Tips & Advice

Car Keys

Envision what you are looking for in your first car. Are you looking for something luxurious and sporty to zip around town in or would something more practical like an SUV be more up your alley? Consider the following:

  • How many passengers do you typically have?
  • Do you think you will need room for more than five people?

Take a note of that, and move on to how you will be using your vehicle:

  • Do you need seats that lay flat for more cargo space?
  • Do you plan to take your vehicle off-roading, or are you looking for a daily commuter?

Consider these questions when thinking about which type of vehicle best suits your lifestyle. Do not forget to reflect on the safety features that are important to you and come standard on the vehicle you might have in mind. Once you have a general idea of the car's qualities you're looking for, ponder what you would be willing to spend more to have, such as leather upholstery or an upgraded sound system.

Establish A Budget

Now that you have an idea of what you are looking for in your first car, it is time to determine your budget. Take time to calculate your monthly expenses without a car payment. Once you have an estimate, estimate how much you can afford to pay towards a monthly car payment. Be sure to include the expenses of owning a vehicle, such as routine maintenance, insurance, and fuel cost.

Take a Test Drive

The best way to determine if a vehicle is the right choice for you is to schedule a test drive. Seeing a vehicle in person is completely different than shopping online. We recommend taking at least thirty minutes during your test drive to experience how the vehicle drives and the interior features fit with what you were looking for. Are you comfortable while driving and have a good view? When you are ready to schedule your test drive, reach out to our talented team at Byers Imports.
