Despite Cool Thinker's helpful public transport updates on here I think I'm ready to buy a car. Does anyone have any advice that they're willing to share? I went to a few dealerships yesterday to look about, but I'm admittedly pretty clueless about these things. I'd be looking to finance it over a period of 2-5 years and I'm currently leaning more towards a new model, as after getting a few quotes yesterday the APR rates for the used cars seemed to bring the price up to about the same as a new model with 0-4% APR. I'd like to avoid unexpected repair bills so the warranties available on the new ones also appealed to me. Is buying a new car ridiculous?! I really don't have much disposable income to play about with, so I'm needing something cheap to run and insure. I was quoted around £140 a month for a couple little city cars yesterday, which seemed reasonable, but again I'm completely out my depth here. Any help appreciated!
