The Rules of Car Buying for Beginners

Buying a new or used car can be an overwhelming experience, especially if this is your first time. We at Nissan of Clinton want to make the experience as stress-free as possible for you, so we have come up with a few rules of car buying that should help the process along.

  1. Do your research. We are always happy to equip you with all the information we possibly can about the vehicles on our lot, but we know that you will have more peace of mind if you get your research from an independent third party like or and then let us wow you with a test drive in an amazing vehicle.
  2. Be realistic about your budget. If you have spent time doing the math ahead of time, you’ll know what you’re comfortable spending. You don’t have to tell us the top of your budget, but be firm about it with yourself when making your selection. We also offer a wide variety of quality Nissan certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicles, which are gently used vehicles with many new car perks. Don’t forget to factor insurance into your monthly payments as well; secure a quote before walking in.
  3. Take your time. This is a big decision. Other dealerships may rush you to an answer, but we understand that there is a lot to consider. We’re happy to help you talk through your decision!

We’re here to make your car-buying experience as pain-free as possible. If you have any questions that we can help you with, do not hesitate to give us a call.rules of car buying
