Motoring experts agree that these days, vehicles are made to last longer. However most people would rather get themselves a new car every three or four years. What's the point in getting a new car if your old car is still in good condition? You can save the money you could have spent buying a new car by using your old one for eight years then sell it off. You'd have saved enough money to buy a new car without touching your earnings, and you get some money off selling your old car. That, now, is killing two birds with one stone.
