Buying My Car

Modest not ostentatious. A car that would blend in and not provoke envy.

"Where do you want your wealth to reside?" Not in a heap of tin and heavy metal that starts to depreciate as soon as I drive off the car lot.

"A car is an appliance," my sales representative says to me as he drives me to buy the car.

My credit score is 737. "Your credit walks on water," the business manager says.

It's a weird world, after all.

The warranty is $1,500 less because I belong to AARP.

  1. You simply have to be able say 'no, thanks at that price' at least once to the dealer. This gives them a strong message that you are serious about your research.

    You should also bring a piece of paper to the dealership and make sure you do all the math of the finance calculations yourself. The point is not that they will do the math wrong. The point is you will see exactly how the deal is structured. Do not be afraid to take the time to do this or look like a fool for mapping out your car deal in the dealership.
