Buying, Selling, or Leasing a Vehicle

Buying a New Car

As with any other big-ticket item, it is important to do your homework—decide in advance what kind of car you need, and how much you can afford to spend. Think about size. Think about options.

Before you start pounding the pavement, check out some of the consumer-oriented publications that have information on cost, reliability, comfort factors, and other features of many cars. The Internet is also a great place to look.

Learning a bit about the law—and how you can protect yourself in this important consumer transaction—should also be part of your preparation.
