Helping Grandma and Grandpa Buy a New Car

This is a partnered post with Cars.com. 


My parents are in the middle of looking for a new mini van and they really didn't know where to start. Their very old but very reliable van broke down after years of use and over 200,000 miles!  Crazy.  My parents are retired but watch our kiddos for us while we work, so blessed!  So, this why they are in the market for another mini van, it is a great vehicle for their grandparent field trips.

Once it was decided that they wanted a new mini van my mom did a ton of research on which make and model they would be searching for.  Comparing stats and safety and after awhile it was decided.  A Honda Odyssey would be their new car!  Sure, that is exciting but who wants to start that search? Car dealerships can be overwhelming and so pushy, makes it hard to think! Goodness knows these are not small purchases so you must have time to think.  

Enter Cars.com!  When you log on to Cars.com you are immediately given the opportunity to start searching for your next car in your surrounding area.

Since my parents have decided on the Honda Odyssey in a 2015 or newer model we were able to easily search for a their new van!  I was surprised that we had over 30 options in our area.  So simple.  Now that they could look over those 30 options we were able to narrow down which dealership to visit.  And with the knowledge of the car options at the dealerships we feel way more prepared to help my parents make this huge purchase.  

Buying a car does not have to be stressful.  Using Cars.com to assist you in this purchase allows you to be more educated and informed on the cars available.  Love that!

  3. I have to say that I've never actually tried Cars.com. I've heard a lot about them though. We just bought a car and now wished we'd at least looked into them. Thanks for this though. I know there could be opportunities in the future!
