1. Be Prepared to Buy Quickly

Many businesses flush out old inventory during the Holidays! This is great for you because the pricing will be at the lowest point in the year. Once you enter a car lot (unless it is CarsMark) you are going to be pressured by Salesmen to make a purchase quickly. 

2. Research before you Visit the Car Lot


Again, once you enter a car lot, you will feel a lot of pressure to buy. Make sure you have researched the following before you visit:


  • What is your budget? How much can you afford? (Hint: Don’t forget to look at insurance too)
  • How am I planning on financing? (Hint: Check your credit score and plan on having a large down payment the worse your credit is)
  • What features do I need in a car?
  • What car offers my features and is in my price range?


    3. Take Advantage of Memberships


    Did you know that having one of the following memberships gets you special offers and discounts through TrueCar? American Express, AAA, USAA and many more offer great tools for car buying and special discounts for having your membership. 


    4. Shop Around

    Using TrueCar or CarFax, trusted Car Buying Partners, allows you to search for the best deals in your area! Utilize these to find the best deal.
