  1. My wife and I just have a car. I don't think it'd be green-friendly if each of us had one car - since we're lucky enough to work at the same places and on the same days. We keep turns driving the car. Now as to the factors we consider when choosing a car, h'm... First of all, it must be the cheapest but the strongest one on the market. In other words, a good popular car. I'd rather buy a new car than a used one because I wouldn't like to spend more money on it fixing it regularly. Besides, it's generally given you a one-year warranty if you buy a new car. You may have it for one year and after that you sell it for a good price and buy another good brand-new car of the same model and make.

    1. Now, I am still a student. I learn in a university in city and after graduate, I also stay there to work. However; my family is in the village, the distance from my house to my university is 30 km. So I hope in my future, I can buy a car to come back home more offen. If I buy it, the first thing I consider is its price. With me, both a new car and a used one are ok, provided that it is a good car.

    3. Hi. actually, I have a car, but a want better one. So, when I decided to buy a new car or a used one, I really will watch on the reputation of company. It will be contemporary, beautiful and technology vehicle. Because actually, the technologies are making reliability and safety vehicles.

    4. i think a new car because don´t have problem of motor or bodywork so it´s easy drive a car that don´t have problem. the true is that also is expensive to get a new car. so by the economy maybe i am thinking in an used car, unless someone with lees problem possible.

  2. I think the reliability is the first I will consider because if you buy a worse car you may need tp pay more money to repair it.

    1. I will prefer a new car, but not an expensive car, for me in this right moment the factor that made my decision were the price (not an expensive car) and the fuel type (I prefer GNV Fuel) in order to be more green-friendly

  3. I would prefer to buy a brand new car in my power,the safe reliability is my first thought factor. And what kind car is chosen from the purpose, if usually driving car long-distance so buying the strongest and the safest reliability, if only driving car in city, sure choosing good appearance under the safe reliability. There are many problems in used cars, more time will be stayed in repair place. I would prefer to take metro when going out doing things,unless necessary driving car.

  4. I think this problem according to your particular situation. If you have a lot of money, of course you choose a grand new and well-known make car,like BMW,Benz.Else you can buy used car, in this way you saved money and can life like other that have a car.

  5. I bought a used car last year and my observation was mileage, conservation and cost. I'm very happy about my car.

  6. For me i rather defenetly buy a New becuase i be the first owner and I can trust my car anywhere i go to. But if i buy a used car i dont know what did the other person did to it maybe alot of milage some accidents that had been fixed you never know sometimes you can even get ripped off. So if it was me i would buy a new car "Nissan Skyline R34" =D.

  7. I prefer to buy used car for low fee.
    So now, My car is used car.

  8. I'd rather to buy a brand new car,it's much better,because when you buy a used car you get a big problem always,the risks are so high.All cars are good when you give its maintenance appropriate,so the reliability factor is relative 'cause the most important is tht yo drive correctly.

  9. If I purchase a used car, on the paper, I will check it in this order: mileage, year and price. And then I will try to find out how many owners have been involved and whether it has any accident records because it would, otherwise, be difficult to guess its quality as long as I don’t go and see the car in person. Finally, if I find a car considered “decent”, I will contact the owner as soon as possible not to miss the car, and go and see it as a whole, especially, taking a hard look at the condition of the engine.

  11. I'm about to buy a car in June,2009
    and I think I'm going to buy a used car because It's cheep way to get a car and I don't have much money for paying new car. If I look for around and serch internet or conect peoples then I think there's better used car.

  12. Eeverything in this life depend on your budget as someone like me having a simple job in restaurant it's impossible to get a new brand car so people in my situation thier choices would be specified.
    i would like to buy a brand new car,safe,strong,but the main problem that i can't afford in addition to this there will be a high insurance.
    so used car are not as bad as people think about unless and drive correct and on the speed limit and checking the oil level and tyres as much as it supposed to be checked and by the way there are some places for selling car that offer warranties at least over than 6 months so that's awesome.

  13. If I need to buy a car, I definitly
    buy a brand new one.you don't know where a car comes from if you buy a second-hand car from a store or a seller.

  14. My daughter bought a second hand car from acar2go. It is very smooth.

  15. I will prefer a used car, because the new brand car is very expensive, but if you have a lot of money, you can just bye a new brand car. And I will consider
    1. Engine – how it works
    2. Body – it won’t be rusty
    3. Salon – should be clean, neat, won’t be smoky

  16. Hello,
    Of course it is better and more pleasantly to buy a brand new car, but they cost a lot so for a moment I prefer to buy a used car. There are some main factors I‘ll try to consider when I‘ll be choosing a car in the future. So that factors are: reliability, safety and the status of a car. The last thing has really huge influence for my choice because the car can be the newest but if it has many flaws and defects it really won‘t attract my attention on it.

  17. The factor in my mind when buying a car, a brand new or used would be my budget and after sale service.

  18. Buying a car

    Since I have had a driver's licence, I have had three cars: two used and one new. The used car always seems to have a problem. The first one was an electronic problem, the second one was an accident. Luckily, I have always fixed the problems with a postsale warranty or in accord with the salesman, but this is a drag! I bought my last car new with a special green incentive, but it's so hard to afford a brand new car! The most important thing is the postsale warranty.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think that is important doing a examination of the cars.
    For example we must consider the price and salescar's reputation.
    Other thing to be in your mind while you are buying a old or new one, is all the defects that this have.
    Look at the mileage, the year, gasoline spending.
    If it is in the range of your budget, then, go ahead.

  20. The most important one is expertise report. By means of it, I can easily detect how the car works. I also care about the reliability of dealer.

  21. Regards, I would prefer to buy a new car because it's safer for me and I would cosider first the price of the car and then their features.

  22. With myself, all things are always new. One new thing but less money than old thing more money...

    ReplyDelete
  23. I prefer buying a used car because I can save money to buy a car. but I will consider three thing when I buy a used car. First of all, I will check reliability of dealer. Second, I will review the history and examination of car for safety. Third, I will consider what kinds of guarantee plan it has.

    ReplyDelete
  24. A few months ago I bought a car, and the things that I considered were :first the dealer's reliability, second the mileage,third I take into account and review the car's history and in fourth place I made a research of the brand.

  26. I prefer to buy a used cars rather than a brand new cars. Used cars are more practical,cheaper and save you a lot of money too.

  27. the first important thing is safety. so I choice new car.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would want to buy a new car, at good warranty and take a low mileage gas. And I rely on the safety of the car because safety is the most important thing of driving a car, and buying a used car sometimes isn't good with safety like for example, if the driver who has already used it has once broken the engine then there's a chance you might crash into someone if the engine has something inside it or it mal-functioned again.

  29. I would like to buy a new mini van. The van has seven seats for all of my family, and it is very comfortable. It is a good car I dont have to spend money on repairs. I would make sure i buy it from a serious company. Cost is very important. Gas is very important because I can save more money the more milage per gallon.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I prefer to used car because absolutely high price for buying a new car make its cost depreciated every year. Either used or new one needs to repair or get maintenance unavoidably. I accept a new car is better in quality and feeling when I am the first owner but I think like buying smartphone, when I buy a car the car becomes old instantly but I prefer to a new phone because of affordable price.

  33. I think that y will prefer a new car because sometimes the uses car has legal problems, and maybe the own car cannot say you the problem. I don't know, this is my opinion

    ReplyDelete
  34. Well, I owned a car in 2012... so five years ago. And I hated it... It was so much trouble! It was an old car so it breaked all the time. If I had to buy a car, I would like it to be brand new. I know it's not a good investment, but for all the troubble I migth be saving, it's worth it... So reliability is my number 1 factor I guess. Of course, easy for me to say that because I now live in a city and don't think I will move anywhere else than another city...

  49. I think that buying car is not necessary for me. I'm so carsick. I will be queasy. I also have a headache after some days. And I am really scared at that.
    I can travel by car if the distance is under 10 kilometers. However, I can use motor instead of car with this distance because of the convenience of car.
    In the future, if I have to buy car, I will buy a roadster. It is more airy than other type.

  50. In my point of view, if you are going to buy a new car, you have to pay attention about the brand, because there are brands that produce cars with a good durability, for example: Toyota and Honda.The price of those cars changes slowly if you compare them with popular cars.

  53. When you choose to buy a car, I think it should be a new one to reduce the probability of fails and corrective maintenance spent. Once you have the choice to buying a new car, will be important to analyze the type of use that you will give to the car, because in function it, will be important to check the price, gasoline consumption and car’s safety systems. Finally, the primary satisfaction of have a car is to move the people from one place to another place, on safety and economically form. For this reason, my recommendation when you choose to buy a new car, it is necessary to use an analytical and economic thought to make a correct investment and avoid losing money. Thanks

  55. In my near future I'd like to buy Toyota. I can't say right now what kind of car it will be, but it won't be new, cause I don't have much money to buy the new one. Of course, I won't buy russian cars, because they are not the good quality. But if I have to buy the new one, I'll do it!

  56. i don't have recommend using cars. I just like driving motorbike or taxi. Of course driving your own car is safer. The first factor I buy a car is the reputation of the company. The reputation of the car is famous so the car is good too, like: ford, L, Toyota. I hate using second hand car. Maybe the cost of repairing is more expensive than the cost of the cả and it takes lost of time. The second is the white car, i only like white. The safe reliability is so important

  73. Honestly I will not buy a used car again. My first car that I bought was used, and although it was very good, over time it was difficult to find spare parts. On the contrary, if the car I bought was manufactured with the same characteristics, of course I buy it immediately and without thinking twice.

  75. I want to buy a used car more. The reason is that I am a careless person, so it is easy for me to do bad to my car. A tough used car is the best choice for the type of person like me. Surely, I will notice and consider about almost aspects of the car I will buy. Before choicing car matching to me, I will study clearly about parts of car: price, model, origin, mileage,... Although choicing the old car, I of course do not use a really really really old car, it must be a little bit catchy.
