Bring the Lot to You
Twenty years ago, finding up-to-date information on vehicles involved wading through magazines, books and fliers. However, the internet has become a one-stop solution for nearly all your vehicular-research needs. There is a wealth of useful car information online and taking advantage of that information is fundamental to your car-buying experience.
Remember that list of your driving needs? It’s time to find the car that fulfills them. Edmunds.com, CarBuyingTips.com and Intellichoice.com offer thorough online-buying guides, finance information and reviews. Trustworthy magazines like Consumer Reports , Car and Driver and Automobile Magazine maintain a strong online presence as well. Once you’re confident in your vehicle choices, Edmunds’s online True Market Value (TMV) application will help determine its market value, giving you a solid figure for negotiations later.
Dealing online can save you time and money, but be certain you’re dealing with trusted sites. It’s important to remember that online dealers are still salespeople and should be treated accordingly.
DID YOU KNOW? There are nearly 600 million passenger cars in the world today. That’s almost one for every 10 people on earth.
