Buying a car (that you love)

Cars, there's something about buying your first car isn't there? I think it's one of those moments you tend to remember forever. Today I decided to bring you something a little bit different today for you; but I think you'll enjoy it, all the same, today's post is all about cars! You're probably sat there thinking that I don't often talk about cars which is true but I do talk about finance and I plan to continue, here on Dungarees & Donuts I find it important to talk about the things that matter. I love talking money saving for pretty much everything so I thought why are cars any different? I have wanted to own my own car for sooo long and although I don't know a lot about cars one of the most important factors for me is colour, being able to get from A to B and have a bit of style to it. I hope you enjoy this post and let me know your thoughts in the comments! 

According to research from Creditplus, 50% of women are now buying cars showing that cars are no longer just a 'man thing' but in fact, a thing women love just as much! I love the fact that women are now buying more cars than ever and to find out more about car buying habits in the UK, Creditplus asked me to answer some questions about my own personal car choices. 

As I currently don't have a car I can't really talk much about what I currently drive or what I think of it, but I know if I was driving a car now based on my budget it would be a small and probably very old car, which I would rather save for and be able to afford something a lot more stylish! Being a very girly girl the colour of the car is important to me, I would love something pastel coloured or just white as I think they're girly and my style. I have seen some gorgeous Fiat 500s which I totally wouldn't mind! When looking for a car I imagine the inside would be just as important as the outside to me, I love interior and I think it would be important to have lots of gadgets inside, including a good set of speakers, heat up seats and a good colour leather for the seats. Ideally, it would be a newer car as it would be more road-friendly and not admit as many bad gasses into the environment! After seeing many people in my own life using finance to buy a car I would totally look at that option myself, it seems like the best way to be able to purchase a decent car without breaking the bank and paying it back is as simple as phone bill every month.

  1. My favourite car was a white Mini with black stripes down the bonnet, I miss that car! I think when buying a car it's important to look at practical stuff like miles per gallon and what insurance group it is, plus how much the road tax is. Otherwise you end up with a pretty car you can't afford to run.

  2. I still have my first car (a now 16yr old Corsa), I bought it outright. It's not the pretties car but I love it and I love that it's mine. It's important to also look at how much it costs to run the car on fuel and the insurance band, driving can get expensive. =^-^=
