You’ve already found the best pre-owned vehicle dealership in the area, and we’re ready to take care of your car-buying needs. But first, we need you to ask yourself these three questions so you can decide what you need and what you can afford. Buying a car is an exciting experience, but it’s important to be fully prepared so you can be satisfied with your decisions for years to come.
1. What’s my budget?
Even though this question is the most obvious, it’s also the most important. You need to know what you can afford in order to start searching so you can find vehicles in your price range. Although it would be most ideal to pay for your new vehicle out-of-pocket, we know that’s not the most practical option for most car buyers. For the majority of the time, you will need to figure out a finance plan. We suggest you consider the following when deciding which vehicle is right for your budget:
- Monthly payments
- Down payment
- Cost of fuel/maintenance/warranties/insurance
2. What are my transportation needs?
We know the newest sports car may seem like a fun and exciting choice, but it’s important to ask yourself exactly what you’re buying the new car for. Are you a city driver who needs a practical, compact car for easy parking and heavy traffic maneuvering? Or are you more of a rural traveler who’s looking for something to tow all of your cargo? Luckily here at Certified Autoplex, we have something to offer for all types of drivers. We think it’s important, to be honest with yourself and know what you’ll be using the vehicle for the most, not what you might use it for once in a while. If you’re thinking about needing extra cargo space for the times you move every few years, that may not be as important as having a plethora of safety features that will protect you day in and day out.

3. Which vehicle do I enjoy driving the most?
Here at Certified Autoplex, we offer tons of research information regarding all of the most recent and up-to-date models we carry. Even though we offer endless information about the various models, we think it’s important to come in and test drive the ones you think will be best for you. You’ll never really know how the car drives or how it feels to sit in the driver’s seat until you try it for yourself. Bring along a friend for a second opinion and so you can sit in the passenger seat as well!
