A good investment doesn’t have to be about making money.

Yes, it’s true that you likely won’t sell your car for more than you originally paid. It’s technically possible to turn a profit, but the average car owner shouldn’t count on it. Still, a good vehicle can have a massive impact on your life. Here are six reasons why a car is a great life investment.

1: It makes your commute painless.

Think about all the hours you spend driving to work, or driving the kids to school. These trips consume hours of your week, and possibly even longer if you take the bus.

If you have to sit in traffic, it’ll be much more pleasurable in comfortable seats with your music coming out of stellar speakers.

2: The family won’t complain as much.

Tired of the kids asking “are we there yet!?” A nice car might be just what you need.

A car that’s fun to drive is fun to ride, and the whole family will notice. There’s no better way to make a 4 hour road trip feel like a walk in the park.

3: You can still make some money back on your vehicle.

Sure, you won’t make back all your money on a vehicle, but that doesn’t mean you won’t get a return. And if you’re smart about which car you buy, that return in the end could be much greater than you thought.

Whether you sell outright or trade it in, a great car with future-proof features is sure to payoff. Or, if you take proper care of it, a car can make a great hand-me-down for first-time drivers in your family. Either way, a car with longevity is well worth the investment.

4: You’ll be happier owning one.

Tired of feeling jealous of all the sleek looking new cars you see beside you on the road? Trust me, it happens to the best of us, and a new car is just the cure.

You don’t need an exotic sports car to scratch the automotive itch. After all, a reasonably priced modern car can arguably drive better than a Mustang from the 90s! When you’re happy with your car, the whole world will look just a little bit happier to you.

5: You’ll make years of memories in your car.

Modern cars are lasting longer than ever. The average American is holding on to their car for 6.5 years these days, which is a full 2 years more than it was back in 2006! To put that into perspective, imagine if you used the same pencil as a kid from 1st grade all the way to 7th grade.

You’re going to spend years with your car, so why not make it one you love? There’s no better way to make precious memories all the more sweeter.

6: A good car is your ticket to freedom.

A car is your ticket to do whatever, whenever.

Want to go on an adventure across the country? Or maybe you need to make an impromptu visit to family two states away? Heck, maybe you just want to pick up a pizza because you don’t want to cook. A great car opens up all these possibilities and more, and that’s something money can’t buy. Well, you do need money to buy a car, but that’s why I’m here to cut you a deal.
