You undoubtedly have heard the old saying, “A little goes a long way.” A little bit of knowledge goes a long way in all situations in life and car buying is no different! If you are in the market for a new car, you need to read advice and gain from car buying experts. I want to ensure when you shop for that car, you really know what you're doing and how to get the best deal. Read on!


  • Create a budget – In order to determine the type of car you can afford; you need to establish a budget before you go car shopping. It’s important to have a good idea of what vehicles are in your price range. Once you have created a budget for a new car, try your best to stay within that budget. If you must go over, make sure the amount that you go over is not so significant that it puts you in a financial bind. This should be a positive experience and nothing deflates that more than being stressed and financially strapped.
  • Have a plan – Great deal makers always think ahead when making a purchase. Car buyers should plan ahead as well. Have a few specific models in mind before you head out to a car dealer. Do your homework and find the best car for your needs and wants. Do not make the mistake of buying a car without thinking about practical future use. Buying a sports car will not make much sense if you are planning to have a family anytime in the near future.
  • Ask for reviews – The best way to get real information you can trust is to ask someone you trust. Ask your friends or family about the type of car in which you’re interested. Are they pleased with their own vehicles? How well would they say the car has held its value? Have they heard anything interesting about that particular car? When you're looking to buy a car, this is a good way to get some initial information.
  • Research your financing - If you want a new car, contact the bank first to see if you qualify for a loan. This is just for your own security. Normally a dealership can give you a better interest rate than a bank.
  • Do all your homework - Before you even walk out the door to go to the different dealerships to search for an automobile to purchase, do your homework. If you have a specific car make and model that you are considering buying, do some background research. Have there been numerous recalls for this vehicle? What do current and former owners of this make and model say about their automobile?
