5 Tips for Buying a New Mazda in Alexandria

Last updated 5 years ago

Locating the right new Mazda for your specific needs can be an involved ordeal. To make sure that you make the most out of the process of shopping for a new Mazda, consider the following new car buying tips.

Consider Fuel Economy and Vehicle Size

To find the right Mazda for you, you will have to line up your needs with a car in Mazda’s 2013 lineup. First off, you should think about size and fuel economy. To answer this question, think about how much passenger space and interior space you need. If you need room for your family and you don’t need to tow a heavy load on a regular basis, you could save a lot of money on fuel by going with a Mazda crossover like the five-passenger CX-5 rather than a larger SUV.

Think About Certified Pre-Owned

If you have only ever considered new cars before, you may want to think about going with a certified pre-owned Mazda. These cars are carefully inspected and reconditioned by Mazda mechanics before being certified, and come with a seven-year/100,000-mile warranty for the powertrain, in effect from the new-car purchase date, and a 12-month/12,000-mile limited warranty that covers the other components.

Look at the Feature Content

How important to you is a navigation system, optional safety features, and leather seating? You can save thousands of dollars by going with a base-model Mazda without all of the extra luxury features. But if you have a family, having high-tech safety features could give you an extra peace of mind that has no replacement.

Take a Test Drive

The last and arguably most important part of finding the right Mazda for you is the test drive. To make the most out of your test drive, make a list of things that you don’t like about your current car and bring it with you to the dealership. Then, when you’re behind the wheel of several new Mazdas, you can take a see how the right Mazda is better for you.

Get to Know the Dealership

Find a reputable dealer and read reviews about them online. It’s important to find a dealership that not only provides all of the services you need, but one that is also dependable and in good standing with your community.
