Buying-a-new-car-2What should you be looking for when shopping for a new car? At Bosak Honda in Michigan City, IN, we want your used-car shopping experience to be as stress-free as possible, so we have compiled a guideline of things to think about while looking for your next car.

Decide What You Are Looking For
This may seem obvious, but the first step in buying a used car is deciding what you want. Are you a brand loyalist or are you more partial to a certain type of car, like an SUV or a sedan? Once you have decided, take the opportunity to check out competing models' prices to be sure you are choosing the right vehicle for both your lifestyle and budget.

Research
Once you have chosen the vehicle of your dreams, it is time to research. Key things to learn are standard features of the model, reliability, safety, fuel economy, and resale value. You can also take this time to read reviews written by people who currently own that type of car.

When shopping for a used car it is important to understand the difference between a used car and a Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) car. A CPO car has passed a thorough inspection and is backed by a manufacturer’s warranty. At Bosak Honda, we are proud to offer a wide variety of CPO cars to suit your needs.

Financing
Bosak Honda is proud to offer competitive dealership financing to our customers. You can start the financing process from the comfort of your own home, simply fill out our online application. We’ll contact you as soon as it is processed. Have a question while you are filling it out? We have representatives available online to answer any questions or concerns you may have, or you can give us a call at (800) 959-4660.
