Once upon a time when you bought a foreign car, everyone looked at it as a political statement, and some might have even railed over the fact that you didn’t buy American. But today, the global economy has changed all of that. Now the differences between domestic and foreign cars are much less significant, and some of the reasons to avoid import cars have been negated. Here are some benefits that you’ll enjoy when owning an import auto.
Best Ranked Vehicles
Authoritative groups such as Consumer Reports have done a lot of research into the safety, reliability, cost, value, and overall features of vehicles. Consumer Reports and similar organizations consistently rank foreign made cars at the top of the list in almost every category. If you want the best possible vehicle, you want an import car.
Your options for reducing your impact on the environment are also greatly increased when you buy a foreign car, especially today. The U.S. is far behind Europe when it comes to environmental protections and reducing carbon footprint. This is why foreign cars are more eco-friendly and use less fuel. You also have more options for electric or hybrid cars that are going to be much more reliable than domestic of the same type.
Ease of Getting Parts
It used to be a big hassle to try to get parts for foreign cars. But with today’s global marketplace, that is no longer the case. In fact, it is almost as easy to get import auto parts as it is to get parts for domestic vehicles. (Keep in mind that current pandemic quarantine and customs issues may delay your parts’ arrival in the U.S.) It is also important to recognize that many of the parts used for domestic cars are actually manufactured overseas and brought to the U.S. for assembly.
