Car Economics: What You Must Know Before Buying A Car

Ever wondered why small home or office paper printers are affordable? This is a very simple marketing strategy, you are actually not buying the printer but the ink cartridges. The printers are just reasons for you to buy the ink, after all what is a printer without it’s ink. The same goes for mobile phones and the airtime. Telecom giants knows that you can’t have a phone without recharging, so this brings about a steady means of demand to buy airtime credits. All major consumer goods manufactures including automobile manufacturers knows that maintenance is the money machine and so should you when thinking of a car to buy. Buying a new car is a huge financial decision that requires some thoughtful and responsible planning to ensure you’ll be able to afford it. Affording a car doesn’t mean you can maintain it on the long-run. With this knowledge, these are things you should consider before making a move to the auto market.

Sometimes people get confused about the configurations of car engines. There are two things to consider—-The number of cylinders and the litres of each cylinder which is commonly indicated on the back of the car. The more the number of cylinders, the more the output power of the car and also the more the fuel it consumes.

Depending on the expectation of your dream car, if you are more interested in the speed and performance, you won’t mind going to the fueling stations often but if you are considering saving money on petrol, it’s better to stick to a lower number of cylinders in the engine. The litre of the car cylinder simply means the volume of petrol and compressed air that can be taken into the cylinder per combustion. So the larger the volume, the more fuel it takes in. You might want to watch out for that too.
