It has been a tough year, with a global pandemic still ongoing, we are all in scary and unprecedented times,  many people are unsure if they will have a job by the end of the year, so understandably we are all holding onto every penny we can.

But a good reliable car is almost a necessity these days, so If you are in a situation where you need to buy a new one, you will most certainly be looking for the best deal you can find, more and more people are looking at all the factors on how they can save money when they do purchase a car.

More than ever fuel economy will play a part when you are looking at buying a new car, Insurance and running costs are also an important part of deciding which car to go for.

Most of us know it is better value to go for a used car rather than a new due to the instant depreciation as soon as you drive a new car off the forecourt, so we have put together a list of things to look for when buying a used car to make sure you are getting the best value for money.

1.       CO2 emissions, the lower the Co2 emissions the less you will have to pay on road tax, fuel-efficient cars and electric models have very low road tax, some even have zero road tax so do your research on this before you buy!

2.       miles to the gallon, find out how many miles to the gallon you get from a car before you buy it, let's face it fuel prices very rarely drop so making sure you buy a car with a good fuel economy is always a good idea.

3.       A good finance deal, most of us do not have the money to buy a car outright so speak to your car salesperson and ask them to search for the best finance deals available. Here at Motor Market we are finance experts so let us find the right deal for you and your pocket.

4.       Petrol or Diesel? Some people assume diesel cars are more economical than petrol ones, but diesel cars are usually more expensive to buy in the first place and at the pump, the price will be higher than petrol, so it is worth considering this when deciding which one to go for.
