Buying a used car can be an exciting opportunity for many. Although new cars are beneficial, they don’t provide much value to you, the buyer. New cars are only advantageous to the seller. However used cars can save you thousands of dollars.

Generally, the value of a new car drops as soon as you buy it and you should consider buying a used car that has already taken the huge depreciation hit.

Buying a used car is not as simple as you may think. Unlike new cars, you have to do everything yourself. To get a quality used car, you have to make your research and find the right used car for you.

This article focuses on the 5 most important things you should consider before buying a used car to make the task less stressful for you.

Determine the Car You Need and Research

Car shopping can be as exciting as it is tedious. Before buying a used car, you have to define the type of car you need to prevent any stress that may ensue. To make it all easier, search online and write down what you need in a car. How many are you in your household? How many are going to ride with you? Is it really necessary to have a high-end entertainment system? These are the questions you should ask yourself before buying a used car. A small model may not be suitable for a family and those who drive with high mileage will consider a car’s fuel frequency. It all depends on your lifestyle.

Having done that, do thorough research on what car is perfect for you since you now know what you want. With this age of the internet, anything can be found online. Therefore before going to a dealership without a specific car in mind, you should research online for the perfect fit for you and get the best prices without being convinced by a highly persuasive salesperson.

Define Your Budget

Before you buy a used car, determine your budget and stick to it. Don’t let anyone persuade you to change your price range. Have a clear price in mind and do not sway from it. You shouldn’t also reveal it to the seller as this gives you negotiating power. Be willing to negotiate as much as you can to get your desired price.

When setting your used car budget include extra costs that will be incurred not only the overall price of the car. These can include money for any repairs required, that of inspection and anything else that may be needed. It is important to set aside that money hence avoiding problems later on.

Test Drive and Review the Vehicle’s History

Having looked at the prices of the car you desire and your given budget in place, it is extremely important to test how the car you are purchasing works before actually buying it. Make sure you a test drive on the highway, side street and wherever else is needed to examine the car’s performance. 

To avoid any future problems, you should review the vehicle’s history. The mere fact that you have scanned and test-driven the car and everything looks perfect does not mean it is. Some used cars may reveal internal damages that cannot be ignored even though everything looks perfect on the outside.

Request a Pre-Purchase Inspection

This is an important step to follow when buying a used car. Make sure the vehicle you are purchasing is what it is by requesting a pre-purchase inspection. Sometimes the car may have difficult issues underneath the surface that a seller may not be aware of.

It is therefore relevant to have a mechanic inspect the car for you before making a purchase.

Complete the Transaction or Walk Away

Before thinking about closing a transaction, you should become accustomed to negotiation as it is the key to closing a good deal. When completing the deal, your negotiation skills should be on point. If you don’t think you can achieve that, take a more confident person with you to assist with that if you think you may be influenced to change your terms.

The most relevant factor you should consider is the paperwork required. The appropriate paperwork should be in order and anything associated with the car like warranties have to be accounted for.

Therefore when buying a used car, the above-mentioned factors should be considered. A used car is an affordable and efficient means of transport. You should focus on the right vehicle that will fit your needs.

Japan is a giant global producer in all almost every sector, from foods, Electronics, pieces of machinery and not forgetting the most obvious, automobiles. Japan is so far the world’s most renowned producer of a large percentage of cars driven globally. Big brands such as Toyota, Honda, Mazda, Subaru, and Nissan are all but just the tip of the ice burg are produced in Japan. America too cannot be left from the list as it also contributes a lot to the automobile sector. We have the Ford, Chevrolet, Jeep, Ram, GMC, and Cadillac. Both countries’ giant car companies try everything new to combat the constant competition that is between them. However, considering a large array of factors, Japan remains to carry the day. One of the key factors bringing about competition between the two countries is maintenance. Many drivers wish to own cars that are less problematic and less demanding. Maintenance is the issue here. Japan once again wins this one. This article will answer the most common question which is why Japanese cars need less maintenance compared to American ones.

Driving without a car extended warranty on either a Japanese or American car is something you really should never try. Are you not afraid of the sudden faults and damages which just happen without earlier warning? You end up spending a lot on fixing and repairing problems which would not be a great deal if you had an extended warranty. An extended warranty works by taking charge of expenses that come as a result of sudden breakdowns. In other words, you won’t spend your hard-earned money to get your car in good form. Hurry and come get an extended warranty from us at A-Protect Warranty Corporation.


Japanese cars are not that classy and high-end, unlike American ones.


Most Japanese cars are not that classy and high-end in nature compared to their American counterparts. The likes of Mazda, Subaru, Honda, and Toyota majorly base on producing affordable and average-performing cars that certainly get purchased by a huge population. The American models such as Jeep, Cadillac and Ford, engineer their models to sophisticated levels and super performance. American cars are rich in luxury and class. Just like the German ones. This makes them a bit expensive in terms of maintenance. A damaged transmission system for example in a Mazda will only cost you under $1500. When you compare that to the damaged transmission system of a Cadillac, Chrysler or so, the cost goes threefold up. The good news is that with an extended warranty, you are guaranteed security for your wallet and car. It doesn’t matter how big a problem is. As long as it is secured under an extended warranty, show no worry at all.


Cars made in Japan are durable and quality in nature.


Japanese automakers who have been in existence for a long time now can attest to that. The likes of Toyota can confirm that the skill and engineering used to produce their models is a no-brainer. This is also visible with consumer satisfaction. These cars are made with top-notch raw materials under the hands of qualified personnel. That guarantees long-term usage and minimal breakdowns. Used cars from Japan prove this point. There are tons of used Japanese cars on our roads that perform incredibly fine with minimal disturbance. Before being exported to their various destinations globally, these cars go through a thorough check of quality assurance. When you finally get your car, it feels as-new. This clearly shows the quality and durability in them and will therefore need less attention in terms of maintenance.



Japan is arguably the reigning champ in automobile production and not only does it produce good cars but ones that need less maintenance. This fact might be soothing but should not make you ignore care and maintenance for your car. Your car will still need your attention no matter what. You don’t want to keep on paying repair bills for that problematic car. Come on! You need an extended warranty. We offer the best-extended warranties in the market.

The unforgettable feeling that comes when you purchase that brand new whip that is sparkling and attractive vanishes too quickly if you pass your car through harsh conditions. The shiny and appealing exterior, the cool and comfy-rich interior, silent and powerful engine, and a stable suspension are what many new car owners would wish their cars to be in a couple of years to come. However, that dream gets shattered and everything turns into a mess. Engine noise and vibrations become common, the car’s handling gets unstable and generally, the cars just get too problematic to the extent of total stalling. All that happening will depend heavily on how the car is handled, driven, and taken care of. Just like any other asset out there, cars needs to be cherished and treated in the right manner. How you drive your car while new will have a huge impact on its condition come a couple of years ahead.

Here are the ten mistakes that you must at all cost avoid if you wish your car to drive like new more years to come.


  1. Ignoring an oil change.

Oil is very essential to the engine life of a car. As we all know, the engine is like the heart of a car. Oil aids in cooling the engine and provide lubrication to the internal parts of the engine. Heat is always generated by the internal moving parts and needs to be cooled or else the possibility of an explosion is high. At the same time, the internal parts grind against each other as they move. The friction generated increases wear and tear which gives the engine a slow death. Never miss an oil change no matter what.

  1. Never use the wrong oil.

When getting an oil change, you need to be extra keen not to use the wrong oil rather than the one advised to. Different types of oil come with different types of features such as viscosity. This affects the rate at which the internal parts of the engine spins that’s regulating the power produced.


  1. You should never use a dishwashing detergent to wash your car.


Dishwashing detergents are designed to combat food remnants, oil, and grease. Using them on your car is risky since you expose the car’s paint, cost, or wax to a great threat. This is because dishwashing detergents will want to clear the vital oil property in the paint.


  1. Driving with old fuel and air filters.


Both fuel and oil filters are never meant to last forever. With time, they depreciate in quality thus a reduction in their effectiveness to clean dirt and other harmful compounds. You need to replace them over time so as to keep your car in tip-top shape.


  1. Not following a scheduled service.


After driving for a certain given mile, you are required to take your car to a nearby service center for extensive extermination by a professional. This will help in noting out problems that might be too hard to see and generally put your cat in a good shape.


  1. Poor cleaning routine.


In order to get a perfect and smooth running car, cleanliness is usually the number one remedy in doing so. You need to have and follow a strict cleaning routine so as your car might drive and feel new for longer. Dirt and dust attract problems and breakdowns.


  1. Driving with worn-out tires.


Not only does it put you under the police watch but poses a great risk to the safety of those in a car and passengers. Driving on worn-out tires is very risky. The chances of getting a bust are usually high. Always regularly check with your tires for any cracks or gouges.


  1. Ignoring tire pressure.


You must make sure that your car’s tires are properly inflated at all times before hitting the road. Never drive on overinflated tires or on underinflated tires. On both tires, chances of damage and accidents are very high. Avoid any problems that might come along by always driving on properly inflated tires.

  1. Avoiding visual inspection.


Taking a quick walk around your car and opening the hood to check with the bonnet parts is very wise. You should never ignore the fact that your car is always in good form. Low tires pressure and reduced fluid levels are common. A visual inspection will really help to note out all that and so much more.


  1. Mixing fuel or using the wrong fuel.


This is a direct ticket to the death of your car’s engine. Mixing fuels is something you should never find yourself doing. One common mistake is using diesel in gas cars. This is very harmful to your engine. It is much more of a disaster than mixing premium and regular gas. Either way, always ensures you avoid any mistakes while fuelling.




The above mistakes are what turns your brand new clean car into a rusty old car in the years to come. Without much care and protection, don’t be surprised by towering your once precious machine to its graveyard while it’s still early. An extended warranty in this case will be of good aid. You need it so as to combat unexpected expenses that come as a result of breakdowns. An extended warrant will also help keep your car in a pristine and new look more years to come.

Purchasing a brand new car can be easy, quick, and fun, and at the same time, the process can be tiresome boring, and hectic. Getting a brand new car, in general, is never a walk in the park as you may think of. You need to have factors that will drive you to pick the right and perfect match and just the car that suits you. In this case, getting an AUDI will always depend on various factors which need to be considered. AUDI is a German machine and as we all know, Germany never disappoints when it comes to making quality and luxurious cars. The brand is known to produce high-end cars rich in class and extra performance which most first-time car owners would wish for. Well, you just can’t rush into a car dealership or showroom and pick your choice and drive off. No!, that is not the right way to go about it. 

This article will help you get to know the factors to always consider when buying an AUDI be it new or used. An extended warranty is a necessity too while making a purchase. When new, the AUDI comes with the original factory warranty. However, it does not last long or covers extensively as an extended warranty would do. An extended warranty works more and is meant to last longer thus putting your car in good form and shape. When the factory warranty expires, an extended warranty comes in and helps you handle unexpected expenses and breakdowns which perhaps maybe too much for you. Check out A-Protect Warranty Corporation for more information. Keep reading!




Like purchasing any other thing out here, a budget is always a necessity before getting that AUDI you desire. Because AUDI is a high-end luxury car, your budget needs to be a little bit high and more. You need to set a budget depending on the specific model you need. There are a variety of brands from which you can pick. We have the least expensive model which is the AUDI A3 Sedan starting at $38,900 and the most expensive starting at over $100,000. You can only pick a car that is equivalent to your wallet. If you opt to get a loan then have a budget set to help you pay it out. Budget is very important not only in purchasing the car but other extra charges that will come along. That is car registration, insurance, and a warranty. Service and maintenance will also need to be included in your budget. In this scenario, a carefully and well-structured budget will work best.


  1. Fuel economy.


This is another important factor to consider before laying hands on your new or used AUDI car. Fuel is still in use in also 99% of cars produced globally. This makes fuel a most important asset thus more dependable and reliable to use. Actually what runs the world’s economy is fuel. This makes it go up in terms of value thereby coming at a cost. In these current days, the international prices per gallon have hiked thus spreading its effects to the grassroots. The amount you spend to fuel up your car will depend on the model. There are fuel guzzlers and at the same times fuel economizers. It alL depends on which model to pick. The introduction of hybrid cars and electric AUDI’s is an option still. 


  1. Engine capacity.


The performance of a car depends on so many factors with engine power being on the front line. AUDI never disappoints when it comes to engine size and powers. However, not all models have the same engine features. The more and stronger the engine is, the better.


  1. Safety.


A guaranteed safety to the lives of those in a car is very vital and needs to be top-notch before picking on a car. When it comes to safety, AUDI carries the day with its pristine and unmatched safety features. All AUDI cars are equipped with modern and advanced features such as cruise control, AUDI pre-sense, Night vision assistance, turn to assist and collision avoidance assist.


  1. Mileage(if the car is used).


Mileage is a measure of the amount of distance the car has been driven. It is an important aspect, especially when getting a used car. A car with more mileage on it means that it has been used for a long thus might not be in good form. For a low mileage car, most of the car’s parts are in good form and shape thus more suitable.




From the above information, we can point out that getting a brand new AUDI is not that swift and easy. There are tons of factors to watch out for before heading and getting one for yourself. An extended warranty will be of great help and importance to your car. Damages and breakdowns are very common and unpredictable. Your car can be a victim at any time and anywhere.

Colour is one very important thing in the lives of us humans. Colour communicates and speaks with the outside world of what we are made of in the inner side. We always want to get better things in life that satisfy our needs. There will always be options to what we need and you need criteria to pick out what stands out and suits you well. One factor that helps you in that quest is color. Colour carries and expresses desires, emotions, and our inner personalities of who we are. Shopping for a car for instance is usually not that easy. As we know, there are tons of cars out here with different color paintings. But you won’t just walk straight to any car and drive it off. First, you need to sample out and weigh the car with other factors such as performance, fuel economy, and features. Then the ultimatum which is the color comes in.

We all are different and everyone has his/her personality. Car color choice is one way of showing the world what we are made up of. Here is what your car’s color says about you.




To some individuals, black is considered a dark color full of grim and generally associated with negative reputations. That is wrong! Black is a powerful color and reigns and stands out of all colors. Being a black car lover puts you in some exaggerated level of executive and luxury class. This can be related mostly to famous individuals like actors, musicians, and high-profile business people. Black is always a match with them. Another trait of black car owners is they are very independent individuals who don’t like their space being interfered with. They have control over themselves and those within. Style and sexiness are also other personalities with black lovers.


  1. Gold.


If you see Gold, success is what comes into your mind. It is a precious and expensive mineral in reality and therefore can only be acquired by the rich. Gold lovers are usually guys who have made it or are trying to be successful in life. With success being in your reach, all that surrounds you is nothing but quality and rich in class. You always radiate love and compassion to those within you and try to uplift them to successful levels. At the same time, you pull people close to you and treat them with warmth, and show positivity amongst them. You are an intelligent and sharp-minded person who is driven by the mentality of success.


  1. Silver.


Silver tells us that you are a busy person who is practical business-oriented and innovative. Similar to gold, silver symbolized prosperity and success. The slickness and stylish nature of silver make it associated with people who value style. On cars, silver kind of camouflages dirt. This shows that you are also on a busy schedule and have no time for minor barriers since you are success-oriented and only steer going forward.


  1. White.


You are a clear and pristine person who does not like to hide things but rather expose them. You also can stay calm and humble even in trying times such as conflicts. You are a peaceful person. White makes you live a simple and cool life with minimal to zero disturbance. This color also signifies that you are a clean person and love all that you own and what is around you look sparkling with no dirt. The braveness and more confidence speak out for themselves for those with white cars.


  1. Red.


Red comes out as being bold, dynamic, and energetic. This means that you are a go-getter who pushes it to the limit and gets what you want no matter what. The boldness makes you fearless and can confront absolutely anything without any worries. Energy is also another trait with red color lovers. Compassionate and love to those close to you are common too.




Colors are very powerful and artistic since they speak or portray what our inner personalities are made of. Your preference for any color simply brings out the real you to the world. In short, colors do resemble who we are. Traits are different with each color just like our fingerprints are. This makes us different and unique from each other.

Just like any other assets out here, cars get affected in one way or another by several factors. One of the commons factors affecting the well-being of a car is the weather. We can compare a car to a living thing in some way. Whereby, for a car to ‘’live long’’ and be in good form and shape for a long time, needs to be treated with care and protected all times from agents that might hinder its operation and functionality. Effects of weather change are usually felt in almost every aspect. We usually live in an always weather-changing environment that sometimes is unpredictable. 

Cold weather mostly comes in during the winter seasons. The snowing, icing, and freezing temperatures are usually experienced the most during wintertime. Cars get affected in different ways during such times. You need to brace and prepare earlier if you are heading into cold weather. You also need to have information on how you can take good care of your car in cold weather. This article will show you how.

 Heading into a cold season without an extended warranty is the very first mistake to make. An extended warranty comes in place after the factory warranty expires. As we all know, the factory warranty does not last long. Damages and breakdowns are very common in cold weather. Spending a lot on fixing your car is not what you wish for. However, with an extended warranty, you will have a smooth transition in and out of a cold season without issues. Check out A-Protect Warranty Corporation for more details.

Now let’s dig into how to maintain your car in cold weather.


1.Get a winter service before the cold season begins.


Cold weather is associated a lot with winter. The beginning of winter comes with freezing sub-zero temperatures which are usually harsh not only to us but to our cars too. With earlier preparations, you can get into the cold weather and have a perfect experience all along without your car jamming up or being problematic. Getting a winter service before the actual cold time begins will put you ahead of the pack. A service puts everything in good shape and form and ensures your car is in tip-top condition. Make sure you get it done by a professional from a reputable service center. Extended warranties offer service to the customers in selected service centers. Having an extended warranty is a plus.


  1. Do not ignore dashboard warning alerts.


In surveys conducted by research institutions, it was confirmed that a good percentage of drivers do not show concern for most of the dashboard warnings. There is a worryingly small number of guys whose dashboard does not even work. These warnings are very important since they alert the driver of any complications which can be difficult to notice earlier. The earlier the warning the better.


  1. Add an anti-freeze to your engine coolant.


A car’s engine is always running and by so doing generates heat over time. The heat needs to be cooled so that the engine can continue working in harmony. Too much heat may cause serious damages or even fires. An engine coolant which is a mix of water and antifreeze needs to be filled always. In cold weather, temperatures are can get below freezing point. An engine coolant lacking an anti-freeze is likely to freeze out hence exposing your engine to overheat. That’s risky to the engine’s life. 


  1. Check your car tires frequently.


Checking in your tire is a crucial activity that needs to be done frequently not only during the cold weather but in all weather conditions. In this case, during cold weather, tires need to be rightly inflated and with enough thread to move through icy or wet roads. In winter times, you need to replace your normal tires with winter specialised ones.


  1. Rust-proof or wax your car.


Rust is very dominant in cold weather. This is due to the high amount of moisture in the air giving room for a reaction to metallic parts that form rust. Rust if not protected against can be a huge threat to your car. You need to rustproof your car and wax it so as to protect that shiny and appealing look.


Cold weather to some might not look like a huge threat to the life and well-being of a car. This is in fact the time where your car gets exposed to a very rough and harsh condition. Things will definitely not go well for your car in the end. Freezing temperatures, ice, rains, and snow are very harmful to the car. You need to adhere to a strict maintenance habit at all times when the cold times kick in. An extended warranty at hand is also another weapon to combat the ravaging cold weather. You need one for your car and this is the right time to get it. Liaise with our customer care team through email at info@a-protectwarranty.com or call +1-866-660-6444 and talk to us.

Many people find it hard choosing which car, manual or automatic when acquiring one. Manual transmission cars require the driver to shift gears while operating it through a friction clutch. Automatic cars shift gears on their own. Due to a lot of engagement, many first-time car owners have opted for automatic transmission cars, unlike experienced drivers. First automatic cars are dated more than a century in Canada.

Automatic transmission cars use sensors that allow them to shift gears by use of internal oil pressure. Torque convertor handles gear shifting when the transmission is disconnected from the engine. These cars come with their strengths and weaknesses.




  1. Safety. 


Automatic cars are safer when you compare them to manual ones. Driving a manual car requires one to shift gears using one hand while steering with the other. In automatic cars, the gears are transmitted on their own so the driver steers using all their arms hence safety is guaranteed. For new or inexperienced drivers, it’s an added advantage as they maintain their focus. With power steering it’s easier for one to shift the wheel hence driving with one hand for inexperienced drivers may not be that safe.


  1. Convenient and easy to use.


 Automatic transmission cars are most easy to use than stick shift vehicles. The automatic transmission cars uses transmission fluid to control gear ratios. Hydraulic planetary transmission is most commonly used these days. Transmission fluid is kept under pressure by an oil pump that controls various clutches and bands. Once the gear is on the drive, the driver has less work as far as gears are concerned. This makes driving simpler and more relaxed.


  1. Power and torque. 

Automatic cars are more powerful than manual cars. Different gear make-up makes the car’s power evenly spread out over a greater area increasing the car’s power. Torque is a rotating force produced by the engine’s shaft. Automatic cars got a torque converter that increases the torque of the vehicle. Due to higher torque Acceleration, speed is boosted for automatic cars from both ignitions and while driving along. Automatics shift gears faster and more accurately hence no opportunities for mistiming making its acceleration speeds faster. With a torque converter, a car starts and stops without user intervention.

  1. Risk of stalling is reduced


For automatic cars, the risk of stalling while driving is highly minimized or even unlikely for one doesn’t need to involve the clutch which changes transmission in the engine. Stalling in fast-moving traffic can cause problems to the car and other motorists too. 


Cons of automatic transmission car.


  1. High repair cost. 


Acquiring automatic cars is more expensive as compared to manual cars due to reliability on more complex transmissions. They rely more on torque conversion and gear switching which are more expensive. More people spend more on transmission maintenance and fuel consumption. Many of these car owners incur high costs of buying and repairing with a lower selling cost as they are mostly preferred.


  1. Not enjoyable.


 Driving an automatic car is not enjoyable as compared to manual cars. Manual cars provide an interactive session with the drivers as they have to engage clutch and gears which is far more fun and lively. For automatic cars, the driver may fall asleep at times when they are not more engaged. Hence some people find these cars less interesting to drive.


  1. Transmission faltering. 

While engaging this car, the driver experiences a slight delay before the car starts moving. This hesitation might be caused by a badly functioning pressure pump or inadequate gas pressure in the transmission.


  1. Licensing problem


The problem of being licensed on automatic cars might restrict you from driving a manual transmitted one. One may be required to go back to school and get a manual license before coming to drive a manual car.




All in all, with the changing world most people and countries are embracing automatic cars more so the electric ones. Learning to drive in an automatic car can let you concentrate mostly on the positioning and road signs thus much safer. Automatic cars have made driving so easy that many people like to own them.

On the contrary, the automatic transmission is not efficient in terms of fuel consumption, price of purchase, and maintenance and security.

Generally, an automatic transmission car’s pros surpass its cons which makes the car better to drive than the manual one. A-Protect warranty Corporation offers extended warranties for your car.
