The Most Important Things to Know Before Buying a Car

You've heard the old saying, "knowledge is power", but have you ever applied it to buying a vehicle? For most people buying a car is one of the biggest investments they will make, and it is very important buyers stay educated. We here at AutoCenters Nissan have came up with a few things you should know before purchasing a vehicle in 2016. 

First off, the important thing to remember is  not all car salespeople are shady, and not all dealerships are trying to trick you.

  • Know what vehicle fits your situation best, and know your budget.
  • Do your research on the internet
  • Always see the car in person
  • Your trade in is never going to be worth as much as you think
  • Everything is not always negotiable
  • Salespeople are not mechanics
  • Do not view your salesperson as a "shark", chances are they are just as nervous about selling you a car as you are about buying one
  • Know your credit situation before requesting a loan
  • Don't forget about car insurance
  • Get everything in writing
  • Check the vehicle's history report
  • Decide if you need a new or used vehicle
  • Research all vehicle incentives
  • Don't rush the test drive
We hope these simple pointers are able to get our valued customers headed in the right direction.
