We at Johnsons of Kingfisher want to help you make a well-informed decision when purchasing a new vehicle. That's why we put together an in-depth guide that contains everything you need to know about some of the best vehicles we carry.

What to Look for When Shopping for a Vehicle
The following are just some of the important things to consider when shopping for a new vehicle.

Think About Your Needs
Before you go looking for a new car, think about the following questions--What do you need your vehicle for? How much space do you need? Do you have a large family to drive around? Will you be hauling cargo? Answering these questions can help you get a vehicle to address your needs. Usually, smaller vehicles offer better gas mileage. However, if you have a big family or often haul things around, having more space should outweigh the benefits of good MPG. Many individuals fancy a hotrod with a powerful engine, while others just want something safe and reliable.

Consider Your Budget
It is imperative to figure out how much you can safely spend on a new car without putting yourself in a bind. Some people make the mistake of buying a vehicle that goes way beyond their means and ends up with regrets later. At Johnsons of Kingfisher, we want you to be happy with your purchase with no regrets. That's why we make our vehicles affordable, so you can get the car, truck, or SUV you really want. If you find something you just got to have, but it isn't really in your price range, come talk to us. We may be able to work out a solution to help you get whatever you desire. Keep in mind we have financing options available that allow you to make monthly payments to fit your budget.

Features You Would Like to Have
Cars, trucks, and SUVs today are loaded with features and every year new or enhanced features are introduced. While every vehicle has a myriad of features, benefits, and capabilities, some may provide you with more value than others. It's up to you to decide which is more important to you. Some features you may see in newer models include heated seats or steering wheel, power adjusted seats, several USB ports, satellite radio, keyless entry or remote start, a variety of different infotainment systems with diverse sound and speaker systems, various lighting with multiple controls, various types of sunroofs, and a whole bevy of safety features.  

Safety and Reliability
Everyone wants a car that's safe, reliable, and affordable. For some people - especially those with small children - safety takes priority over everything. If safety is your top priority, there are four main factors to consider: vehicle weight, crashworthiness, safety equipment, and vehicle center of gravity. There are two online databases that allow you to check and compare vehicle safety ratings, the NHTSA and the IIHS. You can also check the safety ratings for each vehicle we have available in our guide. Vehicles today are equipped with numerous safety features, including dual-front airbags, rear parking sensors, reversing cameras, panic braking signal, speed sensing door lock, lane departure warning, seatbelt pre-tensioners, pedestrian auto emergency braking, impact sensing door unlock, electronic stability control (ESC), and more.

Fuel Efficiency
Some cars are extremely good on gas, while others are considered gas guzzlers. If you do a lot of driving, you might want to look for a vehicle that gets good miles per gallon (MPG). As of 2020, the average vehicle MPG was 25.7. That was up from the 24.9 average MPG in 2019. Keep in mind there is a trade off with the price for more MPG. The better the gas mileage, the higher the price of the vehicle will be. Therefore, aim for something between 25MPG and 35MPG, like the 2021 Jeep Cherokee Latitude that gets 31MPG on the highway.
