Top Car Shopping Tips | Fort Wayne, IN

You don't buy a new car very often, so even experienced shoppers will benefit from reading these helpful car-shopping tips as a refresher for getting the best results.

Ask Questions on Weekdays

Naturally, most people will use their open weekends to visit dealerships and to do their car shopping, so if you intend to take your time checking out models and asking many questions, do during a less-busy weekday instead of a weekend. The dealership will be less crowded and it will probably be easier to get all of your questions answered without being rushed.

Shop at the Right Time of Year


There are a few times during the year when you are more likely to find the best deals. One such occasion is at the end of a model year, when dealerships like the Tom Kelley family are trying to sell their older models to make room for the upcoming model year. You may also be able to get excellent deals around Black Friday and at the end of the calendar year. 

Listen to Dealership Suggestions


The team at Tom Kelley is going to be aware of all of the compelling incentives and special deals going on, so it pays to take their suggestions seriously. They may be able to listen to your wants and needs to help you get more for your money by guiding you in the right direction. 

Test Drive

Test-driving is always important, whether you are buying new or used. The process gives you the opportunity to get a feel for the car and how it will perform in your hands. If you're shopping for a family car, try to bring your family along for the test drive as well, so you can make sure it's a comfortable option for each person who will regularly use the vehicle.

The Tom Kelley dealerships invite you to visit us for any test drive or questions you have on your next car.
