Car buying tip #4: Budget. Budget. Budget
Knowing how much you can shell out and sticking to it can help you in negotiating for a better price. This is one car buying tip that most buyers forget. Remember, dealers can sense your indecision and may not give you best price that they have in house.
Car buying tip #5: Secure your finances
Car dealers are not only ones who can offer great financial deals. You can get a loan from your bank or even from online lenders like Capital One Auto Finance and E-loan.
Car buying tip #6: Consider trade-in
When you have an old car and you will not be using it anymore, consider trading it in to lessen costs of other car. Figure its trade-in value and start from there. Some dealers accept trade in but oftentimes, you can get a better deal selling your old car privately.
Car buying tip #7: Allow for a time leeway
Buying a car at last minute will not only cut off possibilities of doing research and waiting for better deals but it will also make you quite desperate to buy one. Desperation in any car dealers’ book equals high costs.
Car buying tip #8: Ask for rebates and rewards
When you pay in cash, car dealers offer special discounts, rebates or rewards. Make sure that you ask your car dealer about them as some can “conveniently” forget about them until after you are out door.
