i was just thinking, instead of every now and then we see ppl asking this car or that car, why not we have a place to share all our buying decision process. Everyone has a different buying process, depending on priority. So share share here what is yours.
in fact its quite funny to see ppl copy and paste technical information, when sgcarmart has a function where we can compare 3-4 cars side by side. It even has a green tick to indicate which car has the best feature in that comparison.
I think a compile thread of a buying process may help some who have no idea what they want. But they want to buy.
What i use:
I want to change car/I need to change car.
My budget (fix range), any price below or above is out.
type of car
New or used
searching the internal for information related to the range identified from step 1
feel the car
features and requirements.
final short list
Finally, negotiate and BUY the one you like most!
from 1000cc to 3500cc, from new cars to 9 yr old cars, there are at least a few hundred models to choose from. $90000 cash can buy you a brand new PRC made car in full cash, it can also buy you a used big conti car with a loan. Not to mention the inbetweens.
So have a buying process, it can help you save alot of time and headache.
