Some potential priorities could be safety, style, size, gas mileage, low cost to own, look, comfort, low price, handling, reliability, comfort, power, room, trunk space, etc… 1.) Gas mileage would be important to me because I would not want buy a car with low gas mileage. 2.) Safety would be important because I would be at lesser risk of getting hurt. 3.) Reliability would also be a priority because I would not want my car to break down all the time. 4.) Look would be a priority because I would want a car to look nice and sleek. 5.) I would want a decent amount of room in my car, so it’s not too small and not too big. Step 2: Choose your Vehicle (10 Points) Build and price a new car.
