1. Do Your Research
Why do you need a car? Need something more spacious for a growing family? Maybe you want the vehicle you’ve always dreamed about. Is it time to buckle down and get a practical, long-lasting vehicle? There are plenty of online resources to help you navigate the car buying process and answer these questions.
Looks are always important, but don’t count out the technical features. Compare fuel economy, performance, safety features, and of course the extra touches of comfort. Remember to check for standard and available features as well. Getting started with a solid foundation will get you off on the right foot.
2. Do Identify ‘Must Haves’
So you’ve done your research. What are the components that without a doubt, have to be included? One of the benefits of buying new is availability. Your perfect vehicle is out there. You just have to be willing to find it. But in order to find it, you need to hunker down and find out where you draw the line. Whether you need heated seats, leather interior or a specific shade of teal, identify these facets early and focus your search.
3. Do Stick to a Budget
While you’re researching and identifying must haves, take into account your budget. Westgate offers great financing terms and new vehicle incentives on a regular basis. Be realistic with yourself and contact our finance department for help. You can get into the car you want, without breaking the bank. Look at the whole picture and see if financing orleasing is a better option for you!
4. Do Appraise Your Vehicle
Just because you think your current car is a hunk of junk, doesn’t mean there isn’t value left! Bring your vehicle into the dealership to get it appraised. Our team can make an offer on your vehicle that can be used towards your next vehicle purchase.
5. Do Ask Questions
Buying a car is a huge purchase and responsibility. If there’s something you’re unsure of, ASK! The friendly team at Westgate Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram is always ready toanswer any questions you may have. We work to provide you with as much information as possible!
