Brand new cars are typically worth tens of thousands of dollars. Purchasing them outright is a difficult task for most people. Instead, they resort to financing to get the unit while paying the amount in small increments. This works well for some but not for others. Below are some things to consider with vehicle finance:
Having a car can make you look and feel rich but it actually does the opposite to your personal finances. Remember that cars are depreciating assets. Their value decreases with time due to wear and tear. You won’t be able to sell it for as much as you paid for it. The first few years see the greatest decline, after which the depreciation gets more gradual. Knowing all of these, plan your purchase more wisely. Do not spend more than what is necessary as you are likely to lose have of the original value in 5 to 6 years.
