OTTAWA (CP) If you're buying a new car, remember there are interest, deprecia- tion, insurance, repair and op- erating costs to consider, as well as the price tag on the vehicle', says the consumer, af- fairs department.

"Besides using a more ex- pensive gasoline and using more of it, these cars are more expensive to purchase, as the cost of the device is passed on to the Before purchasing any ve- hicle, the buyer is advised to scrutinize the warranty to verify whether it is from the manufacturer or the retailer. Make sure you understand all the terms right down to the fine print, the department says Decide on the amount of money you want to spend on a car and what size and type will best suit your needs. "It is very difficult to com- pare prices from dealership to dealership unless you can identify the model of the car, what is optional and what is not. Some dealers order cars with more options than oth- ers "Remember that add-ons add up. Options on a car in- crease the cost, and what are options on one car might be standard equipment on an- other." In used cars, options are usually included in the pur- chase price. Although price is often an incentive, ask your- self how the price compares with the age of the car, the consumer affairs department advises. If you own a child's car seat, take it with you to the dealer. "Don't take anyone's word that it will fit. Seeing is be- lieving." Before you sign any pur- chase agreement, the depart- ment says, make sure you un- derstand it. Have any verbal agreements written into the document and signed by an of- ficial of the dealership as well as the salesman. "There are so many vari- ables in buying a car it is only possible to lay out general guidelines The best rule of thumb is buyer beware and at every step, protect yourself."

When she returned from hospital in late September, of- ficials said she would not have any public engagements in the foreseeable future. Sources said she asked to accompany her husband on his Oct 20-25 visit to Europe.
