When you’re buying a car, there are many things you need to take into consideration:
· What am I going to be using the car for?
· Will the insurance premium be manageable?
· How many miles a year will I be doing?
· How many passengers do I need to carry?
· How much am I comfortable paying each month?
This last question is crucial; you need to work out the monthly budget for your car and stick to it, being tempted to go over your budget, especially when it’s £100 to £150 a month, can result in real financial difficulties and completely stop you enjoying your car.
If you’re a young driver, you need to factor in the cost of car insurance, which, until you’re 25 years old, is very expensive and increases the larger and more powerful the engine is.
For a £100 to £150 a month budget, there are cars, such as the Volkswagen up! for the man or woman about town; smaller, but perfectly formed and kind on your pocket!
A small, practical city car, the up! offers more space than you realise and a great deal of comfort, available with payments under £150 per month.
