Buy a car warranty
Cars are complicated which is why at any time, something could wear out, break or stop working – and it could cost you a pile of money to fix it. As a result, budgeting can be difficult. One way of evening out the cost is to invest in an aftermarket warranty, so you pay out a regular amount each month. In return, if something fails, you shouldn’t have to find the money to fix it. This isn’t a substitute for servicing though, and if your car is old or high mileage the premiums could be steep – but at least you’ll be able to budget more easily.
