10 things to consider when buying your first brand new car

10 things to consider when buying your first brand new car

Buying your first car is a life event that people remember for a long time in their lives. First time car buyers are often overwhelmed by the number of things they might need to consider before doing so. To help guide you when making your decision we have created a checklist:

Budget
The first thing that comes to mind when buying your own car is the amount of money you would like to spend on it. It is very easy to get fascinated by a fancy over the top car that will allure you to spend more than you initially intent to. Hence, before you start looking for a car to buy, it is advisable that you set a max budget for it unless you have really  deep pockets.

Purpose
You also should know the main reason you want to buy the car. People buying a car for the first time should ask themselves, for what purpose is it going to used for primarily? For example, is it for new adventure trips, of everyday city travel, racing, or simply comfort and luxury?

Features
Once you have set a budget and are clear about the purpose you are going to use the car mostly for, you should ideally compare which car comes with more features in the same budget. These are things that you might not know that you want to begin with but will find them useful to have once you get accustomed to using them.

Body Type
The body type you select for your first car is most likely to depend on the purpose you are most likely to use it for. There are different options in car body types that cater to different consumer needs. Most common examples include sedan, hatchback and Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV).

Looks
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that’s totally true for cars. Not all people are expected to agree on how their ideal car should look and hence there are so many options available in the market. Cars are bought strongly on the basis of personal preference and hence there are colour options, and other looks related upgrades available for each car buyer.

Model
All car manufacturers bring several different car models to the market. While they might have several car models with the same body type, cars are most likely to differ in terms of looks, features and pricing.

Maintenance

It is good to know from car owners about the maintenance of the car. They are likely to give insights about how often does the car needs to visit the garage and its maintenance cost amongst other user experiences. Although it is preferable that you get these insights from someone who owns exactly the same car you are inclining to buy. If not, atleast try and get advice from someone who owns a car from the same car manufacturer.

Service Plans
The service plan provided when purchasing a new car depends on what deal the car manufacturer has to offer. Sometimes, a better deal can be secured depending what time of the year that you are making the purchase. In Dubai for example, special deals are at offering for car purchase during the holy month of Ramadan.

Warranty
All car buyers should carefully read through the warranty policy when purchasing a new car. Being completely aware about what parts of the car are covered under warranty ensures that you do not spend money unnecessarily.
 
Safety
Having a good look through all the safety features present in the car is a task of primary importance for first time car buyers. You should try and find a car that provides optimum safety features so you can feel safe and secure when on a drive in your new car. The importance of this aspect gets amplified when you know that your family will be along with you in your car. A family car ideally has extra safety features like a child lock for example, to add that extra layer of security for your loved ones.
