Picking The Right Vehicle For You

Walk onto a car dealership lot and it won’t take more the 4 to 5 minutes before a salesman hoping to sell you a new car greets you. They will ask you questions like, “What brings you here today? “What kind of car are you looking for? “Are you looking to trade in?” “What kind of payments do you want to make? You usually respond with, “I’m just browsing” to get them off your back. In realty you wouldn’t be on the lot if you weren’t at least thinking about buying a car. All the salesman is doing is trying to find out if you are really a buyer or browser.

What you really need to know is what kind of vehicle are you looking for. No one has that answer better than you. Unless you just won the lottery and your first purchase is a new car, which according to Edmunds.com would be the Lamborghini Aventador, you’re probably looking for something you’ve seen on the road or seen in an advertisement.

So what is the right vehicle for you? Do you drive to and from work everyday in traffic? Do you have a large family? Do you use your vehicle for work such as a work truck? Do you use your vehicle to transport clients? Do you live in a climate where 4-wheel drive would be safer on the roads you travel?

There are so many questions you have to answer before you’re ready to make that purchase but none is more important than “do you fit in it properly?” What if you’re so cramped in your car that your knees are hitting the dash – or your legs are so short you can’t reach the pedals without the steering wheel hitting your stomach – What will happen if you have a frontend collision? If you can’t fit in your vehicle, what makes you think you’ll be able to react and steer out of a bad situation if you can’t even turn the wheel cause its rubbing on your… Food for thought when you buy a car!
