What color car gets most tickets?

Urban legend says that red is the color that gets pulled over more often, but red actually came in second place in this study. The top color is white, with gray and silver coming in third and fourth place, respectively. It seems like flashy-colored cars don't get pulled over as often as we think.

Where do unsold cars go?

Car dealerships are franchises. That means they buy new cars from the manufacturer and sell them at a higher price to make a profit. Therefore, once the dealership buys those cars, they belong to them. They can't just send the unsold ones back to the manufacturer at the end of the year.

Is it better to lease or buy a car?

Monthly lease payments are generally less expensive than monthly car loan payments. However, with each loan payment, you can build up equity for the future when you decide to sell it or trade it in. Buying a vehicle and driving it for several years after you pay it off can be the cheapest way to own a car.

In case of diesel Ford,the engine 1.4 litre Durotorq is proven,has good service support and hence Ford vehicles with diesel engines especially Ford Figo have decent resale value.
