Debating whether or not if you should repair your vehicle or purchase a new vehicle? Before you head down to the nearest dealership you should consider these tips before any major decision is made.

This is a question we get asked quite frequently. The answer is never the same for everyone and is a question only you can answer. Whether you should buy a new car or repair your car is entirely up to your budget.
There are many options to consider first, before making your final decision:
• Repair your current car and hopefully get another year or two out of it or be able to sell it for more if you do decide to buy a different car.
• Buy a used car from an individual that you find parked on the side of a road or posted on the online classified websites. However, you need to be careful when purchasing from these individuals that you are not just trading car problems. Make sure you have your mechanic check out the vehicle to see if there are any underlying mechanical problems.
• Buy a used car from a used car dealership. Most of these cars have been checked out and any maintenance issues taken care of. They usually cost more than if you buy from an individual but many times they come with some sort of a warranty option.
• Buy a brand new car. The upside is because it’s brand new it should be reliable for years; the downside is they cost more.
Here are the some things to think about as you try to decide what you should do:
