Buying a new car involves the art of haggling. You should never pay the price that is offered unless of course they say it’s non-negotiable. In that case, you might consider shopping somewhere else. Before you can get to haggling for a price, you’ll want to put some of these tips into action for buying your new car:
Narrow Down Your List
You might be extremely happy with the car you’re currently driving. It might just be several years old. However, when you go to test-drive the latest model, you might find that a lot has changed and it just doesn’t have the same feel. That means you need to shop around. The biggest mistake you could make is to wander onto a dealership without any idea of what you’re looking for. You should put together your list after spending some time online. Everything you need to know about a car can be found on sites like Edmunds or Kelly Blue Book. Best of all, that research is free and up to date. After all your research you might still find yourself circling back to the model you’re driving but at least you took the time to get informed about the possibilities.
Figure Out a Budget
You probably know what you can afford to pay each month but that’s not the only cost you have to factor in. You’ll be getting a new insurance policy and because the car is new, your rates will probably go up a little. You also have to factor in things like an extended warranty and gap insurance. Those costs are usually tacked onto the monthly fee. It means your $250 a month payment hops up to $300.
Every car comes with a long list of standard features but there is a limit. The dealership will try to get you to consider extras. Some of those extras are for your riding comfort like heated seats. Others pertain to exterior trim packages that really don’t impact the driving experience. The GPS you’re paying a thousand dollars for is the same one on your Smartphone. Every extra you add on is going to make that final price tick up.
As you drive off the lot in your new car, you should feel confident you made a great deal. You’ll want to keep that new car safe and that means parking in your home’s garage. Will there be room?
