It’s ironic. At a time when a lot of people want to buy a new car but they can’t afford it.
Anyone who has been waiting and looking forward to receiving an unprecedented preferential price for their current engine to reduce change costs.
It really is a win-win situation. But for some, it won’t be fun to pick up a shiny new engine for a while.
New cars are really scarce and it will stay that way through the second half of the year by the looks of things. So what are you going to do?
There’s not much you can do except, in most cases, order a new car for the July registration and expect it. In some cases, there is every risk of having to wait until the end of the year. Or even longer.
But if you decide that you need something new before that is available now, make sure you identify the pros and cons of not buying the car you originally wanted.
Spending all that money the second option could harm you in the long run.
