Other factors that you need to look into and prioritize are, the fuel efficiency of the car, the type of service network, after sales servicing offered, the safety features of the car, the seating capacity needed depending on the size of the family, and of course if you need a luxury range car or a medium budget sized car.
Choosing and Buying a New car is an important decision that requires careful and meticulous planning. You are faced with lot of options governed by your financial status and the value for money that you would get in buying the new car. Just thinking about how best to acquire a car of your dreams can be a daunting task.
Most cars are phenomenal in their overall functioning and promise that the long term investment is worthwhile. Your income profile, your affordability aspects and your preference all are equally important. Everyone wants to be the proud owner of a car and the last thing you would want is to be disappointed with your investment.
Different cars come with different packages, so it is very important you check on the service and mileage of the cars along with the network and safety that is needed. Always gather as many expert reviews and comments on the vehicle that you choose to buy and do a comparative study of the vehicles in the market. Technical specifications such as mileage, engine power and other features are equally important. You must carefully analyse the vehicle and make sure that you get all the characteristics that you are looking for, inspect the vehicle both from the interior and exterior for any kind of blemishes or damage.
Before buying your car, you need to find one that would suit your lifestyle and to look for cars in the segment that you can afford, whether it is a sports utility vehicle (SUV) or a compact car, or a sedan. You need to identify the car of your choice. Go in for the right deal, choose cars whose manufacturers offer you great incentives and rebates, be very careful to note any hidden liabilities by the smart marketing executives and match it against an affordable budget.
Stellantis is cutting 150 employees from the work force at its assembly plant in Belvidere, Ill., where the Jeep Cherokee is produced.
The layoffs are part of efforts to rebalance staffing levels and realign production “to meet global demand” for the Jeep Cherokee, according to the company.
Stellantis is the corporate parent created by the merger of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and France’s PSA Group.
“Following a review of its operations, 150 people will be indefinitely laid off, starting Feb. 20, 2021,” a Stellantis spokeswoman said in a statement. “The company will make every effort to place indefinitely laid-off hourly employees in open full-time positions as they become available based on seniority.”
Jeep Cherokee production at Belvidere was idled from Feb. 8 to 15 because of the global microchip shortage.
U.S. sales of the Cherokee slipped 10 percent in the fourth quarter to 37,936 vehicles. Stellantis’ total U.S. sales for the quarter declined 8 percent while industrywide deliveries fell 2.4 percent.
Stellantis said most of the fourth-quarter decline was a result of a sharp drop in fleet orders, especially those from rental car companies dealing with a pandemic-induced dip in business travel.
The Detroit Free Press reported on the layoffs on Tuesday.
