It’s time to stop dreaming about an upscale German car or SUV and start driving!
There’s a good reason so many people nowadays are buying used cars for sale in Portland, OR: It’s a great way to save money — and lots of it. The thing about nearly all cars, wherever they’re made and whatever they cost when new, is that they’re affected by depreciation. Indeed, depreciation can be especially hard on luxury cars, which can lose 20% of their value after their first year in service and 60% or more after five years. So when those vehicles are re-sold, they’re priced accordingly.
It’s a similar story with car insurance, which can make more of an impact than you might think. Remember, auto premiums can typically run you thousands of dollars a year. So the lower price you pay to insure a used car can really start to add up over the years.
Next, iDrive Autohaus builds on those financial benefits by boosting your confidence with our high-quality vehicles. These all undergo a careful selection process for condition and value before ever reaching our lot. You don’t have to take our word for it, though. Used-car history reports are now simple to get, and they can offer you important third-party insight into a pre-owned vehicle’s service records, past owners, accident history (if any), and more.
Here’s more good news about the used cars for sale in Portland, OR. Many of them can be just as well-equipped as new ones.

Some of our favorites are listed below.
Volkswagen grew out of Germany’s “People’s Car” project of the 1930s, which was aimed at helping make vehicle ownership more affordable for more German citizens. The result was a car designed by Ferdinand Porsche — who would go on to build a fairly famous auto brand of his own — and immediately recognizable as an early Beetle. The same basic design carried on to incredible success after World War II, and, in some markets, it was still being built right up to 2003. The bottom line: More than 21 million Beetles were sold worldwide during its 50+ years in production.
Volkswagen of America was established to sell the brand’s vehicles in 1958, right in time for both the Beetle and the “microbus” to become key members of the U.S. counterculture. That said, VW slowly but surely moved upmarket over the years and now brings its heritage-inspired vibe to many modern models, including some built here in the United States. It’s also worth noting that the Volkswagen Group has grown into a major global automaker that owns not only the Volkswagen brand but Porsche, Audi, Lamborghini, Bentley, Bugatti, and others.
