First Time Car Buyers

So, you’re ready to buy your first car? Congratulations! Before you get ready to sign on the dotted line and drive off to Phoenix, however, there are a few things you should know. Use our first time car buyer’s tips to get more from the dealer’s special offers and enjoy a smoother transaction.

  • Set a Realistic Budget. The cost of the car is only part of the equation. Don’t forget to add the cost of fuel, maintenance, and insurance as well to find out what you can really afford.
  • Decide on the Right Vehicle Ahead of Time. There are so many cool new vehicles available that it’s easy to get carried away. Decide what you need from your car and don’t buy more or less than you need.
  • Do Your Research. Study up on the vehicles that meet your needs, decide on a down payment that fits your budget, and find out how much your new prize should cost you.
  • Apply for Financing. Most dealers allow you to apply for financing online, so you’ll know how much credit you qualify for before you step foot on the lot.

By following a few basic tips, you’ll be able to get behind the wheel of your first new car with fewer surprises and more reasons to head into Tucson to celebrate.
