Shopping for a new car for your Huntsville commutes can be both exciting and intimidating. Many car shoppers find themselves soured by the experience when they finally drive off the lot. CDJR of Albertville doesn’t want that to be your experience. That’s why we offer tips on how and when to buy a new car. We want to send you home to Gadsden satisfied with both your new car and the experience of purchasing it!

When to Buy a New Car

Simply knowing whether it’s time to buy a new car is one of the biggest parts of the process. Here’s how you’ll know it’s time to take that leap:

  1. You find yourself paying for expensive repairs, impacting both your wallet and your time. At some point, the expense becomes great enough to equal the cost of driving a new car.
  2. You’ve felt unsafe driving your car. If you’ve ever questioned your car’s safety, it’s time to say farewell. Literally driving a car until the wheels fall off is never a good idea.
  3. Similarly, if your older car is failing emission tests, getting it up to snuff can be costly. A newer model may save you money in the long run.
  4. Your driving needs have changed as the size of your family has increased or your nest has emptied. You may want to consider upgrading to a family-friendly Chrysler Pacifica or something fun like a Jeep Wrangler.

How to Find Your Ideal New Car

You’ve decided the time is right to buy a new car. Get started by setting a budget, then stick to it. Our finance center is happy to help you find a budget and payment plan that works. Here’s what comes next:

  1. Narrow your search by looking at your driving habits, cargo space requirements, and desired technology and safety features. Start searching for models that meet your needs.
  2. Pick your top three models, then research your top choices’ safety ratings, reliability, lifespan, etc. Take a test drive in each model to learn how they handle on Fort Payne streets.
  3. Do a local search to see your dealership options. Request price quotes and research what other shoppers have paid.
  4. Take into consideration any big upcoming sale weekends or holidays that might come with really good deals, like Black Friday or Presidents Day.

Once you’ve completed the above process, it’s time to head to your dealership of choice to make it official!
