Choosing your first car is a huge decision and, in many cases, it can be quite confusing if you don’t know where to start. The best thing you can do to familiarize yourself with the process by visiting our team of local Jeep® dealers, asking questions, and browsing various models to discover what fits your style best.

Our expert team at Shaver Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM and FIAT has created this short guide to inform you of the basics of car buying.

Before Visiting Our Dealership

To start preparing yourself for your first big car purchase, you’ll want to visit our online inventory and start looking for models that fit your lifestyle. Next, you’ll want to create a budget for yourself that represents around 10-20 percent of your monthly income. There are many unexpected costs that can arise when owning a car, so be sure to put aside money for repairs and new parts.

We have a variety of different makes and models at our dealership ranging from the Jeep Cherokee to the Chrysler Pacifica hybrid, so be sure to do extensive research and consider all of your options. For example, families may want to choose a large SUV or crossover that focuses on safety and cargo space, while city drivers can take a look at our smaller sedans with sharp handling.
