The vehicle may cost less upfront, but could potentially possess higher insurance rates or a higher frequency for maintenance.

Ensure you are fully aware of, not only the initial cost of the vehicle but the long-term costs associated with it as well.
When you are making such a large purchase, the last thing you want is for everything to come crashing down. Prior to purchasing your new vehicle, do some research and see what existing owners of the vehicle are saying. Reliability is a huge factor and essentially, it is what determines how long your car will last and it’s ability to get you from point A to point B. If owners of the vehicle you are looking to purchase and discussing the barrage of issues they are facing, it may be worth investing your hard-earned money in a more reliable vehicle.

Prior to rolling out, all vehicles must pass standardized safety tests which will determine whether or not they are safe for the roads and for the consumers.

Many new vehicles come equipt with a vast amount of safety technology and it is imperative to familiarize yourself with it in the event you require it.
Many Canadians spend a good amount of time in their vehicles. From long drives to simply sitting in traffic during rush hours, cars tend to become a second home. If you are someone who does copious amounts of driving, whether by yourself or with others, you want to ensure your new vehicle is functional and provides comfort (just not TOO much, you don’t want to fall asleep behind the wheel!). Infotainment systems, heated seats/steering, vast interior space, and interactive technology are some components that relate to vehicles overall functionality.
Many sacrifice drive-type if the vehicle they are looking to purchase possesses all of the components outlined above, however, this does not mean it should be disregarded. A vehicles drive-type correlates substantially to its ability to perform in various road conditions. For example, a rear-wheel drive vehicle exudes high power and speed, however, they are not ideal for winter conditions. On the other hand, 4-wheel drive vehicles perform exceptionally well in poor conditions, however, they tend to cost more. Determining the best drive type for you depends on where you live, the typical climate, when you do the most driving, and your budget.
Looking for a new vehicle takes time and research and for good reason, it is one of the largest purchases you will make. With new 2019 models rolling out, it’s important to ensure the vehicle you want has all the components necessary to keep you satisfied.
