When to Buy a New Car

A common consideration is when to buy a new car. In general, that’s going to be dependent on your personal financial situation and the type of vehicle you purchase. Consider the following about your current vehicle to help determine if it’s time for a one:

  1. Maintenance: Are you constantly in the repair shop? You may be at the point where you’re spending more on repairs annually than on a new vehicle.
  2. Safety: Feeling safe in your vehicle is extremely important.If you don’t feel safe driving your current car, then you’ll need to seriously consider getting a new one sooner rather than later. You don’t want a scary accident to force you into a new car.
  3. Lifestyle Change: Do you have a new addition to the family? Since the sedan you have might not have enough space, you may want to think about getting a new SUV so everyone can be comfortable.

How to Find Your Ideal New Car

If you’ve decided that it’s time for a new vehicle, the next thing to figure out is how to buy a new car. We recommend looking at your finances and determining a maximum price point that you are comfortable with. Not sure how to do this? Our finance department will be happy to help you figure out the price range that will work best for you, and we offer great tools like our payment calculator. Below is a guide to narrow your search once you’ve set your budget:

  1. Make sure the vehicle you are considering is within your budget. Don’t forget to think about tax, tag, title and warranty expenses that come with a new vehicle.
  2. Narrow your search using filters. Think about your “must-haves” and “optional” features that you want in your vehicle. Shop for cars that meet your specific needs, whether your priority is cargo space, tech features, or efficiency.
  3. Pick your top three models, then research your top choices’ safety ratings, reliability, lifespan, etc. If you have the time, take a test drive in each model to learn how they handle on Morton, PA streets.
  4. When you’ve decided on a final choice, do a local search to see your dealership options and request price quotes, and be sure to research what other shoppers have paid.
  5. Take into consideration any big upcoming sale weekends or holidays that might come with really good deals, like Black Friday or Presidents Day.
