Should I buy new or used?

Great bargains but be wary of "too good to be true" vehicles

As much as we would all like to buy brand new vehicles, sometimes it just isn’t feasible and so our only option to buy second-hand. There are times when we find a good bargain and then there are times when people find to have purchased a lemon.

Buying used from a reputable dealership like Ace Scooters means that the scooter has been checked over in the workshop and test ridden by a workshop member to ensure a safe ride. The scooter must be safe, sound, reliable and licensed before we would consider selling it to a customer. There is also a warranty aspect: Below a certain mileage and age and above an amount of $3500 (as per year 2016), a dealership has to provide Statutory Warranty on a vehicle.

There is always a risk in buying second-hand machines as you never know its history and how it has been treated during its previous life. Buying a new machine sees you ride away on a scooter that nobody else has owned, you begin the history. Warranty is full, rego current and as perfect as you would expect. No mysteries…it’s all clean and new.
