What should be preference on buying a car?

Other answer:

Anil Chandran:
The first requirement is that the model you choose suits your lifestyle. What do you need the car to do for you? Then you need to have a price range. Then you test drive cars to try and find faults. See the link for wise guidance.

I am the preference of buy car
CB:
The best car YOU can afford. After that whatever your preferences are ie your needs and wants (fuel mileage, space, optional equipment, traction options, power options etc).
Love big words:
Paying cash
PMack:
Focus on the things you need, not what you want. For example, if you don't need an SUV, don't get one, sedans are cheaper and more efficient.
