If you are buying a used car in Jamaica, you probably want to save some money. This means that you need to prioritize what is most important to you in a car. This article will help you assess your needs and your wants, so that you can find a car that suits you perfectly.
Look at the cost of a car. There is no point in window shopping at a fully-loaded $4,500,000 car if you will only be able to afford a $2,000,000 car in the first place. When you are establishing your budget for your car, be sure to account for how much the insurance will likely be, how much gas you will be spending (although this figure does change, it is best to go in having at least an idea), and regular maintenance. To budget for maintenance, you will need estimate the costs of 4 oil changes a year, plus some extra money just in case. Used cars are, well, used: they are not new and are generally not under warranty.
What kind of driving do you do? You probably don't need a four-wheel drive behemoth of an SUV if you do mostly city driving. For most drivers, the way that you drive a car will mean that you are open to many options. However, if this is a limiting factor, it is important to take into consideration.
If you are a commuter, then you will have to take other factors into consideration. You might not want to buy a Honda with very high mileage, because you will be adding the miles to that odometer. You might want to find a car that has very comfortable seats to make your ride go better. Things that could be less important, like the stereo, become much more important when you spend a lot of time in your car each day.
How many people do you normally travel with? What is the most number of people that you have taken in your current car at once? If you don't already have a car, estimate the number of people you will have with you on a regular basis. If you only drive around 7 people during the football tournament once a year, you can probably skip buying a minivan. However, if you normally drive three people around, it might be a pain to get a two door vehicle.
Not only do you want to get the right Honda, you want to get the right car loan. It is wiser to have your financing lined up before you go to a used car dealership in Jamaica. You can set up used car loans at any bank: but one often overlooked type of used car loan is to go to a credit union, where you can generally get lower interest than at a major bank.
In the End
You will be the one driving. Make the decisions based on your needs and what you feel is right. Though it is great to get lots of advice (and sometimes it helps to take someone savvy about mechanics along with you to check out the car), considering these facts will help make you capable of choosing the right car.
