In this week’s essay I will be writing about a car make and model that is practical for me. Because I am under driving age and pretty uneducated when it comes to cars this opinion may change in the future. What I will be getting into in particular in this essay is: the monthly car loan payment I would pay if I paid a 25% down payment, gas costs, repair costs, and other costs.
The car make and model that I chose was the 2012 Nissan Rogue( an SUV), that costs about 13,000 dollars and has about 80,000 kilometers on it. The reason why I chose this type of vehicle is because I live in the mountains and small cars are not that safe to drive on the roads of my area.
After choosing the vehicle that was suitable for me I calculated the monthly car loan payment if I paid a 25% down payment and got a four year loan, and a three percent interest rate(that interest rate is probably wrong). The sum I got from that calculation was a 175 dollar monthly payment if I do get a car loan.
My yearly gas cost will probably be much different when I do buy a car, this is just the amount I will be spending on gas if I do buy a car now which I am too young to do. In my area the gas price per liter is about 1.39 dollars, so approximately I will be spending if I drive about 12,000 miles per year my gas cost will be about 1,450 dollars, and if I get good insurance my cost will be about 3282. Combining these costs with the average repair costs(the average repair cost is about $528 dollars for the car I chose), my total cost will be approximately 3,810 dollars.
This is my essay on the car make and model that is practical for me, which is the 2012 Nissan Rogue.
This essay is a little late, I should of wrote it days ago but finding a suitable car was not easy.
