According to statistics, most drivers change their car once every six years, which is a pretty long period of time. To take the best out of your car in those six years, to save money and to avoid constant repairing, you’d better avoid ten mistakes many of us make when buying a car.
One day you’ll probably decide to sell your car. That’s why you have to consider some important features. According to Paint supplier PPG Industries, white is the most popular car color in the US with 35 percent of all sold vehicles. It is followed by black with 17 percent, and silver and gray that both got a 12 percent popularity.
In case you want to purchase some good old German luxury brands such as BMW or Mercedes-Benz, you have to be prepared to pay around $17,800 and $12,900 for ten years of maintenance accordingly. US popular brand Cadillac comes next with an average $12,500 maintenance cost for the same period of time.
Additional airbags, a passenger sensing system that can tell the size of the person in the seat and save smaller children in case of a crash, auto-dimming mirrors to reduce the glare coming from headlights at night, head restraints and ABS are some of the things you don’t want to save money at.
Make a check-list of features you need to check and think of where you’ll be driving your new vehicle. Try driving on the highway and park in uncomfortable conditions if that’s what you know you’ll have to do in the future. Examine everything to help yourself make the right decision.
Don’t be afraid to miss “the deal of a lifetime.” You must have noticed those come up now and then, so you shouldn’t let them pressure you into making a wrong financial decision that will affect your budget for years.


You don’t think about resale value. 0:32
Car maintenance can be expensive. 1:46
You pay for optional items. 2:50
You buy a brand new car. 3:33
You buy a car that is too big or too small. 4:03
You can’t choose between car’s prestige and technical characteristics. 4:34
You don’t examine the car. 5:19
You miss advantageous offers and discounts. 6:08
You don’t try to lower the price. 6:30
You’re in a hurry. 6:51

-First, the car brand matters: there are brands that are more or less popular among drivers. Second, you need to think about the vehicle specifications and the engine. Third, don’t forget about its color.
-Think of how much of your family budget car maintenance can make, and decide if you want to spend that much on your vehicle after you’ve purchased it.
-Some drivers don’t smoke inside their cars. In this case, they don’t need an ashtray. An additional corrosion treatment is useless as well because cars already have an anti-corrosion treatment.
-The best choice is a car model that is no more than three years old and already well-known.
-Try to predict how many times you’re going to travel by car, how many passengers will be there, and so on.
-A premium class car will give you better safety, high performance and increased comfort their manufacturers guarantee.
-Gather as much information as possible at reliable websites and among your friends, consult an independent specialist, and test drive your chosen car.
-The best time to buy a car starts in December and reaches its peak in March.
-Try to call or send emails to different dealerships saying you have a better offer and asking if they can beat it.
-Spend enough time to gather information, consulting specialists, and weighing the pros and cons.

      The residual value of the car doesn't really matter. More than a vehicle, that takes you from point A -B ,this is a ( CAR ) the one that you feel yourself driving it everyday........ Focues on features, looks, inferior, trim level, reliability, prices, safety features. If people had taken into account the residual value, then Kia and Hyundai had not had successes in the last 7 years. So Not Buy something you something like 100% because is the residual value which is about 5.5 % less. If you will trade it in, Car Dealers would make profit on you Anyway.

      Years ago when I knew exactly what we wanted I called dealerships that had what I wanted within a couple hundred miles to get them to compete for best price. I actually got that dealership to drive the vehicle to my house and we did paperwork on my dinner table. While I was I at work they drove to meet me at my home. That was a $300 charge, but saved me an 8 hour round trip drive plus I didn't have to take off work.
      I also research IIHS safety measurements not just ratings.
