There are a number of different factors to take into consideration when choosing which new car to buy.Here are a few tips to help you in making the right choice for your needs.In trying times, affordability and monthly budgets become a more important factor in decision making.Be disciplined and buy the right vehicle to fit into your budget, don’t get carried away and buy that sports car because it sounds so good.
That being said, don’t let budget be the only factor you look at when buying your vehicle. If the vehicle doesn’t perform the way you want it to, or doesn’t have the features that you want, you will not enjoy it as much and it will become a purchase that you are never happy with and you may regret buying it.
Don’t scrimp on safety features, especially if you are buying a car for family use, or for a student. Our Opel’s have some of the highest safety standards available for passenger vehicles, ranking highly on the EuroNCAP scorecards.
Make sure that your vehicle is not going to cost you too much to maintain. Ensure that average fuel costs and average servicing costs fit into your budget. All new Opel’s come with a 5 year or 120 000kms warranty and a comprehensive service plan for 3 years or 60 000kms or 5 years or 90 000kms.
Fuel consumption figures are readily available from the internet, our sales people, or as a sticker on the vehicle itself.Also make sure that the vehicle is suitable for its purpose, don’t buy a hatchback when you know you will be travelling on roads that require 4×4 or a diff lock. You will spend more money in the long run on repairs and maintenance.Here at CMH Opel East Rand, we have a vehicle that suits all of your needs, in our New and Used Car departments.
