It's easy to get overwhelmed when you have hundreds of used cars to choose from. AutoNation Honda South Corpus Christi is here to help make the car buying process easy for seasoned and first-time buyers alike. Check out our handy guide and tools for buying your first car.

1. Find your dream car

To find the perfect vehicle for your traveling needs, you'll want to head over to our new vehicle inventory or used inventory to check out what we offer. Find a model that fits your lifestyle - whether you commute around town, haul kids and soccer equipment, or take long road trips.

Sometimes, you know the car when you see it. But most of the time, you'll want to research which car fits your lifestyle. Consider your daily routine and how you would use a car in Bellevue, WA. You don't have to go for a brand new truck. In fact, you could opt for a reliable, certified used vehicle to get you around town. Every used vehicle undergoes an extensive reconditioning process to ensure it is safe and dependable.

2. Test drive your dream car

When you're ready to see a vehicle in person, it's time to come visit us. If you've never been to a car dealership by yourself before, don't be intimidated. It may be overwhelming when you find our extensive lot of new and used vehicles, but having just a few questions at the ready can ease your mind and make the process move smoothly.

      What can I actually afford? Knowing your budget ahead of time will narrow down your choices for your test drive process. Use our payment calculator to help you determine potential car payments.

      Should I lease or buy a vehicle? There are many pros and cons when deciding whether or not to lease or buy your new or used car. If you plan on keeping your car for awhile, buying it may be the best option.

      What is the cost of ownership? Ask the dealership about vehicle protection plans to help reduce the cost of repairs and maintenance over time. The cost of ownership may vary from dealership to dealership.

Here are a few additional tips to help you with your test drive.

      Schedule an appointment to test drive your vehicle. Wait times will vary depending on the day of the week.

      Avoid busy weeknights or holiday weekends when sales and promotions are involved. AutoNation offers competitive pricing year-round, you'll be sure to get a great price.

      Drive in different conditions if possible. You may want to plan ahead and come back when it's raining, or at sunset, to get the feel for the vehicle when it isn't partly sunny.

      Survey the controls, infotainment system, and other features beyond drivability. Check for ease of use, understanding, and reach.

      Consider your lifestyle. Will a child seat fit? Is there plenty of cargo space for soccer equipment? Would your dogs be comfortable and safe in the back?

Once you've decided on a vehicle, it's time to move on to the next step -- financing.

3. Get financing

If you're short on time, you'll definitely want to fill out our loan application ahead of time. Not only will it give you a better idea of what car you can afford and will receive financing for, it will help your sales representative get you going in your new car.

We make vehicle financing easy with a wide range of finance and lease programs, and a

menu that clearly presents all the prices and options. So you can choose the one that is right

for you. Our Finance Pledge ensures full visibility into the process.

4. We'll buy your car

We want to buy your car from you. Get a top-dollar offer and a check the same day. We'll buy any year, make or model. The process is quick, convenient, and you can get started from the comfort of your own home.
