(PRLEAP.COM) December 27, 2016 - Debt Consolidation USA shared in a recently published article some useful questions consumers need to ask themselves before heading out to buy a new car this season. The article titled "Tips In Buying A Car This Holiday Season" aims to help consumers reach a financially informed decision with their car purchase.

The article starts off by sharing that buying a car this holiday season seems to be on the list of things to buy for a lot of people. The appeal of having a new car as a reward for a year's hard work plus enticing payment plans makes it really tempting. However, consumers need to slow down and think about the purchase because it is a big amount that will eat up their budget.

One of the first questions people need to ask themselves is if they really need a new car. This is a matter of want and need and should be identified early on. If they want a car to compete with neighbors or to simply show off then they better think twice. If the purchase is a necessity for business or if the current one is really breaking down a lot then there is merit to the expense.

The article shares as well that consumers need to take a long hard look at their budget. They need to determine how much the monthly payments will be until they pay the car off. It is tempting to get a car thinking they have a lot during the holidays but they should remember that this will not always be the case.

It is also possible that adding an expense to the budget would mean that they have to either increase their income or give up something in their budget. It is important to weigh this very carefully because this might affect their long term plans.
