How to Buy a New Car

Man Giving Thumbs Up Holding Keys In Car

Are you in search of a brand-new luxury vehicle for your Covina travels? Buying a new car is an exciting experience, but if you’ve had negative experiences with dealerships in the past, you may be feeling more stressed than excited. Many shoppers just don’t know where to start the process — and that’s okay! The team at Mercedes-Benz of West Covina is here to give you some tips on how to buy a new car, so you can drive home in the Mercedes-Benz A-Class, GLC, or AMG® of your dreams.

How to Know When to Buy a New Car

For many people, buying a new car is one of the second most important financial decisions — next to purchasing a home. However, it’s important to know when it’s time to take that step. Here are a few signs it’s time to consider buying a new car:

  • You’re paying for expensive repairs fairly frequently. Cars need maintenance every so often, but you shouldn’t be paying more for auto service in a year than you would for a new ride.
  • You feel unsafe behind the wheel. This is straightforward; if you feel unsafe driving your car due to ongoing mechanical issues, it’s time to say goodbye.
  • There just isn’t enough space. Maybe you purchased your car when you were single, but now that you’ve settled down, you need more room for your family. Consider upgrading to a compact GLA SUV or the midsize GLE.

Tips for Finding the Right Car for You

So, you’ve decided that now is the right time to buy a new vehicle. Great! What are your next steps? The most logical next step is to set a car-buying budget and follow it. The experts at our finance center are happy to help you work out a budget and payment plan that make sense for your lifestyle. Next, you’ll want to take the following steps:

  1. Narrow down your options. Consider your driving habits, then make a list of the features you’ll need, such as cargo space measurements, desired technologies and safety features, and more.
  2. Choose your top three models. Then, break them down even further based on costs, safety ratings, overall reliability, and other factors. You’ll also want to test drive one or all three of your choices to make a decision.
  3. Select your preferred model. When you make your final decision, get price quotes from local dealerships and research what other shoppers in the La Puenta area have paid.
  4. Shop smart. Consider any possible weekend sales or holidays that might come with specials, such as Labor Day Weekend or Black Friday.

After you’ve completed those steps, our West Covina dealership can help get you behind the wheel of the model you want at a price you’ll appreciate!
