The deal is NOBODY wants to purchase a commodity that may turn out a liability to them, more reason why it takes a long time before people finalize on the brand and model of cars they want to settle for. The watchword for every purchase is “quality whilst maintaining your wallet”; always go for quality and pocket friendly commodities.

As a salary earner or business man, you should learn to work within the auspices of your income; going overboard your income or earnings will be bad for business.

A vehicle will serve its purpose but it was designed to be serviced monthly or bi-monthly, some vehicles demand high end servicing while others can be done at home.

It is advisable as a car owner to have spare money stashed somewhere for the welfare of your car because a car is a machine and it can never be 100% reliable at all times, this money can be used for any emergency that has to do with the car from normal servicing to repairs and change of damaged or faulty parts.
