How to Buy a New Car

Have you decided it’s about time you upgraded your Lakeland ride? Buying a new or used car is an exciting milestone in life, but you might be feeling more stressed than excited right now. Whether negative dealership experiences of the past are plaguing you or you find yourself running in circles unsure of where to begin, many shoppers find themselves feeling not quite as happy as they should be by the time they drive off the lot. At Chevrolet Center Inc, we aim to challenge that notion. Join us as we share some of our best tips for how and when to buy a new car, below!

When to Buy a New Car

Buying a new vehicle is a serious financial decision, so it’s important to be absolutely sure now is the right time to do so. Here’s how you’ll know you’re ready:

  1. Your current vehicle is frequently being brought in for costly repairs. There will come a point where you’re paying more for repairs in one year than you would if you bought a new car.
  2. You’ve questioned the safety of your car. Need we say more? The worst-case scenario here is that you wind up in an accident, so if you’ve ever felt as though your car is no longer safe to drive, it’s high time you traded in; it’s also worth noting that you can trade in your used car even if you’re currently still financing it.
  3. A lot can change in just a few years! You may have been a single, solo driver when you bought your current car, but now you’re married with kids! If this is the case, now may be the time to consider upgrading to a roomy SUV like the Chevy Equinox.
  4. When it’s time for an emissions test, can you count on your car to fail every time? Reconditioning your car to meet the standards can get expensive, and getting into a newer model might be more cost-effective in the big picture.

How to Find the Perfect Car for Your Needs

If you’ve decided that now is the right time to purchase a new vehicle, where do you begin to find a model that suits your needs? An ideal starting point is to consider your finances: Set a realistic budget, and stick to it. Need assistance? Our friendly finance team is happy to assist! The steps listed below outline what comes next:

  1. Narrow your search. Take into consideration your driving habits, interior space requirements, and what type of technology and safety features you would appreciate having, then start researching vehicles that fit the bill.
  2. Make a “top 3” list. Then, do more thorough research on your top choices: Explore their safety ratings, estimated lifespan, reliability, etc. If you have time to spare, it’s also smart to test drive each model to see how you feel behind the wheel in Haines City.
  3. Once you’ve made a final selection, research your local dealership options to find out who offers the best prices – just be sure to research what other shoppers have paid, too, while you’re at it.

After going through these steps, all that’s left to do is head to your chosen dealership and start the process of making it official!
