What You Should Know Before Buying a New Car

Due to a high level of mobility for activities outside the home, Indonesians desire their own vehicles and cars are the primary choice for millennials as a personal vehicle. Before you buy a new car, you should think about the car you want in addition to a car loan simulation.

The following criteria must be considered before purchasing a new car:

1. Buy Only What is Necessary

The first thing to evaluate is whether the car has become a priority at this time or if it could still be postponed. Do not leave the newly purchased car parked, rarely used, and merely as a display in the garage. If it has become a necessity, then purchase a new car that meets your needs. For example, if you need a car for a small family, a car with 4-5 seats will be enough. Pay attention to the car's fuel consumption as well. Look for a fuel-efficient vehicle, such as the LCGC (Low Cost Green Car), if it is used every day.

2. Pay Attention to Buy and Sell Pricing

Pay close attention to the pricing of the car you want to buy. Examine the market for the car's selling price to see if it is stable. Choose a car brand that has official workshops all around Indonesia. Typically, with a large number of approved repair shops and easily obtainable spare parts, the car's selling price will be stable.

3. Determine The Installment Period

Determine the installments and tenors based on your financial capacities. Do not let it have an impact on your finance.

4. Do a Car Loan Simulation
