What happens if I can’t buy a new car just yet?
Give any car a longer life by simply sticking to the service schedule and doing regular maintenance. If you are worried about the cost of maintaining your car, consider investing in an Extended Warranty
through MotorHappy. With an Extended warranty, your budget is protected against the risk of mechanical or electrical failures.
Once you’ve made the decision to purchase a new car and you’ve worked out your budget, your next question should be: Do I buy new or used?
It is possible to get good new car deals, especially towards the end of the year when so many car dealerships are offering specials, but brand new cars are more expensive than used cars, and let’s not forget they depreciate the minute you drive them off the lot. One of the greatest advantages of buying a new car is that you can choose colour and any other trimmings right from the start. Not to mention that new cars come with a Service Plan which helps you save money in the long run.
Most of the time, buying a previously-loved car is the most affordable option, however it’s important to do some research before you buy the car. Buying from a dealership provides you with a certain level of protection, and under the Consumer Protection Act, the seller is forced to declare any known defect to a potential buyer.
