When to Buy a New Car

To start, it’s essential to know whether or not it’s the right time to buy a new car. Wondering when that is? Take a look below at our tips:

  1. You find yourself constantly paying for expensive repairs that impact both your time and wallet. If you’re paying more for repairs in a year than a new car, it may be time to trade-in your vehicle.
  2. You’ve felt unsafe driving your car. If you’ve ever questioned your car’s safety, it’s time to get a new one.
  3. Were you a bachelor/bachelorette when you first bought your car, but now you’re married with a baby on the way? It may be time to think about upgrading to a small SUV with advanced safety features that keep you and your precious cargo protected while on the roads.
  4. Your car keeps failing emissions tests. Getting everything fixed and up to snuff can be costly, which makes opting for a newer model the better option.

Finding Your Ideal New Car

Now that you know when to buy a new car, you probably need help finding and buying a new car. To start, create a budget that you’re going to stick to. If you’re having trouble, our finance center can help create a budget and payment plan that’s affordable for you. Learn what comes next in our step-by-step guide below:

  1. Narrow your search based on your driving habits, cargo space requirements, and desired technology and safety features. From there, start searching for models that meet your driving needs.
  2. Choose your top three models, then research their safety ratings, reliability, lifespan, etc. Then, schedule a test drive to get behind the driver’s seat of all three models to see how they drive on Bensalem, PA streets.
  3. Once you’ve chosen the vehicle that’s right for you, check out our vehicle specials and lease options to ensure you’re getting the best deal possible.
  4. Take into consideration any big upcoming sale weekends or holidays that might come with really good deals, like Black Friday or Presidents Day.

How to Afford a New Car

You’ve chosen your vehicle and now it’s time to look at your budget. How much can you afford each month in car payments? Buying a new car is exciting, but it’s also important that the cost of the vehicle is included with your other debts. Keep these things in mind while we’re helping with buying a new car:

  • New Car Sales Tax: This non-negotiable tax is typically added to your car loan amount.
  • Interest Rate: The interest rate also impacts your monthly payments. If your rate is lower, then your monthly payment will be lower. Remember, you will only receive a lower interest rate if you qualify, and not all drivers can qualify based on their credit score.
  • Trade-in Value: If you have a vehicle, it’s good to trade that in to put more money towards your new vehicle. We’ll purchase the car from you and apply that amount to your new car, but if you still owe on your current vehicle, we can add the remaining cost onto the new vehicle price. Our value your trade tool provides an instant appraisal of your current vehicle.

Our finance department is standing by to help determine what vehicle fits your budget. You can also get pre-approved for financing and get an estimate on your monthly car payments right at home.
