When to Buy a New Car

Deciding when to buy a new car is the first thing Midland-area drivers will need to consider, and there are a number of factors to look at to determine if the time is right to upgrade your ride. Our finance team offers the following tips on how to know whether it’s time for you to buy that new Honda Accord, Pilot, or CR-V you’ve had your eye on:

  1. Are you increasingly paying for expensive repairs? You may find at some point that your annual repair bills are costing you more than what you’d pay for a new car.
  2. If you are beginning to feel that your car isn’t safe to drive, it’s probably a good time to upgrade to a newer model.
  3. Life changes such as marriage or starting a family may mean that it’s time you should buy a new car better suited to your current situation and lifestyle.
  4. If your car is failing emissions tests and you have to pay for costly repairs to get it to pass, buying a newer model could save you money in the long run.

How to Find Your Ideal New Car

If you decide that the time is right to buy a new car, the first thing you should do is set a budget and stick to it. Our convenient online payment calculator makes it easy to find out what your monthly payments will be. The following steps will help you to find the right car for your lifestyle and your budget:

  1. Consider what your requirements are in a new car. Do you need a lot of cargo space? What tech and safety features do you want? Once you have determined the specs and features that best suit your needs, you’ll find it easier to choose the model that’s right for you.
  2. Narrow your search down to the top three models, and then research their safety ratings, reliability, lifespan, etc. Test driving each vehicle you are interested in is the best way to learn how they handle on Odessa streets.
  3. Once you’ve decided on a final choice, check your dealership options and request price quotes. It’s a good idea to do some research on what other shoppers in your area have paid for the same model.
