I'm thinking of buying a new car... Please share your experience with me...A new car or a used car for the same price?
Hello Tala, well it depends on your budget!! and how much money you are planning to pay for maintenance annually.
in my opinion i think buying a second hand Mercedes or BMW is the best choice.
It depends on some factors
Like , are you planning to change the car any time soon
In less than 5 years?
If yes I don't think buying a brand new car is a good idea because you will lose more money, of course it depends also on the brand but even so if you sell your car in the first 3 years after buying it new you will lose much
If you know how to find a really good used car then go for it, my best advice is to try and find a car that was bought and maintained in the agency with good mileage or even just a car with low mileage.
I bought my car in 2007 and it was a 2007 Tiida with 20,000 km, I saved more than 3000 JDs
For example in the past few weeks I saw someone selling his fully loaded 2011 Kia optima that done only 5000 km for 22,000 although its price is about 27k at the agency, and I don't think he will be successful in selling it for 22k.
It depends your daily/monthly drive, if your monthly drive is less than 1000 km, prefered a used one. You can find couple of years old well maintained cars with reasonable price, as the first two years of a new car will lose a big amount.
i am currently looking for a car as well and after seeing the prices of brand new cars. i decided to buy a good second hand car.
i mean if a new kia is now something like 18k!
so ill be looking for a 2nd hand japanese car which is more durable and better to maintain.
Good luck with your car hunt
buying abrand new car will definitely cut the costs of the maintainance that you HAVE to do the first you buy a second hand car... depends on the spare parts prices it might reach the 500 JD for changing oils and breaks.. etc
when u buy a new car u will forget about all that for at least 2 years by getting ur car to its agnet.. yet u have the price to consider for the brand new car and the used ones and if ur palnning to keep that car for more tahn 4 years at least :D
