Buying a car, any hints or tips to ensure I don’t make any mistakes?

I’m in the process of buying a new car, most likely a Fiat Punto, from Auto trader. Although I’m fairly sure I know what I’m doing and what to look out for, because I’ve never personally bought a car before I wouldn’t be surprised to discover that there’s something important I’ve missed out on. So any helpful advice? Any common mistakes I need to avoid?

Have a mechanic you trust look under the hood and under the car for problems before you buy one.

I am about to buy a new car. Any tips on haggling?How much can I realistically expect to knock off the price?

catfishexpert answers:

With 10 years in the business, I can tell you the best way to haggle when it comes to buying a vehicle. First things first, the research. Look on the internet for the model you want. When you arrive at your local dealership, be open and honest with the salesperson and tell them at this point all you want to do is test drive the car. Most salespeople will simply allow this to transpire, and attempt to have you come inside and work out a price. Do not follow the salesperson. Tell them that you are in the final phases of selecting a model, but that you don’t want to get into pricing right now. If they won’t let you test drive, MOVE ON, LEAVE THE DEALERSHIP. When you are able to test drive, and you realize that this is the vehicle you want, go home. Get on the internet, and go to whatever manufacturer’s website of the model you want. (If you were looking at a mustang, go to www.Ford.com, etc.) There are always places on their that state, get a quote… When you do this, they will ship the information to area dealerships, whomever gives you the lowest price, go there. When internet leads would come into the dealership, as a manager, I would always give a price at or below invoice simply to earn the business. I was in a rural area, so leads were hard to come by. This will depend on the model, but, all in all, it will allow you to haggle with numerous dealerships at once, sitting in the comfort of your home. Good luck.

how to buy a new car???
this is my first time to buy a new car, I would like to know if you can give me some tips on how to deal with sales man – delaer…..

catfishexpert answers:

Buying new

First, go to your bank or credit union and prequalify for a car loan or apply online. That tells you how much car you can afford and what type of monthly payment you will have to budget.

Buy your new car from a no-haggle dealership. In most cases, you’ll save money and the process of buying will be faster and easier.

Look at cars when a dealership is closed, so there’s no salesperson to pressure you.

The best way to test-drive a car is to rent it for a day or two. It’s the ultimate test drive and it’s not expensive.

Use the Internet to find out the dealer cost of the vehicle and the options you want. Update!

Start your research with at least two different vehicles in mind. Then check out the price, reliability, and cost to insure each of the cars you’re considering.

When you’ve narrowed the search to one or two vehicles and have the actual dealer cost for each, shop online for instant price quotes.

If you prefer not to buy online, use the online price quotes as a guideline and call the dealers to see if they’ll match the price quote.

If you choose to negotiate with a traditional car dealer, be prepared for a difficult process.

When you go into the dealer to sign the paperwork, make sure what is on the purchase agreement is what you’ve agreed to previously by phone or fax. If it’s not the same, do not go through with the deal.

The best way to protect yourself in a dealership is to be willing to walk out.

Buying Used
• Arrange your financing first
• Check Consumer Reports’ listings of car models that have performed well. Don’t buy any car on the magazine’s list of used cars to avoid
• Find out what you should pay by checking prices at edmunds.com or kbb.com, or ask a friend to look for you.
• Have a used car inspected by a diagnostic mechanic, to see if it’s been wrecked or has any major defects.
• Pay for a report on the car at carfax.com. It’s worth it.
• Don’t buy from an old-style used-cars-only lot.
