The DOs and DON’Ts of Buying a Car

The DOs and DON’Ts of Buying a Car


Hello and welcome to my channel my name is
Sarah Thurman and today I want to talk to you about the do’s and don’t’s of buying a
car. Have you ever looked back on your life and realized that probably purchasing that
car was a bad idea? I have, I’ve had four. That’s right, four. What am I doing with my
life. So today I’m gonna give you four helpful do’s and don’t’s, so here we go. Do Listen to your parents, they probably know
what they’re talking about. I mean, they probably have about 20+ years on you so they’ve probably
bought a few cars in their time. Don’t
Buy a car you think is cute. Don’t do it. Just because it’s cute and gets really good
gas mileage does not mean that it’s gonna function in a month.
Do Know how to change the tires. It’s really
helpful that you don’t have to call your parents or AAA, you like, pop a tire or something.
Don’t Run over sharp objects causing you to have
to change your tire three times in a month. Three! That’s like $400!
Do Clean your car regularly. You’d be surprised
at how great you feel when you get into your car and it’s clean. And it’s like ‘Yes, I
know what I’m doing today, I know where I’m going, I’ve got my life together! Yes!’
Don’t Forget about things, like pomegranates that
roll under the seats and then start to mold and then you forget about them until you have
to go pick something up that’s underneath the seat and then you touch it with your hand
and you’re just like AAAHHHH! Do
Have someone look at the car before you buy it. It’s okay to take the car to a mechanic
and be like ‘Yo, is this a good car to buy? I don’t know, because I don’t know anything
about cars.’ Don’t
Buy a car without getting it looked at. And then you find out that not only is the clutch
broken, but the electricals don’t work, and it’s made in Mexico, and nothing works and
then it’s just – ugly sobbing – So, I’m 20 years old right now. And I got
my license at the age of 16, and my very first car was Mercury Mystique, it was nice but
the trunk leaked. And I live in the Pacific Northwest and it rains all the freaking time,
and so, everything in my trunk would get soaking wet. So I couldn’t put anything in the trunk
and it was really annoying and I was like no I can’t, I can’t do it anymore, let’s get
rid of it. Cause then we had a van, and it was a Kia, and the Kia was great, like it
was perfect, and then it stopped starting. But only when I tried to start it. Whenever
anybody else tried to start it it worked fine. So then I upgraded to a Volkswagen Beetle,
a 2005 VW Beetle. I hated that car. I liked it when I drove it off the lot, but then we
had 30 day warrenty on the car and on day 31 the clutch broke, that was like $1200. And then the lights kept going out. I was on a first name basis with the people at O’Reilly’s
Auto Shop. Because they knew, they knew, when I walked in they were like ‘Op, you’ve got
the fun lights!’ The car that I have now is a Honda Fit, and
I love it and it’s perfect but it kinda sucks that I had to go through three cars to finally
get to the Honda. So much money, just, gone. Forever. Don’t forget to like the video if

I’ll see you next week.
