You’re in the market for a new car and you’re spoilt for choice. You don’t know quite where to start or what to be looking out for. Here are some tips on what to consider. A new car is at the top of the list of big ticket purchases. It’s generally the next most expensive item after buying a property. Since CMH Honda the Glen has amazing specials weekly, we’ll assist you in making the right choice.
Decide on a price range
It goes without saying that, especially in today’s economy, everyone is focused on affordability. This of course means different things to different people. It could be the first-time buyer looking for efficiency and economy. The person who is upgrading to a newer version of the same – or something completely different – in the mid-range. Or someone indulging in a high-end executive saloon or sports car.
Find out what’s available
There’s lots of information around to help guide your choice. Don’t just ask your family or friends. Dip into car magazines, pick-up brand brochures in your price range. Chat to experts at our dealership. And check out some auto surveys to get an idea of what other customers think.
Choose a car for your needs
There’s something for everyone. Singles, families, off-roaders, business-builders, thrill-seekers, green campaigners, adventure-lovers. Wrapped up in an equally long list of offerings – from sedan to crossover to sports cars, hybrid to hydrogen to electric green cars, to light commercials, sports utility-vehicles and multi-purpose vehicles.
Here’s a few from our stable. For those just starting out, you’re probably looking for something small but with a bit of attitude. The Honda Brio’s a nice little run-around with lots of street cred. If you want to be part of South Africa’s in-crowd, then the crossover definitely makes the cut. We’re proud to say we pioneered the genre with the Honda CR-V. Combining the best features of a passenger car and SUV, their versatility has resulted in the rise of the crossover the world over.
Scrutinise the after sales value-add
While you’re shopping around for your new car purchase, make sure you check out the aftersales service. With so much competition, car brands are enhancing their warranty (Vehicles from February 2016 boosting ta Warranty of 5 Year / 200 000km plan) and motor plan offering. Our company’s goes beyond that with many extras, especially for emergency situations.
Whatever you buy, make sure you know you’ll have fun driving it. After all it’s going to be your partner for a while. If you felt that instant connection on your test drive, I’d say you’re well suited.
