What seniors should look for when buying a car
As we age, we need to evaluate exactly what we want from a vehicle. Someone young and single might want a performance car, people with budding families, space and cargo seem important, but seniors often have specific car wants.
Value is important for many seniors who live on a fixed income. And while the cost of the car is important, it is equally important to find a car that requires minimal maintenance and insurance costs and is economic to run.
With amazing new safety features, seniors can worry less. Consider features like collision warning, auto-emergency braking, driver drowsiness monitor, forward collision warning, rearview camera, lane departure warning, blind spot monitor warning, traction control, stability control, side airbags and more. Plus, consider where the infotainment console is located. To retain your line of forward sight, find a console situated high up on the dashboard.
For some, comfort and mobility play a role; you may want to consider a car that is easy to get in and out of, lumbar support, roomy seats and possibly a hatchback so cargo doesn't have to be lifted out of a trunk.
At Lance's Superior Auto, we know cars and can talk about your car's features. Plus, once you find that perfect car, we can set up a maintenance schedule to keep your car running smoothly and avoiding repairs.
