Be Wary of Skipping an Important Step in the Car-Buying Process

Buying a car

Whether you’re young or old, one thing remains clear: buying a car or other automobile is a very exciting thing and in your head, you imagine what your life will be like upon being handed the keys and hopping into that new automobile. For some of you, that might be hitting the open road and sowing those wild oats, the wind in your hair and the sun in your eyes, maybe some good tunes on the Siriusxm radio and the belief in your heart that whatever you’re doing at that given moment is the best time you’re ever gonna have. Or the purchase is less youthful – maybe a minivan so you’ll have an easier time loading in groceries and kids. Maybe making soccer practice that much easier. Maybe making all the chores you do that much easier – because hey, it’s nice to drive around a bus especially for all the things you have to do.


We can all agree that buying a car is some pretty important stuff, and with such an important decision at stake, it’s vital that you have all the information you need. Usually, the best way to obtain such information is to go to a car salesman, but unfortunately, car salesmen are being bypassed a bit too often these days, if this Economist article is correct.


They write, “Technology is diminishing the role of car dealers, however, Customers are using the internet for much of the process of choosing a new car, and are increasingly getting loans and insurance online rather than buying them from the dealer who sells them their car..”


It’s a sad day when you realize you may be witness the last days of the guy in the funny suit in the car dealer’s lot, but is that really the way to go? Nothing beats face-to-face interactions and business dealings, and going to a local expert who can help you select the right car for your needs is still a prudent decision.


After all, buying a car is too important of a process not to have a face to face interaction with the person selling the vehicle. Don’t make a decision you’ll regret; instead, visit a reputable auto dealership.
