How to Avoid Auto Fraud - Helpful Hints on Buying a Car

 

Buying a car is one of the most important decisions a consumer will make.  Some quick car buying tips that might be helpful as you purchase your next car: 

  1. Before you visit a dealer, line up good financing through your local bank or credit union.
  2. Before you negotiate the price of a new car, check for price information at websites like Edmunds.com and Kelley Blue Book.
  3. Never tell the dealer how much you are willing to spend per month, instead negotiate a fair cash price for the car.
  4. Negotiate the price of the new car first, before the dealer evaluates how much you will get for your trade.
  5. Keep negotiations separate and beware of a monthly car note that hides the price of the new car and what you are getting for the trade-in.
  6. On used cars, always get an independent expert inspection before you buy.
  7. Check your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) history at vehiclehistory.gov or a Car Fax history report.
  8. Test drive the vehicle and examine it closely for signs of prior damage.

If you ever buy a used car, insist on the title being presented to you at the time of sale.
