Is Your Vehicle A Good Fit For Your Needs?

Is Your Vehicle A Good Fit For Your Needs?

You don’t need anyone to tell you how important your choice of vehicle can be to your lifestyle. For most people, it’s an essential tool for getting around safely, and for some, it’s even a primary tool in their career or business. Are you concerned that your vehicle isn’t suitable for you and thinking about replacing it? Then how do you know whether it’s a good fit for your needs?

Is it affordable?

First of all, you need to consider the costs of the vehicle. This goes beyond the sticker price, but rather should incorporate how much you’re likely to pay for it each month and how easily you can fit that into your budget. However, you also need to account for fuel costs, the likely costs of repairs, as well as how the car will affect your insurance rates to figure out the true running costs of the car.

Is it safe?

Safety should be a primary concern for any driver. How your car protects you comes in a few distinct forms. First of all, there’s the reality of how it protects you from collisions. Vehicles come with safety ratings based on how well they handle impacts from all sides so be sure to take this into account. Then there are safety additions that you can purchase for the car to help, such as sensors to offer warnings when about to impact surrounding objects or environmental features. Even if a car lacks some of these safety features as standard, if you’re willing to pay a little more, you can enjoy the peace of mind you need.

Is it suitable for your environment?

Think about where you like (and thus where you’re likely to drive the vehicle) and how well it suits your needs. If you’re in a city, then compact cars can help you maneuver more easily and even make it easier to park. Those living in more rural areas with more rugged terrain are instead more likely to benefit from choices like an off road truck. This is a simplification of how your environment shapes the best car for you, but a lot of drivers find it to be true.

Is it practical?

Aside from how well it fits your environment, you need to consider how well it fits your needs. The experience of driving it and liking how it handles is important, yes, but is it more important than making sure it has enough easy-to-access seating for you and your family? Or that it has cargo space to make sure that you can bring everything that you need with you? Consider your practical needs with the vehicle first and foremost to help you narrow your list down into a range that you’re not likely to find yourself frustrated with before too long. Of course, there are practical car accessories that can help solve some of the issues even if the car itself does not.

To make sure that you’re driving the vehicle that’s right for you, you need a good idea of your priorities. The tips above can help you put them into some order, but what matters most amongst them is still your call.

How To Choose Your Next Car

How To Choose Your Next Car

When you are buying a car you will be faced with a lot of different decisions that you will need to make. The car you choose is a major financial commitment. Ideally, you will want a car that will last you for a while, and one that will be cost-effective, and reliable. In order to make the right decisions, you will need to weight quite a bit up. 

New Vs. Used

A major decision that you will need to make is whether you are going to buy a new or used model. Both have their advantages and their disadvantages, and you will need to make the decision based on your own personal situation. 

New cars will come with a manufacturers guarantee. Although things can go wrong with new cars, they are generally covered for anything major. This means that you should not have to worry about dealing with any big maintenance issues anytime soon. 

The downside to a new car is that it will very quickly lose its value. Within the first year, it will have lost the biggest percentage of the price you paid for it. 

A used car, on the other hand, can vary dramatically in terms of quality and price. Once a car is more than a couple of years old, it will have dropped in value considerably and this is often a good time to buy. 

Used cars may have maintenance issues and you obviously don’t have the benefit of the manufacturer’s warranty to fall back on. Any repairs with the vehicle will need to paid for by you. 

Check Insurance Before You Buy

Whether you plan on buying your car new or used, you will need to get the vehicle insured before you are allowed to drive it. But insurance costs can vary dramatically. Get a few quotes before you commit to buying the vehicle, as if the cost for that vehicle is too high, you may end up being out of your budget. Get quotes from a number of places and check out transparent Metromile customer reviews to ensure you are happy with the insurer. 

Road Testing The Vehicle

Whichever car you are considering, you need to road test it. You need to feel comfortable behind the steering wheel. Making sure that the car is right for you is vital. 

If you are buying a used car, your road test will let you know if there are any problems with the vehicle that you should be aware of. Listen out for strange knocking or grinding sounds, see how the car turns in the road, make sure that it sits evenly on the road and doesn’t seem abnormally bumpy when driven. The more situations you can test the car in the better. Try a few manoeuvres and drive the vehicle at a range of different speeds. The last thing that you want is to miss a glaring problem that ends up costing as much as the car to get fixed.

3 Tips for Buying a Second Hand Car

3 Tips for Buying a Second Hand Car

Choosing to buy a second-hand car for your family means you’ll need to make sure you take into account a lot of things. Sure, this choice could be better for you financially. 

Image Credit: Pexels CC0 License

Second-hand cars are of course cheaper to buy than brand new cars. The thing with second hand-cars is that you’re not the first and only owner.  You will need to look carefully at many different aspects of the car before signing on the dotted line.

Did you know that some cars are significantly more reliable than others? This applies to buying a brand new or pre-loved vehicle. The reason is that some major problems only come to light once the car has been driven for some time. 

When you add that to general wear and tear, and all of a sudden the cheaper option becomes a money pit that costs more than you would pay for a brand new car.

It can be tricky, but not impossible, to avoid the pitfalls of buying a second-hand car. Knowing the right questions to ask, what to look for and any telltale signs will help you make a well-informed choice before deciding on your new car!

Know Exactly How Much You Are Willing to Pay or Spend on Repairs.

It goes without saying that the less you pay for a car, the greater the likelihood is that it will need more repairs.

If this is what you are after, then you could end up bagging a bargain. If you want a car you can drive away instantly, it may not work out in your favour. It’s never a bad thing to be able to modify a car to exactly how you want it to be. If this is the case, the less you pay the better. It is important to be able to invest in the proper car parts for a project like this. Remember to look around for auto quotes that cover any major modifications you make to the car to make sure you are driving legally.

The average price point for a good reliable pre-loved vehicle in the US is currently $2,500. Of course, this doesn’t guarantee you will get a reliable car, but it is good starting to consider when you start looking.

Do Your Research.

You need to look at more than just the exterior paint job when it comes to buying a second-hand car. Lift the hood, and get a good look at what is going on underneath. Check online for reviews of cars that you’ve got your eye on to see what previous and current owners of that model have to say. Check for any known defects or mechanical problems that might become evident on some models when doing your research.

If you’re after a car that’s going to serve you well, it pays to check its reliability before taking it out. No one wants to breakdown on the highway in a car they have just purchased!

Don’t Trust The Sales Patter!

The job of a car salesman is literally, to sell the car. Chances are, they will be very good at their job and may omit facts, gloss over any issues or promise you things to get you to buy.

If possible, take someone who is familiar with the mechanics of a car to check it out. That way you can be more confident in your purchase before leaving the forecourt.

4 Mind-Changing Features Of Electric Cars You Didn’t Know’

4 Mind-Changing Features Of Electric Cars You Didn’t Know’

Pixabay – CC0 Licence

If you’re a petrolhead, the idea of an electric car won’t appeal. There isn’t enough romanticism like there is with a traditional combustion engine. You might not be a car-enthusiast either, yet you still won’t buy one because the price tag is pretty steep. Anyway, you’ve heard bad things about electric cars that put you off investing in one.

Let’s face it – nobody wants to stop ten times on a short trip to recharge the battery. It’s ludicrous! However, as they’re starting to make their way into the market, it’s essential to understand the ins and outs of electric vehicles before dismissing. After all, you might find that what you believe to be weaknesses are strengths, or that they were myths all along.

With that in mind, check out the features of electric cars that you didn’t know below. Any of the following might change your mind and revolutionize your lifestyle.

You Shouldn’t Worry About Charging The Battery

Probably the biggest problem you think you’ll have is charging the battery regularly. The idea of stopping off every thirty minutes isn’t a good one, and it’s tempting to believe the hype. However, it’s nothing more than a myth, and the stats back this up pretty convincingly.

For starters, a standard electric car battery can go over 200 miles before it needs plugging in. And, that’s not at the top end of the scale. Some models, such as the Model 3 Tesla, average out at 300-plus miles. In comparison, your daily mileage is likely to be fewer than 50 miles. So, you can theoretically go all week (almost) without having to recharge the battery.

Mileage does differ depending on the vehicle, so be sure to double-check before you drive it off the lot.

But If You Are, You Can Plan Accordingly

The rebuttal to the mileage argument is that everything changes when you go on long journeys, and the last thing you want is to run out of juice in the middle of nowhere. If there isn’t a charge point, which could be the case if you’re not in a liberal state, there’s not much you can do to rectify the situation.

Thankfully, there’s no reason to take any risks with a Tesla route planner. All you have to do is to input your trip into the system and let it show you where the best chargers are along the way. As long as you don’t take any detours, you’ll know exactly where and when to stop in case of an emergency. You might think it’s more effort than a typical car, yet the same thing can happen if you’re not prepared.

EVs encourage you to be more organized and efficient, and those aren’t bad things!

Maintenance Costs Should Be Lower

One thing all motorists hate is the expense of running a car. It’s the reason why some drivers turn to motorbikes! If paying a couple of grand up front wasn’t enough, you can also expect to shell out thousands more during the length of your ownership. Sadly, traditional vehicles tend to breakdown, and you need to repair yours if you want it back on the roads.

What’s fantastic about EVs is that they are more energy-efficient. This is because they use regenerative braking to funnel power back to the battery. A side-effect of this is that braking is a lot more gentle, and, therefore, the brakes won’t suffer from wear and tear as much. Usually, these factors aren’t covered by warranties, so you have to pay for the repairs out of your pocket. 

With an electric car, the fact that the brakes are less worn means there’s no need to worry about expensive maintenance bills.

Speed Isn’t An Issue

Going fast isn’t common because roads are lined with cars and limits prevent motorists from driving dangerously. Still, you might like the idea of putting your foot down and racing away into the night. With an electric vehicle, you can do it as you would normally. 

If anything, some EVs are quicker than standard cars. Tesla’s ‘Insane’ and ‘Ludicrous’ modes let it hit 60 mph in less than 3.5 seconds. The reason it’s worth mentioning is down to weight. You might be aware that electric cars are heavier as they involve more complicated and bulky materials. Regardless, it has no bearing on speed whatsoever, and you’ll still be able to put the pedal to the metal if you feel that way inclined.

Electric cars are new, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to take away from your experience. Wouldn’t you want a vehicle that is fast, efficient, and affordable to run?

Irresistible Reasons To Buy A Used Car

Irresistible Reasons To Buy A Used Car

Image 

Today we are talking about choosing a new car but instead of heading to a showroom, choosing a used model. Used cars can be just as good as new and often you will save a ton of money on your purchase. Here are some of the top reasons why you should choose a used car this year.

Used cars

No matter your reasons for buying a new car, it is incredibly important to consider the resale value of the car in years to come. When you purchase a car you will often be able to sell it on and part exchange it for a new one years down the line. This means when you sell your car you are also partially paying for a new one. New cars are great, but the label ‘NEW’ only lasts until you sit behind the wheel and from this point onwards the value of the car will drop significantly. However, if you are to choose a used car instead, you will see a steady decrease in value over the time you own the car and you’ll likely be able to sell it for not much less than you bought it.

More for the money

Shopping for a new car can be incredibly exciting as a prospect until you realise how expensive all of your favourite models are. Once you take a dive into car shopping you will soon realise that many of the options you hoped to buy are out of your price range or carry a steep insurance premium. This can narrow your options massively and make you wish you had kept your old car. However, if you filter your search for used cars, you might find that the make and model you want is within your price range and this can open up a whole world of doors for you. Used cars are cheaper and therefore easier to buy, and this likely will mean that you can get a better car for your money, such as Mercedes approved used cars or used versions of your other favourite brands.

Lower Insurance

Even if you can afford to buy your dream car, the biggest hurdle which can get in the way is your insurance costs. Insurance is very expensive and it can even be more expensive than the car itself. When shopping for a car the insurance cost might stop you from getting what you want, however when choosing a used car you may be able to avoid the issues. Used cars are worthless and therefore are cheaper to insure, so this is always a great option for you when you want to buy a fancy new model.

Sedan Wars: Have The Japanese Trumped The Germans?

Sedan Wars: Have The Japanese Trumped The Germans?

For about 5 years now, the crossover has ruled the roost. This concept is quite frankly, one of the best that the automobile industry has ever invented. Somebody decided it was a good idea to merge the family SUV with a hatchback. Whoever they are, you can bet on it that they were given a raise and a promotion. It’s been an amazing seller, because families have the headroom of an SUV as well as the wheelbase and height, but they have a generally smaller or compact frame than a traditional SUV. Inherently they have a sportier feel, drive great on the highways but feel just as at home in the city. So why on earth would you want a sedan these days? The sedan is not like the SUV or hatchback, it’s perhaps the original family car. Long, spacious and fun to drive, here’s why the sedan is not taking the rise of the crossover lying down.

Aerodynamics and style

A number of sedan models have always been a top choice for car owners. Jaguar’s XF has held the title of kind of the sedans since 2010, but it’s more of a premium option. The Italian’s joined the fight with the Alfa Romeo Guilla, a 503bhp monster with a thumping 3.0-liter V6. The Germans improved their Mercedes A-class and Audi A6 but the overall design has become a bit stale. The Japanese however, have perhaps came out with a world-beater in the Mazda 3. These models can be found in specialist dealer websites like https://www.rentonmazda.com/ as well as some of Mazda’s convertible sports cars. They have the highly praised 2019 Mazda 3 which comes in a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder engine. With an automatic transmission and a miles per gallon performance of 26 in the city and 35 on the highway, it seems to have the complete package.

Germany’s big brother

For a long time, there has been a competition of who can wear the crown of best sedan. In many people’s opinion, the Jaguar XF has been the champion for almost 10 years. The previous champion which also wore the crown for 10 years was the BMW M5. Now it seems like the brand has come to the conclusion that this model has seen it’s best days and decided to make it’s jewel, the M6. The BMW 6-series is a large and longer big brother to the 5-series. It’s been given the name ‘gran-coupe’ but we all know it’s a sedan. It’s a shame because it originally was a coupe and was seen as BMW’s answer to the Audi A5. it’s not meant to be a sedan from the ground up, so it’s got cramped interior, horrible fuel economy and a wide body. On the plus side it’s got performance, high-quality upholstery and great handling. It pays a price for it’s good looks with less room on the inside.

Japan has such a great history of car manufacturing, it’s nice to see the Mazda name make a big comeback. The German’s still make fantastic cars, but sedans might not be their best class at the moment.

Looking For New Wheels? A Guide To Stress-Free Car Buying

Looking For New Wheels? A Guide To Stress-Free Car Buying

If you took a moment to Google new or used cars, you’d be greeted with hundreds of links and adverts. While it’s fantastic to have a choice as a buyer, being inundated with offers and ads can be confusing. With so many makes and models to choose from, how do you go about finding the right car for you? If you’re shopping around for new wheels, here are some tips to make the buying process a breeze.

Image from https://www.flickr.com/photos/p300njb/41030823175

Setting a budget

Perhaps the most important step to take when embarking upon a search for a new car is setting a budget. Buying a car costs money, and it’s always beneficial to work out how much you can spend long before you fall head over heels for a car that is way out of your price range. Figure out how much you have available either to pay out as a lump sum or to put down a deposit and then pay the remaining costs monthly. If you’re looking online, you can set filters to ensure that the results match your budget, and you can organize results based on price. If you’re considering getting a car on finance and spreading the cost over a period of a few years, ensure you can afford the monthly payments, and shop around for deals and special offers. You might find that some dealerships put a contribution towards your down payment, for example. Once you’ve got a budget, you can focus on vehicles that match your requirements.

New versus used

If you’re on the hunt for a new car, think about whether you want a brand new vehicle straight off the forecourt or a used car. New cars have the advantage of being in pristine condition, they won’t have previous owners, and you may have more control over customization options, but it is worth noting that new vehicles lose value very quickly. As you drive away from the dealership, your car will have already lost value. Used cars may not give you the flexibility in terms of color, trim or features, but they often offer better value for money. If you know exactly what kind of car you’d like, but you can’t afford a new model, look for nearly new cars instead. When shopping for a used car, take care when buying from private sellers and be prepared to negotiate with dealers. It’s wise to research in advance to make sure you pay what the car is worth. Taking a car out for a test drive is always a good idea. You can get a feel for the vehicle, gauge comfort and performance levels and see how it runs.

Creating a wish list

Every driver is different, and some people have different priorities and requirements to others. When you’re exploring your options, think carefully about what matters to you most. Are you looking for a family-friendly vehicle with plenty of space and a flawless safety record, or are you searching for a sporty number that offers a thrilling ride? Do you need a versatile car or truck you can use for work, or is fuel economy your main concern? Create a wish list based on your individual preferences. This will help you narrow down the options.

Researching

Seeing a car in a showroom or on a garage forecourt is very different to driving a car day in, day out, and this is why research is important. Take your time to compare different contenders, learn more about various makes and models and seek expert advice. If you’re thinking about buying a Chevy, visit an experienced dealer, look at the models that tick the boxes, and take a test drive. Ask questions, get recommendations, and don’t be too hasty when it comes to making a decision. If you don’t have a specific make in mind, visit different dealerships or go to a vendor that sells cars from multiple manufacturers. If you have a short list, mull over the pros and cons, and don’t forget to ask about prices. There may be some room for maneuver if you’re prepared to haggle.

Booking a test drive

Looking good is not the only criteria that concerns prospective car buyers. Every model is different, and you might find that some cars are a lot more comfortable than others, some are easier to handle, and some are lighter, quicker, and more responsive. Booking a test drive offers a host of benefits. You can really get a feel for a car when you’re driving around, and you can compare how you feel with other driving experiences. You may find that the car that was leading the way before the test drive doesn’t meet your expectations when you’re behind the wheel, and this is why doing a trial run can be useful. You’ll also get a better idea of the space available inside the vehicle, and you can learn more about the features and gadgets.

Closing the deal

If you’ve found the one, it’s time to close the deal. If you’re taking out a contract and paying monthly, it’s always beneficial to compare prices from different dealers before signing on the dotted line. If you’re paying up front for a new or used car, look out for special offers and try and bring the price down. In many cases, the ticket price is negotiable, and if you’re prepared to drive a hard bargain, you could save yourself a substantial amount of money.

Has your car seen better days, or is your current contract drawing to a close? If you’re searching for a new car, shopping doesn’t have to be stressful. Set a budget, think about what you want and take your time to look at different makes and models, take some for a spin and weigh up the pros and cons. Shop around for the best prices, visit reputable dealerships only, compare used and new cars and give negotiating a go. It’s always useful to be open-minded and to make sure you have all the information you need before you make a final decision.

Ready to Change Your Car? Here’s How to Add Up the Costs

Ready to Change Your Car? Here’s How to Add Up the Costs

In case you decided it is time for new wheels, and would like to make sure that you are changing for the better, you might have compared various models and designs before. There is one thing you probably didn’t check, though; the cost of buying the car and maintaining its condition, or keeping it on the road. Most of us only look at the price, but there are some hidden costs that can have surprises for you. Find out more below.

Purchase Price

Of course, you will have to compare the different deals and offers, and ensure that they are giving you the best value for your money. It is hard to compare the deals like-for-like, as every dealership has some kind of special offer that will be appealing to different buyers. Some will offer interest-free credit, others will throw in extras, but – most of the time – this is included in the final price, and is just a marketing trick.

Credit Cost

You might think that the car will only cost you $7,000, but after you have paid the fees for the broker, the interest for 3-5 years, you might end up paying much more. That is why you will have to learn how to compare the different car finance deals before you sign the dotted line. After all, you don’t want to buy the vehicle for more than it is worth, and that is what you do if you are taking on expensive credit.

Depreciation

If there is one hidden expense, it is the negative equity of your car. Once you drive a new car out of the salon, you have instantly lost hundreds. Before you choose your make and model, it is important that you check what is the depreciation rate of the car, so you can find out how much you can get for it when you finally decide to change it.

Insurance and Tax

Image via Wikipedia

If you are buying a used car, you will have to check the insurance and tax rate before you make your final decision. You will have to pay out of your pocket to keep your vehicle on the road. Older and less energy efficient models will cost more to tax, but their insurance cost might be lower, due to their value. Make sure that you opt for safety features, as this can reduce your insurance premium.

Maintenance

To get the best value out of your car, when you drive it, and when you sell it on, you will have to keep it maintained. There are several comparison blogs that will tell you which makes and models are the cheapest to service. If you are looking for a reliable German car, you can check out the prices on Mercedes Benz mechanic services before you commit to buy.  

Changing your car is a financial decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Add up all the above costs to ensure you are getting the best value for your money.

Why You Should Buy A Used Car

Why You Should Buy A Used Car

Photo by John-Mark Smith from Pexels

Life can be expensive. No matter what your job, whether you have kids or where you live, it is important to budget out your expenses. A car is an essential part of many people’s lives. Getting you to work, the kids to school or just to the shops, you need a car that you can rely on and you know won’t breakdown in a moments notice.

Buying a car may seem like a daunting and costly process. When searching for a new car, your first thought might be “maybe I need a brand new car”. As nice as it is to have a new car, at times, it may not be practical in terms of your expenses. Buying a new car will always be the more costly option. And the sad thing is, as soon as you drive it out of the showroom, its price starts to depreciate. With used cars, not only do they have a lower price tag making it more enticing to buy, but they are more likely to keep their value for longer.

An inevitability of buying any car is that you may from time to time have to purchase parts for it. One benefit of a used car is that you can often find the parts easier – as more places will stock them, and you will be able to pick them up for a more reasonable price as they are older.

Whether you are on a hunt for a used Hyundai, a used Mini Cooper or a used Fiat 500 (to name a few popular options), there will be plenty of places out there that sells them. From apps such as Autotrader to showrooms, you can pick up a reliable car at a price that won’t damage your wallet. Another plus point of used cars is that you can also usually pick them up straight away from wherever you have bought it from – in comparison to purchasing them brand new, in which you usually have to wait for the car to be ready to pick up. It’s important that you do your research however, as you want to make sure that the used car is still worth the money you paid.

Older, used cars also have the advantage of lower insurance and tax – saving you much needed money in the long term. Yes, this of course does depend on the age of the driver, but overall it would cost you more to be insured on a brand new Mercedes than a 15-year-old Ford KA – for example. Most cars these days also look pretty similar with features that you will (let’s be honest) never use. So with used cars that are a little older, you may have more options to choose from. Nothing compares to vintage cars, simple yet beautiful, they showcase the driver’s personality.

Whether you are on the hunt for your first car, a family car or a runaround, a used car is always a worthy option. Cheaper in the long run and generally easier to repair, they are perfect for those who don’t have endless amounts of money in their pocket and want to keep on top of their finances.
