If you’re searching for the new Mercedes-Benz vehicle that’s right for your Kettering commute and everyday needs, you may be wondering when to buy a new car. Whether you’re a new shopper and not sure where to begin or have had bad experiences at other dealerships, the team at Mercedes-Benz of Centerville will help make your experience better as we help you find your next new car or SUV.

When to Buy a New Car

This is a major financial decision, so it’s best to start with knowing if it’s the right time to get a new car. Below are ways to know you’re ready to take that leap:

  1. You’re paying for expensive repairs often that’s impacting both your wallet and your time. At some point, you’re going to pay more for repairs in a year than you would for a new car.
  2. You don’t feel safe driving your car. The last thing you want is to get in an accident, so if you’re worried about your car’s safety, it’s time to get a new one.
  3. You were previously single when you got the other car. Now you’re married with a kid on the way, and it may be time to consider upgrading to a small SUV that offers advanced safety technologies. 
  4. Is your car failing emissions tests? Getting it up to snuff can be costly, and opting for a newer model may save you money in the long run.
