3 Signs it is Time to Purchase a New Car

You love your car. You take great care of it, and it has treated you well over the years. Unfortunately, there will come a time when you need to move on.

Deciding whether or not you should keep your current vehicle or buy a new one can be a challenge. If you are on the fence, here are three signs that could push you towards a new vehicle:

1. Your car is no longer safe. If for any reason you are questioning the safety of your car, it is time to make a change. An unsafe vehicle could increase the chance of being involved in an accident. An unsafe vehicle could leave you stranded on the side of the road.

2. Your life has changed. Remember the days when driving a sports car was all that mattered to you? Back in your single days, this made a lot of sense. For those who have children, however, a sports car is no longer the right choice. Instead, it is time to consider a larger vehicle, such as an SUV or minivan.

3. Repair costs are getting out of control. Everybody has to spend money on their vehicle from time to time. This includes basic maintenance and repairs. When this becomes a monthly expense, it is time to consider a change.
