Buying Your First Car with Bradshaw Mazda
We’re thrilled that you’re considering buying your first car with Bradshaw Mazda. We strive to make the process simple and enjoyable so that this monumental milestone becomes a positive memory in your life and the vehicle you purchase serves you well for years to come.
To help you prepare for buying your first vehicle, follow these tips:
Set a Realistic Budget
This is the most important step. If you’ve never made a car payment before, you need to find out what you can afford. This helps you narrow down vehicles when you’re shopping and ensures that you’ll make your payments on time. Consider all of your expenses and apply for pre-approval. You can also use our payment calculator to help in this process.
Consider Your Transportation Needs
If you commute a long way each day, you may want a more fuel efficient vehicle. If outdoor adventures are your thing, space and AWD may be what you’re looking for. Make a list of the needs that you have and the staff at Bradshaw Mazda can help you find a vehicle that meets them on our lot in Greenville.
Take Test Drive (or a Few)
Test drives are an important part of any buying process, but especially for first time buyers. Spend time in each vehicle you’re considering to figure out how you truly feel about it and how comfortable you are in it. You can bring things that you haul with you or friends and family members to get a feel for the whole experience. Our expert staff will be here to answer any questions you may have.
Trust Your Dealer
You need to work with a dealer you can trust when purchasing your first vehicle. Our highly trained sales staff has earned a credible reputation with their many years of service and commitment. Our goal is to make sure that each of our customers receives the quality service that we have made a commitment to deliver each day
