Are you feeling lost in the market for a new or used car, truck or SUV? Don Robinson Mitsubishi’s expert sales associates have compiled a handy list of tips to consider when researching your next vehicle.
Consider Your Wallet
All shoppers need to consider their budget when purchasing a new vehicle. While a tricked-out luxury SUV might be what your heart desires, your wallet might be happier with a compact economy car.
A good rule of thumb for most car-buyers is that vehicle payments should be no more than 20 percent of your monthly income; however, only spend what you can afford. Keep in mind that vehicle maintenance, insurance, and gas are other expenses that come with car ownership.
The sales associates at Don Robinson are well-versed in helping our customers find a vehicle that meets their budgetary needs.
What Do You Need?
The next part of vehicle research is to evaluate what the must-have features are to meet your needs. Although a two-door convertible would make you the envy of all your friends, it won’t be much help to you when taking the kids to soccer practice or transporting bulky furniture.
Consider how many passengers your vehicle needs to carry, then begin to think about aspects like cargo space, gas mileage, and comfort. Eventually, the options will begin to narrow.
Utilize Online Tools
A plethora of online tools exist to help you at whatever stage you are in the buying process. Independent services like Edmunds provide vehicle reviews and resources. OEM sites like the Mitsubishi website offer a comprehensive overview of vehicle features. Dealership websites – like Don Robinson Mitsubishi – let you browse their inventory to find a vehicle on the lot in your price range.
If you’re still feeling overwhelmed by the options, don’t hesitate to give the consultants at Don Robinson Mitsubishi a call. We are here to help you find the perfect vehicle for you.
