Let us help steer you to the right auto for your graduate!

Graduation season is almost here! If you’re the lucky parent of a high school or college graduate this year let us be the first to say congratulations for all of your hard work! Getting kids through their education is a huge milestone. While they are overwhelmed with excitement about all the places they’ll go, we know you are thinking about getting them there safely! Here are some guidelines to help you on the journey!

New or Pre-Owned?

The first consideration when shopping for a vehicle is whether to buy new or used. Here are a few points to think over before you get started.

The Benefits of Buying New

  • Flexible payment opportunities
  • Good warranty options
  • Ease of purchase
  • Newest technology and safety features

The Benefits of Buying Pre-Owned

  • Overall lower cost
  • Better return on your investment
  • Less depreciation
  • More affordable insurance

What Models Are Best For Your Grad?

Arguably the most important attributes to consider are safety, dependability, and economy.

Some vehicle models have a reputation for exhibiting a balance of these essential qualities, have stayed relevant year after year, and have a long life cycle to boot. There are so many quality selections available to choose from these days! You may be interested in a more eco-friendly option, or perhaps you feel more comfortable with your Graduate in an SUV. Either way, the research can be daunting! Here are a few credible lists to get your feet wet.

How to Buy Pre-Owned?

With today's technology, buying used has never been easier. If you’re leaning towards a pre-owned auto you can check the safety rating by year at J.D. Power. We know that buying pre-owned vehicles can seem risky – that's why we have created a free six-part video series to help you make well-informed choices. These videos from the Driving Line’s “Buying Pre-Owned Vehicles” series will help you feel confident every step of the way!
