Even if you've bought a car before, buying a new one can still be a complicated experience. Here at Mohawk Ford Sales, we want to make sure that our clients get the best possible experience. This means making sure that our clients get the best possible car.
How can you make sure that you get the right car for your needs? You can start by asking the right questions. When you know which questions to ask, you are that much closer to getting the perfect car for your lifestyle.
How Does This Car Fit Your Specific Needs?
What do you need from your car? Obviously, you need a vehicle to take you from one place to another. However, your driving needs are more specific than that. Will you use this car primarily to drive to work or school? Will you do a lot of highway driving, or will you do mostly city driving?
Once you have figured out what you specifically need from your car, you can ask your car dealer which cars fit the bill best.
How Fuel-Efficient is this Car?
Once you start looking at specific cars, ask your car dealer about fuel efficiency. Fuel efficiency is one of the biggest factors that can impact your overall driving experience.
Again, it helps to know what your own needs are. Some cars get excellent highway fuel mileage, while others are designed for fuel efficiency during city driving. If you are interested in a specific car, ask your dealer what kind of mileage it gets.
How Long is the Warranty? What Does the Warranty Cover?
Next, ask a representative from your dealership about their warranties. Warranties aren't determined by the dealership itself. They are determined by the car manufacturer.
At Mohawk Ford Sales, we are happy to say that Ford stands behind its products. We see the results of Ford’s quality products every day in our service center.
Still, it's always good to ask how long your warranty will last and what that warranty will cover. This way, you can drive with a bit more peace of mind.
What Safety Features Does this Car Have?
At Mohawk Ford Sales, one of the most common questions we get - for good reason - is what safety features our customers can expect from their cars. If you only ask one question about your next car, make it this one.
Safety features are the most important aspect of your car. Remember that these features go beyond the airbags. Some cars have features such as rearview cameras, automatic braking technology, lane assistance technology, and much more.
What Other Features Does this Car Have?
Once you have determined that a car has enough safety features, you'll want to find out about the car's other features. Cars come with all kinds of amenities these days. Many come with options like touchscreen navigation technology.
These features can make a big difference in your driving experience, so get to know them well before you make your decision. Sometimes a car buying decision comes down to just one or two amenities.
Can I See a Report?
This next question is specific to used car buying. If you need a budget-friendly way to get your next car, then buying a used car can make a great choice.
However, used car shopping does come with a bit of a risk. You can minimize that risk by asking for a car report. By looking at the car report, you can see whether or not the car has been in any accidents or disasters. You can also see whether or not the car is up-to-date on all of its services, whether or not it has the original paint job, and more.
What are Your Financing Options?
Finally, you might ask your car dealer whether or not they have any in-house financing options. In-house financing can make a good choice for those who might have a hard time getting a loan elsewhere.
An auto loan from a bank or a similar source can often require applicants to have excellent credit. However, not everybody has that kind of credit.
If you don’t have great credit, you may be able to get financing directly from your car dealership. At Mohawk Ford Sales of Hamilton, ON, for example, we offer simple financing options.
