After our house, a vehicle is a second-biggest asset that many of us will ever own, so it's important that you make the right choices when it comes to the purchase.

Here are the top five things to look out

#1 Make sure you're planning for the future - A car is something you're likely to have for a period of time, so if you're thinking you might have a family in the next few years. Don't buy that sports car with room for barely two.

#2 Know what you can afford - The answer to this question will set you on the right path between either new or used vehicles, and it will also help guide you on what brands models and features are within your buying options.

#3 If you're buying privately request an inspection of the vehicle from RACQ - All your friendly mechanic, a quick check over the vehicle from someone who knows, what they're looking for and subsequent thumbs up can prevent unexpected issues from suddenly arising number.

#4 Comprehensive insurance is a must - Don't just rely on compulsory third party fire and theft your vehicle, could pick up bumps and bruises from anything so make sure it's protected from anything life throws at.

#5 Plan your finance - Obviously, when purchasing a vehicle you need the funds. Now there are more options and greater flexibility than ever before to get those funds in your hands. It is a good idea to apply for a pre-approved loan.
