How to pick a vehicle that’s right for you

1. Research

Consider things such as make and model to find a car that suits your needs. Also think about other things like size, fuel efficiency and the safety features.

2. Find your car

You can do this by visiting dealerships, browsing online marketplaces or considering private sellers. 

3. Inspection

Arrange for a car inspection with the seller. Inspect the car or have a trusted mechanic perform a pre-purchase inspection. Look for any signs of damage or mechanical issues. You can even order a vehicle history report online.

4. Financing

Decide how you’ll pay for the car. Common methods include using a personal loan, leasing the car, cash or a combination of these. If you’re looking to take out a loan, you can do so by applying online.

Apply online

5. Negotiate price

Discuss the best price you can purchase the car you’re interested in. Make sure to compare prices across various sellers, and be prepared to walk away if the price is outside your budget.

6. Purchase

Once you’ve decided which car you’d like, arrange for the purchase of the vehicle. Ensure you’re comfortable with the terms of the sale, whether you’re buying from a dealership, online marketplace or private seller.

7. Insurance and registration

Ensure you car is adequately insured prior to driving away in your new car. Complete any transfer of ownership forms and visit your local vehicle authority to have the vehicle registered under your name.
