Learn how to explore cars online with confidenceBy Kijiji Autos
Thanks to trusted listings sites like Kijiji Autos, online car shopping is easier than ever. You can take virtually the entire car-buying process online—from browsing for your dream car to getting the estimated trade-in value of your current vehicle.
Here are some tips for buying a car online:
Covid-19 has changed the way we shop. Now, many buying journeys that used to involve shaking hands, testing merchandise and waiting in line are all moved to digital marketplaces, like Kijiji Autos. Here's how you can get started finding the car of your dreams:
We highly recommend exploring your options before deciding you've found "the one." Our listings make it easy to compare models with our Kijiji Price Analysis, Payment Estimator and Car Mileage Analysis when available. Don't forget to check out the model's CARFAX report (if available).
Review dealers and private sellers
Before you buy a new car, it's worth taking a look at the Seller Review section of the listing. This tells you about customers' past experiences with the seller and gives you a general idea of what to expect.
Book a virtual test drive
Last year, drivers were able to safely book a virtual test drive from the comfort and security of their own homes. While dealerships across the country have largely opened back up again with new COVID-19 safety regulations, explore virtual test drives to give you added peace of mind.
You found the car and now you want to finance it. No problem. Here are ways to help you choose suitable financing options:
Learn about financing
Did you know that your monthly car payments depend on several factors and not just your down payment amount? Learning about your options will help you make an informed decision on your budget.
Learn all about car financing, loans and leases on our information page.
Use Kijiji Autos Payment Estimator tool
You'll find our easy-to-use payment estimator tool in our listings to give you a better sense of how much a car is going to cost you every month. You'll need to enter the details, such as the payment frequency, down payment and the length of your financing term.
Before you even reach out to the dealer, you'll know if a car is likely to fit your budget.
You could get pre-approved
Submit your financing information to find out if your application has been pre-approved. Knowing exactly how much you can afford to spend will save you valuable time.
Get a trade-in value estimation
Find out the potential value of your car with a trade-in value estimate. You can use the estimated trade-in value of your current vehicle against the price of the new car in the payment estimator and immediately see the impact on the payment value.
