Determine what vehicle you need

Purchasing the right vehicle to suit your needs may be more difficult than it sounds. Consider the aspects of a vehicle that are important to you, and then narrow down your choices from that point. Vehicles are driven almost every day, so having a reliable car is very important.  Maintaining a vehicle that is consistently in need of a repair can be extremely costly.  If you’re driving long distances, you may want to consider the vehicle’s fuel economy.  Also, consider passenger space, if you have a large family and need more room, looking for an SUV or mini-can could be your best options.


Be sure to inspect the vehicle’s car tires when deciding to purchase your car. New tires can be quite costly. Tires should be evenly worn and all tires should match. The condition of the tire can be determined by the surface of the tire. To test the wear of the tires, take a regular penny and place it in the groove of the tire. If you are no longer able to see Abraham Lincoln’s head on the penny, then your tires are at a safe tread depth. If you can see all of Lincoln’s head, then the tires should be replaced.

Replacing the tires may not determine whether or not you purchase the vehicle, but keep in mind if you’re buying a used car for $4000, $400 for new tires is already 10% of the cost of your vehicle.
