Deal Information Sheet
Once you've found a vehicle or vehicles you are interested in buying at Yahoo! Autos get your online quotes. You'll see this alone will save you quite a bit of money with little work.
Once you have your quotes you'll then want to:
Let the dealer make you an offer and either negotiate your best deal or simply gather as much information about the offer as you can.
Once you've gathered that info, see if you can:
If you've already negotiated your deal, then double check that you have most, if not all, of the info below. Ask the dealer to print you a contract if possible.
The more information you can give me here the easier it is for me to help you. If you don't have some of this information, that is okay, but know that the less information I have the harder it is for me to give specific and more accurate advice.
FYI: I always recommend an independent third party inspection prior to buying a used vehicle. You can also learn some inspection tips in my Used Car Inspection Guide.
Once you've gathered this information share it here: Deal Recap Form
I will then use the information and the information you've previously provided to review your deal to let you know where I think you are at with the dealers offer.
