4 Tips To Land Your New Dream Car In 2021
There’s never been a better time to treat yourself. 2020 was tough, and if we’re planning on going anywhere in 2021 – we may as well do it in style. So, if you want to make that treat a brand new car, we’re here to help Roseville Automotive.
We understand that buying a new car isn’t a walk in the park. In fact, as of 2020, the average time spent in the market is 89 days. On the bright side, this looks favorable compared to 118 in 2017.
So, while the evidence suggests buying a car is getting easier, you can shorten your shopping-around time by following a few of our home-truth car-buying tips.
Whether you’re looking to drive away with a bargain or just a brand-spanking-new car, Roseville Automall has you covered:
Establish a realistic budget
Knowing exactly how much you’re willing to spend is key to a good new-car buying experience. However, you might be tempted to low-ball your budget due to the drop in car sales in 2020 – think again. While it’s true that a decline of 13.8% was reported in 2020 compared to 2019, car sales have recently seen an uptick in 2021. As a result, we wouldn’t expect car prices to drop drastically or even significantly low. Still, you might find some nice surprises along the way. Just be sure that your budget reflects the reality of the market.
Reminder: Factor insurance, road tax, routine maintenance, and a contingency plan for unexpected repairs into your budget if possible. Do your research on auto insurance companies and look into your options in getting a good deal for the coverage you need.
It’s the year to go electric
We’re running towards an electric car deadline in the US. Whether you like it or not, by 2050, 95% of cars on our roads must be electric. So, why not hop on the trend early and play your part in the movement now? There have never been more electric cars to choose from. Hyundai now even has a hybrid version of its popular Kona crossover. For this, you would need an electric charger at home. Contact a professional electrician to install one for you.
And if you’d prefer not to go fully electric yet, some excellent hybrids and plug-in hybrids are hitting the market.
Strike when the time is right
Keep an eye on motoring pages and specialist car publications to see when new or facelifted versions of models arrive on the market. Importers and dealers often offer a discount on “run out” models.
However, while you won’t always get a discount, you’re likely to get a model with upgraded equipment for the original market price.
Stay at home
There’s never been a better excuse to not have to go to a dealership. As COVID-19 continues to disrupt retail-as-usual, most dealers have moved their listings online. Here at Roseville Automall, we care about our customer’s comfort and safety, so we’ve continued keeping our website up-to-date and accessible. That way, you can get the authentic dealership experience without even having to leave your home! Why not take a look for yourself here? However, of course, if you would like to come in and see us – our doors are wide open! So, give us a call or pop in today and we’ll be glad to help you use these tips to land your dream 2021 car.
