Buying new vehicle? Here are some tips!

Buying new vehicle? Here are some tips!

Dealer Options

Even though dealer options add extra fees to your purchase, you may easily roll the price of these features onto your monthly payments (if you’re financing your vehicle). Because of that you should really consider getting any or all of the following add-ons!

Graphics 

If you want to add some flair to your car, like pinstriping or other graphics, your best bet is to have it done at the dealership.  Especially if they’re factory supplied graphics, your dealership probably has experience applying them and this will make for a high-quality appearance. 

Clear bra/paint film protection

A clear bra is a film that the dealership applies to protect the paint of your car from flying debris. These are non-invasive and also tend to be durable.  Depending on cost, these may be a nice addition to your car that may keep the stone chips away. 

Performance Upgrades 

Dealerships will be glad to add authorized performance accessories to your vehicle. Best part is that you can get these installed at the dealer and tack the price of them onto your monthly financing plan. How great would that be?!

Seasonal Floor Mats 

There are inexpensive floor mats and then there are factory floor mats.  Factory floor mats are expensive but boy are they wonderful.  They are designed specifically for your vehicle and will perfectly match.  Unless money is super tight, spring for a set of genuine factory floor mats and you’ll be glad you did. Check with Savage L & B, a full-service Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep and RAM car dealer in Robesonia, PA, to see what they have to offer!

Rust Proofing

While new vehicles use galvanized steel to protect themselves from rust, some people who live in areas that see lots of snow may want to consider getting rust proofing done.  Talk to your dealer about this.

Protecting Your Vehicle’s Paint

A paint protection package is usually just a super professional waxing. We don’t think that it’s really necessary, but if offered at a good price could be worth the money.  A wax coating on your vehicle is an extra protectant between your car’s new paint and harmful conditions, such as the sun’s UV rays.   

Extended Warranty 

The fact is that the most expensive parts on a vehicle are typically covered by the traditional new car warranty.  Many people believe that used car warranties aren’t necessary but that may be a judgement for the vehicle buyer to assess.  One exception is when purchasing a used vehicle.  Purchasing an extended warranty could be a great way to reduce your risk incase anything happens down the road. 

Anti-Theft Alarms 

Many new vehicles have an anti-theft measure available from the factory so you do not have to worry about that.  If the car you are considering doesn’t have an alarm, have the dealership install it.  You’ll find all sorts of third party installers who will do it cheaper but the odds are best that your dealer will do a better job since they know their vehicles quite well!
