3. Do Your Research
It's important to do your homework on the car you need. Check out all the brands that interests you and pay attention to the different car models. Review special features and colors, and narrow down your choices. It's also a great idea to check with your insurance agent how much your policy will change by adding the vehicle you want.
4. Get Proper Financing
Unless you are going to pay for your car in full online, you'll need some type of financing. "Getting pre-approved on a loan can help you stay within your budget when you start shopping online for your car. Ask your bank for its interest rates, but also research credit unions, alumni associations and professional organizations that you’re affiliated with which might offer better rates."
5. Trade In Your Car
"Does the site you picked provide an option to trade in your current vehicle? If so, negotiate its value with a sales representative. This will help you defray the cost of the car you’re buying online." Make sure you know your car's current value so you don't settle for less than what it's worth.
6. Make The Purchase
Review all the information you have and make your purchase! If you still don't confident about buying your car online, call the dealership about sending current pictures of the car or their return policy.
