.......so much fun to get a new vehicle! Of course, I am into Ford Motor Company products and the technology and advancements in design, safety, fuel efficiency just make me more committed. Shopping for a vehicle tips. 1. Put your list together on things that you like inside your car 2. Your budget 3. Your wish list. Then put a second list together...what is the priorties on your first list.. Test Drive. Yes, this takes time and trust in a dealership but you owe it to yourself to get into the vehicle and drive it..more than once before purchasing. Warranties. Regardless of the made or model. Do yourself a favor and buy a warranty. ANYTHING manufacturered can have problems..clothing, baby cribs and cars. Combined this with previous owner or owners maintenance or driving can surprise even the best of technicians or new owners.
