A car does not have to be brand new to be new to you. Buying any car is exciting, regardless of whether it is new or pre-owned. There are a number of considerations that can be quite confusing including factors such as which pre-owned Chevy dealership should you put your trust in?
If you are going to buy a pre-owned car in Orland Park, there are a few tips that will result in your getting a good deal on a great car.
Stick to Your Budget
Before you even leave home, know exactly how much you can spend on a pre-owned car. This is extremely important, so be realistic. You should know what you “can” spend, and you need to know what you “should” spend. Just because you find an affordable car does not necessarily mean it is your best option.
Many studies indicate that a car buyer should not spend more than 20 percent of his or her take-home pay for monthly car payments. Many other things need to be accounted for including rent or mortgage payments, utilities, food, etc.
Narrow Your Search
There are plenty of used cars available, and there are two classifications. When you are at the dealership, ask yourself if you would be better off paying a little more for a certified pre-owned car or will a non-certified used car suit your purposes. Also, take into account how you will use the car. If you have a large family, you will need plenty of seating and space. If you are using the car for a long daily commute from Orland Park, fuel economy may be the most important consideration. Focus on the features you need, not necessarily the ones you want.
Buying from a pre-owned Chevy dealership is your best bet. The dealership will take your current car in trade and has attractive financing plans available.
