Discover what dealers do not want you to know and save up to thousands of dollars when buying a new car.
So you've finally done it - you've passed your driving test and it's time to think about buying a car. This can be a daunting experience when you do it for the first time, but a little forward planning and knowledge in the right areas will go a long way towards making sure the whole process goes as smoothly as possible.
Firstly you need to think about the type of car you can afford to buy. We'd all like to get that brand new top-of-the-range model but in reality as a first time driver you will be restricted on what insurance companies will insure you to drive in those early days. It's also worth thinking about what you will need your car for. Is it for shopping trips once a week? Going to and from work every day? Are you going to be travelling long distances in it or simply driving around locally?
Find a car that interests you and hop in it. Adjust the seat and mirrors, and check leg room in each part of the car. Ask to take a test drive. Start out on city streets and then head out to the highway. Pay attention to steering ease, turning radius, braking response and acceleration. Adjust the mirrors and radio while you're driving to test convenience. Return to the dealership and thank the dealer. If you like the car, ask for a business card and say you will return later. Head to the next dealership and investigate other car models as described above. Ask dealers which car most closely resembles the one you previously test-drove, providing the make and model and explaining which features you liked. Test a number of models until you decide on a car, and compare these prices with those at other dealerships.

* Avoid setting your heart on one particular model or make. There are hundreds of excellent vehicles on the market, and becoming attached to one of them may make you less hard-headed in your bargaining.
