I am the type of person who consumes a considerable amount of energy before purchasing something, esp. expensive stuff. Like say when buying a computer, while some people only think about how much money they can shell out, which is not bad at all, I usually consider the specs and performance first and then the budget comes next. In the long run, canvassing, comparing and doing a little bit of research before buying will not only save you money, but you’ll most likely end up buying something that will last longer.
Years from now, I would really like to buy my own car. Here’s the problem, I am not very ‘car literate’. What I understand about cars is that they come with different styles – luxury, compact, mini, sports car, van and pick up. I’m sure, most of you doesn’t know much about cars as well. Well, here are some helpful tips to help you when buying a car:
Before going to your car dealers, take some time to do some comparison shopping first. Don’t get too naive, don’t buy something just because you like its color or design. Pick up a copy of automobile magazines that compare different models and know what you really want. Is it just for you or for your family? Do you need a two-door, four door or van? If you need something that you can use on short trips, like going to/from your office, a smaller car is an excellent choice. If you want a fancy luxury car to go back and forth to your jobs, lexus is an excelent choice. With the comfort and safety it offers, you’ll never go wrong with a Lexus.
Next to consider is the budget. How much money do you have? Of course, the more expensive it is, the better. The cost may be higher, but, it will pay itself back in a few years by gasoline and maintenance you can save.
My ultimate dream car is still in my dreams LOL. It could wait, I guess. Right now, I’m considering of buying a house and lot first. Charing!
