Start Your Car-Buying Journey the Right Way!

Buying a vehicle will require you to manage plenty of things. If you want to make smart choices as you go through your car-buying journey, getting pointers every step of the way is a must. You also need to plan to make sure that you end up with the right car for you.


Tips to Remember as You Shop for Your New Car

Purchasing a vehicle at some point in time is a given for most people. Before you start shopping for a new car, you’ll want to listen to some valuable advice. Breast Cancer Car Donations has compiled these car-buying tips to help you save money and get the best deal.

1. Research the car you intend to buy.

Before you even think about completing your vehicle purchase online or setting foot in a dealership, you need to do your research. If you already have a specific car model in mind, be sure to find out as much as you can about it. Some of the great places to check include and the Kelley Blue Book (KBB).

Are you buying a brand-new car? You’ll want to check out the car’s invoice price instead of the manufacturer’s suggested retail price. The invoice price refers to the price that the dealer paid the auto manufacturer for the car. You need this information once you start negotiating for the vehicle’s price.

However, if you’re planning to purchase a used car, you’ll have to look into that specific car model’s recent resale prices. Unless you have this information, you won’t have bargaining power.

On the other hand, if you’re thinking about trading in your current vehicle, you’ll need to check the specific model’s market value to get an idea about the value of your trade-in.

2. Take a closer look at your refinancing options.

Did you know that dealership interest rates are usually higher than loan rates from credit unions and banks? For this reason, it isn’t fiscally responsible for any person to obtain financing from the car dealership. Since you can obtain discounts from your bank or credit union, it’s best to start looking into car loan rates there.

You may use aggregators to obtain multiple financing quotes at once. Additionally, you may want to check your credit score to get an idea about the interest rate that you’re probably going to qualify for. If you got a low score, you may have to put your car purchase on hold while you’re working to pay off your outstanding debts and improve your credit.

Consider signing up for free programs such as Experian Boost so that you can boost your credit score derived from your Experian credit report. Once you’ve obtained a quote from a financial institution, you’ll have to get everything in writing. This quote can be presented to the dealership and you can use it to negotiate a lower interest rate.

3. Negotiate terms.

Purchasing a brand-new car is a big investment next to buying a house. When it comes to negotiating terms, you need to be straightforward by letting the salespeople understand that you won’t be taken for a ride. You’ll want to do whatever it takes to negotiate the car loan and knock the purchase price down.
