It’s almost always cheaper to keep an old car running than it is to buy a new one when you consider all the facts. It’s easy to get swept up in the shiny-new-car syndrome, but if you can find a way to breathe life into your old one, you can put the money you’ll save to another great use. Keep in mind, however, that Mast Service Center will never judge you for buying a new car! We get it. The shiny-new-car syndrome is real!
Let’s take a look at just how keeping your current vehicle saves you money. We will start with the most obvious: the new car payment. Unless you are seriously upgrading makes and models because you’ve inherited a considerable sum or received an enormous pay raise, the chances are that you will stick to something similar to what you currently own. Even if there’s only a couple of years difference from the old to the new, you can count on a significant increase in car payments. If you have paid off your most recent vehicle, then that is even more than you’ll have to add to your monthly budget. Just think of all the places you could go if you didn’t have to do that!
Insurance: check with your insurance agent and see just how much your new car is going to cost you every month to keep it well insured. Even if you can afford that older model Porsche you’ve been craving, the insurance on it might do you in! Talk to your trusted agent before you make that new-car purchase.
Preventative maintenance goes a long way in helping you get the most out of your vehicle for as long as possible. When you love your car or if you don’t want to increase your monthly budget, after giving it a good detailing, bring it into the professionals at Mast Service Center. We are here to help you save money while still enjoying the car you have, and it’s our job to help keep you safe on the road. When you’re ready for us to help you with keeping your vehicle performing at its best, schedule an appointment today with the pros at Mast Service Center.
