It’s time to get a new car; this may be your first car or an upgrade. But, you have no idea what car to get. OR you have so many options that it’s difficult to choose. Fear not! We are here to help you!

While this can be on personal preference, it comes down to two factors: How much money are you willing to spend and what the car’s aim is. Let’s break it down more. Ask yourself these questions to help you choose a car.

 

HOW MUCH CAN YOU AFFORD TO SPEND

When answering this question, be sincere with yourself. Consider how much you can spend that won’t end up putting you in debt after you buy the car. This amount could be a targeted saving, a loan, or even a part of your pay.

The option of randomly picking a car and letting the cost determine how much you should spend. But, this will only work if you possess a high budget. It is always better to decide on a specific budget – a limit you won’t exceed no matter the circumstance.

 

WHY DO YOU NEED THE CAR

The other thing you must consider is the purpose of the car. 

  • Why are you buying the car? 
  • Do you intend to use it as your source of transportation in an urban environment? 
  • Do you plan to only use it once in a while? 
  • Is it going to be a family car? 
  • Do you have a small or big family? 

 

You can decide the best car for you with the help of the answers to these questions. You may need a van or SUV if you have a big family. If it’s just you, you may be able to get a regular saloon car.

 

MAKE THE DECISION

After answering these questions, you can look online and narrow your search to a maximum of 3 vehicles that suit your needs and pocket. With this in mind, you can start looking, go to the dealership and test-drive cars, and find out what’s available within your criteria.

Make sure to ask the salesperson any questions or concerns you have about the car. Whatever you do, do not rush the purchase. Sometimes, purchasing a car takes time, so don’t say yes until you are 100% sure. If the vehicle is brand new, you will get a warranty from the dealership. However, if you are purchasing a used car, we recommend you get a qualified mechanic to test it to ensure you are not buying a lemon.

 

There may be many decent vehicle options, and the ultimate selection is simply a question of personal preference. So equip yourself with the necessary knowledge of the right car type to accommodate your budget and reason for purchase.
