The end of theÂ year can be an excellent time to buy a new car since dealerships are making room for next yearâ€™s models, and the following tips may help you make a purchase you wonâ€™t regret.
Do Your Research: What do you want in a vehicle? While you may have your heart set on a certain make and model, you might discover youâ€™ve been unduly swayed by advertising when you dig a little deeper.
Get Pre-Approved: Dealer financing may not always be the best way to go, but even if you do choose that route, shop around and get pre-approved from a credible financial institution. According to Edmunds.com, when you walk in with an approval, youâ€™re more likely to get a better interest rate.
Figure out What Itâ€™s Worth: Helpful resources, such as Kelley Blue Book (KBB.com) and Edmunds.com, can help you determine the going rate for any car before you enter the dealershipâ€”and knowledge is power!
Read Before You Sign: That sale is final, so read before you sign on the dotted line.
