In this way, the investment will not be so high and you will be able to enjoy a vehicle in good condition and with full guarantee.
Advantages of a used 4x4
· More traction, less accidents with a 4x4
One of the advantages of riding an SUV is that you can have less risk of an accident whether you are driving on the road or off it. Loss of traction on any pavement can cause the driver to lose control. Therefore, by having more traction, you can have fewer accidents and be safer behind the wheel.
· More acceleration with an SUV
What else are you going to offer a second-hand SUV? For example, greater acceleration than with other types of vehicles. Although a 4x4 is a heavier car, this happens because it has 4 support points to propel it and thus, in less time, it accelerates more.
· Driving on all types of pavement
It does not matter if there are potholes if you have to drive through mud or snow ... Another advantage, if you are going to buy a used SUV, is that you can drive on all kinds of pavements. They are prepared to climb steep slopes, difficult roads, and unfavorable weather. This does not mean that by going with a 4x4 you do not have to put chains when the road requires it. The all-wheel-drive makes it safer, but not that you have to do without them in certain circumstances.

Disadvantages of an SUV
