Over the last year I have done a lot of growing up. I’ve learned a lot of new things and I’ve experienced a lot of firsts. From getting and moving into my first apartment, learning how to appreciate my own space and buying my very first car without a man’s help. Life doesn’t come with an instruction manual, but fortunately we live in an age where all the help and advice we could ever need is at the tip of our fingers. You just have to know where to look.
The entire idea of buying a new car by myself was very intimidating and honestly, overwhelming. Should I buy new? Used? From a super dealership or a family owned lot? I didn’t even know where to start. Fortunately Cars.com is a great jumping off point. It helps to have a general idea of what you’re looking for and go from there. At Cars.com you will find a vast amount of information that not only helps you sort through all of the accolades about a particular car, but you’ll get honest feedback if there are drawbacks to a particular vehicle in their videos and reviews section.
I went into the whole process with a confidence I definitely didn’t have before. I was armed with the knowledge of what similar vehicles were selling for and walked away with my brand-new-to-me Nissan Versa! I’ve loved it since day one! Don’t forget, when you’re researching cars online, you should also look into insuring yourself. For information on this and roadside assistance, see here – https://www.insurancequotes.com/auto/auto-insurance-roadside-assistance. You should also consider looking into securing your car by perhaps looking to invest in a dash cam, a great website I found was BlackBoxMyCar where they offer plenty of great dash cams for your specific needs.
It’s worth a mention that not only does Cars.com care about providing quality information, they really do care about your family’s safety. Now, all of my kiddos are out of car seats, but when they were little it was a bit nerve wracking to get them properly installed and even then, are you ever 100% sure they are? Click here to see how Cars.com helps you make sure your car seats are installed correctly.
I appreciate all of the lessons I’ve learned over the last year and I’m truly thankful that with all of the resources available, you’re never really alone.
