Three Tips For Getting A Great Price on Your Car

This is a sponsored post.  The opinions within this post are of my own.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

The sticker price on a car is often times not what you will actually have to pay.  If you play your cards right, you can get the price lowered.  Before heading to the dealership, arm yourself with tips and information on getting a great price on your car:

Research 

For starters, the most important tip of finding a car is performing the right research. You can’t make the right purchase without knowing the facts about the make, model and price of your car. Cars.com is a great resource to learning about your potential purchase. Their website has a huge selection of information that will provide you with everything you need to make an informed purchase. There, you will find expert reviews and videos, and car buying advice.  You can also look up vehicles for sale according to your search criteria.

Comparison Shop

Just because you see a car you like at one dealer doesn't mean you have to purchase it from there.  Take your time and visit more than one dealership.  Talk with the salespeople and get a feel for their techniques.  You'll also learn what the baseline price is for a particular brand or model, and will know where to go from there.


Educate Yourself

As I mentioned before, don't jump right into the pool when purchasing a vehicle.  Take time to learn the true value and worth of the cars you are shopping for.  There's more to buying a vehicle than just throwing down cash or signing the dotted line.  Keep in mind that that there may be rebates and financing incentives.  If you are trading in your vehicle, have an idea of what the trade-in value might be.  Know an estimated range of how much you want your monthly payments to be so you don't go in blindsided by a salesperson trying to show you vehicles that are above budget.
