New Car Checklist

Added: 23 May 2017

Are you looking at buying a new car? There is a lot to think about, and it can be quite overwhelming especially if it is your first car! A recent study revealed that many car buyers would rather spend money on extras such as infotainment systems and luxury interiors rather than some safety features. But what should you be looking for when buying a new car? We’re here to help with some top tips!

Budget & Requirements

The first thing to consider is your budget. Whether you’re looking to buy a car outright, or get on one a finance package it is important to think about what you can afford. You then need to think about what you need. If it’s a car for cruising round the city we’d recommend the nifty and stylish Vauxhall ADAM, or if you need something with room for all the family, and maybe the dog too what about the Vauxhall Mokka X? The Vauxhall range is extensive and we’re sure there is a car perfect for you. Speak to your nearest Drive Vauxhall showroom today to discuss what car and payment option is best for you.

Safety Features

This is something all new car buyers should think about. These days new cars come with a whole host of safety features from, emergency brake assist and blind spot warning to lane-keep assist naming but a few, it can seem a little confusing as to what you’ll need. If you have children, isofix fittings for car seats would be super beneficial, as well as seat belt alarms just in case your little angels decide to have a play with the seat belt while on the move!

Safety features should be high up on your list of priorities when looking for a new car. Make sure you look at the full technical specifications for your new car to make sure it has all the safety features you need.

Vauxhall OnStar

A fantastic safety feature developed by Vauxhall is the OnStar system. It will help you contact the emergency services in the event of an accident, identifies warning lights on your dashboard, and acts as a wi-fi hotspot to help you stay connected (obviously to only use when not driving!).
