5 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Leasing or Buying from Sheridan Nissan

October 31st, 2018 by

The decision to buy or lease a new car is substantial in terms of the money you will invest in the car. You’ll need to ask yourself various questions about the type of car you’d like and what you’re willing to spend. At Sheridan Nissan, there a few questions we find imperative you ask yourself as you begin your Nissan search.

What is my budget?

Your monthly budget is the first thing to consider. You’ll want to ask yourself what your overall budget is, and what you want to pay each month for your car payment. What monthly expenses do you expend currently? Remember to consider maintenance costs, fuel prices and insurance in conjunction to what you’ll spend on a new Nissan at Sheridan Nissan.

If you’d like a lower monthly payment and are not looking to own, consider a lease.

What are my wants and needs?

Determine what aspects you absolutely need in your new Nissan. Do you have a large family and need that third row? Consider a Nissan Armada and Nissan Pathfinder. Are you looking for a comfortable sedan with great gas mileage? Consider the Nissan Altima or Nissan Maxima. You may need the ability to tow for work purposes. Once you determine your needs, then you can decide the extras you want to make your driving experience more enjoyable, like heated seats or a DVD player in the headrests. Taking time to list out your needs and wants will help narrow down your car search.

How often will I drive the car?

The more often you drive your car, say for a longer commute or frequent weekend getaways, you may want to consider a car with excellent fuel economy. If you drive less often, you may be able to get good mileage out of a truck or SUV. Today’s SUV’s have been engineered to perform better in terms of fuel economy, so if you find you’d like Nissan Rogue, Nissan Murano or Nissan Kicks and have a shorter commute, one of these crossover SUVs might be the most suitable for your driving needs.

What fees are included in my finance plan?

You’ll see the price of the car on the window, but there are other fees to consider when buying a car, and you should be aware and anticipate fees like taxes, documentation fees and registration fees. Speak with a dealer at Sheridan Nissan to ensure you get the best deal when you buy from us!

What is my credit score?

Your credit score will ultimately affect how much you pay for the car when all is said and done. Your credit score will determine your monthly interest rate. The better your credit score, the lower interest rate you can negotiate. Talk to a trusted financial advisor to determine ways you can increase your credit score.

Now that you have answered these five questions, visit Sheridan Nissan to test drive the Nissan sedan, SUV or truck you have your eyes on. Our sales staff will happily answer each question you may have to ensure you drive home in the dream car that fits both your needs and wants.
