When you decide which car to buy, it may be tempting to get it on the road as soon as possible. Don’t cut any corners.

Before you agree to the deal and drive off:

  • make sure you know exactly what you are paying for
  • think about the total running costs of owning a car
  • consider any financing decisions carefully.

To protect yourself and your new car, fulfil your legal requirements with NZ Transport Agency and consider insurance options within the first couple of days after purchase.
