Auto Financing for First Time Buyers

Alfa Romeo of Larchmont Wants to Help Make This a Fun Time

Buying your first car is an exciting time, but you must remember that it is also a significant responsibility that requires decisions you may never have had to tackle before. It's not just about picking "the perfect car." It's about finding a budget, finding the right car, and, most importantly, evaluating your financing options. All these could take you into unfamiliar territory. The truth is that affording a car is one of the biggest challenges a first-time car buyer faces.

Buying vs Leasing

As a first-time buyer, the thing to keep in mind is that this is a commitment. You cannot just give the car back when you no longer want it. If you lease a vehicle, the lease's length is usually shorter than if you were to finance it, and the payment is typically lower. However, if you drive a lot, a lease may not be the best choice for you as you get penalized for going over the set number of miles.

Why You Should finance Through a Dealership

Financing your vehicle purchase through the dealer is similar to going through a bank, except for one major factor. The dealer does all the work for you. There is no back and forth between you, the bank, and the dealership. Once you have chosen your vehicle, the dealer will have you fill out a credit application, which they'll submit to multiple lenders. This allows you to compare rates and terms to choose the best option for you.

Why Buy from Alfa Romeo Larchmont

Here at Alfa Romeo Larchmont, we take our time to get to know each driver we meet and learn their driving style, desires, and maintenance needs. We sell new Alfa Romeo and offer a wide selection of used and certified pre-owned vehicles of all makes and models. Our sales floor is friendly and free from pressure. We encourage our customers to come in and look around.

Consider Buying Used

As you set out on your journey of purchasing your first car, consider buying a pre-owned one. Your heart may be set on that new car smell, but you may have second thoughts when you find out just how much that new-car smell will cost you. The average monthly payment for a new car is $161 higher than the average monthly payment on a used car. Plus, you can get that high-end car for the budget car price. If your augment is that used vehicles do not have warranties well, you should look into a certified pre-owned vehicle. These used cars have undergone thorough inspections and reconditioning; they often come with limited warranties and other extras.
