No Comment 7 Views

Whether it is because you have made the grade at work and can finally afford a better car or you simply want to reward yourself for a job well done, getting your first luxury car can be tricky. The criteria you want to use for picking one might be a bit different, you are thinking. After all, the investment is an order higher, and you want to make the right decision.

Well relax, because we have you covered. We looked at some luxury car dealerships, talked to experienced buyers and even did a little test shopping ourselves. The result is a short list of ways to do your homework on the luxury car you plan to buy. So, whether you are looking at the latest Mercedes Benz models for consideration or even a classic jag, it turns out the list is pretty familiar. Here are the facts.

Start with a List

It is always a good idea when spending this kind of money to have a clear idea of what you want, and don’t. What are the features that come with this kind of car that you absolutely are looking forward to buying, and what ones just aren’t that important? Not everyone wants a heated car seat, but if you live in Michigan and have a long commute, it just might be a deal breaker.

Check Out the Reviews

Today we don’t have to rely on late night television ads or word of mouth if we want to know not only what brand and model to consider, but even what dealership to buy from locally. With the web, we can check out the reviews on a number of sites, especially the auto oriented ones that abound on the web. Don’t forget to spend a bit of time checking out safety statistics and see about the company’s latest recalls to get a feel for any problems that may have been cropping up for individual manufacturers.

Just because a car is a high-end model doesn’t mean they don’t have their mechanical problems, though most of them have some pretty extensive customer service contracts in place when you buy them. If mileage is important to you, that can really differ between models so check this kind of information on a number of sites, not just the official one for the company.

Chat Up Owners

If you know someone who already owns and drives the car model you are interested in, talk to them about it. What do they love about it? What drives them crazy? If your car has an owners club that is also a great source for information, though be prepared as it will be la bit biased. No surprise that owner’s clubs tend to be people who love that particular type of car. But if you are considering a vintage model they are a great resource.

Check out Local Dealerships

Finally, head out to every local dealership and spend some time getting to know the folks there. If you buy from this dealership they will be your contact point and you need to get a feel of how good they are at taking care of their customers.

Take out the model for a test drive at each dealership and chat with the salesperson about the car model. How knowledgeable are they and do you connect with them as a future car owner? Take all this information together and now make your choice.
