The Worst Car Buying Mistakes You Can Make

Besides a house, purchasing a car can be one of the biggest financial investments of your lifetime. If you take the time to do the proper research, the shopping process may take up to several months. Byers Volkswagen wants Columbus, OH drivers to make the right decision when purchasing a new vehicle, such as our 2017 Volkswagen Jetta. Here are some of the worst car buying mistakes you can make and how to avoid them.

Only Visiting One Dealership
While many dealers may lure you in with special discounts and test-driving incentives, it really does pay to shop around. Take your time and be sure to visit at least three different dealerships before committing to a purchase. This gives you the opportunity to ask a lot of questions, see what types of cars and prices are out there, and compare different vehicles. And after you've seen what the competitors have to offer, come to Byers Volkswagen so we can provide you an even better deal on the car you love.

Jumping at One-Time Offers
You may get enticed by “unbeatable” offers. Don’t let these one-day deals prohibit you from getting the car of your dreams. Our dealers are always hosting special savings events, so check out a few to get the scoop on the best offers.

Ignoring Pre-Owned Vehicles
Many folks assume that used cars have a lot of problems and go straight for the new models. In actuality, our certified pre-owned cars undergo rigorous testing to ensure they are just as reliable and safe as the day they were made.

If you have any questions or concerns about the car buying process, Byers Volkswagen makes it easy to find the car that is right for you. Visit us today at 401 North Hamilton Road or call our sales department. We look forward to hearing from you!
