  • Getting the Best Deal on a New Car

    • Know what options you want on a car and how much you are willing to spend.

    • Don’t let the salesmen talk you into a more pricey car.

    • Don’t buy such things as fabric protection, paint sealant, rust-proofing, or an extended warranty.

  • Financing a New Car

    • Research the costs of auto loans at banks and other financial institutions before going shopping.

    • Look at the annual percentage rates that places offer.

    • Consider how much of a down payment you can afford. The more you put down the lower the amount you have to borrow.

    • Don’t buy a life insurance policy with the car from the dealership.

  • Used Cars

    • Automobiles depreciate quickly or lose their value.

    • The new car you drive off the lot today will be worth half what you paid for it in 3 years.

    • A used car has already depreciated and it will cost you a lot less money to buy.

    • Dealerships, rental and leasing companies or even individuals sell used cars.

  • Used Cars

    • Ask for the service records of any used car that you may be considering.

    • If the owner does not have the service record, then you need to walk away from it. The car is not going to last if it is not taken care of.

    • Any car that averages more than 15,000 miles/yr has experienced an excessive amount of wear and tear.

  • Used Cars

    • Arrange for an independent mechanic to look over the car before you buy it. A family mechanic would be a good person to turn to.

    • Look at the Blue Book Value to see if the price of the car is close to what it really is worth. {Kelly Blue Book}

  • Avoiding High-Pressure Tactics

    • Car salesmen are very good at selling cars – consumers have less experience at buying cars.

    • Tips:

      • 1. Be prepared – Know what you want, what you don’t want, and obtain bids based on the invoice.

      • 2. Don’t be talked into options you don’t want.

      • 3. Don’t discuss trade-ins until after you have settled on a sale price.

      • 4. Don’t be pushed into a decision quickly. Take your time.

      • 5. Get everything in writing.
