Car Purchase Considerations

Owning any new kind of vehicle can be daunting territory even for the experienced driver. There are so many options to choose from when deciding how to pay for a new car and 100’s of makes and models to pick from. Whether it’s your first car, or your fifteenth, the details matter.

I have already started consulting family and friends as to their opinions on the best types of cars and what I should be looking for. I have compiled a list of must-dos and am currently shopping around for insurance and auto loan quotes. I have also enjoyed shopping online in order to narrow down color and size.

The ultimate questions are: whether to lease or borrow, buy privately or from a dealer, and whether to try out car auctions or steer clear of them. So far, opinions vary on all of these so I will continue gather information to make the best decision for me.

Since cars only depreciate in value, I am leaning toward used vs. new, borrowing vs. leasing and to maybe check out a car auction or two just for fun.

So far, I am loving Toyota, Honda, Volkswagen and Kia. I will also look at American models as there are many companies with great reputations.

As for kind and color? I’m thinking small, fuel efficient, and blue!
