Buying a car, used or brand new, can be a stressful experience for anyone. Buying a car is a major life decision that should be entered into with caution. It is important to know certain information so you are not taken advantage of, and have an idea of what you want/do not want before starting this process. No matter if you are buying a new or used car, you should prepare yourself ahead of time so you get the best deal.
If you are trading in your old car, make sure you know the value of it
Trading in a car for a newer car is a great way to lower your car payment. Make sure you look on Kelley Blue Book for the value the car you are trading in. When you get to the dealership, the dealership will take your car, and give you an offer for it. If their offer is higher than what you expected, great! If not, you should bring up the Kelley Blue Book price and discuss the dealership’s current offer.
