5 Questions You Should Always Ask at a Car Dealership When Buying a New Car.

Everything you need to know before you drive away.

Buying a new car is one of the biggest financial decisions you’re likely to make, not to mention one of the most exciting. And now that your current Hyundai is getting on in years, it might be time to consider a new one. Maybe you’re in the process of going from small car zip to family car function. Perhaps you’ve discovered the thrill of off-road adventures.

Whatever your motivation, you want to be certain you’re buying the right vehicle. Here are five questions you should always ask the dealership before you drive away.

1. IS THIS THE BEST CAR FOR ME?

Our dealers will take on board your lifestyle needs, family size and budget, then make an educated recommendation. With Hyundai, our diverse car range covers everything from small, economical city cars to big, robust SUVs for large families and even larger hills. So make sure you’re very clear on your requirements and preferences. Our experienced dealers will then steer you in the right direction.

2. HOW COSTLY IS MAINTENANCE?

Of course, parts and maintenance vary from car to car and you need to be sure you can not only buy the car, but afford the ongoing upkeep costs. Servicing your new car through a Hyundai dealership gives you complete peace of mind. Why? Because we’re upfront and transparent about our servicing charges. You’ll know exactly what you can expect to pay, see details about our Lifetime service plan here. You can even pay for your serving upfront, click here to see more about our pre-paid service plans.

3. WHAT SAFETY FEATURES DOES THE CAR HAVE?

A good car is a safe car and some of the new safety technology available in most Hyundai models is very reassuring indeed. Rear-view cameras so you can see everything behind you before you reverse, be it a child or a family pet. Safety assist to temporarily lock all doors if a car or bike is passing close by. Blind spot detection, automatic emergency braking, smart cruise control; the list goes on. Click here to read more about Hyundai's latest safety features.

4. WHAT DOES THE HYUNDAI WARRANTY INCLUDE?

While a comprehensive parts and labour warranty applies to all new Hyundai vehicles, make sure you fully understand what’s covered before you buy the car. For one, this ensures there is no head scratching down the road. Just as importantly, it will help you budget for any potential repair costs in the event of a mishap.

5.  WHAT EXTRAS ARE AVAILABLE?

Extras, extras – ask all about them! Would you like roof racks or roo bars on your new Hyundai? While roo bars might look a little silly on a Hyundai Elantra zooming around the city, they’ll give a Tucson or Santa Fe SUV some extra toughness in more ways than one. You’ll only buy this new car once, so make sure it’s fitted with everything you want before you drive it home.
