How to Buy a New Car

Auto shopping in Stamford can be an exciting time, but if you don’t know how to buy a new car, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Luckily, Garavel CJDR is here to help. Our car buying tips help you make a great decision, so you can drive home to Greenwich with a smile!

When to Buy a New Car

Learning when to buy a car can be difficult, so take a look at our checklist to see if anything sounds familiar:

  • Are you sick of costly repairs? There comes a point when the cost of constant repairs is more than the cost of a new vehicle.
  • Do you feel unsafe while driving your car? If you are worried about your safety on the Bridgeport roads, it’s time to retire your vehicle.
  • Do you have different driving needs now than you did when you first bought your car? Maybe you need to swap out your compact sedan for a family-friendly SUV, or maybe you want a greener vehicle with better fuel economy for commutes.
  • Does your vehicle fail emissions tests? A newer model might be a wiser investment than trying to get your current car up to standard.

How to Buy a Car that Suits You

While many drivers love to dive into the new vehicle inventory, a little research can save you some time if you want to shop more efficiently. We recommend thinking about your budget first, and think about whether you want to lease or finance your next purchase. From there, start thinking about what you want out of your new vehicle:

  • Research: Think about how you drive, how much space you need, what features you want, and what price range you can afford. Then start making a big list of any cars that fit the criteria.
  • Test Drive: Pick your top three cars from the list and start researching more in-depth. What are the safety ratings and reliability scores? What do the reviews say? Take your top three for a spin at Garavel CJDR and see what you think.
  • Financing: Now that you’ve found your winner, be sure to investigate the prices of similar models on the market. This will help you during the financing process.
