Before all motorists once in your life gets poll to choose a car, especially if the amount of the proposed purchase is very limited. The proposal today is very large and diverse, which greatly complicates the process of making a final decision. In recent years, noted that the main criterion for young people is the appearance of the car, its power and class. Simply put, the degree of prestige. Of course much cooler ride girlfriend in sports, even if right-hand drive Japanese car with an aggressive design than, for example, the Audi 80, Volkswagen Passat B3 or the beginning or mid-90's, standing at about the same price category. Hardly anyone thinks that the difference in the cost of spare parts is just huge and sometimes exceeds the cost of the car. Many settled on a loan to purchase more expensive, but the new car, believing that it will break down less, and therefore costs and require disproportionately low. But is it really? My friend, for example bought a new, very inexpensive, but in moderation comfortable Fiat Albea credit. All of it in the car like it, but here it's time to routine maintenance, which, inter alia, a part of any loan agreement for the purchase of the vehicle. For replacement only filters and spark he had paid eight thousand rubles. Because from an authorized dealer, and elsewhere can not be serviced, you lose the guarantee (and under the hood at all seals - will not be fooled), that is a violation of the loan agreement, for which the bank would require a complete early repayment, and, ultimately, through the court will select a car, for which so much blood has already been paid, but still have him stay. Looking chassis, counted seven thousand for the lever, which on other used cars is seven times smaller. Another friend at the same time stopped in a normal service on the Volkswagen Passat B3, in less than fifteen hundred changed almost all the fluid and filters, all three completely went through the rear brakes and left satisfied. It is worth considering, especially now that due to the crisis. But, after all, the new car has undeniable advantages: it is yours alone, and, anyway, the service you will go less often, though, and pay more, so that if the peace of mind for you is more expensive to choose a new car. And if the first place is the comfort and savings, then it is better to count, looking at the cost of servicing vending iron horse.
