Knowing When to Buy a New Car

Enhancing your Naperville commutes with a new car is a big investment, so it’s important to decide when to buy a new car, or when to hold off. It might be a good time to buy a new car if these factors apply to you:

  1. Repair costs are building. It may be a more affordable option to invest in a new car with manageable monthly payments than continuing to invest in your current repair costs.
  2. Your current mechanical issues may be making your daily commutes unsafe. 
  3. You’re looking for a new model that fits your interior comfort or space needs. 
  4. Your vehicle no longer passes emissions tests. 

Matching Your Budget

Whether you’re searching for your first car or third car, it’s not always easy to find the best price that fits your budget. Thankfully, there are many tools available to help you with every step of the car buying process: 

  1. Make sure you’re aware of all your options. Don’t just limit your search to the one car you have your eye on, as you may end up missing a great car that meets your needs and budget. Explore our full inventory by using our Vehicle Finder Service tool. 
  2. After you’ve found a couple options, narrow your list down to the top three, and dive deeper into their safety ratings, reliability, standard features, and more. When you have the time, stop into a Yorkville-area dealership for a test drive. 
  3. With our payment calculator tool, you can enter vehicle price, loan terms, and a down payment amount to explore how a particular vehicle fits into your budget. 
  4. To make sure you’re getting the best deal for the vehicle, be sure to check out our current new vehicle specials
