For most people, the process is often one filled with hidden charges and unexpected twists and turns.
That’s why at ROUTE 22 NISSAN we strongly urge all of our customers to do their research and ask as many questions as possible. Is the car right for them? Is the dealership right for them? We have included these items to help you in that process.
1. Have you compared NISSAN to other cars in the marketplace?
• We have found Advantastar, a tool which compares NISSAN vehicles to any other vehicle in the market place, to be a wonderful resource for our customers, providing them with invaluable information from such great industry periodicals as Car and Driver, Road and Track and KBB.
2. Have you asked yourself these simple questions:
• Do I want to lease or finance the vehicle?
• Approximately how many miles a year am I driving?
• Do I expect my family to grow in number?
• How many passengers will I be driving in my vehicle at a time?
• What am I doing with my current vehicle?
• What do I like about my current vehicle and what don’t I like about it?
Answering questions such as these can help you in your
journey in buying a new car. We implore you to contact us so that we can
further assist you.
Knowing the value of your trade-in is very important in determining the direction you will take when purchasing your new car.
At Route 22 Nissan we utilize KBB and Autotrader because of the competitive value and transparency they offer. That’s why with our Your True Price we include you in the process so you know what your vehicle is worth. Not only that, we offer to buy your vehicle whether you purchase or not.
While it may be possible to find an auto loan that requires a low down payment, such as 5%, it is best to put down as much as you can afford-preferably at least 20% to minimize your overall cost for the loan. A higher down payment reduces the amount of money you need to borrow, which reduces your monthly payments and the amount of interest you pay overall.
A down payment doesn’t have to be all cash. If you already have a car, any trade-in allowance the dealer gives you can be credited toward your down payment. Or you can sell it yourself, which will typically get you more money than trading it in. Keep in mind that any cash rebates that are in effect when you buy can also be put towards the down payment.
To get a ballpark figure for the monthly payment, Consumer Reports’ financial experts recommend that your total debt payment be no more than 36 percent of your gross income.
Again, if you have any questions or concerns regarding how much you can afford monthly, please allow us to help you. Contact us and we will set up a private consultation with a Product Specialist who can discuss your financial situation.
When someone buys a NISSAN they are making a very wise decision. When they buy it at Route 22 Nissan that decision becomes downright brilliant.
