Some of the Most Important Auto Buying Facts to Remember when Shopping for Your Next Car

Determine the amount of money you are going to spend for an auto.
Choose the auto(s) you are able to buy.
Keep in mind the amount you’ve decided to spend, specify the sum you’re ready to pay for an auto.
Get ready to answer some questions about the sources you are going to use for advance payment while buying an automobile. If you have to pay a down payment then take 20% from the amount (in dollars) you’re going to spend for an auto – the rest should be available for advance payment.
Requirements for payments depend on your current credit history. If you receive a direct auto loan through the Internet, this lender won’t require a down payment from you, on the other hand fixed indirect auto lending usually requires advance payments.
Use the Internet to learn what will be visible to auto lenders viewing your credit history when making a decision whether to give you a loan or not.
If necessary, you can also get a review of your credit and if you think some changes are required, just postpone your purchase for a period of 30 to 60 days to clear your credit from inaccurate information.


Some notes for car buyers
– Start choosing the car according to its main characteristics (value, price range, need)
– Compare a car you want to buy with other brands and models from the same category.
– The most popular cars often have the worst customer support.
– The new, more expensive cars are not always better.
– If necessary, evaluate the value of the car, its beauty and status which it brings to you.
– When buying a second-hand car compare the retail and wholesale price of the car you’ve chosen.
– When buying a new one check its true market value.
Before going to an auto dealer check for direct auto loans on the Internet.
If you are approved by the direct lender via Internet, you become a desired and stable consumer for a car dealer.
Being a stable (cash) consumer allows you to not use your Social Security Number in negotiations with auto-dealer when buying the auto.


Being a stable (cash) consumer you have a right to conclude a “One-Pay Contract” in case you’re approved by one of numerous direct lenders.
If you’re not approved by direct lenders, “indirect” dealers also offer good alternatives if you have the knowledge necessary for approaching the auto-dealer and understand your financial capabilities in full extent.
