Once you decide to replace your current car, the next question to ask yourself is: Should I buy new or used? Here are a few questions from Alfa Romeo USA of Larchmont that can clear the confusion and make the decision slightly easier:
Do you have a down payment or a trade-in with equity?
If your credit is good, you may have fewer problems buying a new car with little or no down payment than buying a used vehicle. That is because many manufacturers offer incentives for new cars that simply aren’t available in the used-car market. These are typically in the form of rebates, cash incentives and discounted financing. Financing a used car will almost always require money down, whether in cash or a trade-in with equity.

A car is a solid investment, so it needs quite a bit of time and effort to maintain it for good performance, mileage and also a good resale value. As the car engine ages, its performance level decreases and the oil starts to break down at an increasing rate. Over time, the seals break down, gaskets become very brittle, and oil consumption increases. This is just one example of a vehicle problem, but with a few pointers, you can expect great performance from your car for a long time.
Here are some general tips for automobile maintenance from Roberts Chrysler Dodge:
Make it a point to change your car’s engine oil every 3 months or 3,000 Kilometers, whichever comes first. This is an important procedure, as the engine is the heart of your car and motor oil is the lifeblood. One isn’t able to function without the other, so be very diligent with your oil-change schedule.

You should never buy a car without going for a test drive as it gives you an opportunity to check out various features, feel comfortable while driving, and then determine if it is suitable for you or not.
Here are a few questions to ask yourself from Reedman Toll Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram.
What do you want from the car?
Be aware of whether you often go on long road trips, or if you are mainly stuck in traffic on your daily commute, or if you take your car on vacations where it is exposed to adverse weather and road conditions. Within reason, prepare to replicate your daily routine while on your test drive. For instance, if you primarily drive on freeways, get your car on a freeway to see how it handles high speeds and if there is lots of noise. Continue reading →
SUVs are pretty ideal for family life, as they are flexible and efficient with plenty of fun features and space.

Don’t Drive around with a Damaged Windshield
Regardless of how careful you are, the windshield of your car is bound to suffer unsightly cracks and chips, which generally occur when an object hits the glass.

Types of windshield cracks from Columbiana Chrysler Jeep Dodge
Chip or Ding
