Choosing Your First Adult Car

There is no denying the value of a car. From a young age, you are told how great they are and how much independence they provide. You are even given racecars as toys, and while you probably won't become a racecar driver, you will want a nice vehicle at some point in life. You may be told to get a "starter car" – you know, either a cheap used car or a hand-me-down that was your dad's first, then your sister's, and now yours. However, once you have reached that age at which you can land a successful career and afford a nice car, you tend to set your expectations higher.

What should you look for in a brand new vehicle? Well, there are tons of options and, at times, they can seem overwhelming. Here are a few things to consider before purchasing your first "adult" car:

1: The Make and Model are Everything

You will want to select a car that reflects your own unique personality and needs, so your choice of make and model will be crucial. Here are some steps to follow:
  • Consider the type of car that you would want: Would you like a compact or sports car for city driving, a truck for hauling equipment, or an SUV for the family?
  • Once you have decided on a style of vehicle, you'll need to do some research on the different car companies. Find out which ones are considered consistently reliable, both in terms of performance and safety, and which ones provide good warranties. When you find a vehicle that combines all of these elements, you will be looking at the one for you!
  • Don't forget to set a budget at the beginning of your search process, so that you don't become attached to a car that isn't financially feasible.
2: The Wheels!

If you want your car to look good, one way to improve its appearance is to get some special wheels, and what better choice than American racing wheels? Investing in these wheels is a great way to ensure that your car drives well for years to come and that you get the look of that racecar that you always wanted. With these on your vehicle, you don't have to dream about racing – you can engage in it (legally, of course)!

3: The Color of Your Car

The color may seem insignificant, but your choice is a big indicator of your personality and a great way to express yourself. While Forbes still lists the common white, black, and silver as the top three colors, many dealers have been offering a variety or more unique shades in the past few years and they've been creeping up the ranks. Never be afraid to ask your dealership for something a little more unique like yellow, orange, or bright green if the model comes in it – even if it isn't on the lot.

When choosing your first new car, you'll want to consider the practical things, but don't forget about aesthetics! American Racing Wheels and bright car colors are a great way to make your car stand out!
