report. Each owner approaches car maintenance differently. With a 1-owner vehicle, you are less likely to encounter a person with poor maintenance habits or careless driving habits.

Frequent changes in ownership can mean that a vehicle has problems that owners don’t want to deal with. One owner = less problems.

Be sure to ask for the CarFax Vehicle History Report to view the vehicle’s last reported maintenance and service visit as well as any crash and damage history. If the car has been branded as a lemon, salvaged, or rebuilt, the CarFax History Report can provide that information as well.

Still Relatively New

Since new car owners typically keep vehicles for around five years, the vehicle will still have a long future ahead of them as well as up-to-date technology such as wireless connectivity, safety systems, and hands-free features. You get the monetary advantage of used cars but the functional advantage of a new car! That includes depreciation. The original vehicle buyer has already taken that big depreciation hit and you get to be the beneficiary of that.

Ease of Mind

Simply, it’s just nice knowing that fewer people have driven your car.
