It’s almost always an exciting time when a person makes the first major purchase of their life. Usually, in the United States, cars are an adult’s initial foray into financial responsibility (if you don’t count student loans). Many factors affect the overall decision process of buying a car, and here are some guidelines for first-time car buyers.

Have fun: One of the most common mistakes people make when buying a new car is stressing themselves out. The truth of the matter is there’s a lot more to enjoy than to be bummed about like the great selection of cars as well as the financing rates that translate to great deals all around.

Test drive: First-time car buyers should test drive the vehicles that they fancy. On the outside, sure, a car looks enticing, but then there are factors like comfort and ease of driving that can only be confirmed through a test drive. Test driving a vehicle can also save a person a ton of regret.

Preferences: People should list down what they want in a car and go for it. People ought to ask questions geared towards this list and keep an eye out for all those things that they want. When they finally find a car that has most of the items on the preference list, they’ll be happy.

Advantages of buying new

  • For obvious reasons, it is the safer choice. A new car has not been exposed to accidents or misuse. It is much less prone to technical problems and requires less need for maintenance.
  • Choosing a new car means there are more models and designs to choose from. The latest technology and features also come with new vehicles.
  • While opting for a new car entails a higher purchasing cost, in the long run, it can prove to be more cost-effective for many reasons. These include higher fuel efficiency, lower upkeep costs, warranty with longer and more extensive coverage, and higher resale value.

Advantages of buying secondhand

  • As mentioned above, new cars are more expensive than secondhand ones. Those who have an insufficient amount of money to purchase a new one or have no access to financing can opt for a used car instead.
  • Cars have one of the quickest depreciation rates because they are heavily used and exposed to many elements. With a used car, depreciation is not that much of a concern.
  • Insurance costs and personal property taxes are significantly lower for used cars compared to new ones, which means more savings.
