When is it Time for a New Car?
Knowing when it’s time for a new car can be difficult, especially if you’re blinded by your memories and experiences in your old car. Sometimes you have to look beyond those good times you’ve had in your vehicle and see your car for what it is. To know when it’s time for a new car, you’ll have to look at factors like mileage, repairs, and reliability. For a little help, take these signs from us here at Crown Kia of Longview.
- Reliability. If you have to try to start your car over and over again multiple times every day, there’s little question you need a new car. If you’re having trouble with the starter, odds are you’ll find a major problem sooner rather than later. Save yourself some money by making use of your car’s trade-in value before it’s nothing more than scrap.
- Repairs. Repairs can be costly and, even worse, they can add up quickly. Depending on the age and condition of your car, you could be spending more in repairs than your car is actually worth. See what your car’s value is and determine whether the cost of repairs is exceeding what it’s worth.
- Mileage. Seeing a car with six digits on the odometer isn’t too surprising these days. A car with that many miles could need major repairs if it wasn’t properly taken care of. If your car has high miles, it may be time to trade it in for good.
