Life in the United States is designed so that without a personal car a person is very difficult to live and work. For the average American, a personal car is a means that he uses for convenience, nothing more. The preference is given to expensive cars, with a high guarantee of technical serviceability.

The fact is that any damage costs Americans dearly. This is in Russia or the CIS countries, you can ask a neighbor or friend to see what is knocking under the hood or why the oil is dripping. We also have a lot of service stations at home, in ordinary garages, where you will be repaired with an iron horse for a nominal fee.

In America, this is not. It is necessary to eliminate the fault in the car — contact a specialized service. Therefore, in this matter, the Americans act on the principle "I am not so rich as to pay twice."

We have already mentioned the main vehicle acquisition tools in America. Consider each of them in more detail.

Buying a new car in America

If you are one of those who decided to buy a new car, it will cost you a lot. The cost of an unclaimed vehicle varies from 18 thousand dollars and above. Luxury cars will cost you 60 thousand dollars. You also need to take out insurance and pay tax for the purchase. Costs will depend directly on the cost of the car.

Of the disadvantages of buying a new car for cash: the high cost. Not everyone can afford such expenses. Moreover, in the future, the sale of such a machine will not bring benefits. Its market value will fall, you will also have to spend money to put the car in order and pay for the dealer's services. Of the advantages: the warranty period of operation means. For 3-5 years, you can safely use the car without worrying about breakdowns.

Buying a used car

In the US, the sale and purchase of used cars is also practiced. Buying a used vehicle is much more profitable than a new one. At the end of the warranty period, the cost per car may fall by half. But, if in Russia you can easily slip a repaired car that breaks down in three days, or a car after an accident, in America the risk of such a situation is low. And, nevertheless, you need to be careful and attentive before buying, exposing the car to a complete diagnosis in a reliable service.
