When to Buy a New Car

Buying a new car is a major financial decision, so the place to start is first determining whether it's the best time for you to do so. Below are a few smart reasons to invest in a new model:

  1. Recently, you've been putting a lot of money into expensive repairs, and you realize that soon you will be paying more for auto service than you would for a new car.
  2. You simply don't feel safe driving your car around Amherst. In this case, it may be time to upgrade your ride.
  3. You have different needs and desires for your vehicle. Maybe you started off with a sedan and now need the space of an SUV. Perhaps you're starting a new business and need a work truck. These, among others, are entirely valid reasons to buy a new car.

How to Find Your Ideal New Car

If you have determined that it is indeed a good time to buy a new car, then you may be wondering where to begin. First and foremost, we recommend setting a realistic budget and sticking to it. Our Finance Center can work with you to figure out a payment plan that works, whether that involves financing your new car or leasing it. Otherwise, here is some advice on picking out your new car:

  1. Take your driving habits, cargo space requirements, and desired in-car technology into consideration. Base your search off of these factors, in addition to your budget.
  2. Identify your top three models, and do some research on each of their safety ratings and reliability. You can also schedule test drives for each of them to get a sense of how they handle on Depew streets. Need some help? Compare the Ford Mustang vs. Honda Civic Type R, for example, if you are a performance enthusiast.
  3. Request price quotes from dealerships, making sure to research what other shoppers have paid for similar vehicles.
  4. Take note of any potential upcoming sales, such as those for Black Friday or Memorial Day. This may influence the exact time that you purchase your vehicle.
