Do I Need a New Car?  Gurnee Hyundai Lets You Know How You Can Decide When it is the Right Time for You

Are you currently mulling over the possibility of buying or leasing a new vehicle?  We understand it is not a decision that people take lightly.  After all, purchasing a car is one of the bigger financial decisions many individuals make in their lifetime.  It is important to account for all of the considerations.  If you are currently wondering if it is time to buy a car, or even how to get started in the process, it can seem overwhelming.  There are a lot of options and questions to ask.  The team at Gurnee Hyundai, located at 6251 Grand Avenue in Gurnee, IL, is here to give you the answers to all of the questions you might have about the car buying process.

When is the Right Time?

How to Tell if it is the Right Time for Me?

There are many ways that you might know if it is the right time for you to get into the market for a new vehicle. Have you owned for vehicle for a while? Are you starting to notice that you are in the shop more frequently for auto repairs? After a while, it may stop becoming financially prudent to keep putting money into an older vehicle. If you have noticed that your repair bills are becoming more frequent, or becoming a strain on your monthly budget, it might be time for you to shop for a new vehicle.

Even if your car isn't older, it might still be worth the short drive from nearby Arlington Heights to see what Gurnee Hyundai has to offer. We have a huge selection of new Hyundai models, including some of the fan-favorites. You can spot the Hyundai Elantra, Sonata, Kona, Santa Fe, and Tucson when you come to our dealership. We also have a huge inventory of used cars, trucks, and SUVs, including Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Hyundai vehicles. Often times, our fantastic sales and finance teams can get you behind the wheel of a new car at a lower monthly payment than you are currently paying.

What to Consider?

What Are Somethings I Should Consider When Buying a New Car?

If you have ever purchased or leased a car in the past, you know that there are many questions that you should ask yourself as you begin your car buying process. Some of these questions include:

  • Do I want to buy new or used? Is Certified Pre-Owned the right choice for me?
  • What kind of body style do I want in my next vehicle? (Car, Truck, SUV)
  • What is my monthly payment budget?
  • Do I want to buy from a dealership or from a private party?
  • What kind of things are important to me in your next vehicle?

These are all important questions to ask yourself and will guide your next steps. The team at Gurnee Hyundai has assisted many car shoppers in the Des Plaines, IL area answer these questions for themselves. We can help you determine whether a new Hyundai model, or something from our pre-owned lot, is best suited for your lifestyle and budget. Our sales team can even help you figure out whether your best fit is a car, truck, or SUV.

The transparent pricing and no-pressure sales atmosphere at Gurnee Hyundai is a great place to figure out your monthly budget. If you decide to buy a used car, you can count on every pre-owned vehicle on our lot going through a thorough examination in our service center. Unlike buying a used car, truck, or SUV from a private party, many of the pre-owned options we have on our lot come with a complimentary CARFAX® Vehicle History Report.

Whether you are prioritizing safety, tech, or performance in your next car, the sales team at our dealership is committed to helping you find a vehicle that meets your needs. When you walk through our doors, you are the top priority. Our sales consultants are very knowledgeable and can match you up with a car that has the features you want in your next ride.

What About My Current Vehicle?

How Do I Go About Trading in My Current Vehicle?

Our dealership knows that trade value is an integral piece of many car deals. Some folks can't afford a new vehicle until they can trade or sell their current one. We also understand that the trade-in process can be confusing for some people. The first part of trading in your vehicle is to find out its current market value. At Gurnee Hyundai, you can do that online from the comfort of your Kenosha, WI home.

We partner with Kelley Blue Book® (KBB), one of the most trusted and respected names in the automotive business, to bring our customers the most accurate market value for their car, truck, or SUV. The KBB trade evaluator tool can be used to get this number in a matter of minutes, whether you are interested in trading in or selling your vehicle. Once you have this information, you can schedule a free appraisal with our used car manager.

Getting your trade evaluated is easy. We are always eager to add high-quality pre-owned vehicles to our used inventory, so we make aggressive offers for your trade. You can use your trade toward the purchase or lease of your next vehicle. It's a simple and seamless process to trade your car to the team at Gurnee Hyundai.

How Should I Pay?

How Does the Auto Financing Process Work?

For some customers, the auto financing portion of buying or leasing a new vehicle is the one that fills them with the most anxiety and dread. The truth is that car financing doesn't have to be difficult. In fact, much of your auto loan or Hyundai lease aspirations can be taken care of from the comfort of your Waukegan, IL home. The first decision you have regarding paying for your vehicle is deciding how you want to do it. You have three options:

  • Buying it outright
  • Financing your car
  • Leasing your vehicle

If you decide you want to pay with cash, our finance professionals can assist you with making that an easy process. It may be to your advantage, however, to explore the financing options that the finance center at Gurnee Hyundai can offer you. Our dealership often has financing specials and Hyundai lease deals that can make it a financially savvy decision to not pay with cash.

We have had APRs as low as zero percent, as well as lease payments under $200 on select Hyundai models. The finance experts at Gurnee Hyundai can discuss the current special promotions with you. There is an online credit application that you can complete. Once you submit your information, our team will be in touch to discuss all of your options.

One of the decisions that many car shoppers are often faced with is regarding whether to buy or lease their next vehicle. There are many reasons why drivers might choose either option. Some of the advantages of leasing a new Hyundai vehicle include:

  • A low monthly payment on a new Hyundai vehicle
  • The option of a new car every few years with the latest technology
  • Manufacturer warranty protection for the entire time you have the car

Of course, there are many times when someone may choose that they want to finance their vehicle. Just as with a Hyundai lease, there are some perks to going this route. They include:

  • No need to worry about mileage limitations
  • Once your auto loan is paid in full, you will have equity to use toward your next car
  • You can customize your vehicle to your specifications

While it is true that those who lease tend to be low mileage drivers who tend to want a new vehicle every few years, those are not the only people who could benefit from a Hyundai lease. At the same time, not every low mileage driver is automatically a great candidate for leasing. The finance team at Gurnee Hyundai is skilled at helping you determine the option that works best for you.

Those who do choose to finance will be faced with the decision over whether to finance with the dealership or to go with a local bank or credit union. Our finance center works with many lending partners in-house when you choose to finance with us. We are often able to beat the interest rates of local financial institutions because of this fact. The dealership also sends our lending partners a lot of business, so our customers often benefit from preferred rates. You will also get advice from experts in the field of auto finance when you work with us. While a loan officer at your local lender may know auto loans, they are not a specialist. They must know some about many different types of loans. Our finance professionals are geared entirely toward car financing.
