As we all know, it is always better to buy something new, instead of used. However, the money is never enough so the used car market is one of the biggest in the world. Moreover, there are people, who have enough money for a new car and prefer something older, but with big engine and a lot of extras.
You can always make a research for common problems of the vehicle you prefer. The users of the automobile forums share their problems and resolutions. This can save you a lot of money and time.
Of course, a new car has a lot of advantages over the old one, but the service intervals are very expensive, because everything should be done in authorized service. In other case you will lose the warranty, which is the most important feature of a brand new vehicle. Other disadvantage is the price, which often seem very low and tempting, but when you ask for some additional extras, the number grows very fast.
The truth is that you can buy and maintain 5-year old car from a same brand, but with a lot of extras and nice engine, instead getting a brand new boring vehicle without spirit. For example, if you are searching for a Ford Mustang, it is always better to pick GT 500 fully loaded, instead of a new base V6 model. The price is the same, but you get better vehicle.
