Is now the right time to buy a vehicle?
Driving a shiny new car around town definitely has its appeal. But, is now the right time to purchase a new vehicle? Consider these tips that may help you:
- Are you fiscally fit? Before doing anything, consider your current situation. Have you been laid off or lost income recently? Or maybe you’re a little worried it could happen? Now may not be the best time for such a big purchase. Don’t worry... things will improve.
- Set a budget – especially if you don’t currently have a car payment. The more realistic you are the better. Ask yourself – will the new car have hidden or surprise expenses like increased gas or maintenance expenses? Maybe your insurance will go up? We can help get you an accurate quote.
- Price compare. You’ve got the time so find the best deals. Check out this calculator to see what the best deal is for you.
- Start shopping. Head to your dealership showroom or do some browsing online. Don't forget to stick to that budget you created.
