Looking to buy a new car can be a heady experience and it is quite common to make decisions based on emotion rather than practicality. So to avoid a bad car-buying decision, here are four questions to ask yourself the next time you step into a dealership for your next car.

  1. What type of car fits into my lifestyle?

You will already have an estimated budget for your new car to work with. This vehicle will have to offer value by accommodating the needs of your lifestyle as well as being a mode of transport to and from work and shopping. Do you need a family-friendly vehicle or, maybe a practical vehicle with towing capabilities? Do you go off-roading often or on epic road trips, then a SUV may suit.

  1. Which is more suitable – a new or used car?

Both options have their own unique set of pros and cons. For example, while a new car comes fresh off the production line with a factory warranty they are the pricier option, used cars on the other hand are generally more affordable and the possibility of buying a car with all desired features is greater.

  1. What are the add-on costs you will be paying for?

This question is more relevant to new car purchases. Often buyers get caught out with a higher cost than the initial value of the price tag. This is because in addition to price of vehicle, there are other add-on fees to factor in such as: registration costs, sales tax and documentation fees.

  1. Can I afford this model?

Fuel usage, insurance costs and maintenance costs will vary, depending on the model and make of the vehicle you choose.

If you already own a car and need to replace it, think about that you like about your car and those areas you find it wanting and factor these considerations into your next purchase.
