My hubby and me thinking of getting a car when we get our first baby. But budget rather tight - both for first installemtn and the monthly instalments.

Heard that fren that it was cheaper to get a new car than service his current one. But was advised that buying a second-hand car is a better option for first-time car owners on budget. How come so?

2nd hand costs less

Well for the simple reason that second hand costs less, unless it's a lemon whose maintenance and servicing costs outwiegh the lower monthly instalments. So key is to send it for inspection or get a trained mechanic to look it over before buying :;):
