Re: Car Buying Advice?
All of the above is great advice and I second/third/fourth it. A couple other things:
- Never trade in a car. Sell it yourself. It's not that hard and I guarantee you'll get a *much* better return.
- Don't tell them about the GM discount till you've negotiated a price you want.
- Be prepared to walk away and not buy a car now. I've wanted a new car, did all my research, decided on a fair price, didn't get it from any of the dealers, and ended up just not buying the car and postponing it all.
- I've bought the CR new buyers kit for the car I wanted (not for 2 or 3 cars I was looking at, just the one I wanted). I think it was worth it but I'd have to go back and look at the information.
