New car buying isn't relegated to the smart shopper anymore. Why? The internet. When I was looking for a new car many years ago, my very first step was to go to a certain dealership that I always passed by while boarding the bus. I was eyeing a very nice looking, late model imported car. I didn't want a used car. Naturally, I knew absolutely nothing about buying a car.
I went with my brother-in-law who was willing to co-sign for me. He was also more knowledgeable than I was about cars and dealing with car salesmen. I found the car that I wanted and my brother-in-law haggled with the car salesmen about the price. The first thing that the salesman asked was "How much monthly payment can you afford?"
Seems like an innocent question. But many years and several cars later, that question was always the first question that every salesman asked me. It never dawned in me that it's a ploy. The main purpose of the car salesman is to get as high a commission that he could. And of course, car dealerships are out there to make money. It's only natural for them to get you to buy a car which is more than you can afford. And through the years, it seemed like I always got a rotten deal.
Thanks to the internet, information about new car buying unlike of old is available with an internet connection. And yes, the car buying landscape had changed immensely. The internet had opened avenues which seemed incomprehensible just 10 years ago. We now can do Car Comparisons - Car Pricing Comparison, Warranty Comparison, Option and Feature Comparisons.
Vehicle pricing can be complicated and sometimes confusing. But car prices are published online which provide no-haggle, no-hassle pricing and delivery information on the vehicle of your choice. Warranty comparisons provide you with the best options available depending on the car's make and model.
Let new car buying become an easier task for you. We have more access for example to stated Invoice Price which are published online. Invoice Price is what the manufacturer charges the dealer, plus any standard (required) option packages. List Price is the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) plus any standard (required) option packages.
