If it has been some time since you have looked at any new cars, then you may be in for a pleasant surprise when you see the most up to date technology. It's not rather as futuristic as George Jetson's ride that turns into a briefcase, but there are still some neat gadgets nowadays.
Available on a wide number of new cars, this technology uses black and white cameras and LIDAR to determine the distance from you to the vehicle in front of you. LIDAR is laser radar that sends out a signal that pings or bounces off objects in front of you to determine speed and distance. The driver presets following distance and after that sets cruise ship speed using the cruise ship control function. If someone in front of you speeds up, you will also speed up to the preset speed. If someone in front of you brakes or decreases, you will decrease as well. Some systems allow the driver to resume control, and some systems will bring the vehicle to a complete stop if necessary.
With all of these gimmicky gadgets out there, you may be thinking this may be too much to handle. If it's been a few years since you bought a new vehicle, you may not even recognize keyless entry, GPS navigation, anti-lock brakes, or other new systems. Take a drive to your nearest dealership to see what new cars they have to offer.

Additionally, consider gas mileage. If you have a long work commute, a gas-guzzling SUV may not be the very best choice for you. You'll also wish to consider how long you'll keep your new ride, because that will determine if its resale value is a concern. As you discover your needs, be sure to write them down.
While your budget is necessary, so is your credit. If you plan on getting a loan when you start visiting used car dealers, your credit score will contribute in what you can afford. If your credit is good, the bank may agree to work with you to lower your interest rate. If your credit is bad, the APR may be higher. Many of the larger used car dealers work hand-in-hand with banks to ensure they can assist people, regardless of their credit score, in obtaining the very best possible loan rate and payment plan. Certainly, you may independently obtain your own financing before making an offer on a car. The choice is yours.
Next, check the vehicle history on a site like Carfax.com. If the vehicle checks out, schedule a test drive of the car, and try to test it on roads like the ones you would generally encounter during your day-to-day routine. Ask any used car dealers you visit for records. After considering all the aspects of the car and whether it fits your budget, make an offer to a trusted salesperson.
