The salesman sat down with us and patiently explained how what we bought ten years ago compared to what we were buying today. The car had more ‘extras’ – it included a good quality sound system, it had iPhone and Android phone integration. Sat-Nav was standard, and the overall quality was improved – it was far better made.
Importantly, the safety features on the car were in a different league – and now industry standard. Airbags everywhere, ESP – electronic stability control, auto dipping headlights, auto wipers, and braking assist were amongst the new features. Plus, a car alarm and remote security monitoring.
It is, simply put, a better car to drive – and of course, being a new car, it comes with a 3-year warranty and inclusive service for 3 years too!
So, having reflected on this I can see that I am getting a good deal.
