2. Get Smart
How much can you afford?
Take control of your finances ahead of time by finding the best car for your budget. Decide whether you will buy or lease, how long you plan on owning your car, whether you will trade or sell your old car, and of course – know your credit score in advance by going to a credit monitoring site like freescoreonline.com.And for help compiling a list for cars tailored to your financial situation, you can educate yourself by finding the price on KBB.com, AutoTrader.com or Edmunds.com.
3. Get Prepared
Find the right dealer.
Finding the right dealer is just as important as finding the right car, especially when you consider 6 out of 10 people buy a different car than the one they came in for.
