While some people just have a car to get them around town and to work, others have cars that are just more than a means of transportation. Some car shoppers are looking for their dream car and they want it to have the features they want. Well, with NowCar you can purchase your car (and all of the upgraded bells and whistles) online without going to a dealership. And, one of the best parts is that your new car is delivered to you for free.
Whether a flashy muscle car like a Dodge Challenger or an off-roading monster like a Jeep Wrangler, rims and tires are a great and easy way to customize your new car purchase.
Rims today are available in all types of materials ranging from the basic steel wheels, to aluminum rims to performance rims available in carbon or forged aluminum. There’s also a variety of rim colors. In the last few years, two-toned painted aluminum wheels have become pretty popular on a variety of cars.
Those that travel to and from the northern states for winter holidays or ski trips, may want to consider adding all-season tires that will help the car navigate snowy or icy roads this winter.
While there are two manufacturers that offer excellent 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranties, Kia and Mitsubishi (available at NowCar), that is not the standard powertrain warranty. The industry’s average powertrain warranty protects a car for five years or 60,000 miles, so extended warranties are great options to consider for those that drive a lot or plan on keeping their car for a long time.
There are a variety of extended warranties that range from what they protect and how long they last. The nice part about choosing an extended warranty during the purchase process is that the extra payment can be added into your monthly payment. However, if you buy an extended warranty from a private company after you have purchased the car, you will need to pay for the extended warranty upfront.
While a few cars, SUVs and trucks, like the Jeep Wrangler, still come standard with a spare tire, many manufacturers no longer provide a spare tire with their standard trims. However, if you have ever had a flat, you know how helpful it is to have an available spare tire with you. Flats can happen at any time, so don’t think because you're tires are new, you won’t get one.
Manufacturers tend to reserve the more expensive modern tech features for their nicest and most expensive trims, however, many entertainment systems, like touchscreens and backup cameras, can be added onto a purchase without upgrading the car trim. It’s great way to get your standard car equipped with the most modern technologies and at a more affordable price.
