5 Mistakes To Avoid When Buying A New Car

It is possible that the summer holidays, with their longer commutes than usual, have pushed you without remission into the abyss of reality: your old car is no longer enough. So perhaps you are considering buying a new car, a decision without a doubt of great importance and in which it is advisable to take into account some basic recommendations to avoid mistakes that we regret for a long time.

1. Rush the purchase

Except for urgent urgency, the purchase of something as expensive and important as a car should be carefully considered. You should never rush. You have to take the time to assess all the aspects that influence the decision and choose the right moment to do so, looking for opportunities that may be advantageous.

2. Make a mistake in the election

Sounds like a truism, but maybe not so much. The range of segments, bodies, engines, equipment and variants is such that it is not unreasonable that we can lose the horizon on what new car we really need. That is why it is essential to carry out the exercise of defining our requirements in detail, identifying the models that meet them and, from there, selecting the product that most satisfies us. In this case, one should not be carried away by the heart and yes by reason, including discarding the options that significantly exceed the expense that it is convenient for us to carry out.

3. Ask for a quote only

The prices offered by the manufacturers for a new car are always recommended, since each seller can set the one he deems appropriate for the same product. So, within that calm buying process that we are talking about, it is obligatory to ask for more than one budget to choose the most profitable for us. If there are several brand dealerships in or near our city, they can be visited; if this is not possible, requesting an offer online (on the seller’s website, by email or on other platforms) is an increasingly widespread and highly recommended practice.

4. Order more options than necessary

Just as we should never buy a new car that we cannot pay or maintain (owning a vehicle requires an expense much higher than the purchase itself, we must take it to the workshop, change its wheels or pay insurance, for example), we should not let ourselves be carried away for siren songs of wonderful accessories … that perhaps later we will use rather little. All the details are appreciable and can be useful at a certain moment, but in the same way they raise the price of the vehicle (and its insurance, accordingly), so it must be clear if we really need what we are buying more of.

5. Don’t test the car

It is very good to inform yourself on the pages of the brands, watch videos on YouTube, read press tests, ask friends … However, the final decision is exclusive to the buyer and only he must come to the certainty that this car is you need, the one that meets your expectations. And to have that conviction, the infallible test is to get behind the wheel, know in first person if what we have been told or promised is what we perceive. Fortunately, almost all dealerships already have test units of their most popular models; It does not have to be exactly our version or motorization so that we can get an idea of ​​whether we like the car and it works for us. Because that, ultimately, is what it is about.
