Top 5 questions to ask before buying a car

NEW OR USED?

The golden question. You’ve probably heard a new car takes a hit in value the instant you drive it off the lot. While the difference in price is clear, you may decide that ‘new car feel’ can’t be matched in a pre-loved car. Buying new could also be the better choice if you intend on keeping the car for the long haul, while travelling the used route requires taking a more rigorous approach. Regardless of which option you go with, having a rock solid warranty policy is essential.

What is the warranty policy?

Is there anything that comes with more built-in peace of mind? Ensure one exists to protect you from what’s to come, along with how long it runs for. Drill down into what exactly is covered – often wear-and-tear parts aren’t covered, or you’ll pay a small deductible – and weigh it up against all your other options. You may also wish to ask whether it can be extended to cover extra years for extra peace mind. We think it’s worth a shop around before even stepping foot into the finance office.

Can I see the maintenance history?

While it’s easy to be blinded by the glint and glimmer of that Sorento, grabbing the lowdown of where your car’s been and gone may be the smartest move you’ll make. You won’t be able to discern everything about the car – it’s unlikely every scuff and fender dent in its history will have been recorded in its lifetime – but it’s a snapshot you’ll learn too much from to pass up.

What payment plans are available?

Daydreaming about that brand new Sportage may be more fun than thinking about how you’re going to budget for it, but it pays to find out what’s available. How much of a deposit do you have saved up, and how long do you have to go to fully finance your new baby? Are you going to go with a monthly payment plan or take out a loan? If a loan is more appropriate, we highly recommend checking out your local credit union – they often offer great low-interest deals that the big banks can’t beat.

Are there any additional benefits?

We know buying a car is more than just trading cash for wheels. From the friendly smile when you step in the door to the movie tickets on the driver’s seat, it pays to see where your dealer goes above and beyond. In terms of options, the days are long gone when all you could choose from was the colour or manual vs auto – some new cars are fully customisable down to heated seats. With all packages now available to you, make sure you fully explore all options available to you with your dealer to nab the best deal for your budget and lifestyle.
At Ferntree Gully KIA, we know that buying a car is one of the biggest purchases in your life. Come in for a chat with one of our expert staff to assess your needs.
