If you are a new driver, having just passed your driving test recently, and you are thinking about buying your very first car, there are many factors that go into finding the most suitable car finance deal. Today, we will cover some of these aspects that will go a long way towards you finding the best option for your first vehicle.
To begin with, consider the price, and not just of the car itself. You want to make sure that you can afford the vehicle in question, thus keeping your budget at a level that is reasonable based on market prices, but also manageable depending on how much income you are making per month. But bear in mind that when you are a new driver (and especially if you are a younger driver), insurance costs will be at a high level. These costs will go down as time goes on and you prove yourself as a safe and reliable motorist, but it’s important to recognise that your first car will likely have a larger total cost due to insurance than for any other vehicle you end up driving in the future.
Next, you should consider the timing of a purchase. You don’t want to rush into buying a car just because you have your licence, as you want to think very carefully about what you are signing up for. But at the same time, it is vital to recognise what times of the year that there may be discounts on vehicles. Let’s say that there’s a model you have your eye on, but in three months’ time, you know that the next-gen vehicle will be leaving the production line. Therefore, it would make more sense to hold fire and wait, because the price of the existing-generation motor will go down, and thus it would be better to buy the car then.
The last part to remember is that, here at Rix Motors, we will help you every step of the way. We work closely with all drivers, but we provide that extra level of assistance for brand new drivers, given that it will be their first car purchase and that the process can occasionally seem a bit overwhelming. If there are any points that you find confusing, or if it can just be quite stressful to complete a purchase, we will be able to help you along the way, reducing the pressure of the situation, and making it easier, quicker and less hectic for you to end up buying the perfect first car for your needs.
