New cars are expensive and they depreciate in value as soon as you drive off the lot. Buying a new car also means you have less money to spend on other things. If you’re looking at buying a new car, consider opting for an extended warranty that can cover up to $10,000 in damages or repairs during the first few years of ownership (afterwards, it’s only worth about $1,500). The cost of this coverage will depend on the make and model of your vehicle.

Used cars may not look like much on the outside but if you take care of them, they can run just as well as any new model. When looking into used cars always try to inspect them thoroughly before buying.
