What to ask when buying a new car

Not sure what questions you should ask when making your new car purchase? Don’t fret; our car dealer in West Burlington has compiled a list of questions that’ll be sure to help benefit your car-buying process!

1. Do you have a vehicle that suits my needs?

Since every person lives a different lifestyle and has varying needs that should be met, it’s important to express what exactly you’re looking for in a vehicle.

2. Does it have enough space?

Whether you have a large family, often host road trips, or need additional cargo space for your workload, you should make sure your car contains the space you desire.

3. Does it have upgraded technology features?

If you’re a tech-savvy person who enjoys staying connected on each drive, you’ll want to invest in a car that’s well-equipped with the latest technology features.

5. What’s the gas mileage?

When budgeting for your vehicle, you should take the gas mileage into consideration so you know how much you’ll be spending each time you take a trip to the gas station. If you don’t want a gas guzzler, you should express that you’re interested in fuel-efficient car.

6. How long is the warranty and what does it cover?

After making a new car investment, you don’t want to worry about costly fees for repairs down the line. Knowing what the warranty covers will help you avoid any unwanted surprises in the future when your vehicle requires repairs. You should also find out the common repairs for that specific vehicle, so can prepare yourself for upcoming costs when it comes time to service your car.

7. What's my out-the-door price?

Besides paying for the car itself, it’s extremely likely that you will have to pay for other fees that come with it. Find out what the total cost is during the negotiation, that way there are no surprises when it comes time to pay.

8. Can you hold the car while I make a decision?

Sometimes, deciding on your dream car can be difficult. If you need extra time to think over your new car investment, you should ask if the dealership can put the car on hold, and for how long.
