When you head out to buy a new car, it’s important to make sure you know what you want ahead of time. If price or safety are the most important element, make sure to tell your salesperson about that right up front. If luxury interior is what you’re looking for, you’ll be able to find it, but it’s going to cost you.

Taking the step from a base or midline vehicle package up to the premium packages is an expensive endeavor. Premium packages are stuffed with so many bells and whistles, there’s a good chance you’ll never use them all. And when you go to trade it in after a few years, you won’t see much added value for your trade in. Highly optioned vehicles see a higher rate of depreciation.

Financing a vehicle with all of the upgrades also means you’ll be paying interest on your fancy additions for the life of the loan. Why not buy a base model vehicle and add the most important upgrades after your purchase?
