One day you wake up.
And while it’s just another day in the Cincinnati area, there is one major difference: you find yourself in need of a new car.
The “why” doesn’t really matter. Maybe you need to add a second car to your household, to accommodate the various demands of your family. Or maybe you have a licensed child who needs their own set of wheels. Perhaps you’ve driven your last car into the ground in order to eliminate a car payment. Whatever the reason, you’ve decided that it’s time to bite the bullet and make the investment. Undecided as to whether you’re looking to buy new or used, the only thing you know for certain is that it will be a Mazda.
And while some people might be predisposed to the hunt and to the art of the deal, the vast majority of the population finds little-to-no joy in the process of car buying. Then again, what part of it is supposed to be enjoyable? Scrutinizing over one’s finances, forcing you to acknowledge the disparity between ‘what you want’ and ‘what you can afford?’ Hours of online research, between manufacture sites, dealer sites and industry reviews? Trekking between dealerships, analyzing the minutiae between near-identical inventories while ducking zealous salespeople? Having to make concessions if there are limitations in available inventory? Seeking out and securing financing, if necessary? Having to finally work with a salesperson you had tried so hard to avoid, in order to finalize the deal? Taxes? Titles? Registrations?
Now…I’m not trying to discourage your plans to buy a car (quite the opposite, actually). My point is: all you want to do is to buy a Mazda, why does it have to be such an exercise in frustration? There has got to be…
An Easier Way
Consider comparing brick and mortars to cyber-shopping…
We’re not here to disparage traditional car buying methods, or the service offered by dealerships. But buying online simply helps you buy the car that you want, eliminating parts of the car buying process that can remove the joy from the experience.
So you’ve decided that you’re going with a Mazda. You know what you can afford, and you have done your research. Whether you’re interested in a new CX-9 or an older model Mazda3, you should not be limited by the inventory present on any dealer lot.
A scenario: you’re interested in a 2015 CX-5. After performing your due diligence, you’ve decided that the Touring package meets all of your needs (and in a perfect world, you’d prefer it in the Meteor Gray Mica). So, you take a drive down to visit your nearest Mazda dealership and they’re glad to help, but their inventory of 2015 CX-5 is limited. They can offer you a Sport or a Grand Touring edition, but both are in the Soul Red Metallic. There is a 2017 CX-5 Touring in Machine Gray Metallic (which some might say is ‘close enough’) but that’s not what you’re looking for. Which concession are you prepared to make: the trim level, the color, the model year, or the possibility of paying more?
All too-often, people’s car buying decisions are based on some sort of concession. Why? Because the process wears them down, and they’re unaware that there are other options. But this is an investment on your part, and shopping online nets you the exact vehicle you want.
From model to year, from trim level to color, tell your online car dealer exactly what you’re looking for and they will find it courtesy of a nationwide search…and they’ll find one with a clean CarFAX Vehicle History Report, to boot.
Just as shopping for your next car online empowers you to find the exact vehicle that you’re looking for, you’ll also be able to take advantage of various lending options. In other words, you’ll be able to find the financing solution that best suits your individual needs.
Whether you have stellar credit, are a first-time car buyer with limited credit, or have had difficulty securing financing due to past struggles, buying your next car online can open more doors, providing you with more lending options than a traditional dealership ever could. Why spend your valuable time doing the legwork, when online vendors are glad to do it for you?
It Can’t Be That Easy
Can it? Yes. And more important, it should be that easy.
And the concierge services offered online automotive vendors don’t stop once they’ve found your vehicle. If you’d prefer, you can make more stops at a dealership to finalize your purchase, just to sign piles of paperwork. But when you shop online, you get everything you need electronically. No driving, no need for face-to-face, no waste of your valuable time!
Just as many people don’t care to set foot in crowded shopping malls, some people don’t enjoy spending extended period of time at a dealership. If you’re on the former team, it’s very likely that yours is one of the 80 million American households with an Amazon Prime membership. Why? Because you can shop from the comfort of your own home or mobile phone, and have your purchases delivered to your door.
In that regard, online car buying is not unlike Amazon. Imagine never having to set foot on a dealer lot if you don’t want to. Imagine your new vehicle delivered to your home or work (with a full tank of gas)!
Buying anything online is an exercise in trust. Which is why most online automotive dealers offer a 3-Day / 150-Mile Satisfaction Guarantee, and a Free Lifetime Mechanical Warranty.
Do What’s Right For You
Car buying is a very personal experience. You deserve the ease of shopping, buying a vehicle on your own time, and on your own terms. Online car shopping offers all this, and is designed to tailor itself to your needs, and your shopping process.
Why? Because you deserve the vehicle you want, whether it’s a 2015 CX-5 Touring Edition in Meteor Gray Mica, or something else entirely. So stop searching…and start driving, courtesy of online ease…
