There comes a time when your trusty car will start having problems more often than usual you’ll start racking up some hefty repair bills more often than you’d want. At this point, it’s time to do some serious maths on whether it is still practical to have your car repaired.
In instances where repairs almost amount to your monthly car payment or costs you more than half of the car’s market value, it is best to buy another car rather than have the faulty car repaired. Another instance where getting a new car is more sensible is if the repair won’t significantly extend your car’s life.
If the numbers are right, buying new cars actually gives many financial benefits. For one thing, the warranty is still intact and comes from the manufacturer with no extra cost. Another benefit, is that there are a lot of attractive finance rates for new cars.
Newer car models are more fuel efficient than their older counterparts, giving you savings on a daily/weekly basis. Plus, if maintained properly, they require little or no repairs in their first years.
Buying a brand new car isn’t the only option to cut on impractical car repair bills. Slightly used cars can also cost you less in repairs. If you seek relatively new used cars, you can buy a fuel efficient model as well. You have to ensure, however, that you buy your car from a reputable and trustworthy car dealer.
