Today is an exciting time for drivers buying from the new car market: innovations like hybrid and electric cars are laying the groundwork for a genuine revolution in the way we drive. So if you’re about to take the plunge, we’ve put together some inside tips from mechanics and dealers on choosing a car that takes advantage of current innovations while not taking too big a bite out of your budget.
Strike While The Iron Is Hot
When you eventually settle on the model you want, don’t go running to the dealership straight away. Car sales target drivers, with bonuses used to incentivise dealers to sell as many cars as possible. These targets are usually based on quarterly sales. So, March, June, September, and December are typically the best time to go for the kill. The dealers want to hit their targets, so they will be more willing to bargain over prices and repayment plans.
Try and find a quiet time to browse as well: weekends are bad as they tend to cram the dealerships and make you look less valuable as a customer. Same goes for the start of the month after a lot of people have just been paid. The kind of car you’re after is another thing to take into consideration: sportier or drop-top models will be a cheaper solution to buy in winter than in summer. However, bear in mind that you don’t want to leave it to the very end of the quarter to go shopping: once the dealers hit their targets, they’re not going to be looking to do you any favors just to sell a car.
Ditch The Extras
Get Your Costs Straight
When buying your car, there’s a lot more to consider than just the upfront costs you’ll be paying when you make your initial purchase. Consider what costs you’ll have ahead of you: servicing, warranty, insurance, and so forth. Remember, smaller cars usually get cheaper insurance, as well as cars with smaller engines, on the assumption that since they’ll be going less quickly, there’ll be a smaller risk of accidents. A smaller engine on a lighter car also leads to better mileage in the long run. Think well ahead about the way you’ll be driving and what you need from your car to make the most financially astute decision.
