Test driving new-to-you cars is fun, but you have to remember that you will be living with your purchase for a long time. The excitement of buying a new car can cloud your judgment and make you miss something important. Here are a few tips to help you make a decision that you will be happy with for a long time.

The first tip is to do your research. Make a list of wants and a list of things that you do not want. Prioritize them and take the list with you. Before you agree to the purchase, take a break and spend some time with your list. Is there anything that you forgot to check? Also, try to give it some time between when you test drive the car and when you purchase it. If you can, a day is preferable.
