Buying a car for the first time and have little to no previous buying experience? Don't worry! We know it can be nerve-racking and a bit scary, but we are here to help you every step of the way. Just remember to relax and have fun!

First, you want to establish a budget. How much can I afford each month? Be realistic, and plan ahead. Also, take into account what your insurance will cost. Will it go up, or stay the same?

Next, make a list and prioritize your needs and wants.
  1. What are my transportation needs? 
    • How many people and stuff does my vehicle need to hold? 
    • Do I need to tow anything around the valley?
    • Other transportation needs? Ski racks?
  2. How much will I be driving, and what kind of driving?
    • What MPG is important for me to have?
    • Do I need navigation or hands free wireless?
    • Cruise control?
  3. What else is important to me?
    • What safety features are must haves for me?
    • Do I need leather seats, backup camera, remote start?
    • Do I have a hard time remembering to service my vehicles, so will maintenance reminders in a vehicle benefit me?

Do some homework. 


Hopefully, you've identified the vehicle that's perfect for your personality and budget, and now is a great time to learn about the financing process.

Don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or if you'd like to know more. We look forward to helping you get into your dream vehicle!
