How to Buy a New Car

If you’ve had the same car for over five years, chances are your car may still be in pretty good shape. But maybe you’re wanting to upgrade and are ready to buy a new car. With so many options in the San Antonio area, there are several ways to go about buying a new car. Luckily, Nyle Maxwell Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Castroville has put together a guide to help you get the most out of your car-buying experience and find the perfect new car for you. 



Knowing When to Buy a New Car

Many Alamo Heights drivers feel that they may not need to buy a new car just yet. Here are some signs that it may be time for an upgrade:

  • You’re constantly bringing your current vehicle to a service center for repairs. 
  • You feel unsafe driving your car on the Balcones Heights roads at times. 
  • You may be starting a family or just need a vehicle with more interior space/cargo storage. 
  • If your car is constantly failing emission tests, getting it up to standards can prove to be quite costly. Buying a new car could save you money. 

How to Find the Perfect New Car

Now that you know when to buy a new car, it’s time to start searching for the perfect new vehicle to upgrade your Castroville commute. Here are some helpful tips to get you started on your search for a new car: 

  1. Narrow your search by determining your own driving habits and what features you desire most in a car. 
  2. Eliminate your options until you have your top three choices. You’ll then want to research each of those three options on safety, recall history, reviews, and more. 
  3. When you’ve narrowed it down to one option, search your local Castroville dealership and to see which dealer has the vehicle you want and for what price. 
  4. Check to see if there are any holiday specials coming up that you can take advantage of to help knock off some of the price.

How to Save For a New Car

When shopping for a new car, it’s important to set a budget. Here are some aspects of a new vehicle that you should monitor closely so you don’t overspend: 

  • Sales Tax: This tax is added to your car loan payment is usually non-negotiable. 
  • Interest Rate: The lower the interest rate on your car, the lower your monthly payments will be. However, not all drivers may qualify for a low interest rate, which is based on credit score. 
  • Trade-in Value: Trading in your current vehicle for a new one can help with the cost of a new car. If you still owe money on your current vehicle, then the dealership will add that cost to the overall cost of the new vehicle. You can use our online trade-in tool to help determine your current car’s trade-in value.
