Benefits of Buying New over Buying Used

Buying a New Car New Jersey

It’s very tempting to buy a used car. We have a great used lot that has lots of excellent vehicles on it—some are Kia vehicles, others aren’t. There’s no doubt that in many situations, the right thing to do is to buy the used the car. However, in the long run, there are plenty of reasons to opt for a new vehicle, rather than to pay nearly the same price for a car that has already been driven by someone else. Here are just some of the benefits of buying a new car over a used car:

No Shady History

While there are websites that both you and your dealership can use to check on a used car’s history, those websites will only show you the information that has been reported on that VIN. There are many situations in which accidents and repairs are not reported on that vehicle, meaning that neither you nor your dealership will know about them. While this is usually not a huge a problem (it’s relatively rare that a serious problem does not get reported one way or another), it is possible for a used to car to come with a shady history.

One of my best friends posted of Facebook just last week about how excited she was for the used Toyota Corolla she’d just purchased. The next day, she was posting about how she had to turn the car over to the police and get her money back because they’d discovered the car had been stolen and the VIN changed. There is a much smaller chance of that happening when you buy new than when you buy used.

Longer Life

If a car only has twenty years of to live (this is a generalization, many cars, when properly maintained, will run perfectly for far longer than twenty years), and you buy a five-year-old used car, you may only have fifteen years with that car. However, if you bought a new car, you’d have the full twenty years. While the lower price may sometimes justify this trade-off, because you can never really know everything that happened to or was done to that car while it was owned by someone else, in general, the new car is the more cost-effective investment.

Better Features

Even in just the last two years, car technology has advanced so quickly that the difference between a Kia you could buy in 2013 and a Kia you can buy on our lot today is staggering. There are cars with parking assist, with backup cameras, cars that will actually break for you or avoid danger, that will warn you when you’re leaving a lane, that have advanced entertainment features, etc., etc. Many of these features were available on a car two years ago, but you would have had to pay through the nose for them.

Today, many of the features that were considered luxury are now the standard. This means that if you buy a car that is two years old, you probably will be lacking most of the newer features. For some, this may be a bonus. Maybe you don’t want a touch-screen infotainment system. If you do, however, you’ll still have to pay the higher prices to get the higher trim model on the used lot. Or, you could just buy the new car that has all of those features standard.

Reliability

Today’s cars are also more reliable than they were even five years ago. You have far higher likelihood of having to deal with a serious car issue sooner when you buy used than when you buy new. New cars are unlikely to give you any trouble at all in their first four years, and only minor issues after that, if you keep them well-maintained. Older cars are more prone to breaking down, draining batteries, having engine issues, etc. It’s a difference in how cars are made and in how much that car has been used before it gets to you.

Long Term Savings vs. Upfront Savings

The most basic difference between a new car and a used car is this: long term savings or upfront savings. When you buy a used car, you do get a cheaper initial cost. You will probably also spend more on repairs, gas, insurance, maintenance, etc. over the time that you own that car. Gas mileage and reliability both start to drop off as the car ages, so if you buy an older car, you are already much closer to that drop-off date than if you buy a new car.

On the other hand, new cars cost more initially, but they will also save you money on insurance, gas, and maintenance, especially in the first five years. Because you are the one and only owner of that car, you have control over what kind of care it gets, which can seriously elongate the vehicle’s life. If you buy a car that has already been through someone else’s hands, you have no control over what has already been done to that car.

If you’re set on buying a used car, either to save money or simply because you would prefer an order car without all of the bells and whistles, make sure to shop around, test drive, and learn about the individual and model histories of the cars you are thinking about purchasing. If you’re not sure which is a better option for you, come into our Kia dealership and let us discuss the costs and benefits of each for your specific situation.

Graduating? Why Now Is the Perfect Time to Buy a Kia and How to Do It

2015 Forte Koup

Graduating from college is a huge achievement! Even if you are going to go on and get a higher degree, this is the beginning of the rest of your life—real adulthood! Don’t let that scare you, adulthood is just as fun as college, and there are fewer rules. Right after graduating from college, buying a car is one of the biggest “adult” things that you can do.

Many graduates will put this off until they are much older, but the truth is that right now, when you are just starting your career and establishing your work habits, is the best time to buy a car, especially from a manufacturer like Kia that has the best warranties on the market and the best cars at the most reasonable prices. Here’s why now is the perfect time to buy a Kia and how to do it.

Why Now?

Why not now? Buying a car is intimidating. The prices listed online are high compared to any other purchase you’ve had to make—but remember, you are not paying the full price of the car outright. You are going to be making installment payments. Because you have to get a loan (the dealership will usually arrange one for you) in order to buy a car, you will be building credit, which is extremely important for a young person who is going to be trying to buy a house, apply for other loans, or obtain lines of credit in the near future.

Now is perfect time because right now is when you are starting the second stage of your life. You are no longer a student, you are now part of the workforce. Having your own car can be an asset as a busy professional. You are not confined to the schedules of public transportation and having your own mode of transportation makes it possible for you to run errands, go grab lunch, and even carpool with your coworkers.

Kia offers great financing plans on reasonable priced vehicles. Especially if you are interested in a subcompact, you can find great options like the Kia Rio, that are extremely inexpensive and enable you to get on the road quickly and affordably—especially because great gas mileage comes along with smaller, lighter vehicles. Even if you do want a larger vehicle, Kia is still the best place to find the most cost-effective vehicles on the market.

How to Buy a New Car for the First Time

You might have accompanied parents on car buying trips in the past, and they might be accompanying you on your first car buying trip. It’s important to remember that every dealership is different and not every Kia dealership in NJ is going to have the same stock on their lot. Doing a little bit of research beforehand can help you find a dealership that either has exactly what you want or is willing to order it from another lot. Here are some tips to help you find the right car:

1. Think about what you will be using your car for. If you are just going to be commuting from home to work and running small errands around town, you will probably want a subcompact or a sedan. These can be as good for carpooling as they are for running errands and they have the best gas mileage out of all gas vehicles. However, if you are planning on needing to drive around more than three other people or are looking for a car that will take you on adventures, as well as to and from work, a crossover or SUV might be more ideal for your needs. Think about what your car will be used for and then carefully consider which vehicle will meet those needs.

2. Research warranties. As a young professional, the last thing you want to be worrying about is maintenance for your vehicle. That’s why Kia is a great option, no matter what kind of vehicle you decide you need. Kia has some of the best warranties on the market. This, paired with the low-maintenance promise of their vehicles, makes it easy and inexpensive to take care of your vehicle. While warranties won’t cover all repairs, whatever the warranty doesn’t cover, a good insurance policy should cover.

3. Look at the used lot, too. While buying a new car is usually the most popular choice for most new buyers, looking at the used lot may allow you to find a high quality car, in a recent model year, at a much lower price than you would have to pay for a new vehicle. When looking into buying a used car, it is extremely important to test drive the vehicle and research that exactly vehicle’s history. While not all people sell their cars back to the dealership because they have an issue, some people do, and you do not want to pick up a used car that will start causing you problems in a few months.

4. Go on lots of test drives. When you come to our New Jersey Kia dealership, we encourage our buyers to test drive any and all cars before they make any final decisions. We may even encourage you to test drive a model you had not considered, simply so you can compare it to the other models. Test driving will allow you to get a feel for the car and find the one that has the features that you like best.

Buying a car as a new graduate doesn’t have to be difficult. Follow these tips and you’ll be sure to find the ideal vehicle for you!

Why Spring Is the Perfect Time to Buy a Kia

Kia K900 NJ Kia Dealer

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.

Image

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.

Why Coming to the Dealership is Better than Shopping for Your Kia Online

Best Restaurants in NJ

Most people start their car buying process online, looking at the Kia website in order to find their new car. While the internet is a great place to start, especially if you want to narrow down the list of cars you want to see to ones in your price range and that have the features that you want, coming to the Kia dealership is always the best way to really get a good idea of which Kia is right for you. Here’s why:

1. Test drives

Test driving is really the only way you can be sure you’ve found the right car for you. Looking at the car online is one thing, but you won’t really know how it looks and feels until you’re actually sitting in the car. You may love how a car looks, but if you’re not a fan of how it drives, it’s not the right car for you. And the only way you can really make this determination is by driving it. Additionally, the models on the Kia website are not always the same models that we have on the lot. Each car on our lot comes with unique features and trims.

2. In-person consultations

One of the biggest benefits of coming into our dealership is talking to one of our staff. While you might have a good idea in your head about what kind of Kia you want, our salesmen are trained to listen to what you want in a car and present the make and model that best fits your needs. On occasion, we’ll have someone come onto the floor who is sure that they want an SUV, but ends up walking away with a sedan. Because our staff have intimate knowledge of our cars, they’re more able than a website to help you find the exact right vehicle.

Image

3. Find cars in your price range

The price that’s listed on Kia’s website is rarely the price that you’ll find at the dealership. We often have our own sales and specials that can make finding the right car even more affordable. And you can’t haggle with a website. You can haggle with us (though we don’t think you will need to). We know that your goal is to find a great car that’s well within your budget, whether you’re looking to buy or lease. While both the main Kia website and our website can give you a good idea of what a vehicle might cost, only when you come to the dealership can we give you a firm number.

4. See what’s feasible

We’re lucky in New Jersey, to never be too far from the things that we need or want. In some places, the cars that they have on the lot are the only cars that the customers can choose from. If we don’t have the right car, in the right trim or in the right color, we will find it for you. We can usually find just about any color and trim and get it to our dealership in a couple of days.

5. More relevant information

While the website will give you plenty of great information about the gas mileage and the engine, when actually looking at cars, one of our staff can tell you about all the other features of that particular make and model. For example, if you want a car with a great stereo system or a quiet ride, actually seeing the car in person and talking to a salesman that really knows those cars is the only way to find one that really fits your criteria.

6. Fewer compromises

The Kia website can only show you a very narrow set of vehicles. In reality, the range of vehicles that come to our showroom and to our lot are diverse and are designed to appeal to a wide variety of buyers. This huge variety to choose from means you don’t have to compromise a great sound system for a quiet ride or more trunk space for a roomier cabin. While we do list all of our cars online, the only way to really see what we have in our showroom and on the lot is to visit us in person.

7. Pictures rarely do the car justice

Even if you’ve already honed in on the exact vehicle or vehicles you want to drive, coming to our Kia dealership can seal the deal. We love working both with customers who aren’t sure what they want and with those that know exactly what they want. If you’ve spent a little bit of time looking at the cars online, it’s still a good idea to come and sit in and test drive them. You won’t get to see all of the little features and quirks of a car until you’re talking with a knowledgeable salesman and physically sitting in the car.

8. Financing and payment plans

Again, there are online calculators that will help you estimate your monthly costs for a specific vehicle, but only when you’re ready to buy, sitting in our showroom can we tell you what your financing options and payment schedule could look like. There are many factors that go into your financing options and payment schedule, and discussing them in person is always the best policy, especially if you want to get a great price and a reasonable payment schedule.

Some people like to do as much car shopping online as they can before coming into our dealership. Others try to cut the dealership out altogether! We still believe that actually coming to our showroom is the best way to get the right car at the right price.

15 Tips To Make Your Used Kia Look New Again

Kia Forte Koup

When you first drive your New Kia off the lot, it is gleaming, both inside and out. It is perfectly clean. The first time you drive through a puddle, you can feel the dirt splattering on your beautiful exterior! And then your friend gets into the car and put his muddy shoes on your pristine floor! How annoying! Just driving around town means picking up a lot of dirt and dust—and if you’ve taken your Kia on a road trip, you know how dirty it can get.

Luckily, cleaning a used Kia does not have to be a chore. Like cleaning anything that you love, it can be fun to restore the interior and exterior to their former glory. We’ve got fifteen tips and tricks to make cleaning your car easier than ever.

1. Use scrub brushes for your floor pads. Unlike your house, it’s easy to take your car’s carpet out and scrub it clean. The best way to get any ground in dirt out of the low-pile carpet is to take a stiff scrub brush to it, with a little bit of carpet cleaner. Add some elbow grease into the equation and you’ll have a perfectly clean carpet in no time.

2. Combat musty air systems with bursts of compressed air. If you have had your Kia for a while and your air conditioning or heating smells musty when you turn it on, it’s likely full of dirt and dust. The best way to clean it out is to spray some compressed air into the intake, blowing the debris clear.

3. Don’t use acid on your tires. There are lots of cleaners formulated for tires that contain different kinds of acid. Acid that can eat away at your tires and shorten their lifespan. Just steer clear.

4. Hand washing is better than an automatic wash. You want to take care of your Kia. That means giving it the best possible baths. Most people will opt for the automatic wash—but you’re not most people. To make sure that your car’s exterior is meticulously clean, it’s best to wash by hand.

5. Wax on and off. Waxing your car isn’t just for special occasions. It’s to protect your car’s paint job. Regularly waxing your car is the best way to prevent rust spots and damage to your paint, even over years and years of driving.

6. Use a glass cleaner for glass. When it comes to really detailing your Kia, don’t opt for all-purpose cleaners. Pick a glass cleaner that is specifically designed for cleaning glass in cars. This means it will have fewer streaks and reduce any film that may build up.

7. Use a car interior cleaner for the interior. The same goes for cleaning the seats, console, and storage of your Kia—pick a cleaner that is made specifically for the interior of cars. You’ll get a better clean and you won’t have to worry about nasty fumes building up in your car once you’re done cleaning.

8. Don’t miss the details. For example, the tops of windows, that are hidden when the window is rolled all the way up, or the carpet underneath your seats, or vacuuming out the places that only you see, like the trunk.

9. Use a soap made especially for cars. It’s a big mistake to use soap that is formulated for dishes on your car’s paint. Sure, this soap is great for cutting road grime, but it’s also great at stripping away any wax that’s left on your car and eating away at your paint. Repeated use of this kind of soap means a serious deterioration in your car’s paint job. Stick to soap that is made for use on cars.

10. Start at the top and work down. When cleaning the interior of you cars, don’t start by vacuuming and soaping the carpets. Start by dusting off your dashboard and steering wheel. When you do start vacuuming, start at the top, so don’t have to back track as you dislodge dust and dirt from the upper parts of the car.

Image

11. Scrape off stickers with a razor blade or putty knife. If you have old parking or advertisement stickers on the windshield of your car, use a razor blade or putty knife to scrape them up. If they leave sticky residue behind, you can go back in with that razor blade or use a cleaning product specifically designed to get rid of goop.

12. Use a paintbrush to clean air vents and other small spots. There are lots of small places in your car that collect dust, starting with your radio, to the vents, to the arm rests. Use a paintbrush to sweep this dust off.

13. Use a screwdriver or pen wrapped in a cloth to clean narrow places and in grooves. There are also lots of nooks and crannies that hold crumbs and dirt and dust pretty well, even with a thorough vacuuming of your car. The best way to clean these spots is to wrap a flathead screwdriver or a pointy pen in a rag and run it along the crannies to pull out the gunk.

14. Clean off windshield wipers. Don’t neglect your windshield wipers. If they are covered in dirt, be sure to give them a thorough, but gentle washing so they are ready to go the next time you are caught in a rain or snow storm.

15. Pick a washing routine and stick to it. The best way to make sure that your car does not need extreme deep cleanings is to give it regular, spot cleanings. Pick a cleaning routine, whether it is every other week, once a month, or every two months, to give it a vacuuming, wash, and wax.

Used Car Dealers Camden NJ

Used Cars Camden  NJ

When it comes to purchasing a vehicle, most buyers come armed with a multitude of concerns. This is especially true when searching for a used car. We’ve all heard horror stories about the less-than-reputable used car lots who doll out lemons to unsuspecting buyers. No one wants to spend thousands of dollars on a pre-owned automobile only to discover they have to spend several thousand more in repairs.

Not all used car dealers in Camden, NJ are created equal. Unfortunately, the horror stories we hear about those infamous used car dealers exist for a reason: some companies care more about making money than they do about their customers. To ensure you’re getting the best vehicle for your money, you need to shop wisely.

We’ll complete any and all necessary repairs – and we won’t hide it from you. We’ll happily provide a service record so you’re well aware of the work we’ve completed before you make your purchase.

Credibility: Being a dealer for an internationally renowned brand certainly has its perks. For example, we’re able to provide top dollar for trades – and we can afford to be choosy. If we take a vehicle in on a trade, but it doesn’t meet our strict set of qualifications, we’re not going to sell it to our customers. We’ve got a great reputation in the region – and we’d like to keep it that way.

The bottom line is, if you’re in the market for a pre-owned vehicle, take time to consider your options. Keep in mind that, when it comes to used car dealers in Camden NJ, it’s all about confidence. Don’t be afraid to ask questions, and above all, make sure you’re working with a dealer that has your best interest at heart. After all, a vehicle is a very important investment.

5 Things to Consider when Buying Used

Used Kia Sorento Burlington

Anyone who is looking to buy a used car has already made one smart decision. Buying a used car is an economically prudent choice for plenty of reasons. It saves money right off the bat, usually costs less to insure than a new vehicle and offers more peace of mind as today’s used vehicles are better than ever. Let’s take a look at five things to consider when buying a used vehicle.

Determine a Price Range

Before heading out to a car dealership to check out the used inventory, you should establish a budget. This way you can focus your used car search on only the models that you can afford. Why bother inspecting and test driving used vehicles that are out of your price range? Doing so is a waste of your own time and effort as well as the dealer’s. So sit down well before you begin car shopping and determine what sort of down payment you can pay and figure out how much of a loan you are willing to take out (and can be approved for) by calculating a reasonable monthly payment. Then commit to staying within this pre-established price range.

An Extended Warranty

Consider whether an extended warranty plan makes sense for the used vehicle that you are thinking about purchasing. Most dealerships offer either an extended warranty or a service contract to cover several different types of services and repairs. If not, consider obtaining an extended service contract from a third party. The repairs are typically approved without a hassle and they can be performed at many different authorized dealerships. As long as the repairs are approved, you won’t have to pay anything unless your service contract or warranty has a deductible.

Buying from a Dealership

People in the market for a used vehicle should strongly consider shopping for the vehicle at local car dealerships. Auto dealers typically put used vehicles through a wide variety of intensive tests to guarantee that they are reliable and safe. This is not true of private parties who often want to unload a lemon with a slew of malfunctions. A car dealership is in business for the long run so it can’t afford to sell lemons that will jeopardize its reputation within the community. Plenty of the used vehicles sold at auto dealerships will be backed by respectable and lengthy warranties. Some might even still be covered under the original factory warranty if they are fairly young.

Take a Look Below

Before buying a used car, you should inspect its underbody. Ask the dealership to raise it up so that you can inspect the bottom of the vehicle for rust, corrosion and general damage. This is another reason to shop for a used vehicle at an auto dealership instead of going through a private party. Few private parties will go to the extent of lifting the vehicle into the air for your perusal. While the vehicle is raised, check out the wheel wells for rust and inspect the exhaust system for black spots. If you see any, it indicates that the system might have harmful leaks.

A Thorough Inspection

Aside from checking out the vehicle’s underbody, make sure that the doors are not offset, that the fenders are secure and that the vehicle has even lines that verify that the frame has not been damaged. Look at the engine bay, especially where the metal struts meet. Make sure that the joints are not crooked or damaged and inspect them for any indication that they have been welded in the recent past.

New & Used Car Dealer near Northeast Philadelphia

Kia Dealer Northeast PhiladelphiaAfter you’ve decided it’s time to buy a new or new-to-you vehicle, it is very important that you choose the best dealership for your purposes. You won’t, for instance, want to be talked down to by “experts” who dazzle you with technical terms you don’t understand, or try to upsell you on a vehicle that’s too big, or too thirsty, for yourunique needs.

Ideal Dealership

Reputation is very important, but Philadelphia is a big city. The next best thing to a personal recommendation is to assess how the industry regards any outlet you’re thinking of doing business with. Two signs of trustworthiness and professionalism are when a dealership:

  • Is an authorized factory distributor (these are typically the only places to get factory rebates and incentives)
  • Is licensed to inspect and sell Certified pre-owned vehicles on behalf of a manufacturer

Educate Yourself

Next, consider whether that dealership offers a comprehensive raft of services and amenities. Once you’ve purchased your vehicle, will you be able to maintain an ongoing association with the people you’ve done business with? Does the dealership have workshops, oil change bays, and the ability to deal with everything from a replacement tire to a complete engine overhaul?

With all that in mind, when you need a new and used car dealer near northeast Philadelphia, you need look no further than Burlington Kia!
