Summer Smells Like New Cars

Warmer summer days can make the urge to buy a new car almost impossible to ignore. If you find yourself dreaming of that new car smell, here's the best advice to keep in mind: Buy the car you need, not the one you want.

Ask yourself:

  • Who will drive the car and how far?
  • How many people will ride in it?
  • How long do you expect to own it?

Your answers to these questions will help steer you in the right direction. Don't go into the process with your heart set on one specific make or model or you could spend extra money on a car that doesn't suit your needs.

Put CAP COM's years of car buying experience to work for you. Our car buying experts can review your deal to make sure you are getting the best offer. We can help you decide whether you're better off accepting a rebate offer or choosing an option that gives you a lower rate.

Get pre-approved and take advantage of pre-negotiated discounted prices available only to CAP COM Members through our preferred network of local dealers. With Car Buyers Express, you can search for and compare local vehicles online. Make sure you check out the Clearance Lot that is updated daily.
