  1. Failing to research financing options: While the dealerships have financing available, you don’t have to go through them if you don’t want. If you would rather go through your own personal bank or somewhere else be sure to do your research before hand to know your choice before going in to look for your new vehicle.
  2. Shopping based on the monthly payment: When you are choosing a vehicle, it is best to consider the overall cost of ownership rather than just focusing on the monthly payment. Consider the cost of insurance and overall length of the loan.
  3. Skipping the test drive: It is recommended that when you are purchasing a new vehicle that you test drive between 4 and 7 vehicles. Test driving a vehicle is a great way to see if you actually like the vehicle or not. Reviews and pictures are helpful but actually getting inside and experiencing the vehicle perform is the best research.
  4. Not getting a used car checked out: If you are purchasing a used vehicle, be sure to have it checked over by a certified technician. It may look perfect all around but there could be something wrong going on under the hood that you would never see.
  5. Choosing a vehicle that is not suited to your needs: Before even visiting a dealership, think about what type of vehicle you want. Need a vehicle with great fuel economy for your daily work commute? Need a vehicle with large amounts of interior space? These are all important things to know before even stepping into a dealership.
