New Car Buying Tips

Learn how to buy a new car for the best price with our top new car buying tips. Here’s how to get started:

  • Create a budget (and stick to it!): First things first, you will want to set a budget that is feasible for you and determine how you want to pay for the vehicle. You can pay for the car in cash, but most drivers opt to take out a loan or lease the vehicle. It is a good idea to be aware of your credit score, as it will determine what kind of interest rate you are offered. 
  • Make a list of must-have amenities: Make a list of the features that you actually need in addition to the add-ons you would like to have. Once you have your criteria, the fun begins! You can start searching for vehicles that have the amenities on your wishlist. 
  • Consider ownership costs and reliability: While many drivers know to research a car’s reliability ratings, cost of ownership is an often overlooked factor that should not be ignored. While a car may be affordable initially, insurance costs, maintenance, and depreciation could make it less of a great deal in the long run. 
  • Find the car of your choice and take it for a spin: We always recommend test driving a vehicle before signing on the dotted line. Not only do you want to see how it handles, it is also important to make sure that it has enough space and that controls and features are placed intuitively for you. 
  • Agree on a price: Wondering how to buy a new car for the best price? It can be beneficial to do your research. See what other people in your area are paying for a similar model and compare prices at local dealerships. 
  • See how much your trade-in is worth: Do you plan on trading in your current vehicle? See how much it is worth, and then you can put its value toward your next purchase. 
  • Seal the deal: All that is left is to sign the necessary paperwork and get the keys in your hand!
