Here are 5 fabulous tips to bag the most perfect car for you:

1. Relate your car to your future. Unless you are Bill Gates or Oprah, you're still an average Joe who's purchasing a car simply because you need one. It means that you will be counting years before you will even think of purchasing a new one. That's why it's very important that your automobile will be able to cope with the changing times and to your future lifestyle. If, in three years' time, you believe you're going to be a manager of a company, surely, you need a car that doesn't depreciate so easily. Moreover, if there will be little kids coming, your automobile should be able to accommodate your growing family and other items you may have to need when all of you will go on vacation.

2. Check their reputation. They may come from the best manufacturers, but it doesn't mean they are the best. There are still some cars that don't pass the judgment of consumers and car enthusiasts for different reasons. Perhaps there's something amiss with its specifications or that the car didn't pass safety tests. You can verify their reputation by visiting the website of National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at http://www.nhtsa.gov.

3. Familiarize yourself with the features. There are certain cars that may appear the same to you, but the other one is more expensive. This difference can be attributed to the difference in their features. For example, car A may have a DVD player while the car B only has a stereo. You can also associate the features with your needs. For example, if you are a constant traveler, you may need an automobile that has large storage capacity for all your baggage. Again, if you don't have that much money, focus first on your needs rather than your wants. You can always add other features later, when you already have something to burn.

4. Settle for a car with superb theft prevention feature. You may have your car insurance, but still you can't regain the car that is already stolen, unless, of course, police are fast enough to locate it. Make sure that your chosen car has the best anti-theft feature such as autolock system.

5. Match your car with your personality. In the end, it all boils down if it's the car that you are definitely looking for or not. It's not good to be driving around in an automobile that you don't feel comfortable or doesn't fit your character, your lifestyle, and your interest.

Cars can be your best friend for so many years, so don't make a mistake in choosing a wrong one today.
