When to buy a new car is a big decision. Whether it is buying a used vehicle or new one, there are lots of things to consider when making this decision:
A vehicle should be viewed as a longer-term investment. If you have saved enough money for a good used car or a decent down payment on a new car or lease, you are able to think about a different vehicle. This amount should be enough to ensure you are buying a quality used vehicle, or to get a better deal on a new one.
If you have not saved enough money then you might be better off staying with the vehicle you have. Depending on the condition of your existing vehicle, you might be able to sell it privately. Do not expect to get as much with a trade-in as you would with a private sale.
The next thing to consider when deciding on a new or different car purchase is what you will be doing with the vehicle and how it will be utilized by you and your family. Think about your needs and the available vehicles that might fit your situation.
If your older vehicle requires extensive service and repairs, you must determine whether you would be better off putting that money toward a new purchase. You might also find that your family, work, or other situation has changed your vehicle and driving needs, so this may be a good time to trade or add a vehicle. Think about the long-term implications when buying a car, whatever your decision.
