Here at Lake Wales Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM near Bartow, FL, we know that the car buying process can be a complicated one. That is why we have compiled a loose checklist of steps to help guide you through.


The internet is a great tool, so why not use it to your advantage? There’s no shortage of different types of cars. The best way to figure out which one you want is to take a look at everything. This early in the process you’d be doing good to narrow it down to a short list of cars you know you’re interested in.


Assuming you are unable to pay the full price for a car, out of pocket, upfront, it’s time to start looking at your financing choices. This will give you a realistic picture of what you can afford and how you can go about doing so. Leasing and buying are the most likely options. Feel free to check out our Jeep finance center for more information on the subject.
