If you’re like the majority of car buyers, you may not relish the thought of buying or leasing your next car. It’s not easy to shop in a dealership without feeling pressured, and there are hidden costs to buying online with a car buying service. How can you protect yourself? A car buyer’s agent just may be the hero you need.
If you’ve ever bought a car, you probably know how difficult it is to negotiate for all the features you want AND get a good deal. Even the most reputable dealers will try their best to upsell you on options and services to increase their profit. And they don’t want you to know that some of the most popular pricing deals aren’t necessarily in your favor. Also, within a deal, while some items aren’t negotiable, others definitely are. Knowing the secrets of vehicle deals can work to your advantage when you’re negotiating your lease or purchase.
When you search for car-buying services, you’ll see lots of options, including CarGurus, TrueCar, Cars.com, and Costco. These auto-buying companies are very aggressive in gaining your business, but they’re much less aggressive in protecting you from bad deals.
Dry rot on your vehicle’s tires is a safety hazard that doesn’t receive enough attention. It goes without saying that when your tires have worn out to the point that you have little to no tread left, it is time to buy new tires. This is common sense; it’s an obvious hazard. What is less evident—but just as dangerous—are dry, rotted tires.
