So as the title says I am about to purchase my first car in the next month or so and I would like some opinions and input on various things.
I’ll start off by saying that I am 26 year old male and am only now about to get my Drivers liscence.I Have never had insurance, And have no credit good or bad.
I am leaning toward paying straight cash for a used vehicle and I want some advice about how I should approach going to a dealer , What to look for or look out for. Right now I had been shopping around in my area mostly online and My heart is leaning towards a used ford ranger anywhere between 07-10 or a Mitsubishi lancer roughly around the same year range. generally i’ve heard most dealers would prefer to sell financed over straight cash but I would actually rather avoiding that method.
So overall Id like some general input on insurance the most , I am aware that it could be quite costly being a new driver but I am wondering what factors into it ? Does my age help at all being that I am 26 and just beginning to drive and the fact that I live in a part of Rural Canada that’s a long way away from any city driving? Unfortunately growing up I never had parents to fend for me I had to always fend for myself and to be able to get my drivers liscence I had to make my own money to buy a vehicle, I had no help whatsoever.
Any Advice to a new car owner and new driver is welcome.
