With life comes progression and growth physically and mentally. I haven’t always considered the future when making decisions in the past, but being a parent has forced me to think that way. It’s been a while since the last time I purchased a car, but it is something we are going to need to look into in the near future because we simply need the space.
With age comes wisdom and with tools like Capital One’s Auto Navigator I can take what I’ve learned from then and feel sure that I’m doing what’s best for my family. *This is a sponsored post for Capital One.
Capital One has seriously raised the bar in the car shopping experience because they have you covered! It’s one of those things that has me continually saying ‘Where was this when I was purchasing my last car?’. I had more time to spare back then, but I could not imagine having to that with us being as busy as we are and having to drag Zara to different dealerships on top of that. What’s so awesome about the Auto Navigator is that it has over 12,000 dealerships that we can look at and we can go into one confidently and know specifics. They’re just so good in keeping you in the know!
Advice I would give to my(younger)self:
–Do your research on yourself before you go out and shop. That is definitely one thing I wish I would’ve reminded myself to do the last time I car shopped. My last experience, I went with what I knew as far as cars and stuck to it which wasn’t a terrible idea but I would tell myself to not be afraid to think big!
-Stay within your budget. I love that the Auto Navigator lets you test different features for financing so that you can know the most before walking into any dealership on the specific car you’re looking at! It lets you know right there what you can expect so you’re not left guessing.
-Know your needs. Cars aren’t a ‘one size fits all’ kind of thing. Everyone’s family has different needs and wants in their vehicle. And no, having a large family doesn’t automatically mean you have to have a minivan but if you need one that’s great. And the Auto Navigator will help you find the perfect one in your area.
