It is tough to know when to say goodbye to your beloved Nissan that has been good to you, especially when you have invested some money into it over the years. We spend countless hours in our vehicles and rely on them to get us to our destinations.
Your trusty old vehicle will only hold up for so long before too many parts fail. Read the following signs that it's time to buy a new car:
- Don't let repairs pile up. It is common that older vehicles require a bit more repair work. But when repairs start piling up, this is a sign it's time to consider buying a new vehicle. Add up the approximate cost you spend per month on your car in repairs and maintenance, and include gas mileage to consider your choice of downsizing in a newer vehicle.
- Find out what your car is worth. You can research what your car is worth on Kelley Blue Book and call your local dealer and see what they would give you. It is good to know how much your car has depreciated over time.
- Add up repairs and maintenance. Calculate the repairs and maintenance your car will need and compare it with the Kelley Blue Book value of your vehicle. If you have to spend more than what the car is worth to keep it on the road, it's time to sell your car.
At some point, it costs more to keep your car on the road than to start investing new. Think safe this holiday season and make the decision that is right for you and your family.
