Is Now a Good Time to Buy a New Car?

New vehicles cost more. If you’re shopping for a discounted car, truck, or SUV, a new vehicle may not be the best choice for you. But your situation may be better suited for a new vehicle based on your situation. 

For example, if you’re driving an old clunker around Morgantown that constantly requires more money to repair, it might have outlived its usefulness. Buying a new vehicle, even for less of a discount, can be a smart financial decision when you consider if a monthly payment is less than your repair bills. Consider talking to our finance teamto discuss your options. If a new vehicle is more cost-effective than your used car, yes is the right answer to, “Is now a good time to buy a new car?”
