Ready To Make A Move?

The journey to buying your first car can be fraught with both anticipation and anxiety. Between finding a way for it, figuring out what kind of car to buy, and whether to purchase from a well-received dealership or a private owner, there are many scenarios to consider before making a decision. The professionals at Beaver County Nissan see this every day and want to ensure we offer some peace of mind with our helpful tips for first-time car buyers. There is no one-size-fits-all scenario when you're about to take the plunge into the world of car ownership, but we will be here for you when you're ready. Check out some of our tips for first-time car buyers, and contact us with any questions.

Consider Your Budget

Before anything else, ask yourself if you can afford this vehicle. It's important not to get off to a poor start if you're building your credit, so ensure your monthly payments - plus insurance, maintenance, etc. - are within your budget.

Down Payment

If you are able to put some money down, it will both lower your monthly payments and also potentially lower your interest rate if you are looking to finance. Saving up some cash to make a healthy down payment is among the most important tips for first-time car buyers we can impart.

Do Your Research

The sheer amount of makes and models of vehicles in the U.S. has reached staggering proportions. Are you looking for a sedan or coupe? SUV? Truck? Good fuel mileage? Good looks? Sharp handling? Comfortable interior? All great questions to ask. The experts at Beaver County Nissan can fill you in, or point you in the right direction when you visit us for tips for first-time car buyers.

New or Used

Both routes have their advantages and disadvantages. New vehicles come with a manufacturer's warranty, while used vehicles may not. New vehicles also have the most up-to-date technology, but you may find a used vehicle that's only a few years old has everything you want and need. Also, every used vehicle purchase at Beaver County Nissan arrives with a Lifetime Powertrain Warranty. How's that for a tip for first-time used car buyers?

Buying vs. Leasing

This one is a loaded scenario, but the main point to consider is how much you will be driving this vehicle. Check out our comprehensive list of pros and cons, full of plenty of tips for first-time car owners and buyers alike.
