Just about the entire process of buying a new car is awesome: perusing through Sunridge Nissan inventory online, test driving a new Nissan Rogue or Nissan Altima in person, and then actually taking that vehicle home and enjoying all the new performance and technological upgrades that they provide.
However, one aspect of buying a new automobile is decidedly not fun: paying for it. Thankfully, we have a fantastic in-house finance department that wants to help you get the most out of your purchase and to make sure that purchase goes as smoothly as possible. To accomplish all this, they recommend the following:
Know Your Budget. This is the obvious first step, but not everyone does it. To know what model (and what trim of that model) you actually can afford requires some consideration to what you can fit into your monthly budget. Look at your costs and decide just how much car you can afford.
Decide on your loan term. Once you’ve got that number, you’ll want to have a sense of just how long you want your auto loan to be. We can accommodate very short loans for those that want to pay higher amounts and get it paid off quickly, but we also can accommodate customers that want a nicer car and are willing to spread payments out over a longer period of time to get it. We can do whatever you need, but it helps for us to know what you want!
Consider leasing. If you’re someone who trades in their cars every two or three years, consider leasing instead of buying. The monthly payments are lower, and it’ll save you sunk costs on the back end if you were going to trade quickly, too.
