It’s time to get your 191 on!

Purchasing a new car doesn’t have to be complicated, just follow these simple steps to make sure you pick the right car for you, and get the best deal on finance.

1. Trust Your Dealer

The most important thing about your transaction when you purchase a new car will be the trust you have in the person who is selling it to you. Do your research, get friend and family recommendations and visit a reputable dealer with great reviews - if you have a good, reliable seller with excellent finance relationships, you will surely find the car that is right for you and your family with the best expert advice on hand.

2. Research Your Features

Are you sure you know what you’re looking for in a car? Think about all the vehicle features your new motor is going to need in order to get you through the next five years. Consider size in front and back, boot space, safety features and how the ongoing costs such as fuel, insurance and tax and financing of your new car are going to impact your monthly outgoings. Even if you don’t have the exact make and model in mind, your dealer will be able to point you in the best direction if you know what features are top of your priority list.

3. Plan Your Trade In

Hold back on any impulsive decisions on the shop floor by knowing the value of your trade in before you go. It will also help guide your budget if you know what you have to work with.

4. Get A Great Finance Deal

Don’t just take whatever deal you’re presented with when it comes to finance - think about getting a competitive quote from a trusted provider.

A good dealer will always hand over the keys and let you take your car out for a spin and there’s no better way to get to know your new motor. Following that, all that you need to do is get your finance and you’re all set!
