How to Prep for Buying a New Car from Our Dodge Dealership 

Are you thinking about visiting our Dodge dealership to buy a new vehicle? While we’re eager to show you around our showroom, there are a few things we suggest you do to prepare for your upcoming transaction. These few steps help to remove much of the stress and uncertainty of the new car buying process. 


Review Your Credit Report 

The first thing you should do to get ready is review your credit report for any inaccuracies so you can correct them. It can take weeks for the corrections to improve your credit score, so don’t wait until the last minute to look your credit report over. 

Get Pre-Approved for an Auto Loan 

Once your credit report is up to date, you should apply for Dodge financing through our Dodge finance center. Getting pre-approved for a car loan lets you know exactly how much you can spend on a new automobile. 

Create a Budget 

It’s important to remember that you don’t have to borrow all the money you’re pre-approved for. Creating a car-buying budget will help you determine how much you need to borrow and the amount you can afford to pay toward a monthly car payment. If you need assistance with creating a budget, the team at Helfman Dodge Chrysler Jeep® RAM FIAT will be happy to lend a hand. 

Look for Incentives 

Car dealers often have rotating incentives that can help drivers save money on the vehicles they want to get. We invite you to look through our finance offers to see if you’re eligible for any of them or check out our Dodge lease offers to see if they fit you better. Being familiar with our current offers may prove to be helpful when it’s time to negotiate the final price of the automobile you want to purchase. 

Go for a Test Drive 

Before you make an offer on a new vehicle, you should take the car for a test drive. Even when a vehicle seems perfect on paper, you can only tell if it’s the car for you by taking it for a road test.
