Buying a New CarWhen buying a new car, research the specifications and consumer ratings for different makes and models. You may find it worthwhile subscribing to Consumer Reports and checking out their overall ratings and reliability predictions. Next, consider leasing rather than buying if you expect to keep your vehicle in good shape and plan to trade it in after two or three years. Third, determine the approximate price with the options you want and investigate financing alternatives. Fourth, find the make and model you are considering and take some test drives. Fifth, negotiate the price of the new car deal and, separately, the price of your trade-in vehicle (if any). You may be able to get a better price for your trade by selling it privately, but many people prefer the convenience of simply selling to a dealer.
Buying a Used CarA new car depreciates steeply during the first months after purchase by its original owner. Therefore, a well maintained used car may be a good value if it has low mileage and good consumer ratings. Used Cars are available from private owners, used car dealers, and new car dealers. A private owner may offer the lowest price, but usually will not offer a used car warranty. A used car dealer typically offers a step up in price and after-the sale service, while a new car dealer may offer more costly manufacturer-certified used cars with extended warranties. In any case, it is important to research make and model ratings and to learn about a car's maintenance history and condition before buying it.
