An incredible notion struck me yesterday as I was driving down IH-35. I saw a sticker on the windsheild of a new Tahoe that read “$7,800 off” at the local Chevrolet dealership. Amazingly, it was just one of the many discount stickers covering the windshields of new Chevrolet models dotting the highway. Model after model, showroom after showroom, new car prices are coming down.
Look for a dealer who will get you a late model vehicle and not try to put you into some old beat up car that needs a lot of work. There are also programs that don’t require any money down. Don’t let the salesman tell you that you must have a big deposit to buy a car from him.
As soon as your debt balances are lower, work towards saving up to 20% of the vehicle’s cost for the down-payment. The reason you want to put 20% down is because cars typically depreciate about 20% the first year. If you put nothing down or very little on the Subaru you want, you will quickly get turned around in the first year. It is an easy way to get into a bind with your new vehicle quickly.
I was the victim of an injury causing MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT in 2005. What I learned about THE SYSTEM was very upsetting. I leaned that when an event like this happens THE VULTURES start to circle almost immediately. THE VULTURES include but are not limited to – insurance companies, medical service providers, rental companies, law firms, emergency transport companies, Approval Team Reviews and others. There are lots of people who seek to profit from your misfortune when you are involved in a motor vehicle accident. You do not want to be taken advantage off.
If you have poor credit and are considered a sub prime borrower you could pay as high as 19 to 28 percent for your auto loan, depending where you live and how bad your credit is. If you find yourself having to pay a higher rate of interest because of your poor credit, don’t get discouraged. This is only temporary. Once you get the loan, make your payments on time and keep your balances low, you can usually re-finance after one or two years for a better rate.
If you do not want to take the time to go to a Car Dealership, you may want to check out Mercedes Benz’s website itself to compare prices and models. This can help you get an idea of exactly what model is best for you. It will also allow you to find a Mercedes Benz within your price budget.
The last time we talked about this problem, I was on Jeep number seven, a 2007 Patriot Blue Jeep Liberty. Well, the little fella has been very good to me, getting better than advertised gas mileage and not needing a single cent in repairs since I bought it used a couple of years ago. In fact, except for routine maintenance, the only thing that needed replacing since I got it has been tires which were changed only a month and a half ago. It’s now got a tad over 70,000 miles on it and in Jeep parlance, we call that just broken in.
It is good if you personally visit the Indianapolis car dealer you are considering. By doing this, you will get a first-hand impression of the dealerships. You should observe their facilities and how the staff treats the customers. It will also help that you go to several dealerships. This way, you have more options.
