Some Tips for Buying a New Car



Recommended Posts

Feb 27, 2018, 04:53 pm

1. Choosing the right car.

Always research first so you can buy the car that best suits your needs and your budget.

2. Protect yourself.

Shop around as many dealers as possible. It is risky to buy from an unlicensed dealer or a private seller. They are unregulated and there is little legal protection in the event of a problem. 

3. Check the car. 

Walk around the car. Check for scratches, rust, missing pieces, etc. Look inside the car as well and make sure that everything is working properly.

4. Test drive.

Don't do more than the most perfunctory test drive, be that for a new or used car. While driving the car, pay attention to things like how the steering feels in your hands, how the vehicle feels as it's turning and how the brakes respond. Does it make strange noises? And things of that nature. Make a note of anything that you notice.

5. Negotiate.

After you have found the right car, do not be afraid to negotiate the price.

6. Get an independent inspection.

Always have a used car inspected by a qualified mechanic before you buy it. Most importantly don't accept the car unless you are satisfied with its condition.

7. Check your contract.

Never sign an incomplete contract. Always read and be sure you understand it before signing. Also be sure it is the car you want, can afford and that it is in  a condition you will accept.
