How to Buy a New Car

Buying a new car can feel intimidating. While choosing the right car that both suits your lifestyle and your finances is serious business, it can also be exciting and fun when you know how to plan for your purchase. Lexus of Chattanooga has a history of being one of the most respected Chattanooga car dealerships, and we’re here to help you buy your new car.


When to Buy a New Car

Cars don’t have expiration dates, but they do have tell-tale signs that it’s time to buy a new car. These questions can help:

  • Are you spending more on repairs than you would spend on a new car payment? Compare what you spend on repairs to the costs of a new car.
  • Have you ever felt unsafe behind the wheel? Don’t sacrifice your peace of mind when you’re driving through the mountains near Lookout Mountain. If you’re concerned about being stranded on a regular basis, it’s time for an upgrade.
  • Are your needs changing? Your family is growing, or you’re an empty-nester. You’ve become a home-owner after years of renting. You’re moving from Ooltewah to Manchester. Life changes should prompt you to assess whether it’s time to trade in your old car.

Making a Budget

It’s recommended that you spend no more than 15% of your income on car payments and associated costs like fuel, insurance, maintenance. If you’re carrying a lot of debt already, you should spend a smaller percentage of your income on a car. Once you know your budget you can see if you should buy new or used–keep in mind that the type of car you choose will also affect things like long-term maintenance, insurance coverage rates, and more. Our finance center offers tips on how to buy a new car, including how to choose between leasing and financing, ways to find the lowest prices and new car offers, and how to calculate your car payments.
