Tips for Buying a Car the First Time

Tips for Buying a Car the First Time

Whether you’re a college graduate or newly divorced, buying your first car can be intimidating. You can take steps to make the process less so. Although you may feel like you’re in a hurry to get your car, this is when you should slow down and think about your needs before you go to a dealership. It may seem like a long process, but you’ll be glad you spent this time.


Consider your budget. This gets a little tricky. A how-much-car-can-I-afford calculator can help you come up with a good range. Ideally, you probably shouldn’t pay more than about 20 percent of your take home income on a car payment. While you’re calculating your budget, don’t forget to consider upkeep, insurance and gas for your vehicle. You don’t want to get in over your head with your first car.


Look at your transportation requirements. Now is not the time to focus on that sleek and sporty car or heavy-duty truck. Make a list of what’s important to you. You’ll be driving this vehicle every day, so it needs to fit your lifestyle. Rate the items on your list to prioritize them when you’re shopping.


When you come to our dealership to test drives some choices, discuss your needs with our sales professionals. We have years of experience, and we know what’s in our large inventory of used cars. You will have plenty of options to look at which will fit your needs and budget. Let us show you different vehicles. Take a test drive and enjoy the drive.

You never have another opportunity to buy your first car. Feel free to ask us questions or slow down with our explanations. When you’ve done your research, you’ll be more confident when you’re shopping. We’re here to help put you in the car you need to keep up with your busy lifestyle.
