How to Buy a New Car – Step by Step

It’s easy to be carried away by the excitement of buying a new car. But it’s important to do your research and plan ahead before making a purchase. Here are some steps we recommend that every driver follow when buying a new car:

How to Buy a New Car

  1. Determine your budget: Consider not just the price of the car, but also ongoing expenses like insurance, fuel, and maintenance. 
  2. Research potential models: Read reviews, compare safety ratings, and consider factors like fuel efficiency and reliability. And make sure to check our new vehicle specials.
  3. Test drive: Not all new cars handle the same. A good test drive will help you see if the vehicle offers you a comfortable driving experience.
  4. Negotiate the price: Don’t be afraid to haggle and try to get the best deal possible.
  5. Financing options: If you need financing to purchase the car, shop around for the best rates and terms. We work with multiple lenders to get you the best rates, so we can be your one-stop shop for car buying and financing.
  6. Finalize the purchase: Make sure to read and understand the sales contract before signing, and ask any questions you may have.

When to Buy a New Car

How do you know if it’s just the right time to buy a new car for your commute? Consider the following:

When To Buy a New Car

  • When your current car is no longer reliable: If your current car is constantly in the shop or has significant maintenance issues, it may be time to consider upgrading to a newer model.
  • When your current car no longer meets your needs: If your needs have changed (e.g. you now have a growing family and need a larger car), it may be time to look for a new vehicle that better meets your needs.
  • When you can get a good deal: If you’re able to find a great deal on a new car (e.g. during a clearance sale or when a new model is about to be released), it may be worth considering a purchase.
