Rebates: Are they as good as you imagine?


Rebates

It’s a term that’s thrown around the auto industry all the time. Commercials scream at you just how huge of a rebate you can get, and they are packaged as a saving tool to buy a car.

The conversation around rebates needs to shift. Consumers need to understand exactly what a rebate is and what it does before purchasing a vehicle with a rebate. So we broke it down for you.

Lets Break It Down

A rebate in basic definition is a partial refund to someone who has paid to much money for something. Right off the bat you should know this is huge.  Rebates are offered when a vehicle is not selling or there is too many of them left. It’s a way to incentivize customers into buying the product. Rather than lowering the price on a product, they give you money to use as a down payment towards the product.

This “down payment” lowers the cost of the vehicle to it’s actual worth.  Lets say that again for those in the back.

Instead of pricing the vehicle at it’s actual worth, they give you a “down payment” to lower it to that price.  Don’t believe us? Test it out. Find a dealership offering rebates on a new model. Then search that exact VIN on Kelley Blue Book. Once you are done come back, because we aren’t finished yet.

Did you do it? Crazy I know! Hold on here’s more….

Your Car's Value

Rebates can hurt the value of your vehicle. If a certain model isn’t selling well and the manufacturer offers a rebate, then that model line can see a hit in their value. It’s not a huge hit, unless you drive that specific model. If you purchase a 2018 car and 4 months later there is a $6,000 rebate, well hate to say it your brand new car just took a dip in value.

Rebates aren’t all bad, but here at Subaru of Wichita you won’t ever see a rebate. We price our cars at their value, are open and transparent, and a Subaru is way to reliable to not sell well!

Test Drive Tips

Test Drive Tips

Test driving a new car is an exciting moment. We want to make sure you get the most out of your test drive, so here are some tips to help!

Recreate your life

Often times there is a “route” that the salesperson wants you to take. This is fine, but make sure you drive the vehicle in the type of environment that you drive in your day-to-day life. If you are constantly in stop and go traffic, then it doesn’t make sense to only drive on the highway does it? Drive the car how you will drive it.

 

Get Some Silence

 

Of course you’ll switch the radio on during your test drive. It’s important to make sure it works well, and you like the sound quality coming out of the speakers. However, silence is important as well. Take a second to listen to the engine and the sound of the tires. You want to make sure the vehicle is running smoothly, and with talking or loud noise you’ll never hear it.

 

Bring a friend


Two heads are truly better than one, and a test drive is no exception to that rule.  Having someone along for the ride can help you better understand your vehicle. While you are getting excited about how good the heated seats feel, they can be in the back seat hearing the weird wobble sound coming from the tire. Once you get back from the test drive, you can compare your notes and get a better view of issues that the vehicle may or may not have. Having someone there to help in the car buying process is always a good idea.

 

Try Other Seats

 

Other people will ride in your car at some point. Don’t you want them to feel comfortable? So hop in the back seat and see what the legroom is like. Especially as a parent, if your kids aren’t with you it’s important to get a feel for what they will be experiencing.

 

Bring Your Lifestyle

 

This may be the biggest one on the list. Numerous people purchase a vehicle that they love, take it home and find out their car seat doesn’t really fit in the back or their golf clubs can’t fit in the trunk. If you have larger objects or something that you use your vehicle for often, bring it! We want to make sure you are 100% happy with the purchase of your new or used vehicle, so bring your golf clubs if needed!
