How to Buy a New Car in 5 Simple Steps

  1. Get Pre-Approved for Financing. By getting pre-approved for financing, you’ll get a better understanding of your budget and how much you can afford to spend on a new vehicle when you begin shopping. Getting this out of the way first will help you buy a new car, SUV or pickup truck that fits your budget.
  2. Research New Vehicles to Narrow Down Your List. Once you’ve been pre-approved for financing, you’ll know how much you can spend on a new vehicle. With this information, you can then begin to research vehicles and narrow down your list. One of the best ways to figure out which vehicle has what you’re looking for is to perform side-by-side comparisons of your favourite two vehicles to see which one is the right choice for you.
  3. Test Drive the Vehicle You Want to Buy. Once you’ve picked out the vehicle you want to buy, booking a test drive in it is the next step. This will help ensure that it is the right vehicle for you and that you feel comfortable behind the wheel of it.
  4. Get Quotes for Your Vehicle Trade-In. If you have a vehicle you want to trade in, be sure to research the value of your trade-in before getting quotes from a dealership as this will help you know the true value of it. Trading in a vehicle will help lower the price of the vehicle you want to buy.
  5. Close the Deal. The last step when buying a new vehicle is to close the deal by visiting the dealership.
