Preparation and forethought is the key to finding the perfect new Volkswagen. But, before you visit Falcone’s Volkswagen dealership in Indianapolis, be sure that you are familiar with all of the ways that you can prepare for a successful new-car shopping experience. Below you’ll find three ways to have the best Indianapolis car buying experience at Falcone Automotive:
Be Clear About What You Want and Need in a Car
You simply can’t find a 2013 Volkswagen that is not both attractive and versatile—and this can make it seem tough to choose the best VW model for you. To narrow down your choices, focus on what you really need, and then consider the features you want. If you’re shopping for a family car, you’ll want to consider interior room, cargo space, and safety. If you need a larger car but you want to make sure that you are getting optimal fuel efficiency, then invest in a Volkswagen crossover, a wagon, or an optional VW Clean Diesel engine.
Prepare For the Test Drive
The more you know about successful test driving, the better equipped you will be to find the right Volkswagen for you. You will want to bring a checklist with you to make sure that you evaluate each car that you test drive in an objective manner. It may also be a good idea to pull up the dealership you are visiting on a map and see which roads you will want to drive on. Aim for variation in the road conditions, because this will give you a better the feeling for each Volkswagen’s visibility, as well as its ability to handle, brake, and keep you comfortable.
Know Your Financing Options
It’s not necessary to finance your Volkswagen at the dealership, and in fact you may get a better deal elsewhere. Shop around for different car loans offered by banks and credit unions in the Indianapolis area before you visit the dealership, that way you’ll be prepared and know which option is best for you. Furthermore, consider shortening your loan term or providing a larger down payment if you can, as this will reduce the amount of interest you will pay for your car loan in the long run.
