10 reasons to fall in love with a new vehicle


With Valentine’s fever in the air, it’s a great time to talk about falling in love with a new car. Few things exist as exciting as driving off a lot in a new, or new-to-you, vehicle. After all, who can resist the delightfully familiar scent of a new car? We’d like to share with you some reasons why you should consider buying a new or pre-owned vehicle with Drive® this season.

  1. Save on maintenance
  2. Buying a new or new-to-you vehicle is a great way to avoid costly repairs on your current vehicle. If you notice your car is starting to cost a little more than usual, it might be time to get pre-qualified with Drive.

  3. No impact to your credit score
  4. Drive uses a soft credit pull to pre-qualify you, which means even if you’ve got some bumps and bruises on your credit, your score won’t be impacted by your pre-qualification. If you’d like to know more about soft credit pulls, you can check out our article here.

  5. It only takes two minutes
  6. In the time it takes to brush your teeth, you could get pre-qualified for a new or new-to-you vehicle. What are you waiting for?

  7. You could save money
  8. If you’ve been interested in electric vehicles (EVs), you might consider buying one to save on gas money. If you’re driving an old gas-guzzler, a new EV might be a better fit for you.

  9. Your car is important
  10. There aren’t many relationships in your life more important than how you get along with your transportation. Getting yourself and your loved ones and reliably to the places you need to go is critical. Make sure you’re driving something you and your family can rely on.

  11. Your car means something to you
  12. Cars and their styles can mean the world to a person. Maybe you had a parent who spent a lot of time tinkering on a car or truck. Or you helped them tinker on their favorite vehicle and it made an indelible mark on your memory. Make sure you’re driving the right one to make your own memories in.

  13. Turn those heads!
  14. A new car or truck will definitely get your friends and neighbors interested in your purchase. Imagine yourself motoring along, wind in your hair, jamming out to your favorite song on the radio, and dare we say… singing along to the tune. What a fun time!

  15. Treat yourself
  16. Maybe you worked really hard last year and your employer paid you a bonus. Or maybe you’ve just been saving for something and you haven’t decided yet what it could be. Either way, you deserve a treat.

  17. With Drive, you can customize your loan
  18. One of the coolest parts of the Drive program is that after you’re pre-qualified, you gain access to our Budget Customizer, which will let you find the car you want and customize your loan terms to what you need.

  19. Newer safety and technological features
  20. When you buy a new or new-to-you vehicle, you could be upgrading your safety and technological features from your old ride. Safety and technology features update at a near-constant pace. If you’re interested in keeping you and your loved ones as safe and entertained as possible, you might consider upgrading to a new vehicle.

Drive can help you get pre-qualified for a new or pre-owned vehicle in about two minutes, and it won’t impact your credit score. Once you get pre-qualified, you can shop cars through participating dealer inventories and pick the one that’s right for you and your budget. Falling in love with a new car isn’t a hassle with Drive. It’s an experience. Find your road forward with Drive today.
