It’s finally time. You’ve been saving up for this ever since college, and now you’re finally financially ready to buy your own car. As exciting as the prospect of purchasing your first car is, though, you want to make sure you do it right.

Here are a few tips that’ll help you with this.

Establish Your Transportation Needs

It’s easy to get distracted by the exquisite range of convertibles and sports cars up for grabs when you begin your search for your first car. It’s important that you stay focused on what it is that you really need over what looks cool when narrowing down your options.

For this, you’re going to have to set your transportation needs. Dubai is already UAE’s most congested city, with drivers reportedly spending 80 hours stuck in traffic each year on average. Driving your fancy new sports car won’t be any fun if you have to face bumper-to-bumper traffic daily while you commute. In fact, you’re more at risk of damaging your vehicle this way.

Prioritize your transportation needs over your wants. How often will you be using your vehicle? Which car is most suited to your daily commute? What will be the fuel and insurance costs involved? These are a few things you need to consider before buying your car.

Explore New and Used Car Options

Everyone seems to have a different opinion when it comes to debating between new and used cars. The truth is, both of these have pros and cons attached, and it depends on your personal needs and requirements to decide which of the two you want.

Don’t cross out either option while you continue your car hunt. You may be surprised to find that a new car is available at an extremely affordable price or that a used automobile has just the mileage you want. After you have established your budget range and a few other basic necessities, look at both used and new car options to find the perfect vehicle!

Go For A Test Drive

Whether you’re buying a used car or a new one, don’t forget to test it out first! You want to make sure your vehicle drives as well as it looks, and the only way to know that is by taking it out for a spin.

In order to feel comfortable and content with your purchase, it’s essential that you test out the many features of the vehicle. You don’t want to buy it eagerly only to realize that the lock brake pedal is farther ahead than you expected or that the seats are just too stiff.  You also don’t want to be surprised by any unexpected sounds while driving or have difficulty handling the controls. By taking a test drive, you’ll be more confident about your car and how well it operates.
