At Freehold Subaru, we want to help all drivers in the Freehold, Englishtown, Manalapan, and Marlboro areas find their ideal vehicle as quickly as possible. That's why we've created this helpful guide.

To find out how you can buy a new car in under an hour, check it out below.

Use a Few Online Tools

To make the car-buying experience faster, take advantage of a few online tools. If you want to learn more about a vehicle, check out a few online reviews and comparisons. If you want to see if the car you want is in stock near you, look through the dealership's online inventory. Don't forget to use filters, too, so you can find it faster.

Once you've find your ideal new car, you can calculate the value or your trade-in or monthly payments online using special calculators. With all that information, you'll be able to find and drive home in your new car in no time.

Get Pre-Approved for Financing

If you want to finance your new car, get pre-approved online. Applying for financing online can save you a bit of time at the dealership. To get pre-approved, submit the online finance application. Once the finance experts have gone through it, they will get in touch with you as soon as possible to let you know if you've been approved.

Plus, you can use a few special tools to see what kind of monthly payments you'll need to make based on your credit, down payment, and the value of your current vehicle. With these, you'll be able to see if the vehicle you want is the best option for your budget.

Get Essential Documents and Your ID Ready

The best thing you can do to speed up the shopping process is to be prepared before you head to the dealership. When you want to buy a car, you will need to make sure you have all the appropriate documents and identification. Typically, you'll need to bring:

  • Your driver's license
  • Proof of insurance
  • Registration and title for your current car

You should also make sure you have a check or cash for your down payment. That way, you can put however much you need down as soon as you and the dealer negotiate a price. If you have a set number you want to put down, bring only that amount or write a check for just that amount. This will help you stay on budget.

It's Time to Shop for Your New Car

Now that you know a little more about how to make the car-buying process easier and more convenient, it's time to start your shopping trip at Freehold Subaru.
