Searching for that perfect new car for your Round Rock commutes? This is an exciting time, but it may not feel that way to you! Whether you’re frustrated with poor dealership experiences or just don’t know where to begin, many car shoppers find themselves soured by the experience when they finally drive off the lot. Fortunately, Covert Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram is here for you with tips on how and when to buy a new car. We want to send you home to Westlake with a smile on your face!

When to Buy a New Car

It’s a hefty financial decision, so the best place to start is simply knowing whether it’s time to buy a new car. Here’s how you’ll know it’s time to take that leap:

  1. You constantly find yourself paying for expensive repairs, impacting both your wallet and your time. At some point, you’ll be paying more for repairs in a year than you would for a new car.
  2. You’ve felt unsafe driving your car. Need we say more? The last thing you want is to get in an accident, so if you’ve ever questioned your car’s safety, it’s time to say farewell.
  3. Perhaps you were a bachelor/bachelorette when you first bought your car, but now you find yourself married with a baby on the way! You may want to consider upgrading to a small SUV with advanced safety features.
  4. Is your car failing emissions tests? Getting it up to snuff can be costly, and opting for a newer model may save you money in the long run.

How to Find Your Ideal New Car

You’ve decided the time is right to buy a new car, but where to begin? A good place to start is to set a budget and stick to it. If you have trouble, our finance center is happy to help you find a budget and payment plan that works. We can even walk you through your coverage options like gap insurance and liability insurance for a confident commute. Below is a step-by-step guide on what comes next:

  1. Narrow your search. Consider your driving habits, cargo space requirements, and desired technology and safety features, then start searching for models that meet your needs.
  2. Pick your top three models, then research your top choices’ safety ratings, reliability, lifespan, etc. If you have the time, take a test drive in each model to learn how they handle on Leander streets.
  3. When you’ve decided on a final choice, do a local search to see your dealership options and request price quotes, and be sure to research what other shoppers have paid.

Once you’ve completed the above process, it’s time to head to your dealership of choice to make it official!
