When you're planning to buy a new car, it's essential to know how much it's going to cost you over the long run. While most people think about monthly payments when they think of the cost of a car, the total cost of owning it can involve and cost a lot more.
Here are a few of the things that can factor into how much your car is actually costing you:
Maintenance costs: You should factor in the gradual cost of maintenance when buying a new car. Over time you will need to change the brakes, tires, and transmission fluids. You'll need to pay for things like inspections and oil changes, as well.
Fuel costs: When planning to purchase a car, you should make sure to think about how much it will cost to fill up its fuel tank.
Vehicle depreciation: A new car loses almost one-third of its original value in the first year. Buying a used car can result in a lower monthly payment, since your vehicle will have already gone through the depreciation process.
By considering these factors, you can establish a more in-depth picture of what your car will cost you. If you think it might be time for a different vehicle, get in touch with Webb Auto Outlet in Palos Hills, IL. Our inventory of used cars is full of great options for drivers of every kind.
The Physics of Horsepower
When you think of the word “horsepower” you probably think of cars. The more horsepower the better, but what really is horsepower anyway and why is it important? Horsepower is the amount of work your car can do in one second.
So, if your car has lots of horsepower it means it can do more work thus making it travel distances quicker. In physics, horsepower is the metric unit of power and it is equal to the work done divided by time (P=W/t). When your car engine produces a force of thrust and your car starts moving, your car is doing work. Now, the faster your car does that work, the more horsepower it generates.
Some vehicles, like trucks, use the added horsepower for moving massive things instead of using for it speed.
Come visit us at Webb Auto Outlet in Palos Hills, IL to learn more about horsepower and our selection of cars. Our sales agents are eager to assist you.

Take Advantage of Our Used Car Opportunities
Cars come in all shapes, sizes, and price ranges. They also come new and used. While many opt to buy their cars brand new, there's nothing wrong with buying used. Buying a used car, in fact, can be a distinct opportunity to save money, stretch your budget further, and get a great car, all at the same time.
When you are looking for a vehicle, the total cost of ownership must be looked at. You're generally going to be paying for more than just the price of your car. There's insurance, regular repairs, fuel, and more.
There's also the cost of depreciation to consider. A brand-new car will lose a large chunk of its value quickly. If you buy new, your first years of ownership are basically spent paying full price for a car that isn't worth as much anymore. When you buy used, you're getting a car that's already gone through depreciation. You're paying (less) for what it's worth.
If you want a reliable vehicle at a great price, a used car is a great option. Webb Auto Outlet has a great selection of used cars, with a wide range of brands in stock. Come visit our location in Palos Hills, IL and speak with our sales agents. We can help you find the perfect used car for your life and its needs.
