Buying Your First Car From Alresford Garage
When you’ve just passed your test, then buying your first car is an exciting prospect, with the freedom, independence, and fun that driving offers. Although it’s an exciting time, it’s important not to get carried away and buy the first thing you set your eyes on – the costs of running, along with the safety aspects, mean that you should always make certain checks and considerations when looking for your first car.
New or used?
You’ll also need to choose between a new or a used car. The vast majority of first cars are used – they’re much more affordable to buy and insure than brand new cars, which in most cases will only be affordable through finance plans. The simplest and cheapest option for most young drivers is to buy used, and you’re bound to find a suitable car that works with your budget.
