Have you ever owned a car? …….Have you ever owned another car and sold the other one off just before it could die on you?
If Yes on both cases, read to the end!
If No still read for the sake of knowledge 🙂
I would quote so many things said by motoring gurus round the world but since you might not relate much, here is what i pulled off the Car Clinic from our very own… [SIDENOTE… Car Clinic is published on daily nation every Thursday]
“There is a time when the engine comes to the end of its usefulness, and that depends on how it was use”
So the big question is what happens when it gets there? Assuming you didn’t buy the vehicle to park it outside your house …which by the way to offer you some motoring advice …parking your car for long is not clever saving tactic, its better you wouldn’t have bought it.
But before that, here is what you should hold in your pre-frontal lobe just for the sake of this write up;
From Consumer Reports from 2006 (www.consumerreports.org/), average life span of a new vehicle these days is around 8 years. Of course, some well-built vehicles can go 15 years , if properly maintained
In Kenya we get cars that are already 8 years old (refer to array index  above) which means you get a merchandise that is on its way out to the car gods.
The whole car industry is worth about 200 billion and this is according to a survey done back in 2016….and am sure no one would mind biting a part of that money.
