The decision to purchase a new vehicle, whether it is brand new or a used one and just new to you, is a big one, especially in today’s economy. The decision making process should begin before you ever set foot on a lot at any of the local car Dealers OKC has to offer.
In fact, deciding among the many of the car Dealers OKC has available to consumers can play a major role in your car buying experience. The most important thing to do is figure out what some of your needs are before you even set out to begin visiting your Dealers OKC choices. Once you have figured out what some of your basic requirements are, it should then be a fairly simple matter to find a dealer that can meet your needs.
- 1. Are you buying or leasing? This is a pretty big decision to make. You should come to this conclusion before you ever set foot on a lot and do not let a sales person convince you to change your mind. The rules here are pretty simple. Buy if you plan to keep one vehicle for a long period of time. Lease if you’re the type that likes to have something different every few years.
- 2. Determine your down payment and monthly budget. Knowing what your spending limits are is extremely important. If you have a sizable down payment you may be able to lower your monthly costs, potentially allowing you to get more car for your money. Decide what you can afford to spend on a monthly basis, keeping in mind that you will also be required to carry insurance and pay applicable state fees. Once you have set your budget, do not let anybody sway you from this decision.
- 3. Are you trading in your old vehicle? Trading in your old vehicle is often an acceptable form of a down payment if you don’t have cash available for this purpose, or can also be used in addition to your down payment. Know what the actual market value, or blue book value, of the vehicle to trade is beforehand though. You will most likely not get an offer for the full value of the vehicle but an honest local dealer such as Knippelmier Chevrolet will likely come as close as they can.
