Top 10 reasons to buy a luxury car
1. They look cool
It’s true, luxury cars are built for more than serviceability. They’re designed for beauty, speed, comfort, and performance. They’re sleeker, sexier, and faster than their nonluxury counterparts, and they’re made to be appreciated and admired.
2. Status & prestige
A luxury vehicle is the physical manifestation of all that hard work you’ve put in at the office, the smart investments you’ve made, and the culmination of that dream. It’s your way of saying to the world and to yourself, “Hey, I’ve arrived!”
3. The experience
A luxury car elevates driving to an art form. The quiet interior, the purr of the engine, the way the leather seats fit your body, and the feel of the wheel in your hands—these are the things you experience every time you drive a luxury car.
4. Safety is standard
Features like anti-lock brakes (ABS), side airbags, and stability and traction control that tend to be extras on other cars are often standard fare in luxury cars. You’ll also find adjustable pedals, telescoping steering wheels, side-curtain airbags, headrests, and tire pressure warning systems.
5. Better creature comforts
Where else are you going to find perks like heated (and cooled) leather seats, Google Maps search functions, lane departure warning systems, airbags for your knees, massaging and reclining seats, blind spot intervention systems, collision warning systems, cooled storage boxes, self-adjusted suspension, self-parking systems, etc.?
6. High performANCE
Better horsepower, bigger engines, more power, and they go from 0 to 60 in less time. Luxury cars also are designed to handle better.
7. Technology savvy
First class features all the way. Luxury automakers are always building the latest and greatest features: CD-changers, iPod connectivity, hands-free Bluetooth technology, DVD entertainment systems, navigation systems, and rear cameras and sensors.
8. Better Warranties
Standard warranties on nonluxury cars tend to be 3 years/36,000 miles. On luxury vehicles, they kick in an extra year and another 14,000 miles, so you’re getting a longer bumper-to-bumper warranty at 4 years/50,000 miles.
9. Special Treatment
Customer service is king and luxury car dealerships are not only equipped to quickly handle any hiccups in your own car, they’re fully prepared to go the extra mile to take care of you while your car is in the shop. Some even offer free maintenance packages and free loaner cars.
10. Peace of Mind
That old adage, "You get what you pay for," comes to mind when you consider the cost of that luxury vehicle. Sure, you’re paying more for it, but consider the peace of mind that comes with that price tag. You know you’re getting a good product: the best parts, service and manufacturing. Plus, even if something does go wrong, you can fall back on that extra-long warranty and the free loaner.
