Two things to consider in car buying decisions
Car buyers today are keeping gas mileage at the forefront of their minds. For a lot of folks, the mileage per gallon is overriding the available options. Vehicles like the Honda Accord come to mind looking at potential new new cars to purchase. Newer hybrid vehicles like Honda Insight the are also considered by a lot of new car buyers. These are stylish, sleek and provide good gas mileage.
At some point most all of us will need to purchase a dependable vehicle. Additional considerations apply for long term survivors of domestic violence who may be in the new or used car buying market.
It's been said that new cars can be easier to finance than pre-owned vehicles. This may or may not be true. No matter which is chosen it's important to choose a vehicle with payments that fit a budget. When buying a car it's important to be upfront with your bank or finance company regarding what you can afford.
A service department with a proven track record is important for every car buyer. Having a reliable vehicle is important for everyone. Breakdown repairs are expensive and can cost lost work time. For victims of domestic violence having a reliable service department is even more important.
Dealership mechanics are trained to work on the specifics of your car. They can sometimes spot problems before they start. This can help keep the car on the road and lessens the chances of becoming stranded.
No matter which car you choose it's important to carefully select the one that’s right for you.
