Questions to Ask When Buying a New Car

For most people, a new car is one of the largest single purchases they will ever make. If it’s been a long time since you last bought a new car, or if this is your first time, you may be wondering how you should approach the process. Here are some important questions to ask when you’re considering purchasing a new car.

Can I take the car for a test drive?

It may sound obvious, but you should never buy a car without first taking it for a test drive. There’s simply no substitute for getting behind the wheel of a vehicle and getting a sense of how it feels to drive it. You’ll be able to tell how it handles, whether the seats are comfortable, and whether the cabin is roomy enough for your liking.

What does the warranty cover?

You may be so focused on your car that you overlook the importance of the warranty. However, it’s essential to get as much information about the warranty as you can before you decide to purchase the car. Taking the time to ensure that you’ve got a good warranty now can help to save you money in the long run.

How many miles does the car have?

This may sound like a redundant question—don’t all new cars have virtually no miles on them? In fact, even new cars may have already racked up a few miles, whether because they had to be driven to the dealership from another location or because they’ve been test driven a few times. This isn’t necessarily a deal-breaker, but it’s good to know exactly how many miles a vehicle has before you buy it.
