Tips for First Time Buyers

February 25, 2010 / 

We realize the importance of preparedness when purchasing or leasing your first new vehicle. We’re here to assist you with making your first car purchase a seamless, satisfying and enjoyable experience. These tips will help you in the process.

Did You Know? A great resource about what cars to consider are friends, family and colleagues. Ask them what they like best about their vehicle. Or, visit our main website for more information.

  • Talk to family and friends about the vehicles they like and their driving experiences.
  • Research the make and models you are interested in – whether new or certified used.
  • Know what your credit score is and the type of financing available. This is key in narrowing your search and also helps you be prepared should you need a co-signer on the loan.
  • Test drive the models you are most interested in, to make sure one is right for you.
  • Ask about our specials, warranties and any possible manufacturer incentives on the vehicles.  This may assist in your decision-making process.
  • Know what vehicle upgrades you want.
  • You must obtain adequate insurance coverage in order to buy/lease a vehicle. Get an estimated quote on car insurance. Click here for ways to save on insurance.
