New Car Buying Basics
If you’re buying a new car, or thinking of buying a new car, there are a few things that are helpful to know to make sure you get the best deal, and don’t get stuck with a purchase you’ll regret.
When shopping for a new car, the choices can be overwhelming. But buying a new car doesn't have to be a chore, it should be fun.
Not only that, but we can also help you pick the right deal and the right dealer. Our expert advice can also help with other aspects of your new car purchase, such as insurance and maintenance.
VISITING THE DEALER
Before heading to the dealer, it's useful to know what you're getting into. Do your research and don't forget to take a look at our expert reviews. You'll be better prepared when you get to the showroom.
There's more to research than just picking out the right car. Prospective buyers need to research the cost of insurance, how much they can afford (both overall and when it comes to loan payments), and whether it makes more sense to buy or lease. Picking out a car involves more than just choosing the model and color.
CHOOSING YOUR NEEDS AND WANTS
Some people know exactly what kind of car they want or need. In some cases, buyers know the exact make and model. But many buyers aren't sure. So before you begin your shopping, take stock of what you need in a new car. Do you need a lot of space, or fuel efficiency, or something that can do some towing? If you have a family, do you need five seats, or a crossover with seven seats?
Don't forget your wants. Buying a car can be an emotional purchase, and sometimes a purchase is made more for fun than for practical reasons. Of course, in many cases, a purchase is both emotional and practical, so it pays to take some time to think about what you both need and want when researching a new car purchase.
GOING FOR A SPIN
Don't forget to take a test drive. We realize that many people regard this step in the new car buying process as a formality, but it's an important one. Before making three to five years' worth of car payments, you'll want to know how well it drives. Just because you like the way a car looks or because it's priced right doesn't mean it’s the right one for you.
