    Default Would you prefer new car or Second hand?

    I would like to prefer a second hand car in good condition as it would save me some good money which i can utilize some where else.

    Which one do you prefer.. a Brand new car or a good second hand car.

    It depends. Like with first hand car i wouldnt had to worry for about 2 years because of its warranty and with second hand car this would not be possible and another thing is that second hand cars have more maintenance costs.

    I would like to go with first hand car as in it you dont have to worry about anything at all. You have warranty and if there is any technical falt then it is replaced under it.

    It all depends. Like i had purchased some second hand cars before buying a new laura and the fact that i think people should keep in mind is that while going to second hand car go with a car who does not have expensive spare parts.

    I have a second hand car and i would say that getting is second hand car is a great deal if it is in a good condition. Like i saved more then 2 lacs on my this car which is in a great condition.

    A second hand car is more value for money as long as it is in good condition. Everyone knows that a car depreciates to 40% of its value in its first 3-4 years. After that the depreciation is only 5~8% per year.

    For example, one can buy a 5 year old E-Class Merc for 14~18 lakhs (which I would do if I had the money). After owning this vehicle for the next 5 years (this enjoying the perks of the elite 3-pointed star club and green-looks from elsewhere), you can still sell the car for 7~10 lakhs later.

    But a brand new vehicle has its own perks.

    you can say that.but perhaps first hand will always remain a first hand.the comfort level and all the things.people who don't like to show it off and buy cars for themselves never prefer second hand cars.

    basically its depend on your finantial condition.

    As myself currently can afford a second hand car but offcourse if i'll be having money surely buy a new car.

    A New Car:-

    Very less need of maintenence,smooth driving and offcourse matter of show of.

    Second Hand:-

    you won't loose a big amount if you go for resell,if you are on learning track best choice and yeah improve your mechanin skill l0l

    My suggestion would be to go for second hand car, if you are getting for the first time and you are just learning to drive the car, as you can play with it without the fear of being damaging your brand new car. After some time you have become an expert you can sell that old car and get a brand new car of your dream!

    I think it depends on your needs, if you're a novice, you must go for a second hand car, as it will allow you drive it the way you want

    Talking about me, I'll go for a new car.
