When buying a car, you need to figure out what you’re looking for first. How much of a budget do you afford? How many people are you need the car to seat? What mileage are the miles per gallon that you interested in? Do you want a coupe or a family vehicle? Make sure to jot down all the things that you want your car.
You can save a lot of money by doing some research online. Once you know which vehicle you like, you can go there to test it, or you can have them just buy the car for you. If the dealership that has the vehicle is not too long of a drive, then drive to the dealership offering the car in order to save money.
What do you want out of your new car? What are you willing to spend? How many do you need the car to seat? What are the miles per gallon that you desire? Do you want a four door vehicle or something a bit smaller? Get it all down on paper, and bring it with you when shopping so that you don’t forget.
Figure out the financing before you even look at a car. You should do this through your local credit union or bank. You might get a lower interest rate and you will know what you can afford.

Call the bank to see if you can get the financing ahead of your purchase. This is simply for your own safety. Usually the finance department at the dealership can find you a better rate than your bank, but it can help if you find what interest rate you’re looking at prior to shopping.

Financing needs to be in place before you arrive on the lot. The reason a car takes so long to get is because they need to look at your credit while securing a lender for you. It will be much quicker if you have a loan ready.
Do not reveal that you have a trade-in right away. Wait to mention a trade-in until after you have a firm deal on the sales price of your new vehicle.
