Buying a Car Online | Clifton, NJ

There are many advantages to visiting a car dealership when you are researching your next vehicle purchase. In addition to being able to test drive different models, you’re also able to get a sense of the personality of who you will buy from, and you get to take advantage of the vast knowledge of the sales staff.

However, the process can be time consuming. Garden State Honda knows your time is valuable, and we want to make this process as pain-free as possible. That’s why we offer an easy online buying process.

4-Step Buying Guide:

1.   Browse Upgrades

Click the “Buy Online” button on any vehicle to begin the sales process. Safeguard your new purchase and avoid unexpected and costly repairs by choosing protection packages for your vehicle. You can also add on popular products such as GAP insurance, extended service contracts, and more. 

2.   Estimate Trade-In

Have a vehicle to trade in? We use Kelley Blue Book to value the trade of your leased or owned vehicle and get you an instant estimate, which can then be applied to your purchase.

If you don’t have a vehicle, simply select the “No trade in” option.

3.   Choose Payment Options

Design a payment that’s right for you with the payment calculator tool. First, select between financing, leasing, or paying cash in full for your vehicle. You can then adjust the terms of your monthly payments, down payment, lease or finance term, and mileage (if applicable) to a plan tailored to you. Then enter your billing information, income information, credit information, and co-buyer information, if applicable.

4.   Review Your Order

Finally, review your order to ensure all the details and information you entered is correct. Click “Order” to complete. Your order will be sent to the dealership, where upon approval we’ll complete the transaction. You’ll receive an email confirmation shortly afterwards containing your purchase details.

Frequently Asked Questions

When can I test drive the vehicle?

Your purchase is always subject to your approval of both the vehicle and the transaction details.

Pick out the car you want and use the Buy Online shopping cart to make sure it fits your budget. Your completion step will include the option to pick up the vehicle. Whether you complete your test drive in advance or do it as a final step, you'll always drive the vehicle prior to finishing the delivery process. 

Can I call someone to assist me with the buying process?

Absolutely! You can call us at 973-777-1600 and request to speak to a manager.  The manager will work up your deal right over the phone!

Is delivery available if I live or work far away?

No – Currently we do not have the capacity to accommodate this request.

Am I required to give a deposit or make a down payment to complete my purchase or lease arrangement online?

No. You can complete a purchase or lease arrangement online without money down. Many of our customers choose to do financing or leasing with no money at all. In the event you decide to use a down payment, you can do that at delivery and our staff will guide you through payment options.

How does the trade-in of my old car work?

We use the third-party independent valuation calculator provided by Kelley Blue Book. You'll enter your vehicle info and select "Very Good", "Good" or "Fair" based on the description of each condition. You'll immediately be presented with the actual cash value of your trade-in that you can apply to your vehicle purchase or lease. Prior to delivery - our Vehicle Specialist will confirm your trade-in details. We'll verify the amount owed (if applicable). Our experience has been that our customer's trade descriptions and the calculated values are quite accurate. We'll inspect your vehicle either prior to or at delivery. Our customers are generally good about letting us know of any concerns so that we can make sure the transaction meets expectations. If for any reason the Actual Cash Value offered for your trade-in appears inaccurate or if you have any questions, please let us know and we'll review the details for you. A final trade in value must always include a vehicle inspection by one of our trained professionals before a final cash value can be reached.

What about financing, rates and terms?

When you select a credit-score range, you immediately see your payment, rate and term. We have dozens of lenders and programs that compete for your business. Once submitted, we find an approval that works for you. Buying online doesn’t always ensure your automatically approved however. Approval is validated by the banks after the specific information you provided is submitted.
