So you’re growing your family? Have you planned for everything that grows with your family? I know when we added to our family we had to get a bigger car. My tiny car wasn’t very practical for a family of three let alone adding another. It was time for a new car but looking felt like an overwhelming task.
For starters, the most important bit of advice I could give would be do your research. You can’t make the right purchase without knowing the facts about the make, model and price of your car. Knowledge is power and you want the power when you are making a huge purchase. I found that Cars.com is a great resource to learning about your potential purchase. Their website has a ton of information to help you make an informed purchase.
The Videos & Reviews feature on Cars.com is extremely helpful. They provide extensive reviews and essential information about a wide variety of different cars. This site was fantasitic because it gave the good and the bad. They don’t hide the bad reviews. If something is poorly rated, hasn’t performed well or not a good purchase, they aren’t afraid to put it out there.
So with your info in hand shop around for your new car. I checked several different dealerships ans test drove a lot. Stick to your plan and know what you want to pay for a car. You’ll go back and forth but if you’re prepared, you’ll be happy with your purchase.
