At the moment, I have more than enough cash (all in one hundred dollar bills) for the down payment. My question though, will cash be fine to use? Or since this is a professional environment, do they only accept cards, checks? Sorry if this is a rather dumb question, just want to make sure!

  • How do I go about buying my fist car?

    I already know I want a used car and searched on Autotrader, Cars.com, and Kelly Blue Book to find used cars in my area. What is my next Step? I have never gone through the process of getting car insurance. How do I get car insurance without even having the car? Also, I am paying the car off in full.

    So I'm 17 and I really love my car. I'm a huge car lover and it's basically my dream car, only difference is instead of a supercharged V8 it has it's base model V6 engine. I have a job and use it to pay my parents some money back for the lease, and I pay for gas and stuff, but they want me to save the majority of my money. I'm kind of hesitant to ask about buying my car because they've always hinted at wanting me to get a different car. By the time my lease is up I'll be over 18. Is it realistically possible that I could buy my car? I don't know the official buyout option on it but it's about a 30-32k car and I believe I have a 34 month lease. Not sure what the down payment was. Most people just say to buy a used version of this car with a bigger engine after my lease but insurance looks worse for an 18 year old with a RWD V8 In Michigan than it does with a V6 so I can't really do that. I've heard that it's good for your credit to make an investment at a young and I feel like buying my car would be a good start but I'm not sure if that's even a realistic start so I'm just looking for opinions/advice

  • If I buy a car from Washington state, do I have to pay sales tax? I live in Oregon?

    Best answer: Most states have a Reciprocal Agreement. This means that you do not pay sales tax in the state where you pur based, but you DO pay the sales tax in the state you use the car when you buy your license plate.

    CALL THE DMV to find out for sure.

    I traded in a car that I had paid off for a used Jeep at a Kia dealership in Daphne Alabama they ended up selling us a lemon which we did not know at the time but there was a hundred day limited warranty on the vehicle. Anyways I ended up having to take the Jeep to them three separate occasions in which they had the jeep 79 days out of the 100 days. Every time they would tell me it was fixed the problem was fixed I had to take it back to them the third time they actually kept it for almost 3 weeks. So we went up there with the same problem after the hundred days was up and they wanted us to pay for them to fix it so we argued that they sold us a lemon and we wanted to speak to a manager and have something done about this. They decided to try and put us in another car we would still have to pay so much of the g off and that would be added to the new car payment, but we would get a better car. They said before they can put us in another car they had to run our credit again. We were not told that we were going to be charged for them to run the credit anyways we didn't end up getting the vehicle because they would not let us test drive it and they expected us to just make the Switch & Go on our way. Well my grandmother just received her bank statement and they charged her $79.22 for them to run a credit check in which they already had our credit scores from before can they charge us for this?

  • What should I be aware of on used vehicles for sale on dealers? won't do private sellers?

    Best answer: You should be aware that the vehicle you're buying is used. Exactly how used will depend on each individual vehicle, but you should definitely remember why it's called a used vehicle. That means every used car is a gamble, no exceptions. The other thing you should be aware of is the many myths that... show more
    Best answer: You should be aware that the vehicle you're buying is used. Exactly how used will depend on each individual vehicle, but you should definitely remember why it's called a used vehicle. That means every used car is a gamble, no exceptions.

    The other thing you should be aware of is the many myths that people believe are true about dealerships and used vehicles. Here are but a few of them...

    Myth #1: If a trusted mechanic inspects the car and finds nothing wrong, you're safe. That one is BS because a mechanic will only do a quick inspection. They can tell you if anything is worn out right now or will be worn out in the next 30 days or so, but that's all they can do.

    Myth #2: Always get the Carfax (or similar report), because a vehicle history report is the final word on the history of that car. Cue the loud buzzer, because this one is totally wrong. There is no official authority on vehicle repair history, period. The only time the authorities get involved is if a vehicle was declared a total loss and / or rebuilt and re-certified, and that's all they'll tell you.

    Myth #3: You can buy the SE or the EX model of that car, but don't buy the S-EX version because it's classed as a sports car by the insurance companies. And don't buy anything red, because that costs more to insure. Again, wrong. There is no such thing as a red paint surcharge or a sports car classification with insurance companies. More expensive cars are more expensive to insure period, and a low-slung coupe with sleek lines and a ballsy motor always costs more than a minivan.

    Myth #4: Dealerships like to tamper with the odometers to inflate their prices. While I'm sure they would like to do that, the risks outweigh the rewards. Any mechanic (or registered dealer) can spot an altered odometer in about five seconds, because it's almost impossible to crack an odometer open without leaving really obvious evidence of tampering. It can be done, but the guys who can do it charge an absolute fortune for their skills. When a dealer is caught messing with odometer readings, they face serious criminal charges and their reputation is permanently destroyed. It's simply not worth trying, not for a few measly hundred or thousand bucks in revenue.

    Myth #4: A seller (private individual or registered dealer) always has to know and fully disclose any and all previous damage and or repairs to the vehicle. Way wrong. While people are expected to remember (and required to disclose) things like their vehicle being destroyed in a crash or flood, they aren't expected to remember every ding, bump and repair job.

    There are many more myths, but those are four of the most common.

    Best answer: No dealer will want to deal in 30 year old cars. They're pretty much worthless, if they still even exist.
