Buying a Car Worthwhile

This is a sponsored post. Thanks to Cars.com. However, all thoughts are 100% my own.

Repeating myself over here. But you know we are getting a new car soon. Our current car is okay but I swear something is going to happen soon on it. There are these little things that worry me and give me huge anxiety while driving. We should be able to get a new one later this Fall, so that is a yay moment.

Which is why I am thrilled to give you all some insight on some things you should do when you are the market for your next car. Am hoping that these 3 Tips will make buying a car worthwhile for you. For me, I am the type of person that once I buy a car I want to keep it until way after its paid off. Which means when buying a car, I want it to be long-standing and the best decision possible.

Are you like that? Then read on…

Buying a Car Worthwhile

Test Driving

When it comes to this. Drive many options. Drive every single car you think you may like as your next one. Don’t leave any stone overturned. Driving as many vehicles as you can get you a real sense of what you like about the car and what you dislike.

Am lucky being a blogger and having my Wheels Wednesday segment, where I have been able to actually test cars out for long periods of time. Not everyone will be able to test for as long as periods, but trust me that testing phase is one of the most important steps.

Research

Do lots of research on the cars you are thinking about. Using Cars.com is a great way to look up all the cars you are looking at. All you need in one single stop.

Cars.com will give you the details you want. Where the car you are seeking is at in your general area. Reading honest reviews and videos of what the ins and outs of each car. It makes it so easy to find the information you are seeking for each car on your list. No more trying to search site after site for each type you are thinking about.

Plus one thing to note, you can also see if there is any active recalls on the cars you are looking at. Such great information to have when buying a car.

Financing

Plan. Plan. Plan. Do not just go out on a whim and buy a new car and go with the car lot financing. Now, they might be great. But research, go to your banks and ask about their car loans, their rates, and terms. Quite often you’ll find that they’ll have a better deal overall and will save you money in the long run. Saving money is BIG in my eyes and I hope in yours too.

Now that you have these 3 simple tips. You are ready to head out and make buying a car worthwhile.

  • Now that you’ve tested many cars, what vehicle do you plan on getting? 😉

    • We actually have it narrowed down to the Kia Niro or the Mazda CX5 – unless something else amazing and perfect comes along our way before we can buy it.
