new car, phh insurancePurchasing a new car is always exciting but can be a little daunting dealing with the dealerships.  If you follow these suggestions by Edmunds, the car-buying process can be fast and enjoyable. But more importantly, you will have the satisfaction of knowing you got the car that’s right for you at an excellent price.

  • Find the True Market Value® of a car
  • Use incentives and rebates to save money
  • Learn a non-confrontational negotiating strategy
  • Eliminate extra charges in the Finance and Insurance (F&I) office

You should also decide how you’re going to pay for that new car. Will you:

  • Finance the car with a loan?
  • Lease the car?
  • Pay cash for the car?

Here are a few other questions to keep in mind when you begin your car-buying process:

  • Do you want a manual or automatic transmission?
  • Do you really need all-wheel drive?
  • What safety features are important to you?
  • Do you need a lot of cargo capacity?
  • Will you be doing any towing?
  • Do you require adjustable seating positions?
  • Will the car easily fit in your garage or parking space?
  • Sometimes, needs and wants don’t weigh all the factors that go into making a decision.
