New Cars

Pros – With a new car, you get the advantage of being the car’s only owner. This means that you don’t have to consider whether the car has a dodgy history, whether it’s ever visited a chop shop, or whether it has been involved in an accident. Plus, because it is shiny and new, it’s also under warranty, which means that you get ultimate peace of mind because, if anything goes wrong, the manufacturer should fix it for you...
