What's more important when buying a car: price or mileage? | The Tylt
There’s a lot that goes into buying a car. Along with model, make, and, of course, color (still holding out for that pink Barbie Corvette?), the two factors that mainly take up folks’ decisions are price and mileage. Some opt to always go cheap, not caring where the car’s been, just so long as it gets them to where they need to be. Others base their purchase decision more on mileage, looking for wheels that are newer as opposed to experienced. Which do you prefer?
What's more important when buying a car: price or mileage?
The whole purpose of a car is to drive it from one location to another. You don’t need any kind of fancy bells and-or whistles: no undercoats; no surround sound. Just get the basic, cheapest car in the lot, and you’re well on your way.
Besides, why would you blow a ton of well-earned cash on something that’s not, like, a house or food? So long as it does its job, it shouldn’t matter how expensive a car is.
If you buy cheap, you get cheap. This isn’t an entirely bad thing, unless it’s something you should never buy used like, say, a car. If a car has a ton of miles on it, that means that it’s not as likely to last that long.
Plus, the more worn down a car, the more problems it’s likely to have. Make sure those miles are at zero, baby, until you hit that long, luscious road.
