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 trick in which you tell about another dealership with better prices is very useful in electronics too, if you get a $400 microwave in one shop and a $500 microwave in a trusted shop, then you may even give them the details of the other shop and then get the microwave at $350. Also, if you live in a joint family, then I suggest that you should buy all your cars from a certain dealership, so that you can negotiate prices saying you are a regular customer.

      Always buy a used 1-3 year old car. Always buy with at least 5,000-9,000 miles. Price will be much much lower then brand new.

      Make a budget and stick to it. If it's $10k, offer the salesman $8.5k or $8k then walk away....walk away. Let them sleep on it. DON'T INCREASE YOUR BUDGET.
