Making a wrong choice could be cost you a bit. There 3 things that anyone can do to ensure you don’t buy something that you will regret
Buying a new car is exciting but it can also come with a lot of things that leave us unsure. In Australia, there are over 60 brands with 300 models to choose from. Making a wrong choice could be cost you a bit. There 3 things that anyone can do to ensure you don’t buy something that you will regret:
- Do your research
- Check for warranty
- Ask a car savvy friend for help
Doing your research
We all use Google to search for the closest places to eat so it’s worth doing the same for a car that we plan to keep for the next couple of years. Here are some questions that you should ask that will get you started:
- How much space does my family need in the car?
- What is my budget for this car?
- What will I be using the car for?
By asking these questions, you will get a better idea of which car suits your family’s lifestyle.
For example, boot space is important to most parents since they will be carrying prams in the back. SUV’s and wagons that have more boot space will suit parents better than a small hatch.
Check for warranty
Warranty might not seem too important at the time you decide to buy but it could save you thousands. Different car brands offer different warranties.
As an example, Kia cars come with a 7 year warranty while Toyota only have 3 years. You can find out the car’s warranty period before buying by visiting their website.
Ask a car savvy friend for help
If you know of a friend that is car savvy, take them with you when visiting the dealerships. You can talk to them about how you feel about the way the car drives and compare them to other cars you are looking at. They will also help you feel more confident and make car buying less nerve wracking.
We don’t buy new cars everyday but when you do, it’s worth doing your research, checking for warranty period and asking a friend for car help. These could save you thousands.
