Used Cars in Media: Long Term Value

A used car long term value varies greatly, depending on a number of factors. Some used car owners may try to add aftermarket products and invest heavily just to raise the vehicles value. However, just be aware, the money you spend does not translate dollar for dollar in your used car’s value. Some additional accessories are more worthy than others, and it is usually the ones that help keep the used car in better shape (like a truck bed liner) than something like a thousand dollar sound system. Other factors include whether the vehicle has been in an accidents, even a minor one. Paint color, too, affects the value of the used car. The most important factor, though, is that you keep your vehicle in the best shape possible. 

Vehicles, particularly used trucks, can have their value effected by how much power they have. Other factors such as towing capacity and cargo room effect value as well. Where you live is another factor in the value of a used car; think about living in a snowy, cold climate; a used convertible's value would automatically be lower then a used 4x4. How long you keep the used car is also a factor, as depreciation percentage changes every year, with the first few years being the highest. There are many factors that can change the value of any given used car. Think about these when shopping for your next vehicle, as you will likely sell it or trade it in at some point.

Finding Media Used Cars

The borough of Media is the county seat of Delaware County, Pennsylvania and is located 12 miles west of Philadelphia. Media was incorporated in 1850 at the same time that it was named the county seat. The population was 5,533 at the 2000 census. In June 2006, it became the first fair trade town in America. The history of the town goes back to William Penn, but the area remained predominantly rural until the twentieth century, and is suburban today. The Delaware County Institute of Science was founded in Media in 1833, while the Pennsylvania Institute of Technology, a two-year technical college, Williamson Free School of Mechanical Trades and Delaware County Community College, a two-year liberal arts college, are located nearby. Media promotes itself as "Everybody's Hometown."

Media is connected to Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, by the 101 trolley and is the only suburban town in the United States to have a trolley run down the middle of its main street. The trolley terminates just after the Delaware County Courthouse known as the Media-Orange Street (SEPTA station). Media also has a stop on the R3 Regional Rail Line at the corner of Orange Street and Station Road. U.S. 1 formerly ran through the borough until the "Media bypass" was completed in 1960. The bypass has an unusual "volleyball" or three-level diamond interchange with Interstate 476. Today the road, formerly known as Route 1, is known by its even older name, Baltimore Pike. Philadelphia International Airport (PHL), the 11th busiest airport in the world in 2007, is 10.2 miles driving distance (about 15 minutes) from downtown Media, following Baltimore Pike east, then Interstate 476 south and Interstate 95 northeast. Since the borough of Media is only 0.8 sq mi and the "Media zip code" 19063 covers a much larger area, the geographic term "Media" is often used in a sense that includes not only the borough of Media, but other contiguous areas that are part of other municipalities but that share the zip code. These include the entire Upper Providence Township, and in Nether Providence Township, the neighborhoods of South Media, Bowling Green, Pine Ridge, most of Middletown Township including the entire Elwyn, Bortondale, Riddlewood, Lima, Glen Riddle, and Lenni neighborhoods. Parts of Rose Valley Borough, Chester Heights Borough, Marple Township and Aston Township are sometimes included.
