Buying a house is the biggest investment you are likely to make. Buying a new car is the second biggest investment you will make. So it really is kind of a big deal. Which just might be the reason why you are still driving around town in a twenty-year-old Honda Accord.
Driving a Honda Accord is bad enough, but the thing tends to stall out at the worst possible times; like when you are sitting at a busy intersection at rush hour waiting for the light to turn.
If you are sitting on the fence about buying a new car, we have some information that just might sway you. Suffolk Glass, your windshield repair service in Long Island, offers the benefits of buying a new car.
You might not believe this, but most modern cars have automatic windows, satellite radio and power steering. Back in the day, your Honda was a technological breakthrough with all of the bells and whistles it came with.
But things in the world of technology change rather quickly. The stereo system in your old Honda doesn’t offer satellite radio, has no touch control and you can’t even plug your smartphone into it. A new car will offer all of that plus much more.
New vehicles come with manufacturer warranties that cover 50,000, 60,000 and even 100,000 miles or as much as 10 years. This means that if your car craps out on you at 25,000 miles, there is a good chance that it is covered. When your Honda dies, you have to cover all of the repair costs.
Many dealers offer maintenance plans so you don’t have to worry about spending your hard earned money on things like oil changes and tire rotations. You have to dig out loose change from the back seat for enough change to buy a quart of oil to add to your oil-burning engine.
A new car will give you peace of mind knowing that your family is safe. New cars come with safety features your old Honda doesn’t have like side airbags, anti-lock braking system and blind spot monitor.
Better Fuel Efficiency
Yet another upgrade you will see in newer cars is improved fuel efficiency. This is great news for your wallet. New cars also have better emission rates, so you are doing the earth a lot of good.
There are probably a few pieces of your old Honda missing or broken. As technology advances, manufacturers are finding new ways to keep your car components from breaking. Your new car will be durable and probably last you a long time.
Freedom Of Choice
You are the boss, you can buy whatever kind of vehicle you like. After your spouse approves it, of course. Understand that after driving a Honda for so long, it will feel great to get behind the wheel of a car you have had your eye on for some time.
Just remember to give Suffolk Glass a call when you need to have the windshield repaired.
