Buying New is No Great Value

If you are considering purchasing a new car this year, something to take into account is how much will that new car be worth after you sign all the paperwork and drive it home for the first time.  If you want to get a great value when purchasing a car, we at Pumpkin Fine Cars and Exotics suggest you take a look into buying a car that is "like new".  By most estimates, new cars can lose anywhere from 20 to 40% of their value during the first year of ownership.  If you pay $20,000 for a brand new car and want to sell it in a year expect to get no more than $16,000 in return.  This is even if you treat the car with the utmost care and do not put a lot of miles on it.  So, that being the case, here at Pumpkin Cars we stock a variety of pre-owned luxury cars that are "like new"....let the previous owner take that 20-40% loss in value and you get a car that is in great shape, low mileage and by appearance looks like it is brand new. 
To give you a few examples, right now in stock , we have a 2007 Honda Accord EXL with only 36 thousand miles priced right at $16,995.  This Accord is the top of the line with Power/Heated Seats, Moon Roof, Leather Interior, 6 Disc CD Changer, Alloy Wheels and XM Satellite Radio.  It is in Pristine Condition and looks like it was just delivered from the manufacturer!  Wear and tear is minimal with 36 thousand miles, this car performs like brand new.  You may be thinking what this car goes for brand new, well with this package it would have been in the range of $27 to $29,000.  Franck Freon, the owner of Pumpkin Cars, puts each car through his own rigorous evaluation before he will put his name and the Pumpkin logo on the car and sell it.  You can trust that Franck would not sell the car unless he would own it himself! At that value we have this 2007 Honda Accord EXL at almost HALF the price of it brand new, so you get the savings, but you also get a car that looks and acts like it is brand new!  Now that is a GREAT VALUE!!
Another GREAT VALUE here at Pumpkin Cars, right now is this phenomenal 2007 BMW 328i with an odometer that has barely moved at 31 thousand miles!  This fun and stylish car is a Pristine Silver with Black LEATHER interior.  It has Power/Heated Seats with Memory Positions, Run Flat Tires and CD Player.  Not only do you get the style and performance of a "like new" 2007 BMW 328i , but you also get a factory Warranty until February 2011 and BMW Service Plan until 2013!  Realistically priced at $22,995 own this BMW today and let everyone think you bought it new!  Stop in and see the friendly, knowledgeable staff at Pumpkin Cars today for a free test drive, or to just stop and see how close to new these Pumpkin Cars really are!
