Ready for a new car? Check out our top 5 benefits of buying a car from a dealership
There are plenty of ways to buy a new car but none as good as getting a new car straight from the dealer.
There are heaps of benefits that come with buying from the dealer, all providing value directly back to you, the customer.
We’ve chosen our top 5 benefits of buying a car from a dealership.
Check them out below.
A massive benefit of purchasing from a dealer is the warranty that usually comes with a new car purchase. A warranty ensures that you if there are any defective parts within the limits of the warranty it won’t be at your cost.
Most new Hondas come with a 5 Year Unlimited Kilometre Warranty, which means that no matter how far you drive, you’re covered for up to 5 years.*
2. Test Drives
When you purchase through a dealer you have the ability to test drive the vehicle.
Test driving a car lets you get a feel for how the car drives, determine if it’s a comfortable fit and most importantly, if there are any obvious mechanical issues with the vehicle.
While test driving a car via a private sale is still an option, it is up to the discretion of the seller. When you take a test drive through a Honda dealer, you have the option to schedule your test drive for when it suits you best.
3. Trade-In Available
Another added benefit to purchasing from a dealer is the potential to trade-in your current car. Trading in is a more efficient and quicker way to dispose of your current car.
If you’re interested in trading in your current car, speak to your local Honda dealership and organise a car valuation today.
Keep in mind the trade-in value of your current car is dependant on the current condition of the car, the make, model and year, and some dealers may refuse to trade it in. Speak to your Honda dealer for further information.
4. An Established Reputation
If you do decide to purchase a car privately through an online marketplace or something similar, there is a risk of being lied to or taken advantage of. You don’t know if the vehicle’s condition or maintenance history is as accurate as the seller would have you believe.
There are ways to check this such as having your mechanic inspect the car but there is still that level of doubt. When you purchase from a dealer such as one of the many Honda dealerships throughout Australia, you’re purchasing from an established and trusted brand with measures in place to avoid you being taken advantage of.
5. Financing Solutions
Dealerships often offer financing options when you purchase a new vehicle. Honda offers our very own Honda Financing Solutions.
