The Three Questions About New Cars That Make Shopping Easy
What Should You Ask When Buying A Car?
Buying a new car is a big deal—after all, after buying a house, a car is the second biggest purchase most Americans will make in their lives. Thus, you don’t want to rush the process, and instead, take your time and ask these three questions before charging into the car buying process.
If you already know which Chevrolet vehicles you want to learn more about, get a head start on the process by scheduling a test drive at Spitzer Chevy Amherst. Until then, here are the questions you’ll want to ask before buying a car.
How Will You Pay For The Car?
Financing a car often breaks into many sub-questions, like:
Should you buy or lease?
What’s your budget/What Can You Afford?
What’s your trade-in worth?
Thankfully, at Spitzer Chevrolet Amherst, we have a finance center to help you answer all the above questions—in fact, if you speak to a member of our finance team, you’ll receive advice and a full break-down of how a lease and loan will reflect on your budget. Meanwhile, our online tools can help you check your credit score without harming your buying power and to check an estimate of your trade-in vehicle to help you plan ahead.

What Type Of Car Do You Want/Need?
When it comes to your car, you’ll first want to think of how you’ll use your vehicle—is it a fun car you’ll only take out on weekends? A daily vehicle for your commutes? A massive SUV for off-roading and family-road trips? To make your decision easier, feel free to browse our online new, used, and Certified Pre-Owned inventory to explore the vehicles that fit your needs and budget.
Once you’ve narrowed your choices, you’ll want to schedule a test drive to see which rides fit your style best. During your test drive, pay attention to the ride quality inside—specifically, ask questions like:
Are the seats comfortable?
Does the infotainment cover the tech you need?
How responsive is the motor?
Don’t be afraid to bring a passenger along for the ride, and get a second opinion—especially on the quality of the ride for passengers. After your test drive, feel free to ask a member of our sales team any further questions—they’re always happy to assist, and can even help you find a few vehicles that respond to your needs.
How Will You Handle Repairs And Maintenance?
For long-term ownership, you’ll want to ask how you’ll take care of your ride. To help, we have a service center staffed with factory-trained professionals who understand how Chevys work and how to make intricate fixes. You can also consider investing in protection plans, like our Engines for Life program, which covers your motor for repairs up to $6,000.
