Bargain on a Car?

Dave explains the best way to get a bargain on a car.

QUESTION: What are the best ways to get a good deal on a car? Are there some things I should know?

ANSWER: The 3 keys are knowing where to buy, being patient, and being flexible with the features.

If you’re trying to buy a car that retails over $20,000, you need a car broker to bid that out at a whole sale auction.  If you’re buying a car $20,000 or under, you can buy it from an individual.  This takes patience though.  Most people become impatient or they want a customized car.

You can also get a good deal from a used-car dealer, but you probably will not get a $23,000 car for $16,000.
