Two decades into the 21st century, and cars are not just seen as machines anymore. They are a lifestyle. 21st century is the prime peak of new technology inventions and that is one of the reasons why cars have become an important aspect of our lives. Living in this fast track world seems impossible if you are not an owner of a car. The craze for cars and the obsession of owning a different car every single year is the new high among the young and the old. But do you know the real red flags that tell you, you need to upgrade the model of your car or simply purchase one from a new brand? If you don’t, tag along:
1) CALLS FOR A WEIGHTY REPAIR:
If your current car needs a repair that would cost almost half the money you bought it for, it’s a sign that you might need to buy yourself a new car and that’s what any sane person would do. Be like one.
2) KEEPS BREAKING DOWN:
If you have to stop several times while travelling because the tires get punctured or the engine keeps heating up, save yourself the torture and buy a car that works as one.
3) YOU HAVE GROWN OUT OF IT:
You bought the car when you were just a 22 year old enjoying the shiny bachelors life. And now you’re a 30 year old married man, with a wife and two kids that just won’t fit in your tiny Vitz. It’s time to let it go and let another suitable car enter in your life.
4) LOOKS OLD AND SAD:
How aesthetically pleasing your car is to the sight? If you don’t feel like the heart eyed emoji when you have a look at your car, it is not for you.
5) PRICEY TO MAINTAIN:
If your car demands high maintenance and makes you take out big chunks of bills out of your wallet frequently, It is better to sell it and get a car that is more reliable.
6) NOT UP-TO DATE WITH NEW TECHNOLOGY:
If you own a car that cannot cope up with new important technical advancements, It is simply not worth it.
7) YOUR FRIENDS DON’T LIKE SITTING IN IT:
That is a huge red flag that screams “TIME TO CHANGE YOUR CAR”! This usually means your car looks like an embarrassment and your friends rather walk than sit in your car.
8) A BETTER VERSION OF YOUR CAR IS AVAILABLE:
It is good to keep upgrading into newer version of the car that you own as it might not cost you much and also lets you enjoy a new car.
If you have been driving the same car since ages (read a year), Boredom may strike you hard and that is why you should really buy yourself a new car.
10) IT WON’T START:
Well, a new car is a necessity than.
