  1. Determine your budget. Before you look into the type of vehicle you want to buy, you need to figure out how much you can afford. You will need to consider down payment, monthly payments, car insurance payments, and maintenance. A good rule to remember is that your monthly payments should not be more than 10% of your monthly income.
  2. Research the vehicles you are interested in. Finding a vehicle that fits your needs and wants can help ensure that your first car buying experience goes well. Take the time to figure out if you need something for long commutes, space for passengers, or high performance. Once you know what type of vehicle you want, research the most popular models using reviews online and suggestions from friends and family.
  3. Inspect the car you’re interested in. Once you find a vehicle at Bell Auto that you are interested in, make sure you learn as much about it as you can. Ask about its history, if there are any problems, any accident history, and get an inspection if you can. You can also get a CARFAX Canada vehicle history report on the vehicle of interest so that you can get all the important details of the vehicle’s history.
