The new year is just around the corner and many folks are thinking about starting it with a new vehicle. However, a vehicle is the second biggest purchase in most people’s lives, behind a home purchase. Before you dive in, here are a few tips that can make the process easier and save you money.
- Set your budget. It’s super easy to get distracted by new cars with all the bells and whistles, but you don’t want to buy one that puts a strain on your budget. As a rule, spend 25% or less of your monthly budget for all the vehicles in your household. This should include auto payments, insurance, fuel and maintenance.
- Decide whether you want to buy a new, certified preowned or preowned vehicle. Yes, a new vehicle is tempting, but you’ll get more bells and whistles buying a used car. With so many people leasing these days, there are a lot of high quality three-year-old vehicles for sale, and as a certified preowned vehicle, you also get warranty coverage. Leasing is also a great option and gives you more features for less money.
- Choose which vehicles you want to test drive before you go to the dealership. Visit our website at www.pinebeltsubaru.com and you can find a vast amount of information about every vehicle on our lot. Once you decide which vehicles you like, come out for a test drive.
- Research all available discounts. This is pretty easy to do. Just visit our website. There are often multiple specials available. Some auto makers offer discounts for students, military personnel and even specific credit union members. And at year’s end, there are a lot of specials offered, too.
