Aside from buying a house, purchasing a vehicle is one of the biggest investments made in a lifetime. Northtowne Auto group is offering a few tips for saving money on your next vehicle purchase.
To get the best deal on a car loan, check your credit score and research your options for the best loan. A coupe of places where you can obtain your credit score are Equifax.com and AnnualCreditReport.com. Prices may vary, depending upon the services you buy. After you have received your credit score, visit banks and credit unions to determine where you can get the lowest interest RATE. Having your loan options in hand when walking into a dealership can help you negotiate the best deals, and helps ensure you stay within your budget.
If you are planning on trading in your current vehicle, it is important to get an accurate appraisal. Kelly Blue Book (kbb.com) is a great website to estimate trade-in and private resale value of your car. Trading in your vehicle may be easier, but you will most likely receive a higher amount by selling your car privately. If you decide to trade-in your car to the dealership, tell the salesperson after you have agreed on a price of the new vehicle you plan to buy.
Many additional warranties overlap the manufacturer's warranty and force required maintenance. Often times, the cost to repair your vehicle during the initial warranty term would be less. Be sure to double-check the fine print on the terms being offered.
If possible, try to plan your purchase toward the end of the month. Auto salespeople generally run on a quota system, and you sometimes can get a better deal by buying at the end of the month.
Planning to purchase your vehicle in August through October can be a good idea as well, because it is the end of the model year. Car makers are cutting their prices on the current year's stock, and dealers are already searching for next year's models to put on their lot, so they may be open to more negotiations to get the current year's cars off the lot.
Never negotiate your monthly payment price. The dealer can adjust the interest rate or offer you a longer term loan to make any vehicle fit your budget. Either way, in the long run, they will be adding on to the total cost of the loan. A few percentage points or an additional year on your term can add thousands of dollars to the total cost of the vehicle.Northtowne Auto Group offers the best quality cars at an affordable price in the Kansas area.
