What Are Some Of The Biggest Mistakes People Make When Buying A New Car?
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Hello, I’m keen to buy a new car but was just wondering if you could share with me, in your experience, what are some of the biggest mistakes people make when buying a new car?
A: Thank you for this great question! When buying a new car some of the biggest mistakes people make include not test driving the car, financing from an independent third party and third party fit outs.
Not Test Driving The Car: It is important to test drive the car so that you know what to expect from it. Sometimes people have been known to purchase cars online without test driving them, only to be very disappointed when the car doesn’t meet their expectations in real life.
Financing From An Independent Third Party: When you finance your vehicle from a third party who may not specialise in car finance they may not be as competitive or willing to assist you with the finer details of the transaction and it may take longer as there are now more people involved in the delivery process.
Third Party Fits Outs: This may include accessories or car care application products such as window tinting, paint and leather protection. When you involve a third party you can not always be sure of the quality of the products and services or the efficiency as there are now more people involved in the delivery process.
Fortunately, here at Adrian Brien Automotive we can provide you with a full range of products and services to help complete your car buying process in a professional and efficient manner – this includes having appropriately qualified Sales Professionals to assist you with test drives. Business Managers who can offer you a customised finance package to suit your individual needs including insurance and extended warranties. As well as Delivery Co-ordinators who can assist with car care application enquiries (window tinting, paint and leather protection). And because you are dealing with a trusted South Australian car dealership you can be assured that you will receive the highest quality products in a timely and efficient manner.
What Are Some Of The Advantages Of Purchasing A Demonstrator Vehicle?
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Hello, I would like to purchase a new vehicle – what are some of the advantages of purchasing a demonstrator?
A: Thank you for this great question. Demonstrator vehicles are essentially vehicles maintained by the dealership for the purpose of allowing potential customers to test drive and assess the suitability of a specific vehicle for their needs.
There are a number of key benefits in purchasing a demonstrator vehicle including:
You basically get a new car but at a discounted price.
Demonstrator vehicles are usually the upper-spec models packed with accessories representing great value for money.
You can drive away with the vehicle now (no waiting weeks or months and the car is already licensed).
The vehicle is run in (all the bugs are ironed out) and well maintained (peak condition because it is a test car for buyers).
Q: Will I be able to get a loan? I’m 18 years old and have no credit but I have a very good paying job and I have 6 months worth of pay stubs that can prove my income. There’s a car that I want to buy and it’s almost $30,000… do you think the bank would give me a loan for that car if I gave them pay stubs?
A: Thank you for your enquiry. We would love to be able to help you with the purchase of your new vehicle. We have a long standing relationship with our financiers. Your pay stubs would be sufficient for confirming your income.
To obtain a pre-approval through our financiers we would recommend that you contact one of our specialist Finance Managers at our dealership on (08) 8374 5444.
A: Thank you for this great question. Yes! We do have free wi-fi available in our service waiting lounge which will allow you to surf the internet, check emails and update your social media accounts.
The service waiting lounge also has complimentary drinks, snacks and a digital television set so whether it be – work, rest or play you’ll have plenty to do while you wait for your vehicle to be serviced.
