Default Is it worth buying a used z06 auto if the new 2017s are so close in price?

I was looking mainly at new 2017 2lz z06 autos but a few people told me I can save a lot by going with a lightly used 2015. The 2015 seem to have more of the heating issues and the other transmission. Numbers wise Im not seeing huge savings at all.

This dealer is selling a used 2015 2lz z06 automatic for $67,995 with 4200 miles. I can get a brand new 2017 z06 2lz automatic with PDR for $78,782. With the new one I can get financing also for 1.99 APR for 72 months. Also on the new one I can get a 10 year/100k miles full warranty for only $3000. So whats the advantage of buying the used 2015 because I seem to be getting a new car, less cooling issues, less expensive extended warranty for only $10k more?

When you get up to those numbers and you're going to finance, monthly payments won't be that much of a difference. Me personally, if you're going to pay that much for a used, I'd opt for the new, full warranties, most bug issues eliminated, etc. Plus you don't know if any hidden abuse by another on used one.

Best of luck on your decision.
