Which vehicle should you choose according to your needs?
You must consider several factors when buying a new or used vehicle. At Auto Value Certified Service Centers, we believe that the most important thing to avoid disappointment is to consider your lifestyle and your needs. Here are a few tips to help you make your decision.
If you frequently need to transport sports equipment, large musical instruments, a stroller or other bulky items, you should consider an SUV, a hatchback or a minivan.
Need to tow loads?
Do you have a boat, ATV or tent trailer? If so, towing capacity is an important consideration. Depending on the weight of the object to be towed, you may choose a powerful vehicle such as an SUV, a 4×4 or a pickup truck.
Need more seats?
If you have a large family or several friends with whom you like to go on road trips, look for a minivan, a station wagon, a SUV or a crossover, which are an interesting compromise between a sport utility vehicle and a passenger car.
Need more comfort?
Don’t skimp on comfort if you regularly travel long distances or have chronic physical pain. Look for a mid-size luxury sedan or another passenger vehicle with ergonomic seats that can adjust to your body type. Take the time to test drive a vehicle for at least 30 minutes before making your choice.
If you drive mostly in the city and don’t need to carry several passengers, a compact car, coupe or small two-seater is your best choice. Any of these cars will make parking in tight spots or in parallel a breeze.
In addition, you may want to include safety, esthetics and fuel efficiency in your selection criteria. It’s a good idea to rank the most important features to help you make an informed decision.
Once you’ve found the best vehicle for your needs, make an appointment and visit your local Auto Value Certified Service Centers for a regular maintenance. Thanks to the expertise of our expert mechanics, your car will get you from point A to point B for many years — safely!
