Is it worth buying a used 4x4 truck?

 

If you're shopping for a truck at our used car dealer in Elkhart, you'll enjoy a huge and diverse selection. USA-1 maintains an excellent inventory of used trucks for sale near you. With so many outstanding options available, choosing the right truck can be tricky. You'll have to make more decisions than you would if you were in the market for a simple sedan. Along with selecting a brand, model, powertrain, and cab style, what kind of drivetrain do you need? 

 

Choosing between a 4x4 or 4x2 used truck for sale is one of the most important choices you'll make. USA-1 would like to review the pros and cons of buying a 4x4 used truck near you. We hope this information helps you out when you visit our local buy here, pay here!

 

What are the pros and cons of a 4x4?

 

There are advantages and disadvantages to a 4x4 used truck for sale near you. It's crucial to understand these pros and cons before you commit to a truck at our car dealership in Elkhart, Indiana.

 

Pros of 4x4

 

  • Extra-capable off-road and on inclement terrain

  • Power and control delivered to all four wheels

  • Excellent resale value

 

Cons of 4x4

 

  • Reduced fuel economy

  • Higher purchase price

  • More expensive maintenance

 

As you can see, 4x4 trucks provide power and performance. If you can sacrifice efficiency and savings, a 4x4 truck could be well worth the investment. Our used car dealer in Elkhart offers appealing trucks with both drivetrains. No matter which you prefer, you'll be spoiled for choice at USA-1.

 

Does 4x4 increase insurance?

 

Depending on your insurer, you may receive higher premiums for a 4x4 truck than a 4x2 model. 4x4 used trucks for sale near you feature more complex systems. A 4x4 system is more difficult and expensive to repair than a standard front-wheel drive system. Since insurers need to account for the repair and replacement costs of a vehicle, 4x4 used trucks near you may be more expensive to insure. 

 

Is it good to drive with 4x4 in heavy rain?

 

Yes, when the roads are slick and slippery, your 4x4 system will give you the traction you need. Visit our used car dealer in Elkhart to test-drive a 4x4 truck today to see for yourself! With power delivered to all four wheels, you'll remain stable on rain-slick roads. However, a 4x4 system is no replacement for safe driving. Always exercise caution driving your used truck for sale in poor weather conditions.

 

Is it OK to drive in 4X4 on dry pavement?

 

Nope! Don't ever drive your 4x4 used truck on dry pavement with the 4WD system engaged. The 4x4 system isn't designed for high-traction terrain, like a dry, paved road. To avoid seriously damaging your truck, only engage the 4x4 system when you need to use it.
