Buying a car is a serious undertaking. Here at Ourisman Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM of Bowie near Crofton, MD, our Jeep dealers in MD want to help make it as smooth an undertaking as possible. Following these few steps is a great start.


There are a lot of cars out there. It helps if you already have an idea of what you want, but even if you do, additional research can introduce you to things you might not have known you wanted otherwise. Once you’ve researched what’s available, it’s time to narrow down your list. It’s a good idea to have a least two cars on your short list.


Now that you know what you want, it’s time to figure out how you’re going to pay for it. Decide whether you want to buy or lease. Our Dodge finance center can be a great help in this department.

Set up a Test Drive

Reading about stats and features of a vehicle is great in the research stage. However, before you actually commit to making such a large purchase, you’ll want to test it out for yourself. Even if your first choice drives like a dream, be sure you try out all the cars on your short list. At the end of the day, you don’t want any doubt you are making the right decision.


Once you know for certain which car you want, it’s time to iron out the pricing. You should check for Dodge deals, rebates, and promotions. The features you select will also affect the price, as will warranties and prepaid service plans. Essentially, find out exactly what’s expected from you financially.

Make Your Final Decision

If you’re comfortable with what you’re giving for what you’re getting, then you will shortly be in possession of a great car like the 2018 Jeep Renegade from Ourisman Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM of Bowie!
