The groundhog might have said six more weeks of winter, and though we just had our “Snowmageddon 2015,” spring is right around the corner. Here at Kia Dealers NJ, we are getting ready to open up a new facility for the Burlington Kia Store and are starting our spring cleaning process, just like most of you are. Spring is a great time to buy a new car, especially at our New Jersey Kia dealership. If you are looking for a new car, here are eight reasons you should buy a Kia this spring.
1. Easier to get the model you want.
The new 2016 models will start rolling onto our lots in late summer, and early fall. If there is a 2015 that you are in love with, spring is the perfect time to buy one, before they start to be pushed out by newer models. Each model year brings slight changes to the style, color options, and technology available in our Kia vehicles, so if you want a 2015 model, spring is the perfect time to buy.
2. You’ll have your tax refund in hand.
Having a little bit of extra cash in the bank can make it easier to get the vehicle that you want. Once you find the car that you love, you won’t have to worry about whether or not you can make the down payment. Your tax refund may be more than enough to cover that down payment, or at least offset it. And because we have great financing options, after-tax season is a great time to make a car purchase.
3. A Kia makes a great graduation present.
With financing options and individualized payment plans, buying a Kia vehicle is now more affordable than ever. Many parents at least want to help their graduate buy a car, as a reward for completing either high school, university, or a post graduate degree. A car can help that child move into the next stage of his or her life, and a Kia is a great investment in that future. Kia offers the best warranties and protection programs out of any other manufacturer, and all of the models are built to last. It’s the most worry-free car purchase you can make. You’ll be secure knowing that even if something does go wrong, that car is covered.
4. Shopping early has its advantages.
Most people save their car buying for the summer or fall, as those new models hit the lot. While this is great if you want one of those new models, shopping early in the year does have its advantages. Kia vehicles are loaded with new technology ever year, but if you’re not interested in having a touch screen navigation system in your vehicle, shopping early in the year will mean being able to find a more basic model, before all of the older models are cleared off the lots to make room for the newer ones.
5. More attention from our salespeople.
Because more people shop during the summer and fall months, for those who hate shopping on a crowded lot or have lots of questions and need lots of help when picking a Kia, shopping during the spring definitely has its benefits. Fewer people on the lot means less competition for you—you don’t have to worry about that other couple who’s looking at the same Optima. While we always try to give each person our undivided attention, with fewer shoppers, the entire buying process will be faster and more convenient for you during the summer.
6. Break in the car before winter.
One of the disadvantages of buying a car in winter is having to spend those first months driving in the year’s most dangerous conditions. When you buy in spring, you have almost a full year before any snow falls, which gives you plenty of time to learn your Kia’s quirks and get used to how your particular model behaves, before you have to deal with any real inclement weather.
7. Great time to buy used.
The winter usually brings an influx of used vehicles onto our lot, as individuals trade in their old cars to offset the cost of buying a new car for the Christmas season. That means, come spring, our used showroom will be ripe for the picking. Especially when you shop at our New Jersey Kia dealership, you’ll find high-quality used vehicles—all year long, yes, but especially in the spring. If you want to buy a new car, but don’t want a “new” car, spring is great for shopping used.
8. Less expensive.
If you buy a car at the beginning of winter, you will also usually have to buy a set of snow tires and make sure that your vehicle is fully outfitted for the onset of winter—which can be expensive. On the other hand, if you buy during the spring, you usually don’t have to buy any extra accessories, until the end of the year. You’ll already have brand new windshield wipers (because the car is brand new) and you won’t need snow tires for at least eight months.
Buying a car is a big decision, whether you can pay cash, or whether you choose our most flexible payment plans. Kia endeavors to make the decision as easy as possible, by making sure that their cars have the guarantees and warranties to cover just about everything. Spring should be a time of new things and new experiences; buying a Kia is a great way to gain mobility in your life, without the worry that usually comes along with car buying.
