New Car Buying Tips – Step 1
Decide what type of vehicle you will need. Do you need a four-door sedan, or will a coupe serve your needs?

Go online, and compare the cars by type and size. There are several sites you can use: kbb.com, edmunds.com, motortrend.com, etc., to compare cars in the type and size you are considering.

Using the information you obtained from the above websites, narrow down your search, and select several makes of cars you are interested in investigating further. Some of these websites have a feature where you can compare the vehicles side-by-side; use this feature to help you make your selections.
New Car Buying Tips – Step 5
Build the prospective cars online. Beginning with a base price for the make and model you want, add options you will need, and determine a price for the vehicle. Some of these sites will even offer information on what the cars are selling for in your area. Many will help you connect with dealers, and offer online pricing.
New Car Buying Tips – Step 6
Locate dealers near you for the cars you are considering. You are now ready to actually go out and look at these cars, sit in them, and do a test drive. Selecting an automobile on paper is not the same as actually putting your hands on it and your foot on the accelerator. After deciding on the make and model of the automobile, it is time to shop for prices.
New Car Buying Tips – Step 7
Shop for the price you want to pay. You already have information on the cost of the vehicle; now you need to find the dealer who will be able to give you the best deal. Price is not everything; consider the reputation of the dealer – service after the sale is also important to consider. Sometimes, paying a few dollars more is well worth it. After all, the dealer must show a profit in order to provide service and stay in business. Also, if you are a member of Costco, Sam's Club, or BJs Warehouse, check out the service they provide to help you purchase a new car.
Enjoy the process and privilege of shopping for, and purchasing, a vehicle. Also, let your salesperson give you his sales pitch; sometimes, you will learn something you didn't know. And don't be too eager; let him work for his sale, and give you a competitive price.
