Over the years you have developed certain feelings towards your car (positive or negative) that will influence your next purchase. Maybe the overall appeal and design are great, but the transmission is questionable and you constantly find yourself at the repair shop. When purchasing a new car, all of the features and benefits should be evaluated to ensure you are making the correct decision. Ironically, there are so many relevant features to new cars (safety, gas mileage, reliability) that take a back seat during the purchase decision while the buyers choose to place emphasis solely on the exterior.
