Buying a Car
Finding and buying the perfect car is not easy. There are many decisions to make and many colors to choose from. The price of course, have to be a decisive factor, as well as the amount of gasoline spent. The following guide will help you make a good buy.
1. Make a list of what you’re looking for in a car. Some of the important criteria are the following: appearance, performance, security, size, comfort, fuel efficiency, cost, resale value, transmission type, engine size, mileage (if you buy a used car) and the color.
2. Organize the list in terms of the importance of different criteria for you. Perhaps more important for you be sure that the appearance of the vehicle or vice versa.
3. Make a list of the models that best fit what you’re looking for.
4. Perform a search for your favorite models in the various car dealerships in classified ads, and online.
5. Select a dealership. Once you find one that meets your needs, select a vendor.
Check out the different financing plans available (in case you need one) directly to your dealer and your bank.
Make a test drive in order to make sure if it’s worth buying. Check out details like the engine sound, cup holders (if they are important to you), magazines, the comfort of the seats, stereo, etc..
When you visit a dealer, do it along to your spouse or friend. In this way you will be treated more seriously than if you show up alone.
Be sure to read the full purchase agreement and the financing (if you buy on credit). Do not sign anything unless you understand exactly what you’re signing. If you’re not sure you fully understand the contract, take it to a lawyer or a friend of yours that I can guide about it.
In the case of buying a used car, always ask yourself if the car you’re buying is worth the money you are being asked to change. If not, make a lower offer, and if they refuse, do not worry, there are many more cars for sale.
