Old Car? Signs You Need To Buy A New One

This is a collaborative blog post.

How old is your car? Maybe it’s been a decade since you bought it? Perhaps even longer? Then you definitely need to think about buying a new one! A new car can bring a lot of convenience your way, especially if you notice any of three signs down below. If you do, it’s time to hang up the car keys and put a new model in the garage.

There’s Always Something Wrong


How often do you have to take your car in for repairs? If it’s around once a month at the moment, it’s a surefire sign that the car has gotten too old and is breaking down in front of your eyes. 


Similarly, if you always see a warning light on the dashboard whenever you turn the car on, don’t ignore the flashing for much longer. If you don’t feel safe in the car, get rid of it and get yourself a new one you can rely on. 


The Insurance is Getting Expensive


Expensive insurance is the worst thing for a car owner. If you can’t find a quote below £1000 anywhere on the market, it’s clear the car you’re driving just isn’t fit for the road anymore! 


And sure, you can get a black box installed so the insurance company can keep up with your road habits and see how safe of a driver you are, but not every driver is comfortable with that. It doesn’t feel great to have a little surveillance box in the vehicle with you! 


If you can’t afford the insurance anymore, it’s time to buy a model that’s going to be respected by the premium. Chuck the old car out, get as much money as you can for it, then start hunting around for a new car and a new company to insure you. It’ll take some time to compare all the quotes, so get a head start on this point! 


You’ve Already Found a Great New Model


If you’ve already found a new car that you’d love to drive, it might be the best sign you could ever receive that it’s time to sell your old car and move on! Maybe you’ve been looking online on edmunds and found some great models you’d be proud to call your own? Maybe you drive past a dealership every day and one car stands out to you above all the rest? 


Whatever it is that’s telling you there’s a better car out there for you, don’t delay any longer in getting your hands on it. 


The sooner you buy a new car for yourself, the cheaper your insurance premium will become, the more comfortable you’ll feel behind the wheel, and the lower your carbon footprint may be. Indeed, older cars tend to give off more emissions, and the newer the model you’re driving, the better for the environment it’ll be. 


If your car is pretty old right now, don’t let it chug along for much longer. Get yourself a new model!
