Do Some Research

To narrow down the choices of cars that you're considering for purchase, it pays to do some research and to learn as much about each vehicle as you can. The more you know, the better buyer you will be. So here are some valuable sources of information:

Manufacturers' Brochures
The brochures that you collected at the dealerships are a solid source of information for the new vehicles. Read them carefully. Compare the different equipment levels and option packages to see which is right for you. And don't be surprised if you find inconsistencies in the brochure with what the salesman told you. He may not be fully educated about the vehicles he sells.

Automotive and Consumer Magazines
Many automotive and consumer magazines regularly rate and review new cars and trucks. Some have reviews available for older models, too. Keep in mind that these reviews and ratings are merely the subjective opinions of the writers, so you may find some of the reviewers disagreeing with each other. Still, it's worth a look to see what they have to say:

U.S. Government Safety Publications
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has lots of valuable free information concerning the safety of the new cars including crash test results, child safety seats, seat belts and other safety related issues. You can view these free safety reports online by visiting the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website. You can also request these free reports by calling their Auto Safety Hotline at 1-800-424-9393.
