Questions to Ask When You’re Ready to Buy a New Car in Mobile, AL

If you have found the ideal new Lexus or pre-owned luxury model for you here at Lexus of Mobile, we’ll be thrilled to help you through the steps of sealing the deal so you can drive home in your elegant vehicle as soon as possible. Choosing to buy or lease a vehicle is an important decision, whether this is your first time or one of many. No matter which model you choose, you’ll be driving home a new member of the family once you’ve signed on the dotted line. Since a vehicle is a major investment, it’s important that you are sure you’ve picked the right model for you. If you’re still pondering whether to commit to a vehicle from Lexus of Mobile, we want to help you make up your mind. Take a look at the questions below that you can ask yourself and our team as you decide which car to select.

Why do I need the car?

Think back to the reason you wanted to buy or lease a new vehicle in the first place. Why do you need a new car? What body style do you prefer? Which type of powertrain fits your lifestyle best? If you have a long commute, a growing family or a hobby that requires lots of cargo space or a roof rack, take a moment to reflect on why you wanted to upgrade. This should help you refocus on your priorities when it comes to choosing a vehicle. If the model you’ve settled on still meets your needs, that’s wonderful. If not, feel free to ask one of our team members to help you find a model that better suits you, your family and your lifestyle.

What are my must-haves?

Did you make a list of must-have features before you began car shopping? If so, take a look at your list. If the model you’re considering doesn’t have the features you prioritized — such as leather upholstery, a moonroof or a power liftgate — decide whether its other merits outweigh these absences. While a list of must-haves is undoubtedly helpful when choosing a vehicle, don’t let one or two missing features stand between you and a car you love unless they’re truly dealbreakers. If you decide the missing features are too important to go without, let us know and we will do our best to match you up with a model that has everything you want.

How much can I afford?

If you’re shopping in person with one of our team members, you have probably already discussed how much you would like to spend so that they can show you models that fit within your budget. However, if you went into your search looking for a pre-owned model but you’ve fallen in love with a new Lexus instead, make sure that the new model matches your finances. Since budgeting is extremely important when it comes to buying a vehicle, it’s wisest to choose the model that will fit your overall financial situation comfortably. Don’t forget that we offer new and pre-owned car specials that can reduce your total cost.

May I see a copy of the car’s history report?

Absolutely. We offer CARFAX® Vehicle History Reports for all pre-owned models we sell. There’s no guesswork required — everything the vehicle has been through will be clearly laid out on the report.
