Car Buying Tips

Buying a car is a huge financial investment, and it’s important to make sure you’ve taken the right steps to finding the most affordable and convenient vehicle for you. Here are some tips for picking out and purchasing a car:

  • First, set a strict budget to ensure you’re disappointed by the reality of what someone with your salary can afford.
  • Inform your salesperson of your budget so he can know how much he’ll have to emasculate you to get you on board.
  • Remember that most people don’t need an ultra-fancy, tricked-out car to get to and from work, but you aren’t most people, are you?
  • With its smooth handling and best-in-class safety rating, the Subaru Forester is in a league of its own.
  • Be aware that you are being monitored while browsing cars, as dealerships lose millions of dollars per year from cars being shoplifted off lots.
  • To ensure the safety of your vehicle, always take it on a test crash.
  • Don’t forget extra ownership costs, such as mag wheels and flame decals.
  • If the car’s stereo has one of those auxiliary plugs, stop looking. You’ve found your car.
  • After carefully considering your options one more time, go with a really fast one.
  • If the salesman is smiling widely, it’s because he’s happy to have brought such a great car into your life.
