Life With a Luxury Car


Buying a luxury car is something that a lot of us aspire to do. Whether you’re a keen collector, a racing enthusiast or just someone that loves cars in general, one of your future goals is to probably own a luxury car that you’ve set your sights on. However, life with a luxury car isn’t all so glamorous and there are a lot of considerations to keep in mind before you take out a financing deal or drop ludicrous amounts of cash on something like a Nissan GT-R.

With luxury cars such as the 2017 Ford GT making headlines, it’s hard to get away from the allure and mystery of owning and driving a luxury car. But don’t worry. In this article, we’re going to be warning you of a couple things that you should keep in mind before you buy a luxury car. Keep in mind that this article isn’t trying to put you off, but more prepare you for the ups and downs of your new life with a luxury car.

Expensive servicing and maintenance

If you’ve just bought a brand new Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe, then don’t expect to take it down to your local garage when it breaks down and you need to replace a couple of parts. If you do, they’re going to treat it badly, they might damage the paintwork, and you’re going to be at risk of ending up with a terribly serviced car and forever hate typical garages.

Instead, you’re going to have to take it to an expensive (but worth every penny) Mercedes-Benz car servicing garage. These locations are few and far between unless you live in a major city, but they are worth the extra price due to their expertise with the car you own and their experience in dealing with luxury vehicles. They’ll handle your prized possession with care, they’ll give it the love it deserves, and they’ll fix it professionally.

Sating your need for speed

Unfortunately, no matter how fast your car can travel you’re not going to be able to use its maximum horsepower to your liking. Even if you live in a rural area with a lot of long stretches of road and lovely countryside views, you’re still bound by speed limits. In a city, it’s even worse because traffic will make you stop and start constantly and the owner of that dusty pickup truck next to you is going to laugh at you as you’re basically moving at the same speed he is.

What’s worse is that fuel efficiency is incredibly low as well. Most luxury cars won’t get over 40 MPG, making them terribly inefficient choices for the budget conscious driver. However, if you’re able to afford and invest in a luxury car, then savings probably aren’t on your mind.

It’s still worth the money

Even though you’ll be limited by speed and you’ll end up paying a lot of money for repairs, owning a luxury car is something that few people can achieve. It’s a status symbol that will have people turning their heads when you cruise down a busy street with a roaring engine. They’ll look at you, take pictures, and envy your vehicle.
