10 Mistakes Lots of People Make When Buying a New Car

According to statistics, most drivers change their car once every six years, which is a pretty long period of time. To take the best out of your car in those six years, to save money and to avoid constant repairing, you’d better avoid ten mistakes many of us make when buying a car. One day you’ll probably decide to sell your car. That’s why you have to consider some important features. According to Paint supplier PPG Industries, white is the most popular car color in the US with 35 percent of all sold vehicles. It is followed by black with 17 percent, and silver and gray that both got a 12 percent popularity. In case you want to purchase some good old German luxury brands such as BMW or Mercedes-Benz, you have to be prepared to pay around $17,800 and $12,900 for ten years of maintenance accordingly. US popular brand Cadillac comes next with an average $12,500 maintenance cost for the same period of time. Additional airbags, a passenger sensing system that can tell the size of the person in the seat and save smaller children in case of a crash, auto-dimming mirrors to reduce the glare coming from headlights at night, head restraints and ABS are some of the things you don’t want to save money at. Make a check-list of features you need to check and think of where you’ll be driving your new vehicle. Try driving on the highway and park in uncomfortable conditions if that’s what you know you’ll have to do in the future. Examine everything to help yourself make the right decision. Don’t be afraid to miss “the deal of a lifetime.” You must have noticed those come up now and then, so you shouldn’t let them pressure you into making a wrong financial decision that will affect your budget for years. Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music TIMESTAMPS You don’t think about resale value. 0:32 Car maintenance can be expensive. 1:46 You pay for optional items. 2:50 You buy a brand new car. 3:33 You buy a car that is too big or too small. 4:03 You can’t choose between car’s prestige and technical characteristics. 4:34 You don’t examine the car. 5:19 You miss advantageous offers and discounts. 6:08 You don’t try to lower the price. 6:30 You’re in a hurry. 6:51 SUMMARY -First, the car brand matters: there are brands that are more or less popular among drivers. Second, you need to think about the vehicle specifications and the engine. Third, don’t forget about its color. -Think of how much of your family budget car maintenance can make, and decide if you want to spend that much on your vehicle after you’ve purchased it. -Some drivers don’t smoke inside their cars. In this case, they don’t need an ashtray. An additional corrosion treatment is useless as well because cars already have an anti-corrosion treatment. -The best choice is a car model that is no more than three years old and already well-known. -Try to predict how many times you’re going to travel by car, how many passengers will be there, and so on. -A premium class car will give you better safety, high performance and increased comfort their manufacturers guarantee. -Gather as much information as possible at reliable websites and among your friends, consult an independent specialist, and test drive your chosen car. -The best time to buy a car starts in December and reaches its peak in March. -Try to call or send emails to different dealerships saying you have a better offer and asking if they can beat it. -Spend enough time to gather information, consulting specialists, and weighing the pros and cons.

Skoda Rapid hatchback review - CarBuyer

Skoda Rapid hatchback 2014 review: http://bit.ly/1dJ2g5Y Subscribe to the Carbuyer YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/17k4fct Subscribe to Auto Express: http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/cb The Skoda Rapid is a hatchback model with a huge boot designed to take on the Volkswagen Golf and the Ford Focus. It's a value car, so the interior quality and comfort aren't entirely up to the standards offered in more expensive rivals. But considering the entry price tag of £12,900, there really isn't much else in this class that feels as well-rounded as the Rapid. It may not be the most exciting car in the world but it's certainly a fantastic family choice.

Ostensibly it’s a hatchback version of the ordinary Rapid saloon – the irony being it really, really isn’t – that, judging by the size of it, ought to compete with the Ford Focus, Vauxhall Astra and so on. Only it doesn’t really, because that’s the Octavia’s job. The Spaceback exists to plug the gap between the Octavia and the smaller Fabia, both in terms of price and size (though it’s actually a little narrower and lower than the Fabia). Basic ones can be had for less than £15K, with top-spec cars coming in at almost £20K. The Fabia starts at £10.5K, and the Octavia just under £18K.

It’s been around for a few years now (the Rapid was facelifted midway through 2017), and is one of the few remaining small, European VW Group cars not based on a version of the MQB platform. The front-end is lifted from the last-generation Volkswagen Polo, and the rear from the first-generation Skoda Octavia. This makes it cheap to build (and therefore sell), but means it’s not quite as good to drive, comfortable or refined as other VW Group products.

Skoda says the Spaceback is all about practicality, space and functionality rather than cutting-edge tech’ or especially amusing handling. So it’s got a 415-litre boot (very healthy given its size and price, expandable to 1,380 if you fold the seats) and a few little “Simply Clever” touches borrowed from bigger, more expensive Skodas like the Superb. Touches like the small umbrella that lives in a drawer under the passenger’s seat, or the ice scraper you’ll see when you open the fuel-filler cap.

Engines on offer include two versions of the excellent 1.0-litre, three-cylinder turbocharged petrol, plus 1.4 and 1.6-litre diesels. The lower-powered petrol and 1.4-litre diesel engines are available with a seven-speed DSG automatic gearbox instead of the standard five- or six-speed manual, but for a hefty premium of over £1K. The only engine we’ve sampled is the 108bhp version of the 1.0-litre petrol, which comes with front-wheel drive and a six-speed manual gearbox. There is no vRS performance version.

The Rapid Spaceback isn’t for people who are interested in driving. Its steering is glassy, remote, and not even slightly confidence-inspiring. Work up the courage to tip the Rapid into a bend at speed and, to its credit, you’re met with reasonable reserves of grip and a sensible amount of roll. But generally speaking, this is not a car to revel in driving down a twisty B-road. Its chassis and steering encourage a more relaxed driving style that doesn’t trouble the upper third of the rev counter, or even demand you keep both hands on the steering wheel.

Happily the 1.0-litre three-cylinder engine – tested here in its most powerful, 108bhp form – is as good here as it is elsewhere in the Skoda range. Quiet, punchy enough to see off the 0-62mph sprint in less than ten seconds and economical. Skoda claims 61.4mpg combined, and we saw mid-Fifties on a long motorway run with a B-road at one end, and a few miles of rush-hour London at the other. The six-speed manual is smooth-shifting and the clutch, brakes and accelerator are all progressive, making the Rapid easy to drive smoothly at any speed. This is the engine and gearbox combination we’d choose.

The driving position is reasonable – the steering wheel gets reach and rake adjustment, which isn’t always the case in cars that major on value – but the ride is fidgety and there’s quite a lot of wind noise, compromising the Rapid’s long-distance hauling abilities. That said, nothing about the Rapid encourages you to pay any attention to its dynamic attributes. It’s just a ‘car’, and because it doesn’t do anything insultingly terribly, you tend to ignore it and think about other things. The moron in the Mondeo in front of you. What to have for dinner. The Rapid is never at the forefront of your mind, however, whenever or wherever you’re driving it, so the fact it doesn’t ride quite as well as it could somehow doesn’t matter. You just get in and drive the thing.
