If you purchase a new car, you will probably be ready to leave the dealership with it, as soon as possible. After all, you might have already spent a lot of time at the dealership, while looking at different vehicles, negotiating a price, finding financing, filling out paperwork, and more. You might not want to spend any more time at the dealership than necessary, after you have been handed the keys, but there are a few things that you will probably want to do before you drive off. These are a few of them.

1. Have It Detailed

First of all, there is no reason for you to drive off the lot with a dirty car. After all, you probably want to show off your new car to everyone you know, and you probably do not want for it to be dirty, when you do so. Plus, if the car is dirty, then you might not spot any minor dings or scratches that you may notice, if the car was clean. Many dealerships have their own detailing shops and will be more than happy to detail the car for free, if you ask, so you may want to do so, before you leave with the car. With your shiny car, you'll be able to ford dealer properties, driving your new car in style.

2. Add It to Your Insurance Policy

Of course, the last thing that you probably want to happen when you leave in your new car is to get into a car accident. However, you never know when a car accident could happen, and it's important to make sure that you are covered. Therefore, you should contact your insurance company to add your new car to your policy. Depending on the insurance agency that you work with, you may be able to call and do this over the phone, or you might even be able to add a new car to your policy by logging into your account online. Either way, you'll want to make sure that you are covered, before you get behind the wheel.

3. Learn How Everything Works

Modern cars often have lots of features, and you should be able to take advantage of these features as soon as possible, after buying your car. Consider having a salesman show you how to use all of the car's features, and don't be afraid to ask questions. Then, you will know how to use all of the features of the vehicle that you have just purchased, and you won't have to worry about the frustration of figuring out how to make everything work yourself.
