The Process of Buying a Car

By: khalid r mustaffa

Buying a car involves a financial decision that to some consumers is the biggest, or only second to buying a house. Having said that, whether you entering the market for the first time, or it has been a while that you bought one, you may be looking for directions on where to start, and how to approach the car purchase process. If this is the case, then you are reading the perfect article. Just like buying any other product, the more brainstorming accomplished, the more you are to be satisfied with your decision. The right brainstorming will lead you to car that would fulfill your needs for a long time, maybe even the whole ownership period. The full process involves many steps, I will be dedicating an article for each step.

The very first step is narrowing down your options. You need to analyze your needs, and lifestyle necessities. Hence, the best action you can take through the process is answering firmly to all the questions, starting with the list to follow.

*How important is fuel economy to me?
*Do I prefer Manual or Automatic transmission?
*How many passengers will be riding my car on consistent basis?
*What sort of safety features would I feel comfortable with?
*Do I have a preferred list of car makers?

Once you have answered the list of aforementioned questions, you are now prepared to use the power of the Internet to further narrow your options. You do not need to visit any dealership as of yet. For those cars that interest you, read into the specifications and consumer reviews. Furthermore, get an idea of the prices. Hence, this research may conclude that the cars in mind are above your budget.

The best weapon you will have to continue your research journey is a printout of every page you research, all organized in a folder. This folder now becomes your investment portfolio during the car shopping process.
