2. Don’t Rely on the Auto Dealer to Educate
When buying your first car, do not rely on the auto dealer or another third party to educate you about the car buying business. Although these efforts can appear “well-intentioned,” they are typically motivated by the seller trying to close the deal with your auto purchase. Before initiating a dialogue with a car dealership or third party for a car purchase, one should research the makes and models of automobile under consideration for purchase. Similarly, conducting financial research into auto loans to include your current bank and credit unions can pay big dividends when it comes to minimizing the monthly payment for one’s first car. These steps will also help keep the consumer from making a poor decision when it comes to that first auto purchase.
