New Year, New You, and New Foreign Car! So you’re in the market for a new car. You have probably heard arguments for and against buying foreign cars. Other people claim that domestic cars are the way to go. At the end of the day, it is all about preference and what fits your lifestyle and price. Most studies show that on average, consumers are happier with foreign cars than domestic cars.
Foreign cars tend to last much longer and run better than domestic cars. The average domestic vehicle will start to experience problems around 100,000 miles, while foreign vehicles will last longer than 100,000 miles with proper maintenance. Domestic vehicles tend to cost less upfront than a foreign vehicle but in the long run, it is well worth the extra money upfront. Not only that, but foreign cars generally have a good track record of not losing their value. The resale value of domestic cars tend to go down in value steadily, but foreign cars tend to have consistently high resale value.
Do Your Research
Doing your research about the car your purchasing is always important. Not all foreign vehicles will be top notch. You shouldn’t just buy the first foreign car you find and expect it to run perfectly. Take the time to find the Kelly Blue Book value of the car you want to purchase. Especially if you are looking for a used car. Speaking to others that have owned the car in the past and asking them about their experience with the car is also a good way to make your decision. Overall, it’s important to choose the car that is right for your lifestyle and price.
