How to Find the Perfect Car


Buying a new car is one of the biggest financial decisions you can make.

Assessing your needs is the first step in determining which car is best for you. Your next car or truck should not only be visually appealing but it should be a vehicle that offers all the amenities and functionality you need now and in the future. Key points to consider are:

  • How many passengers will you need to transport?
  • What type of driving do you do: city driving, surface streets or off-road?
  • Do you drive on wet, icy or muddy roads?
  • How far do you drive each day? (Think about fuel economy)
  • What technology features are important to you: navigation, smartphone integration, etc.?
  • What safety features are important to you?
  • Do you need a large or small cargo capacity?
  • Are you going to be using children’s car seats?
  • Do you plan on towing recreational vehicles or trailers?
  • How much space is in your garage or parking space?

Most new cars are financed for sale or lease through a dealership or financial lender. Most car shoppers are concerned about finding financing options that fit within their budgets. The best advice for determining how much you can afford is to calculate 20% of your monthly take home pay. Experts recommend that monthly car payments should not exceed this amount. By doing this mental prep-work before you start finance negotiations, you can avoid the urge to bite off more than you can chew when that beautiful new dream car is beckoning from the showroom floor.

Once you have determined your budget and assessed your needs, it is time to start looking at makes and models that are potentially a good fit. Automotive authority sites like http://www.edmunds.com/ and http://www.motortrend.com/ offer non-partial reviews and recommendations for all new models. These sites as well as http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/cars/index.htm are useful in giving you a clear picture of professional and public opinion on any new car. Your research should include a comparison between vehicles within the same class. Although you have your heart set on a specific model, it is a good idea to see how it stacks up to the competition before you take a test drive.

When your research is complete, it is finally time for a test-drive. Call or email the dealership internet department in advance to set up an appointment. Pre-set test-drive appointments save time and guarantee that the model you are interested in will be available to drive when you arrive. During your test-drive focus on how you will really use your new car and drive like you would everyday. If you drive on steep inclines, find a hill to climb. If you are a commuter, drive the car on the highway and in stop-and-go traffic.. If you navigate tight parking spaces, find one and see how well the car can maneuver into small spots. Check out the sound system to make sure it is to your liking, then turn the radio off and listen to the engine and cabin noise. Be sure take a minute to sit in the back seat to see how comfortable your passengers will be and examine the cargo space. If you plan on use a carseat, bring it with you to try out the installation.

Overall, the most important thing to remember when you are shopping fora new car is that you are in control. Car Dealerships like Ed Voyles Honda are here to help you find and finance the perfect car or truck that you will love to drive for years to come. It is our pleasure to answer your questions and help you conduct the research needed to find your next vehicle.

When Is the Best Time To Buy A Car?


Is it time to replace you current vehicle? If so you have probably already done a bit of research to find an Atlanta car dealer that offers the best selection, affordable prices and all of the auto financing options you are going to need. Most new car buyers do some significant pre-shopping online and then head out to dealership for a test drive. What many new car shoppers don’t realize is that there certain times of the year that are better than others for buying a new car.

Best Time to Buy

If you want to get the very best price on a new car (and who doesn’t?), fall and winter months offer the greatest potential discounts. Current year models that are about to be replaced by new models are usually offered with specials and incentives during these months as dealerships make room for new inventory. However, if you are shopping for a popular model in a specific color or trim set inventory could be depleted if you wait too long. So if you have your heart set on a very specific new car model, shopping earlier in the fall is often better than waiting till the end of the year when dealerships may be out of stock.

Last Minute Deals

Car dealers, like all folks who work in sales, have a quota to meet. Sales quotas are measured daily, weekly, monthly and/or quarterly so most dealers are more willing to cut a deal if their quotas have not yet been met by the end of a specific time period. By waiting until the end of the day or the last day of the month to visit a car dealership your chances of securing a great deal increase significantly. Furthermore, by shopping during the quarter end months of March, June, September or December, new car buyers might also find that dealers are willing to reduce prices a bit more in order to hit their quarterly sales criteria and cash in on potential bonuses.

Cash In on Dealer Specials or Factory Rebates

When car dealerships become overloaded with a large inventory of a specific new model they could be motivated to offer Specials at various times throughout the year. Likewise auto manufacturers will offer rebates to help dealers move out the old models and bring in the new. When these rebates are offered they are sometimes combined with extra incentives such bonus cash or customer loyalty rebates that can work together to help customers save big bucks on new cars.
