Nebraska rests in the middle of America, and is composed primarily of ranches and farms. Naturally, this makes pickups and SUVs very popular choices when it comes to new vehicle purchases, but there are a number of other automotive options out there for car shoppers who know where to look. This article lists the best towns in Nebraska for finding a good number of different auto dealerships within easy driving distance, as well as some helpful information to ease you through the registration and titling process after you have chosen which new vehicle to purchase.
If you are buying a new car in Nebraska, then without question the capitalÂ of Omaha is the place to be. Omaha's impressive number of car dealerships make it the one-stop shop for all things automotive. The rest of the state sees its dealer lots spread out fairly evenly, although North Platte and McCook offer a bit more than average in terms of the different number of brands available for browsing.
Dealership workers in Nebraska will be happy to assist you with completing and filing the paperwork associated with a new car purchase. They will also roll the fees that must be paid to the state into the total price you have to pay before you leave the lot. The registration fees are based on the class, weight and value of the vehicle in question. In fact, Nebraska's registration and taxation system for vehicles is complex enough that the state has rolled out an online estimator application that can be found at the following website: http://www.nebraska.gov/dmv_cgi/vte/cgi/dmv.cgi.
The application takes into account the state's 5 percent sales tax, as well as any additional sales tax implemented by a town (up to a total of 7 percent). Finally, the estimate provided by the online service includes any wheel or use taxes charged by the county where the vehicle is to be registered. The estimate is not meant to be 100 percent accurate, but it should be very close to the amount you will have to pay after signing on the dotted line at the dealership.
