Not everyone can afford brand new cars. Not everyone can even buy a car. Some will opt to go for motorcycles instead while others go hunt and browse over used car book prices. It is not bad to buy used cars especially when you are being practical. There are pros and cons to everything, so as buying used cars.

We own a motorcycle which came as a surprise to me. I was sort of expecting it already when hubby bought the motorcycle but was hopeful that he will go for a used car instead since we are already a family. Aside from the fact that there were great deals from car dealers offered to him at that time. I was excited yet a little disappointed when he drove a brand new motorcycle back home, I have to admit.

Comfort in Used Cars

Anyways, I am still wanting to have our own car after buying the house. A second-hand or used car is okay with me just as long as the four of us will comfortably fit in. There’s just a feeling of home when you travel with family together.


Since we are one of the families that can’t afford high-end brand new cars, we will go for second hands instead. I have read that buying used cars is quite hard – quality and value are always at risk. Even so, I think I still agree that old and used cars are much more reliable especially if it’s well-loved by the previous owner. One of my cousins bought a used car from a friend. Even if it was not really the model she wanted, knowing the car was well maintained and taken care of by a female owner, she made a deal.

Repair Costs

Besides reliability, one should also consider possible repair costs, insurance, and safety. Now, these are just very few of the things to consider. It can’t be guaranteed that the car would be working at its best since it’s been used before. So make sure to check it before buying. The point is, that there is real practicality in used cars even if most women do not really know “everything” about them. Although we try to get to know more about cars, it is still a guy thing. So make sure you have someone knowledgeable of cars when you go for a look.


Another thing to consider when getting a second-hand car is insurance. It’s practical to have car insurance ensuring financial protection against possible damage from any type of vehicle incident that may occur. Thus, having car insurance is really important.  There are many uses for car insurance and the best reason to have it is for peace of mind.

  1. About using motorcycles, my aunt told me that you are also like putting your one foot on the grave. It’s really unsafe, especially you have kids pa.

  2. Pros:
    Help reduce your transportation costs.
    Can easily pass thru congested traffic.

    Really not safe. Lot of accident happens especially rainy season because of hydroplaning.
