Is it time to rethink the family vehicle? Or maybe upgrade from your first car to your dream car? It can be hard to adjust to the idea of a new set of wheels, but every dog has its day and unfortunately, your trusted vehicle may be coming to the end of its life… Here are five signs that it may be time to retire your vehicle and purchase a new one.

  1. Your Lifestyle Has Changed, But Your Car Has Not

From your first job, starting a family, moving city, or just needing something new in your life, your car needs to adapt with you. Sometimes, that involves an upgrade! It is important to find a vehicle that is suited to your lifestyle – if you’re a tradesman, then a small Toyota Yaris may not make the best work vehicle. And if you’re a parent needing to fit car-seats in the back, you won’t get them inside an Audi TT. Whatever it is, if your vehicle is starting to be less useful and more of an inconvenience then it may be time to consider purchasing a new one. Purchasing a new car is a big decision and investment, so make sure you find one perfectly suited to your lifestyle.

  1. The Check Engine Light Is Always On

It’s quite normal for your check engine light to flash away once in a blue moon. But as time goes on and the kilometres on your dashboard increase, your vehicle will need more care and attention to the finer details (like your check engine light). This includes repairs, ongoing maintenance, and growing mechanical bills.

If the Check Engine Light is coming on frequently, then there may be a more serious and expensive problem waiting around the corner; potentially requiring repairs. That could mean buying a brand-new car is a more cost-effective option.

  1. Fuel Efficiency Technology

Ever taken notice of how fast technology is evolving?! Each year the technology available in new vehicles increases and this includes fuel efficiency. With some of the latest advances, you could cut your fuel costs in half, depending on the type of vehicle you drive. Plus, the environment will thank you for it too!  If you’re constantly at the servo fuelling-up, it may be time to upgrade to a more fuel-efficient vehicle.

  1. Improved Safety Features

Your car may be the most reliable vehicle on road. But if it’s older, your safety features may be outdated. You’ll want a modern vehicle with multiple airbags, blind spot monitoring, rearview camera, stability control, parking assist, etc. Sound safer? Comforting? These safety features may make upgrading your wheels well worth the investment.

  1. Crave That New Car Smell?

You may find yourself browsing through dealership websites in your free-time, or maybe you’re constantly flipping through auto magazines. Craving that new car smell? It can become addictive! Just know that you’re not alone – it’s okay to purchase a new vehicle just because you want to.
