The Financial Choices to Consider When Buying a Car

If you want to buy a car on finance you will be able to do that by finding a good dealer online. Whilst it is not the only way to finance a deal, hire purchase is the option that most people select.

You may not need a deposit and even spread the finance as long as five years as long as you realise that the longer the term, the more interest you will pay. It is a matter of balancing affordability with the price you are paying.


Buying a car can be exciting. You shouldn’t get carried away and see a sleek model and go ahead and buy it just because it looks nice. You need to find a reliable dealer who has cars that it has thoroughly checked before taking them on and will complete a further final check when you come along to buy so that you can feel confident as you drive away.

It takes the potential risk out of buying a car that already has a history. If you see that there is a warranty for a few months as well that will guard against any oversight that shouldn’t happen but possibly can.

The vehicle effectively belongs to the financiers until the final instalment of any hire purchase is paid. When that final payment is made you will finally own the car. If you prefer and can afford it you can pay back the borrowings in just twelve months; certainly more expensive per month but it may be all you need to do to get your car.

Personal loan

You may decide that you want to take out a personal loan as an alternative. That is a loan against you as a person rather than the vehicle and if your status can justify more than the car value so that you have a surplus you can do so. That can perhaps be used to pay anything outstanding on your current vehicle.

Contract purchase

There is another alternative and that is a contract purchase whereby you have a choice at the end of the borrowings what happens next. One of the ingredients in this is the value of the car which is a way to reduce monthly payments. When the payments are completed you can simply buy the car by paying the agreed value, part exchange it or simply hand it back and possibly begin all over again. It means a new car every three years or so and can be done with cars that are still fairly new.

If you have been a careful driver and the car is regularly serviced it may be well worth your while keeping the vehicle if it has proved reliable.

At thecarpeople.co.uk you will be able to get a choice of cars in all price ranges and alternative financial deals depending on your needs. It makes sense to finance a car that you expect to run for a while and the website will explain how you can do it.

All-new Jaguar F-Type Coupe & R

5-liter supercharged V8 engine and will reach 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph (electronically limited)2. The F-TYPE S Coupe and F-TYPE Coupe are powered by 3-liter supercharged V6 engines in 380hp and 340hp forms respectively, giving 0-60 mph in 4.8/5.1 seconds and top speeds of 171/161 mph2.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.

The second heart line begins at the rear edge of the door, swelling outwards and upwards to create a visually strong wheel arch, emphasizing the car’s rear-wheel drive layout, before dropping vertically through the tail lamp ...
