Ask if your intended mechanic is experienced with the make and model of your car. Although cars are generally similar in some ways, there are big differences between models. If you’re not sure, it may be worth it to pay extra at the dealer.

Keep a spare tire and a jack with you all the time. Many new cars have these. You never want to be without them, as you could end up having to pay for an expensive tow. It’s cheaper and easier to do it by yourself.

Don’t let a mechanic insist that an engine flush is part of a normal maintenance visit. Flushing your engine is generally unnecessary unless you’ve subjected it to great abuse, (like a long time between oil changes) and it’s simply too expensive to purchase unless your car really needs it.

There are no auto parts that will work forever, so don’t believe any claims to the contrary. This is generally just a way to get consumers to buy those parts. For instance, some cars have “lifetime” transmission fluid. Although this type of fluid doesn’t require changing very often, it should still be changed about every 80,000 miles. Therefore, the lifetime claim is false.

Put all of your important auto repair receipts in your car – plastic accordion files work well for this. File them by work done, or timeline order. Whichever method you utilize, maintaining a record of the auto repairs you have will significantly help your mechanic whenever your vehicle needs more repairs. In addition, it will help you know if a certain repair did not live up to your expectations. This is particularly valuable when it is time to sell your car.

Sometimes you need to keep a car in storage for a significant amount of time. Put it on stands and fill the gas tank. Do not set the parking brake, and be sure that your car’s storage environment is dry and not prone dampness that encourages rust formation.

Ask to have your old parts given back to you. This will allow you to know whether or not they really repaired what they said they did. This should be a necessary part of ensuring quality repairs. It is easy to tell whether or not a new exhaust has been installed.

All quotes should have itemized costs, including parts and labor. You can then easily compare fees between different mechanics and make sure the estimates cover the same items.

Hero Honda Karizma and Bajaj Pulsar 220 are two of the best sport bikes available in the Indian market. But which bike is the better one? Let’s find out.

The Hero Karizma has a redesigned front and rear LED lamps, new paint and sticker jobs. The bike now gets a sporty split seat arrangement. When compared to the Karizma, the Bajaj Pulsar 220’s design looks a bit dated. Both the bikes are different in their own way. While the Karizma has the widest wheel base at 1350 mm, the Pulsar is powered by the most advanced technology.

The Pulsar 220 is one of the best performer bikes. The fuel injection technology of the Pulsar 220 helps the oil cooled motor to perform well. The bigger and stronger forks of the Pulsar bike help to push harder. The design of the Pulsar gives a sporty appeal. The Pulsar 220 has the biggest disk brakes.

The Karizma’s 223 cc Honda engine does not have fuel injection. The engine responds effortlessly and the suspension takes up the bumps and pot holes on the roads confidently.

The fuel injection, rear disc, oil cooler, clip-on handlebars, projector lamps, LED tail lights and fat tubeless tyres makes the Pulsar 220 technologically superior to the Karizma.

The Karizma gets from the 0 to 60 kmph in 4.5 seconds while the Pulsar gets from the 0 to 60 kmph in 4.0 seconds, half a second quicker. The maximum power is 17.8 bhp @ 8500 rpm at a maximum torque of 18.35 Nm @ 7000 rpm for the Karizma while the Pulsar has a maximum power of 21 bhp @ 8500 rpm at a maximum torque of 19 Nm  @ 7000 rpm.

Top speed is 120.7 kmph for the Karizma while the Pulsar 220 has a maximum speed of 127 kmph. In the corners, the Pulsar is harder to get turned in but once you do it is more stable than the ZMR at intermediate speeds. The Pulsar bike has a softer suspension set up as well.

Karizma has a shorter wheel base and thus has improved handling but the P 220 is noticeably taller and the steering feel is heavier.  Karizma is 9 kg heavier than the bike from Pulsar.

The success of the Karizma over the Pulsar 220 now remains over the pricing. The Karizma is expensive, coming at a price tag of Rs. 78,400 to Rs. 97,600. While the Pulsar 220 costs in the range of Rs. 82,023. Check out  Hero Karizma on road price in New Delhi.

If you are going to be shopping, do not just give your money out to anyone. That’s not all that is involved! The following information will help you get a better handle on what it is all about. Heed the advice, and you will be driving away in your next dream car in no time.

If you don’t negotiate with a car dealership, you may as well throw your money in the trash. It is never smart to pay sticker price on a car. Dealerships inflate prices to give room for negotiations and to give you the impression you are getting a good deal even though they only give you a small discount.

You want to make sure you’ve secured an automobile loan before going into the dealership. You might get a better deal from them. If you already have an approved loan, it will move much quicker.

The Internet is a goldmine of promotions and special deals. Looking online can help you save thousands of dollars. The right vehicle may be a short drive away, or your local dealership may be able to bring it in on your behalf. If the dealership is close by, try going to save more money.

Before you get a used car somewhere, look it over by using a third-party mechanic. If the dealer won’t let you do this, look elsewhere. An adequate mechanic can make an impartial opinion on any problems in the vehicle like signs of flood water submersion or car wreckage.

Ask your family and friends about what they know about cars. Are they happy with the car choices they made? Do they have regrets about the decisions they made? What have they heard about other models? When you’re in the market for a car, this is a good way to get some preliminary information that you can start with.

Look at a vehicle’s fuel efficiency and how it will work with your budget when buying a car. As an example, a V-8 that has the towing package might at first seem like a wise choice. But think about how often you truly require the additional horsepower provided by a V-8 engine and how frequently you will use the towing feature.

Call the bank to see if you can get the financing you need for the vehicle you are interested in. This can provide you with important peace of mind. Often times a dealership will get you a better offer than your bank, however it’s always good to have a backup plan.

Don’t roll up to the dealership in an expensive car. Doing so causes the dealer to think you have a lot of money.

Car shop online. You’ll find almost any and every vehicle online. Find out all you are able to about the cars you are interested in before you go and look at them. Researching online can tell you everything from features to miles per gallon to resell values.

Car salesmen have quotas to meet. Use this fact to your advantage by going to a car dealership at the end of the month. Salesmen who have not met their quota are going to want to make one more sale. This will give you more flexibility when it comes to negotiating a price.

Test a car by renting the same make and model. This will help you get a good idea of what it is like to drive. Take your family on a road trip, and you’ll see if the car is a fit for you. This is an ideal way to determine if you’re comfortable with a vehicle before buying one.

Look into auto shows to help you decide what type of car you’d like. You can compare so many different makes and models all at once. It will also allow you to speak to lots of people who know a great deal about cars. After leaving a car show, you may even have decided upon the right car for you.

Don’t give your SSN out too early. Often dealers will ask for that early on and run a quick credit check. You have to realize that the process of checking your credit can ultimately damage your score, so be careful in this respect. Wait until you’re sure that a deal can happen before giving out the social security number you have.

It might not be possible for you to get everything that you want in a car. Your wishlist of options and features might not match your budget, or the vehicles currently available just don’t match your desires.
