Warm up for winter in an SUV

An SUV (or Sport Utility Vehicle) is a great investment, not just for the winter months. Similar to station wagons, most SUVs have four-wheel drive, for on or off-road use. Whether you’re interested in the new Jeep SUV range or maybe the Toyota RAV4, our guide to SUVs will tell you all you need to know, so why not take a few minutes to read through and see if they’re the right choice for you?

Buying new or used

Whether to buy a new or used SUV is a personal choice which will largely depend upon the following factors:

• Your available budget

• The vehicles available to buy in your area

• Your choice of make and model

Of course, buying a used car means you’ll need to make sure you’re getting a great deal for your money, and you’ll need to look at the age of the vehicle as well as the mileage and other signs of wear and tear before deciding to buy. Buying new has its advantages, but you’ll usually pay more for a new car, although this could lower your car insurance premiums.

Where to buy

When it comes to buying an SUV, there are plenty of websites where you can find great deals. From local dealerships to online auction sites and classified listings, there are many options to choose from. You’re more likely to pay a higher price through a dealership, however, you’ll also have the peace of mind that you’re buying an SUV which is roadworthy – you’ll also usually receive a warranty for 3 or 6 months (this could be 12 months if you’re buying a new vehicle). It’s a good idea to shop around and compare prices, particularly if there is a certain make or model of SUV you’re looking for – prices can vary between dealerships, and some may be willing to throw in extras if you mention you have seen a better deal elsewhere.

Pay the right price

If shopping for a specific make or model of SUV, you’ll find reviews and information on a guide price online, which can help you to make sure you’re getting a good deal. This is particularly useful if you’re purchasing a new car or are inexperienced at buying a car – the information will help you to make an informed decision. You should always visit the dealership or seller to view the vehicle before paying and ensure you test drive it too, to make sure you know what you’re getting for your money! It can often be worthwhile paying for an HPI check too, to ensure there is no outstanding finance on your used SUV and to make sure it hasn’t been previously written off or stolen.
