Bought My First Car – New car is great, now you have a chance to pick up your loved ones somewhere on an exciting road trip, or basically just hit a road. But before you go buy your first car and spend a bunch of good money, you better know what you are paying for and what are the consequences. Before it’s too late and you just buy a vehicle you do not need. Check this article out to see 6 things you wish you know before buying your new car!
Be Careful With the Seller
Every seller has a unique way to sell their car- anything like that to make you need to buy the car because you simply trust or feel sorry about them. Do not do that. That car is going to stick with you for years and you do not want to buy a leaky old machine just because you feel morally need to, thus wasting a lot of money.
Avoid Getting Involved Into a Debt
Do not let yourself get tied into a debt for a car. You will find yourself spending more money each month on something with decreasing value. No, it is not worth it. Get someone older, experienced about machines, or simply your best friend who understands cars more about you and look for a cheaper car that you can afford completely still with good condition.
Do Not Buy for Luxury Looks
Most things happen with the second condition (getting into a debt) or owning a flawful car is because the new owner tends to buy for a luxury look instead of a good condition with as less flaw as possible.
Some people even pay for a ‘sporty’ look to afford a used-car without knowing how many leaky things are sticking into that car. You do not want to be in this position because you will spend another pile of money just to fix something you never had to do (if only you pay attention more into the machine, than the looks).
Check For Signs of Damage
If you are intending on buying a used car, extra checking for signs of damage is really important. Bring friends or trusted mechanics with you to check things, such as the light, the carburetor, the brake, everything in the car and not just go for any ‘good deal’.
Look Under the Car
An experienced mechanic will surely check the below part of the car to make sure there is not risky leaking under your car. That is why you need to bring one. Or if you cannot afford for a mechanic, get some older people with experience to accompany you. If you are not experienced enough, never go buy a car all by yourself.
Get a Car Which Is Fuel Efficient
Get a car with good fuel efficiency. You will soon realize fuel will cost more than it seems to be. Worse, if you are driving in cars every day. Buying a car that does not waste fuel too much will help you save more on the next day.
Those are 6 things you have to know before purchasing a new car, because you do not want to regret anything cost thousands of dollars, right?
