Before You Buy

When you’re in the market to buy a car, the process can feel a bit overwhelming. With so many vehicles and financing options available, it’s important to get ahead of the game before you even start looking.
First things first! Determine the features you need in a car versus the features you want. You may like the idea of a rugged SUV, but how often do you venture off-road? Do you spend several hours on the highway? Does your car need to fit in a small parking space? How much cargo room do you need? Consider how weather should impact your decision as well. Perhaps you don’t need four-wheel-drive if you live in a warmer climate like Florida. Once you’ve determined your must haves list, set a target price and research thevalue of your current vehicle if you plan to trade it in. To find out how much you can afford, click here for a free FORUM auto calculator.
At this point, it’s time to shop around! As you call and visit dealerships, compare pricing. You can also do this for free online through FORUM’s Your Auto Center. Members have access to a variety of tools to help research, shop, and buy vehicles.
Now it’s time to finance. FORUM financing is available at most Central Indiana dealerships. When you purchase new or used autos at participating dealerships, you can finance through FORUM and complete the loan at the dealership. For a list of participating dealerships, click here. Plus, if you get preapproved with FORUM before visiting the dealership and you purchase a car from a partner dealership, we’ll give you a $50 gift card!
If you’re ready to get preapproved, call 317-558-6299.
