Buy Where You Drive

If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, you have a few options: buy from a private seller, buy online, or buy from a dealer. Buying a new car is a big step, and buying from a local dealer has numerous advantages, including vehicle extras, reputation, and financing options. Shopping local also brings the added benefit of boosting the economy.

When you buy from a dealer, you have extra options for your new vehicle and can add features to make your vehicle your own, like custom colors and accessories, or an extended warranty to cover your car after the manufacturer warranty expires. Dealers may offer promos like free oil changes or tire rotations to keep your vehicle running smoothly months after purchase.

Buying from a local dealer also means getting personalized customer care. When you shop at Big Valley Ford-Lincoln, Mataga Cadillac-Buick-GMC or Mazda of Stockton and call ahead to facilitate the process, you’ll be treated to a VIP experience by our automotive experts. Our variety of available financing options means you’ll avoid the hassle of securing your own financing. You won’t find these benefits available from a private seller or when shopping online.

When you shop local, you also help make a positive economic impact. Local businesses create more local jobs for residents and reinvest in the community at a higher rate than online retailers. Your dollars stay in the community as your sales taxes fund vital services like police and fire protection, street repairs, and trash collection. You’ll often get better service at a local dealer, too. Business owners take time to get to know their customers and are well-informed about their products, so you can get an expert opinion on your next vehicle.

As we head into the holiday season, we also enter the best time of year to buy a new car. Shop local in November and December for the best deals on 2016 models before 2017 models roll out. Black Friday deals could help you save big on a new car, and if you’re thinking of heading to the Stockton Auto Mall on a weekend, make an appointment for a Sunday test drive - Sunday is the best day of the week to purchase a vehicle.

For your next vehicle purchase, buy where you drive and shop local at Big Valley Ford-Lincoln, Mataga Cadillac-Buick-GMC or Mazda of Stockton. You’ll experience great customer service and help support the local economy in the process.
