February 20th, 2018 by

The prospect of buying a car can be a daunting one, but we at Glenbrook Dodge Chrysler Jeep can help. We’ve compiled a list of ways to help better prepare yourself.

Do Some Research
Even if you have a specific car in mind, it is a good idea to see what else is out there. There are new features and amenities every year that could change your mind. Create a list of cars you’re interested in. Having more than one at the end of this process is actually encouraged.

Explore Financing Options
If knowing what you want is half the battle, knowing how to get it is the other. You have quite a few options when it comes to paying for a car, though at its most basic it will come down to a decision between financing and leasing. For more information, visit our finance center.

Test Drives
As great a tool as internet research has become, you can only get so much from a screen. Now that you are seriously into the process of getting a new car, it’s time to pay us a visit and get behind the wheel for yourself. Be sure to test drive all the cars on your list. You don’t want to second guess yourself later.

Find Out The Exact Price
By this point, you should have zeroed in on exactly which car you want. It’s time to work out the price. There is a lot that goes into the price of a car, which is why there is often wiggle room. Be on the lookout for deals and rebates. After all, the fees and extras and savings are calculated, you should know exactly what you’ll need to pay.
