Questions for New Car Shopping 

The process for buying a new vehicle can be stressful and at times confusing.  There is always plenty of information available on the Internet for researching a car but what do you do when you are at the dealership?  We have a few questions that you should keep in mind when looking at buying a vehicle.

Often when at a dealership, there is some question you forget to ask while you are buying a new vehicle.  Many people also think that asking a salesperson questions is more important when the vehicle is used than when you are buying new.  However, no matter the vehicle status, asking questions is always important.  So, here are 5 questions that you should be prepared with when buying a new car: 

1.How much is the car after fees and licensing? 

This way you are aware of exactly how much the car will cost and not just focus on the monthly payments. 

2.What does the warranty cover? 

This way you’ll learn if there are any perks included in the deal and you’ll understand exactly what you will and won’t be paying for in terms of aftermarket, repairing and maintaining.
