It is very important to choose a car that can keep you and your loved ones as safe as possible but when you are faced with car showrooms full of different cars, how do you know which is the safest for your needs? When buying a car, I like to know how safe it is likely to be for the driver, passengers and pedestrians. I would feel much safer knowing that a car I owned and used regularly would keep me and my family, as well as others outside the car, in the event of an accident.

Car size is something to consider when buying a car. I currently have a three-door car but I find it very difficult to move my daughter’s car seat in an out of it when I need to. It is always a very difficult task. My previous, five-door car was much more useful for this job. For us, I would hope to have a five-door car again one day. I think this would suit our needs more.

With the addition of a dog to our family unit, the size of the boot is important too. We take Floppy with us just about everywhere we go. It is important to our family to have a car that can accommodate the dog as well as being big enough to also carry some of our luggage. Thinking about how you use the space within your car and how your current car measures up to your ideal standard, is a useful indicator when thinking about buying a new car.


Cost is a very important factor to consider when buying a new car. It would be wonderful to have an infinite amount of money to enable each of us to buy our dream cars. Sadly, most of us are limited by budget. This is why it is important to think about which features are most important to you when you are thinking about purchasing a new vehicle. It is also useful to think about which features you would be happy to compromise on to keep within your budget.
