3 Things You May Get With Your New Car Purchase That May Surprise You

Posted on

Buying a new car is an exciting thing in itself. However, a lot of new car buyers are really surprised to see all the perks that come with buying a new car, some of which may be a little surprising. Take a look at some of the special freebies you may get or perks that may be offered if you buy a brand new car from an auto dealership. 

You may get a trial subscription to a satellite radio service. 

If your car has the ability to connect to satellite radio services, such as Sirius Satellite Radio, don't be surprised if you get a free trial subscription to the service just for purchasing your car. Satellite radio is pretty awesome if you've never tried it, and having a trial subscription will help you decide if you want to pay to keep the service. This subscription may be for 30 days, a few months, or even longer—it just depends on what the dealership has going at the time you purchase of your car. 

You may get a coupon for your first free oil change. 

If the auto dealer that you buy your car from also has an on-site maintenance garage, they will try to keep you coming back for maintenance when your new car needs it. One way many dealerships will do that is by giving new car buyers a coupon to come back and get their first oil change for free or perhaps their first service check for free. In some situations, it will be a requirement of the warranty to have your vehicle serviced by a certified mechanic, and most on-site mechanics at car lots will have certified repair professionals. 

You may get a referral bonus if you encourage someone else to buy a car. 

It is not at all uncommon for auto dealers to run promotions to try and attract new customers, and they may even bring you in on the action if you are interested. Referral bonuses involve you getting a cash reward if you can refer a friend to the lot who also ends up buying a new car. These referral bonuses can be pretty attractive; sometimes as much as hundreds of dollars per person referred that makes a purchase. So, if you have a knack for sales yourself and really want to pocket some extra cash, referral bonuses are well worth looking into if they are offered.
