Buying a new car is for many people the second most expensive purchase they’ll make so it’s important to get it right. Whilst the journey to owning a new car can be exciting, it can also be overwhelming, from choosing the right make, model and dealer to obtaining the necessary finance.
We’ve taken a deep dive into buying new cars and compiled some practical advice on what you need to know:
There are so many makes, models and options available in the new car market that it’s best to think about what you want from your new car before you start looking. How many people and what type of goods will you carry? What features are must-haves, for example reversing cameras and satellite navigation? What are the running costs and insurance? Once you know what you want, it’s time to find a reputable dealer.
- Choosing the Right Dealer
There are several things to look for in a dealer when you’re searching for the best new cars for sale in Port Macquarie. The best dealers will offer a wide range of makes and models and will have a good-sized showroom with a variety of vehicles on display. The sales staff will have a wealth of knowledge, able to provide valuable assistance, ensuring the car you pick meets your needs. Make sure they offer good after-sales care and service.
- Vehicle Inspections and Test-Drives
The most critical part of buying a new car is the visual inspection and test drive. Take the car you’re thinking of buying on the longest test drive you can as a short journey won’t tell you everything you need to know. Compile a list of things to check during the inspection and test drive, such as driving feel and comfort, practicality, noise levels, turning circle, and luggage capacity. Carry out reverse and parking manoeuvres and sit in all seats to check the room and comfort.
