The excitement of getting your first car might land you in debt if you have no knowledge of how to go about it.
CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies speaks to motoring expert, Adam Ford about the do's and dont's when you purchase a vehicle for the very first time.
Ford advises first time buyers to look at their budget and buy a car they can afford.
Do I buy it cash or do I buy something newer that I can pay monthly and spend less on maintenance? These are the kind of questions you need to ask yourself before you work out what you want to buy.— Adam Ford, motoring expert
Secondly, Ford advises buyers to look at what is covered in terms of a motor plan. He says if you buy a new car you have a 3-year motor plan or service plan as part of the deal
It is important when it comes to long term ownership to know what is covered. If not, you have to look at parts availability.— Adam Ford, motoring expert
