Tips for Saving Time and Money When Buying a New Luxury Car

2016-01-06T11:55:45+00:00January 6th, 2016|Santa Barbara Auto Group|

Santa Barbara Auto Group offers tips for customers looking for a new or pre-owned luxury vehicle to help make their purchase experience easier.

Purchasing a new car is an exciting and important decision. For this reason, it is important for customers to take time to research their top choices and consider all of their financial options. Whether it is your first purchase or time to trade in for a newer model, we offer some tips that will help guide you through the buying process to make it easier and more efficient.

Decide on your Top Picks

Before heading out to a dealership, it is often helpful to do some online research to determine what brands and models are your favorite.   There are many factors to consider including the kind of power, efficiency, performance, safety, technology, and functionality you need in a car. Do you have a favorite brand? Are there new or updated models you want to learn more about? Consider reviewing consumer choice lists from leading automotive journals or safety reviews from institutions such as the IIHS or NHTSA.

New or Used?

Once you have narrowed down your preferences, it is important to consider whether you want a new or pre-owned vehicle. If the car you love is out of your price range, it may be possible to find a certified pre-owned model that you can afford. Certified pre-owned models are thoroughly tested and reviewed to ensure they meet brand standards and often come with comprehensive warranty options.

Research Pricing and Incentives

Whether you prefer a new or pre-owned model, it is important to research the pricing and incentives available on your favorite picks. At Santa Barbara Auto Group, we provide sale, lease, and financing specials online so buyers can easily compare models and find the best price. Be sure to ask your sales person about available cash incentives and seasonal specials.

Take a Test Drive

Once you find the car that is right for you, be sure to take it out for a comprehensive test drive. You will be spending a lot of time in your new vehicle so it is important to make sure that it is comfortable and provides the power, control, and comfort that feels best for you. This is a great time to ask questions about the vehicle’s performance, safety, and entertainment features.

At Santa Barbara Auto Group, we are dedicated to providing an exceptional buying experience. Once you find the car that is right for you, our friendly sales representatives will be happy to assist you through the buying process to provide information about the car, offer a test drive, consider the best incentives, financing, and sales options, and deliver the car to you with personalized attention.
