How to Buy a New Car

Man Giving Thumbs Up Holding Keys In Car

Have you been to the auto garage more often than you’ve gone to get your hair cut? Does your mechanic know you by your first name? It may be time to get a new car. But how do you know when to buy a new car? What’s the best way to go about it? We know a thing or two about buying new cars at Jim Glover Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram FIAT. We’ve helped thousands of Tulsa customers just like yourself navigate the world of car shopping. So, we’ve put together this handy guide on how to buy a new car.

How to Buy a New Car the Right Way

Lots of folks tend to fly blind when they start shopping for a new car. We like our Broken Arrow customers to make informed decisions and come away feeling they’ve made a great deal. So here are our tips on how to buy a new car:

  • Figure out what your needs are. What do you need from a car? Do you need a commuter to get back and forth to work? Do you have a large family? Will you need to carry or tow anything? All of those things go into deciding what car is right for you.
  • Figure out how much you can spend. How big of a down payment can you afford? How much can you afford to pay monthly? The larger the down payment, the lower the monthly payments and length of the loan. Our payment calculator can help you with this.
  • Do your homework. Once you’ve figured out what you need out of a car and what your budget is, check the dealership’s inventory online and pick out at least a few vehicles that fit your needs. Find out what the MSRP is for each of those vehicles.
  • Apply for financing. You can make the process go quicker and arrive at the dealership already knowing how much car you can afford by applying for financing online. It might be a good idea to check your credit report beforehand, and fix anything that is negatively impacting your credit score.
  • Take a test drive and sign the paperwork. We make the whole process pretty simple at Jim Glover Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram FIAT in Owasso.
