3 Top Tips for Buying a Brand New Car

3 Top Tips for Buying a Brand New Car

Buying a new car can be both an exhilarating and nerve-wracking experience at the same time. For those that are unfamiliar with the process there are some pitfalls that need to be avoided. When looking at cars for sale Mandurah drivers need to be aware that not all car dealerships are totally honest in order to make a sale. However, by following these three simple tips you can make the process of buying a new car easier and less stressful.

  1. Establish That the Car is New

Just by looking it can sometimes be hard to identify a brand new car from a cursory exterior inspection. Many demo car or used cars are brought up to showroom standards in a quality car dealership. The majority of the time the car will be clearly marked as new, but it doesn’t hurt to ask. You may actually find that some of the demo cars are virtually new with just a few test miles on the clock. If you’re tempted by a demo vehicle let the sales representative know as you could make significant savings over buying a brand new vehicle.

  1. How Much Choice is Available

Many people like to customise their cars a little to stand out from the crowd and it’s nice to know how much choice there is in this regard. This could be as simple as which colours can be chosen to other extras such as upgraded seats and infotainment gadgets. It’s always a good idea to make sure exactly which options are available and how much if anything they are going to cost. When looking at cars for sale Mandurah buyers may be able to negotiate for some extras depending on which models and specification they want.

  1. Get a Written Quote

Visit the dealership in person or online and be very specific about which vehicle you would like to buy. As stated above, this includes any extras that you would like which are non standard. Then get a final written quote and confirm with the dealership that it is correct. Take some time to shop around and see if there are any better deals to be had. This may be difficult if you’re looking at a specific make and model that is only provided by a single dealership. However, if you’re more interested in a non specific make of car, perhaps a different make and model will offer more value. When looking at cars for sale WA drivers will have very individual requirements that don’t always come down to price alone. Always take care to look at the value of extras such as servicing as they add significant value that is not reflected in the price of the vehicle.
