How to Buy a New Car
Learning how to buy a new car might not seem like something you need to do, until you actually have to do it. Things can get a little overwhelming, especially if this is your first time. After all, you’ll need to think about everything from trim levels to warranty options.
Luckily enough, the right guidance can see you drive home in a new Buick
or new GMC
that matches your own unique needs down to the ground. That’s why we’ve put together this guide.
When to Buy a New Car
For some drivers, the first step in learning how to buy a car is knowing when to let go of the old one. Here are just a few signs it’s time to move on:
- Frequent Repairs: If keeping your car running is taking a toll on your wallet, it’s probably better to get a brand-new model. It’ll be more reliable and come with a manufacturer warranty.
- Safety Concerns: Notice your current vehicle just isn’t responding as it used to? Time to move on.
- Poor Emissions: Older models generally produce more emissions and burn more fuel. Moving to a new one means enjoying the latest efficiency engineering.
- Life Changes: Your current car could be in good shape, but maybe you have a larger family and need more passenger space, or have recently moved to the city and need something smaller?
How to Find the Right Car
Now you’re ready to move on, here are a few steps to follow:
- Determine your monthly budget, including everything like gas and insurance costs.
- Narrow your search by focusing on a certain segment and picking out a few favorites.
- Research online using popular automotive review sites until you’ve zeroed in on two or three frontrunners.
- Head to a few dealerships to take test drives and determine your ideal vehicle.
- Research local prices and check out nearby lease and financing specials.
