Example Of A Topic To Talk About

Effects of Foreign Cars on the Economy

When some people voice their plan to buy a foreign car, this triggers a whole new argument that has been in existence since Japanese and Chinese car makers infiltrated the European and American auto industry. Comparisons between local and imported car models reveal various issues that touch on car parts, dealer relations and insurance. This may lead people to consider the fact that cheaper imports may not necessarily be better. 

Information About The Impact Of Car Importation On The Economy

Economic Impact

Buying locally manufactured car models has a positive impact on the economy. This is because local car manufacturers hire more people than Chinese or Japanese carmakers and use more local parts in their cars. 

Global Positioning

It does not make sense to pledge allegiance to imported cars when there are no significant differences between locally made models and imported ones. 

The Reputation Factor

It is a mistake to assume that all imported car models are created the same. Many imported brands have declined in reputation because of various problems with their new brands including oil leakage and problems with break and gas pedals. 

Insurance and Maintenance

People who commit to foreign models may also face severe shock when they pay for other issues that go beyond the sticker price. Imported models tend to have higher insurance and maintenance costs than local models. This is true especially for those who live in remote areas and do not have access to a variety of car parts. 

Depreciation Value Issues

Though locally manufactured car models have their advantages, maintaining their value can be challenging given the fact that they tend to depreciate faster than imported models. However, domestic car models will cost less to buy due to added incentives.

For many people, buying a car is considered a significant investment. New cars cost more or less the equivalent of an average worker’s yearly income. Financing and lease options make the process of acquiring a car a bit simpler. Many people view cars as savings goals and useful assets especially when used for business, then it is a tax-deductible expense. When going out to buy a car, consider the initial cost of purchase as well as fuel and maintenance costs.
