Yippee!!! The one good thing about having my car totaled in a car accident last week is that I’m getting a decent settlement to buy a new car. And the weird thing is I wanted a new car, but couldn’t bear to shell out the money. Life works in mysterious ways…
Now the fun starts. I love to haggle, but somehow the thought of traipsing around to different dealerships and navigating through all the car dealers various ploys to separate me from my money makes me bone weary to even think about. The last time I went through this, my then race-car boyfriend got so annoyed with me that I ditched him. He hated that I wouldn’t budge on the dealer offer price of a car that HE wanted me to buy. The silly boy actually sided with the dealer to the tune of an extra $2500! Luckily, it was the perfect ploy to get rid of Mr. Car Racer.
So now I’m hunting around trying to figure out how to not get ‘taken’ and I found this website, which gives the top ten car dealer scams. AND tells you where and how to get the best financing. Cool.
If YOU have any good new car buying tips….feel free to share!
