It took me awhile to “get” it. But now that I understand the secret to finding and buying the car of my dreams and doing it without a ton of hassle and stress – I can’t keep this type of information to myself! Sure, we’ve all had a bad experience or heard of someone who has – but times are changing! Car buying isn’t like it used to be in the past. So, today, I’m sharing a few helpful tips and tricks you need to know to drive yourself into the new reality of bringing home your next vehicle. The vehicle choice might be retro-inspired but the process won’t be!
New Autos are Bringing Retro Back – But This Time with a Trailblazing Buying Experience
I’ve been to quite a few auto shows this year and one thing I’ve picked up on is that retro is back! Throughout most of the brands, things like vintage color choices, retro-inspired designs, and even the free spirit vibe can easily be picked up on across the show floor. Vehicle brands are embracing the culture of road tripping families and off-roading adventurers but with vehicles and technology that is totally revolutionary!
Can Vehicle Shopping Be Fun and Easy? Yes!
People always ask me what the secret is for winning at the car buying process and my answer is always this.
First, go to a local car show and shop the brands. If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s that a car show is a perfect place to shop without the pressure of buying! Where else can one shop multiple brands and vehicle all at the same time? Plus car shows can be super fun for the whole family – a day of adventure and play!

And if all the new tech options at the show have you swooning like they have me, you’ll be excited to hear that it’s not only the new vehicles that tech-savvy. The way we purchase our vehicles and secure financing has also experienced a much-needed tech upgrade!
That brings me to tip number two: after going to the auto show and choosing the perfect vehicle, go to your phone and download the AutoGravity app. Here’s why. The AutoGravity app allows you to find the vehicle you want at a local dealership, plus find and secure the best auto financing all through your phone. An app for vehicle financing?? You heard me right!
How Does AutoGravity Work?
AutoGravity is a car financing solution for those tech-savvy, on-the-go lifestyles. It’s for people who want to know the commitment before getting too deep into the car buying process. And it’s for those who know what they want and want to get it at the best rate.
You see, AutoGravity works in four easy steps – all which are done FREE through the app or online.
- Browse through vehicles and choose the perfect one.
- Find a local dealership that has your chosen vehicle – accessories and all.
- Apply directly through the app for vehicle financing.
- Choose an offer from up to four lending services to get the best rate.
You can also use the app to calculate your estimated monthly calculated car payment after finding out the personalized rate quote. Feels good to be in the driver’s seat, doesn’t it?
