Beyond the Lot: Our Tips for Ordering a New Custom Car

March 23rd, 2013 by

At Fisher Honda in Boulder, we’re proud of our large selection, but with the diverse range of models, colors, trim levels, and options that Honda offers, there are an infinite amount of combinations. If you’ve searched our new car inventory and still haven’t found the perfect model for you, don’t worry—there’s hope! With just a few easy steps, you can order the new car of your dreams through Fisher Honda.

When custom ordering, there are several important factors to consider. Here are our top tips for making the most of your customized car buying experience:

Be Patient

True love takes time, and waiting for your custom car is no different. Custom ordered cars can take anywhere from 8-12 weeks to arrive from the manufacturer to the dealer, so make sure you have a Plan B if you’re currently carless.

Know Your Budget

Online shopping can get expensive quickly, and with a plethora of options available it can be easy to overdo it. Before choosing trim packages and options for your new car, have a clearly defined budget in mind so you don’t go overboard. At Fisher Honda, we offer online pre-approval for financing so you’ll know exactly how much you have to spend on that shiny new ride.

Once you’re set on a budget, visit our lot and test drive a few different trim levels of your chosen model to get a feel for what features will affect your everyday driving experience the most. You may be surprised by what you find.

Consider the Resale Value

Even though you’re buying your dream car and you don’t even want to think about selling it, you should keep it in mind. By making informed decisions about what options are popular and will retain their value in a few years, you’ll ensure that the investment you’re about to make is a wise one. If you have questions about which features do well on the resale market, ask one of our knowledgeable sales staff for advice before placing your order.

Get it in Writing

Once you’ve picked out the perfect car and discussed pricing with your sales representative, get the details in writing so that both parties are clear on what to expect when your new car arrives.
