Becoming an educated auto shopper in a high tech world

If you haven’t purchased a new vehicle in a while, you will be amazed to find there’s a whole new world of modern technology to benefit your auto shopping in central, NY.

Our customers are coming into the NYE Automotive showrooms more educated than ever. They often arrive with exact specs on the vehicles they are looking for, if not the exact price they want to pay and how they want those payments spread over the next few years. Many even come in with a precise model in mind that they‘ve seen for sale on our website. Browsing isn’t something most people start at the dealership anymore … today browsing usually begins online.

NYE Automotive constantly updates the extensive catalog of new and used vehicles we have for sale on our website. You can now shop from the privacy of your own home in your pajamas. Try that at the dealership and you’re likely to get a few strange looks, at the very least. Color photos and informative descriptions of the vehicles guide you through the inventory to help you locate your dream choice.

Unless you just hit the Mega Millions lottery, financing is likely to be a concern. Some people want short-term loans, others go for a longer haul with smaller payments. Obviously, your personal financial situation will dictate your payment schedule, and your NYE professional will work with you to create a financing plan that is affordable and comfortable.

It’s recommended to start planning your financing even before you start thinking about what vehicle you prefer, so you can make a payment plan that will be one you don’t regret later. With this knowledge in hand, you won’t get in over your head when you start looking at everything that is available for sale.

Don’t forget to check with your insurance agent as well for an estimate on what the impact of the new (or new to you) vehicle will have on your payments there. And given the recent increases in the price of gasoline, project a comparison in fuel expenses between the vehicle you have now and that dream model soon to come.

Once you have a vehicle in mind, and figure you can afford it, it’s time for a test drive. Don’t feel like we are rushing you to make a decision. Take the vehicle out for a real test drive in different driving conditions — in the city, in the country, on the highway. Don’t forget to bring the family along too; you won’t have to listen to the kids complain during every trip in a vehicle they don’t care for if you make them a part of the decision making process.

The ideal auto shopping experience is one where the buyer, the salesperson, and the dealership all agree it was beneficial for everyone. You want a vehicle that is safe and reliable while within your financial means, and, obviously, the business end of the deal means your NYE reps also need to make a profit. Finding that area where everyone is satisfied is the true sign of a good deal.

If you are new to the automotive shopping experience – welcome aboard. It’s really not a scary experience, especially here at NYE Automotive. You can start right on our website at www.nyeauto.com, and always remember our friendly salespeople are here to help you every step of the way.
