Car Research

No matter whether you buy a new, used or lease a car, you do not want to overpay.  You also need to check out the safety ratings
http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov , and information on gas economy  http://www.fueleconomy.gov.  Also check out the following websites: http://www.invoicedealers.com; http://www.edmunds.com; http://www.jdpower.com/autos; http://www.cars.com/go/index.jsp; http://autos.yahoo.com; http://www.myride.com; http://www.carsdirect.com/home.  These sites also have good tips on buying a car: http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/index.htm?loginMethod=auto and http://www.carbuyingtips.com.



Once you’ve completed your research and know what a "good deal" is, then you can start to shop, the fun part.  Bring along all your pricing information so you can make sure your local dealer is offering "a good deal".
