Top 5 New Car Buying Tips & Tricks
At Erin Dodge, we're committed to making easy work of your next purchase, and in more ways than one. In addition to our star-studded new inventory, we also aim to provide our customers in the Toronto, Ontario area with all the tips they'll need for a stress-free purchase process. Find out how you can buy a new car with minimal delay and hassle thanks to the following tips, and feel free to peruse our lineup of new cars for sale at Erin Dodge before paying us a visit.
Put Your Daily Needs First
Buying a new car is a big undertaking, especially if you're a first-time buyer, which is why we suggest simplifying your search according to what you'll need out of your new vehicle. Simply put, a recent college graduate will have far different automotive needs than a parent with three kids who spends their day chauffeuring them around. Luckily, Erin Dodge has something for everyone, whether a peppy sedan or a roomy family vehicle.
Don't Commit Before Going for a Test Drive
Test drives are invaluable because they give you a sample of what your ownership experience will look and feel like. Whatever your model of choice, remember to request a test drive with one of our sales staff and get a feel for your next vehicle before committing to a purchase.
Stick to Your Budget
Living beyond your means is a dangerous proposition, and that goes for your new automotive purchase as well. Before visiting Erin Dodge, remember to work out your budget and determine what you can afford, as venturing outside your budget can lead to major financial troubles down the line. Luckily, our finance centre can help you arrange a credit plan that will accommodate your budget and avoid breaking your bank, and we'll gladly work your trade-in into your deal to lighten the financial load.
Know the Terms of Your Agreement
Once you've ironed out the terms of your agreement, we recommend giving it a good once-over and reviewing the terms. Buying a new car is a big leap for many, and it never hurts to know the terms of your deal inside and out before signing on the dotted line.
Timing is Everything
Whatever your price range, there's no time like the fall to make your next purchase. Anytime between September and December is best, as this is when dealerships like ours will offer incentives on their fleet before their incoming models join the lot for the new year.
