Advice for First Time Car Buyers in PA

Is it time for you to purchase your first car? If so, we have a few pieces of advice. Buying a vehicle for the first time can be stressful, but it doesn't have to be. The best thing you can do to prepare yourself for your first-time car purchase is to be prepared.

  • Do Your Research - Before you even step foot in a dealership, make sure you research, research, research. Think about what you need as a driver. Do you need a car that can sit a certain number of people? Do you want a car that gets good gas mileage? Do you prefer a specific brand of vehicle or would like a certain type of model? Look online to determine which vehicle may be the right fit for you.
  • Make a Budget - You'll also want to know how much you can afford. Add up your monthly income, deduct your current expenses, and determine your goal monthly payment. It's also best to have a down payment available, which will help lower your overall costs and monthly payments. If you're considering a new vehicle, you may have the choice between leasing and loaning as well. If you have questions, talk to our Fred Beans finance team or use our online finance tools to better understand what type of car financing is best for you.
  • Figure Out Your Credit Score - Buying a car is easier if you have good credit. That being said, it's not impossible to purchase a car with bad credit or no credit. Before you arrive at our dealership in Philadelphia or the Delaware Valley, you'll want to discover what your credit score is by using one of the many credit score apps available. Once you have your score, we can discuss your purchasing options.
