Buying a new vehicle is always an exciting activity. But it can be stressful on the other hand. What kind of car do I need? , why do I need that kind of a car but not the other? Can I afford buying and maintaining such a vehicle? And insurance and fuel consumption and many other questions will come through ones head before he will actually chose the most suitable variant. I presuppose that the person that is going to buy a vehicle is already confident on what type of the car he wants (coach, van, pick up truck , sports car etc.) Don’t mention the type of gearbox and make, model, year of manufacturing. All those should be already figured out and make the starting point to pick the right variant. But unfortunately even that is sometimes not enough, some people still make a lot of mistakes buying a new car. You don’t want to miss any details before you sign the purchasing documents.
One of the most common mistakes is hurrying . The head should always be ahead of hands. I mean that thinking and collecting all the information should be on first place rather than emotions. Many people are overexcited about the fact of car purchase that they might buy the first one they see without thinking about the consequences. Always ask for test drive. Fell the vehicle. Does it matches your requirements? Will you be able to drive it in any possible conditions?
Another mistake is not thinking about the future . I don’t mean trying to predict the future like extrasensory but what I am trying to say that you need to know what difficulties you might have and will you be able to deal with them. Specially it goes to maintenance -some cars are more likely to give a headache than the others.
Get all the information you can about the dealership itself. That includes the prices they get the vehicles themselves, the tax and their reputation. Don’t deny yourself in pleasure of going to other dealerships.
Consult mechanic or somebody who already owns the kind of car, you put your eye on. Never be shy to ask everything you want to know from the dealer. His goal is to sell the car any possible way, your is not to waste your honestly earned money. That is why you should not have his words as instruction, you better have your own game plan.
Do not take the commercial too personal. The commercial only means that the company spends money on making their brand widespread but not that you are ought to buy the product.
Make sure you pay the right amount of money as the dealership may have slightly different opinion on that question . search enternet . Websites such as Kelley Blue Book and Nada Guides will be really helpful.
After all pay a maximum attention when signing all the documents including insurance. Remember that it is YOU that will be tearing all the hair on your head if anything goes wrong-not the dealer.
