Find The Best Available Car To Buy

I have seen that most people have a problem with finding the best car for their needs when they are looking to buy. Often times this is caused by salesmen that talk the customer into more car than they really need or more than they can afford. The reason this happens is the customer does not have a clear view of what they want and what they can afford. They end up with something they don’t want, whatever available car there is, instead of the best car available for their needs.

Before you ever step foot on a car lot you should be looking for cars and prices online and in the newspapers. This will give you a very good idea of the cost for different kinds and sizes of cars. You will need to really decide what it is you need as opposed to what you want. For example, maybe you want a big one ton pickup in order to go camping a couple of times in the summer. This would not really be worthwhile if you are driving an hour and a half or two hours a day. Your fuel expense would be so much that you would never be able to justify driving this big of a vehicle. Instead, you should look for a gas efficient car and then modify your camping needs for the couple of times you go. For example, maybe you rent a small trailer for the weekend when you are camping.

You also should look at the drive train of the car. By this I mean, is it a manual or an automatic transmission. A manual transmission sounds fun because you can pretend to be a race car driver but the shifting gets old in a very little time. Even if the only available cars were manuals I would not buy one because I got so tired of shifting. It used to be that automatics were not as reliable as manual transmissions but that has now changed as the years have gone by. I wouldn’t worry about getting a car with an automatic transmission for that reason. They are a little more expensive but it is worth it in my opinion.

Determining all these facts about what car you want is important before you go to the car lots to start negotiating. If you don’t have a clear picture of the car you need then you will be subject to intimidation by the salesman and you may be forced into what ever available car they have even if it is more than you need or want.

Remember, a car salesman is out to get your money. They don’t car what you want or need, they only care about how much commission they will get.
