Are you planning on buying a used car in Bend or anywhere else in Oregon? If so, your decision for the used car that you buy could greatly affect how much you end up paying for Oregon Car Insurance so it’s always best to know exactly what you’re looking for in a used car by following the tips in this post.

Questions To Ask Yourself Before Buying A Used Car

Yes, that used car may look “pretty” and its priced within your budget but can you really afford it? Before saying yes, make sure that you ask yourself these questions:

  • Do I want an automatic transmission or manual?
  • Should I buy a vehicle that has all-wheel drive?
  • What safety features can’t I live without? Example: driver side or passenger airbags.
  • Do I want a vehicle with a lot of cargo or towing capacity?
  • Will this vehicle fit in my garage or parking space?

Lease Vs. Buy – which Option Is Right For You?

Sure all of the car lots will try to sell you on the options of leasing a vehicle versus buying it outright but, before deciding to lease a vehicle make sure that you can afford your monthly car payment, Oregon Car Insurance costs and the cost of vehicle maintenance / upkeep because, you will be the one to pay for any repairs to your vehicle, unless it’s still under warranty.

What’s The Monthly Payment Going To Be?

The “golden question” to ask yourself before buying a used car is to calculate what your monthly payment is going to be and also to find out what your monthly car insurance payment will be as well.
