How to Buy a Car

If you want to learn how to buy a car the right way, you'll need to do your homework. Take the time to do some research about new and used options, schedule a few test drives, and you can walk away with an incredible deal.


Do your research ahead of time to avoid impractical impulse purchases. A convertible may be perfect for sunny summer days, but what about those brutal winters in Elgin, Streamwood, and Schaumburg? Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • Visit reputable sites like AutoTrader, Kelley Blue Book, and Edmunds for reviews.
  • Look for the invoice price for new models and recent resale prices for used models.
  • Stick to your budget, and only buy as much car as you can afford.
  • Remember to factor in insurance costs when determining your budget. Insurance costs are a major component of the overall cost of your new vehicle.
  • Consider a pre-owned car - With a gently used car, you don’t have to worry as much about depreciation.
  • Always test drive your short list of options.
