About Me

buying a car that is affordable to own

When I was looking for a new car, I wanted to take my time and make the best possible decision. I wanted to know what car was going to be the most affordable to maintain, repair and drive every day. I wanted a car that wasn't going to rust out or require repairs often. I basically wanted something that may cost me a little more to buy, but would not cost me much to keep for the next ten years. After spending weeks researching different types of cars, I have learned a lot about the different cars on the market and my blog contains everything that I have learned.

Why Buying A Car For A Christmas Gift Is An Excellent Idea

Christmas can be expensive, but there are expensive gifts that are totally worth it. Take all the new cars for sale as an example. A car is definitely not the cheapest gift to buy someone, but it is, most assuredly, one of the best gifts you can give. Here is why. 

The Recipient Is Probably a Close Family Member, Which Means Everyone Benefits

When you buy a car for someone, it is usually for a spouse or one of your teen/adult children. Buying a car for him/her is like buying a car for everyone because everyone benefits from having another car in the driveway. The recipient can shuttle everyone else around, run errands without having to wait for you to bring the other car home, and maybe work another job outside the house to support the family. In fact, there are about a half dozen different ways that the entire immediate family benefits from you buying a car to give someone this holiday season. 

The Recipient Will Never Forget That Christmas

The more expensive and bigger the gift, the more difficult it is to forget which Christmas it was that the gift was given/received. If you are going for the most unforgettable holiday yet, buy something from a luxury car dealership. There is no way your family member could ever forget such a gift, especially when that gift will last at least a decade or more. 

The Recipient Can Give the Car to Another Family Member or Use It on a Future Trade-in

The thing about cars as gifts is that they keep on giving. After the recipient has had the car for some time, he/she can either give the car to another family member and buy another car or use the car you gave him/her as a trade-in vehicle to get a discount on the next car he/she buys. If you decide to lease the vehicle, then the recipient can either choose to buy the car at the end of the lease period or trade it in for another vehicle with a new lease or purchase that car outright. Whatever he/she chooses to do with the vehicle down the road, it is the gift that keeps on turning into a gift for him/her or for someone else in the family. How many other gifts can you give that would have the same effect?
