Tips for First-Time Car Buyers:


If you're a first-time car buyer, we're eager to help you! Trust the team at Cogswell Motors to work with you and help you find the car of your dreams for a price you can afford. Check out our three most important pieces of advice for first-time car buyers:

1) Set a budget and look into different financing plans
Taking $500 off the price of your new Ford is a great way to start, but there's a lot more involved with buying a car than just getting the best price. It's important that you're realistic about what you can and can't afford from the beginning, and stay within your budget. You're already off to a great start because you're looking at new Ford models, and the vehicles at Cogswell Motors are priced fairly and within your means. Plus, you can save even more by taking advantage of one of our new Ford specials.

In addition to the upfront costs of owning a car, you'll also need to consider how much you'll spend on insurance, maintenance, gas, tolls, taxes and more. Owning a car is a serious commitment, and if you're not responsible with payments it can impact your credit score.

At Cogswell Motors, we offer both financing and leasing plans. That way there's always something to suit your lifestyle. If you choose to finance, you'll likely make larger monthly payments, but once you pay off your Ford it'll be all yours to enjoy for years. If you lease, you'll have much smaller monthly payments but you'll have to give the car back at the end of your lease term. You can learn more about the differences between leasing and financing from our Ford finance specialists.


2) Make a wish list of what you want out of your new car
Whether you're hoping to drive off in a new Ford SUV or you want a practical and eco-friendly sedan, there are plenty of options for you at our Russellville, AR, Ford dealership. Are you in fact prioritizing fuel efficiency? Then the new Ford Fusion might be the right choice. Need an SUV with enough seating for all your friends? You can't go wrong with the Ford Explorer or Ford Edge. If you just want to get behind the wheel of a new pickup truck, the Ford F-150 is the perfect option.

3) Take the Ford you think you want for a test-drive
Once you've decided exactly which new Ford you like best, you should come on down to Cogswell Motors and take it for a test-drive. Give us a call in advance or contact us online so we can set something up. Ask yourself if you like the way it drives, if it has all the features you wanted and if you're comfortable behind the wheel.

Conduct even more research by chatting with our sales team. They'll help you familiarize yourself with the vehicle, and show you all its various technology options. Some new Ford models come with touchscreen infotainment systems, some connect automatically with your Apple® or Android® smartphone and some have the technology that help you park. We'll teach you how to use it all!



Visit us at Cogswell Motors in Russellville, AR, at your earliest convenience. We'll help you celebrate your recent or upcoming graduation, or set you up with the cool new car you need to cruise around campus. We look forward to working with you!
