3 Signs that it’s time to buy a new car

December 1st, 2021 by

Think you’re in the market for a new car, but at the same time, you’re really not sure? We at Patrick Hyundai understand this ever-present conundrum. Buying a car can be a daunting task, but at Jaguar of Naperville we aim to make the process as simple, transparent and, most importantly, stress-free. For this month’s blog we’ve compiled a list of a few things to make note of that may indicate you’re in the market for a new ride.


It’s understood that things are going to wear and break down eventually over the life cycle of your vehicle. However, at a certain point, the ratio of good days to bad days will eventually have a negative effect on your life, but also your bank account. Patrick Hyundai notes that, as a general rule, you don’t want to experience more than two breakdowns a year. We classify those as being incidents that leave you unable to drive your care and require costly repairs.


Another thing to consider is when you feel like the safety of your vehicle is being compromised. Old vehicles eventually become unreliable and, in turn, unsafe. This can cause a major driving hazard for you and for others on the road. If you feel any sort of uneasiness while driving then it’s time to start shopping for a new car.

Life changes

To put it simply, life happens. We at Patrick Hyundai understand that life changes are normal and unavoidable. Sometimes you move to a different area which requires a new car because of weather, or sometimes your family grows which requires you to buy a vehicle with a little bit more space on the inside. At Patrick Hyundai we believe that you should have a vehicle that is compatible with your lifestyle.

No matter what the circumstances are, shopping for a new vehicle can be an exciting experience. But, sometimes it’s hard to know when it’s time to hit the open market. We at Patrick Hyundai believe that with our dedicated team, and our Patrick Promises, we are the perfect place for you to get into something new.
