Fuel Economy and How/Why to Figure it Out
A while back Sarah wrote a post about buying a “new to us” car. When buying a car there are so many things to consider – so many features to balance. How much the car has been driven, if there have been any accidents or liens put on the car, signs of rust or other factors about condition. You need to factor in style – SUV, sedan, truck, coupe, crossover. Then there are design features like sunroof, backup cameras, paint colour and navigation consoles. One stat that people always look at, even if they don’t understand it, is the fuel economy. This is a very important factor in the ongoing cost of the vehicle. I doubt I’m alone in not giving it fair play in terms of the financial decisions involved with a car purchase.
