Frequently asked questions

When buying a car, you should consider the following factors:

1. Fuel economy: Ensure you'll be comfortable with the running costs of the vehicle for your day-to-day use.

2. Price: Consider not only the purchase price but also associated taxes, insurance costs, and maintenance when budgeting.

3. Ratings: Look to how existing owners of that vehicle feel (such as CarMax's vehicle owner reviews) and also professional services (such as RepairPal reliability ratings).

4. Dimensions: Ensure the exterior size of the vehicle is something you can easily park (whether in a garage, a lot, or on the street) and that the interior size will fit your lifestyle (such as adequate space for passengers or car seats).

5. Technology: Check out the technology features (both infotainment and driver assistance features) that can enhance your driving experience.

Remember, the right car for you depends on your specific needs and lifestyle.
