Buying a new car is a big financial commitment, but the finance specialists at Atzenhoffer Mitsubishi have put together a few tips to help you get the most from your budget.
Set a Budget:
Though it might sound obvious, it is important to figure out your budget before you fall in love with a car or SUV you can’t afford. Consider how much money you will be willing to spend on a car payment each month, and don’t forget to account for the other costs of vehicle ownership, like insurance, maintenance, and gas.
Once you know how much you have to spend, do your research on what kind of car would work best for you. The size, fuel efficiency, and reliability of your vehicle will play a key role in the lifetime cost of ownership, so choose wisely. Once you know what vehicle you want, use online resources like the Atzenhoffer Mitsubishi website to locate your vehicle and compare prices.
If a brand new vehicle is just out of your price range, consider buying a certified pre-owned car or SUV with similar features. Atzenhoffer Mitsubishi is proud to participate in the Mitsubishi Certified Program, which requires that the vehicles sold are less than five years old, have fewer than 60,000 miles, and have been subjected to a thorough 123-point inspection. Certified vehicles are more affordable than their new counterparts and come with impressive warranties to give you peace of mind.
Trade in Your Vehicle:
Another great way to save on your purchase price is to trade in your old vehicle. When you are ready to buy, bring your current car, truck, or SUV — and the vehicle title — in to Atzenhoffer so we can appraise it. We will make you an offer for your vehicle that you can subtract from the total purchase price of your new car.
Call Atzenhoffer Mitsubishi if you have questions about the finance process. We’re here to make bringing home a new ride as painless as possible.
