New or used Car?

 Many car purchases start with one decision: New or used? It’s hard to remember a better time to buy either. There are plenty of good vehicles out there either way.
In the end, the decision to buy new or used boils down to what you can afford and what will give you peace of mind.
If you’re on a tight budget, then buying a used car gets you the most vehicle for the money. You can count on one hand the number of new cars that list for less than $12,000. For less than half the price of the average new car, you can buy a 3- or 4-year-old used vehicle that is larger and loaded with more features than a small, bare-bones new one. But buying a used vehicle has its own risks, which could cost you over the life of the vehicle. The fact is, you are buying a vehicle that someone else has owned and driven. You don’t know how it’s been driven or how well it’s been cared for. A used vehicle will almost certainly require maintenance and possibly expensive repairs sooner than a new one, and those repairs probably won’t be covered by a warranty.
The Case for Buying New
For some people, buying used isn’t an option; they want a brand-spanking-new car. They want to select the color and the features in it. There’s definitely a pride of ownership and peace of mind in being a vehicle’s first owner. Some other advantages include:
  • Reduced maintenance expense: A new vehicle won’t need maintenance for the first several thousand miles, and then only an oil change and tuneup will be required. More manufacturers are covering the cost of those routine maintenance items. The new vehicle likely won’t need new tires, a battery, exhaust system or brakes during its first few years of ownership, or even longer.
  • Warranty coverage: The manufacturer covers its new vehicles under warranty for at least three years, and some warranties last much longer. Under a manufacturer’s warranty, if something goes wrong with the car, it’s the responsibility of the dealer and manufacturer to fix it. Typically, these bumper-to-bumper warranties last from three years or 36,000 miles (whichever comes first — an important detail to note) to five years and 60,000 miles. In addition to comprehensive warranties, many automakers provide warranty coverage for powertrains. These often extend past the bumper-to-bumper warranties and are often valid for years longer. Some extend up to 10 years or 100,000 miles. It’s good to be aware of these powertrain warranties; if you buy a used car, what’s left of the warranty may (or may not) be fully transferable.
  • Peace of mind: If you encounter problems with your new car, you have legal recourse through state lemon laws. If you can prove that your new car is a lemon (definitions differ), you could receive a replacement vehicle or get your money back. Lemon laws apply only to new cars. You also can find out if your vehicle was returned to the used-car market as a lemon by looking at the vehicle’s title or checking out a vehicle history report.
  • Roadside assistance: In addition to a comprehensive warranty, virtually all mainstream new cars and light trucks come with some level of free roadside assistance while the vehicle remains under warranty. In addition, some automakers reimburse you or provide alternate transportation if you are stranded far from home.
The Case for Buying Used
If you’re not married to the idea of buying a new car, used vehicles have their own appeal:
  • Improved reliability: Although used vehicles typically don’t carry the same warranties as new ones, the original factory warranty on a new car is often transferable to a second owner. Buyers of certified pre-owned cars from an authorized dealer can purchase a late-model used car and get the balance of the original warranty. Often, a manufacturer will offer a longer-term warranty for certified cars, or some buyers choose to add their own extended warranties. Of course, cars have been getting more reliable over the years, as consumers have demanded it.
  • Just like new: Another trend that makes buying used a better option is the proliferation of certified pre-owned programs. The idea started with luxury brands such as Lexus and Mercedes-Benz and has become a popular alternative for car buyers

Kizashi as a “very unlucky car”

Suzuki is describing the Kizashi as a “very unlucky car” which has slim chances of receiving a direct successor in the future.

 Suzuki regrets launching Kizashi, unlikely to receive successor

 

The Japanese marque says Kizashi failed to be a success due to poor timing since the car was introduced to the market just before the global financial crisis which started affecting United States in 2009. At that moment there were a few debates about whether to launch the car or not and in the end they decided to start selling it since Suzuki “made a big investment to develop” the model.

If the model would have been a success, Suzuki’s plans were to release a V6-powered version along with a more practical wagon derivative. The company’s Australian managing director Masaaki Kato says a second generation model is unlikely to happen because it requires a lot of investments in exchange for what will probably be “too little return.”

One of Kizashi’s main problems is its extremely steep starting price (from 29,990 AUD in Australia) but that could be fixed sometime in the future by conducting a local restructure which could lower the mid-size sedan’s price tag, although Kato didn’t specify an exact figure.

Buying a Japanese Used Car

Alain Japan

As per the latest auto news – A Research undertaken by Expert for Used Cars. The Al Ain Japan Indicates that Japanese cars are the most reliable in the used car category.

Accurate measurement of Vehicles Resale price

Before buying a used car or new car every one of us should make a proper analysis on the price of affordability and resale values. It’s really waste of time if we invest extra money on the cars which is really not that much worth able. Many experts say that we must make a blue book check before deciding the vehicle we going to buy. Lots of online price measurement tools are available. If we give the vehicles year, make, model, zip code, mileage etc to the online tools it will make a proper analysis and give you a verified detail report. Used cars value will degrade according to the mileage and maintenance factors. After all the details were observed the blue book site will give a set of retail price values.

Image

 

Price factors of the cars depend on other factors also. We must check the condition of the cars. Damages, scratches and driving condition, engine condition everything comes under consideration. While doing the blue book check we must also mention the conditions of the particular car. Also we must provide for any major mechanical problems like smoke emission  cooling system , engine transmission , etc. if the details were mentioned accurately the seller have a chance of reducing the exact price of the vehicle depending on the demand of the vehicle.

Checking the problems of the cars requires few checklists which have to done carefully

  • Drive it to listen for engine noise, test acceleration levels and check the brakes. Listen for rattles or squeaks.
  • Take a look at the engine underneath the hood. If it looks like it hasn’t been taken care of or lots of extraneous wiring exists, ask for detailed service records.
  • Notice if the suspension seems even and provides an easy, comfortable ride. Look at the tires.
  • See if it pulls to one side or the other. It’s an alignment issue (or bad tires) if it pulls all the time; it’s a brake problem if it pulls when stopping. Check for brake shudder when stopping; (that’s front rotors and probably pads).It should not wander (tires or steering components).
  • If you have time, sit in the car for an hour… seats often feel comfortable until you’ve sat in them a while.

If you want to buy a decent car always go for the cars which have been displayed and advertised. It isn’t always easy to get the good car but proper analysis makes it happen. To make the price values more affordable always go with the higher price than the blue book estimate. These things will definitely save few thousand dollars in the bank account.   

There are many online tools available for blue book check. We must carefully make a decision on which website to analyze

When it comes to figuring out a resale or retail price for a used car, potential sellers realize that the general idea of nebulous value is true for vehicles: the true price of a vehicle is the price that a buyer is willing to pay for it. Some basic guidelines can help a vehicle owner or dealer figure out an estimate, but the concrete value of the vehicle gets established through negotiation. Here are some ways to determine a car’s retail value for a sale offer.

Toyota GT 86 Sedan rendered

It was only yesterday when rumors of a sedan GT 86 sedan emerged, and now we bring a render with the four-door version which is allegedly close to production series.

 

The artist behind these renders is Theophilus Chin who envisioned a red sedan GT 86 back in 2011 and now he updated his work with a black car which looks more appropriate for a production-ready model. If green-lighted for production, the four-door GT 86 will boast a 100mm extended wheelbase and could be shown in March next year at Geneva Motor Show.

 

 Toyota GT 86 Sedan rendered

 

The car will reportedly be offered as standard with the coupe’s 2.0-liter boxer engine but an optional hybrid arrangement derived from the Yaris Hybrid-R concept is also in the cards with up to 268 bhp (200 kW) and a KERS system similar to F1 cars.

 

A market launch is expected towards the end of 2015 while pricing should be in the same region as the coupe.
