what’s up what’s up I hope everybody’s
having a good day today my name is
Christian welcome to Auto Thema and
today I’m going to be talking to you
guys about my top tips on how to buy a
used car tax season is upon us right now
so a lot of people are looking to buy a
used car even a new car but this video
specifically is going to talk about
buying a used car I’ll give you guys
some tips to make it just a little less
stressful than what it normally would be
South chicago auto auction harvey inventory
and maybe save you some money in the
step number one budgeting you want to
make a realistic budget something that
you’re going to be able to afford make
sure that you can afford the monthly
payments and a good rule of thumb for
that is don’t let the monthly payment of
the vehicle exceed 15% of your monthly
income that way you have a little bit of
a cushion in case something were to go
wrong so the next step is researching
the vehicle that you want so you can go
to websites like Edmonds Auto
Trader even Craigslist look for a
specific car that you’re looking for the
year then make the features hit search
and you’re gonna get a lot in the
results page that’s gonna give you at
least an overview an idea of what’s
gonna be in your price range based on
what you put to search when I go to
visit these websites I always suggest
that you go down to the bottom of the
page normally past pictures in all the
little fine manufacturer divi you’ll be
surprised how many people skip this this
this step they don’t ever go to the
bottom and look at the details because
you know you know you might be looking
for a specific car but then it has some
modifications that maybe you don’t want
maybe you want to stop car and this car
has a lot of performance going on and a
lot of the OEM stuff that I originally
came with have been swapped out so it’s
very important to go into the
description and make sure it’s something
that that you’re looking for
and a lot of the times these websites
admins of cars comm a lot of the sellers
that put their vehicles on there they do
have an option to check the CARFAX
obviously you want to take that with a
grain of salt because with my experience
Brent experiences car factors don’t
always show everything that’s happened
but at least you get a better picture of
what’s going on there so once you go
ahead and you do all of that stuff
ideally what you’re looking at price
you’re looking at vehicle that you’re
looking for you want to go to certain
websites to check the value of the car
and see what it’s selling for I’ve used
websites like true car comm Kelly Blue
Book even Abba these websites give you a
better idea of what people are paying
for these cars that dealers around the
world so you can easily go to Kelly Blue
Book look up the vehicle of the year the
add-ons take that information print it
out also you want to look for the value
of the vehicle that you’re traded in if
you are traded in a vehicle look for
that ahead of time see the reason you
want to do this is because once you go
to the dealer you’re gonna have an upper
hand you’re gonna have a lot of
information to be able to counter argue
whatever they’re talking about this see
the dealers their sales reps there they
love it when people go there unprepared
they’re able to give you whatever facts
they want to give you and you have
nothing to counter with so you’re gonna
want to print out the value of the car
that you’re looking to buy and then

you’re also gonna print out the value of
the car you’re planning to trade in and
you know be really honest with yourself
when you’re right in it you know it
gives you the option to give you the
condition of your vehicle be honest
because once you go to the dealer
eventually they’re gonna go ahead and
they’re gonna look at the car anyways
print that out like I said make sure you
have that once you guys go over to the
dealer so the next step is check with
your bank or your credit union to see
what kind of interest rate they would
offer you for the car that you’re
looking to buy I tell you this because
dealers they do have partnership with a
lot of these banks you know the bank
offers of them an interest for a certain
car somebody’s buying but the dealer
cranks it up just a bit so they can make
more of a commission and ultimately you
want to get a better deer for you so get
that information from your bank
take that information along with that
information that you have with your
value for your trading and AK are you
looking to buy and then go over to the
dealer with all that information okay so
the next step you want to go ahead and
take is create an ideal price and this
is a price and a lot of us call well not
a lot of us but dealers call out the
door price and based on all that
information that you gathered the values
the research the pricing create a price
an ideal price for yourself and this is
the total max that you’re willing to pay
for the vehicle so let’s give you an
example $15,000 that’s the number that
you’re willing to go ahead and purchase
that vehicle from the dealer that’s the
number it doesn’t matter what the taxes
are the dealer fees or anything like
that’s called out the door price a lot
of the times that you know eliminates a
lot of the stress and a lot of the
nobody’s negotiations with the dealers
because you’re just giving them a flat
line price that’s that’s the price you
want to get and that’s the price they’re
gonna have to give you if they want to
make a sale never go into the dealer
with the pricing for your monthly cost
sales reps that the dealers absolutely
love that because if you go in there and
you ask him for a specific amount let’s
say I go there and I go listen I want to
pay only $400 a month they can
manipulate that system so much that you
pay only the $400 a month so you get
what you asked for but maybe it might
have been a little cheaper but not
they’re squeezing in all these extras
without you even knowing so save
yourself the trouble and come up with
the price and that is out the door and
that’s the number you’re gonna have
notated down or in your mind and you’re
gonna use it later on once you go over
to the deal and so talking about dealers
is the next step go to your preferred
dealer go take a look at the car
so from prior experience I’ve noticed
that when I’ve gone to dealerships a lot
of other sales reps there they just want
to get straight to the point are you
looking to buy a car are you looking to
buy you’re looking at finance are you
looking to pay cash you’re looking at
cosign and what’s your credit all that
stuff just ignore all of that stuff and
ask the person hey can I go see this
specific car that I’m looking
I want to make sure you like the car
before you waste any time and don’t feel
overwhelmed oppression by these people
if you want to a tip that I always give
to people when they go buy a car is go
bring a friend you feel a little less
pressured a little less you know
suffocated in a way bring a friend that
way you don’t feel the pressure when you
tell these sales rep hey I’ll tell you
that in a bit but I want to go see the
car first so you get to the car you know
take a look around the car see if you
see anything I mean use common sense to
see if you see anything like some chips
or some bangs and be realistic based on
the price and that you chose a little
scratches and scrapes and stuff like
that can always be fixed later on look
for major stuff like rust holes if you
live in a place that it snows a lot
because that can be very expensive to
fix look for major color restoration
maybe you can see the difference between
the hood and the bumper where it doesn’t
seem to magic as to the seller that’s
showing you the cars much questions as
you can so you can get a better idea and
you can come up with a better decision
later on have them turn on the radio the
a/c Oh God have them turn on the a/c
please so many times I’ve seen people
walk out the lot and the a/c doesn’t
work you don’t want to deal with that it
could be an expensive situation make
sure the a/c works the radio the lights
the blinkers and stuff like that then
ask the seller to test-drive the car so
you want to go ahead and ask them to
test ride the car right this is the car
you might be owning for the next few
years you want to make sure it rides the
way you want it’s comfortable and by
using a little bit of common sense that
there’s nothing major wrong with it at
lycée you can do this situation I would
recommend you get a mechanic maybe a
personal mechanic somebody that you know
that has a very good knowledge of cars a
lot of the times if you don’t have one
you can probably get one for like 50 or
70 dollars ask the seller if you’re able
to take the Carver to a mechanic and if
they allow you that’s normally a good
sign all right so you finished the test
drive and you come back over to the
dealers parking garage if you haven’t
looked go around the car once again if
you were pleased with drive yourself try
to look at the the tire thread a lot of
the times you can tell if it’s bad
thread her good thread it’s uneven wear
on it always look for like an even
thread because then you normally means
it has an alignment issue or a disk
issue or the car’s not steady in some
kind of way make sure that the car is
not producing like a purplish blue smoke
from the pipe that means that the engine
is burning oil trust me just stay away
from it and I begin to give you an
explanation unless you really know
somebody that can fix the head of the
engine but you just want to stay away
from a car purchase like that like I
said don’t be afraid to ask questions
but like I said before the best way is
to avoid all of this and go talk to a
personal mechanic let them do all that
dirty work if you end up seeing some
chips and stuff like that or some paint
defects make sure and go back to your
kelley blue book or true car value
evaluations and the duck some points and
get the the price more accurate after
that all right so you like the car you
liked everything about it a drove smooth
it was great for you then at this point
you’re gonna want to go inside and talk
to the seller but see if you were
looking at maybe another car and that
was an option don’t get emotionally
attached to this car and take your time
tell the seller that you’re gonna go
over and look at the other cars at that
point they’re probably gonna get to the
point that it seems like the pressure
and a lot they don’t want you to leave
they’re saying it’s a bad idea and they
try to talk you out of it at the end of
the day sir buying decision don’t force
it don’t rush it if you don’t have to go
look at the other cars and repeat the
process that you did with this so once
you decide which car you want to go
ahead and buy go to that specific dealer
talk to the sales rep and this is where
the fun actually begins to talk in
numbers once again I’m going to repeat
guys do not use the monthly payment
tactic sales reps at the dealers they
absolutely love that because they can
slam hidden fees hidden services and
extras into your monthly cost and still
give you the number that
stay away from the monthly our tactic
stick to the price that you patty you
mind earlier which was that out the door
price and that’s the number you want to
stick to you and hold that in your head
so you’re gonna run by them that out the
door price and that eliminates any
hassle any kind of negotiations or any
sad stuff that’s gonna get straight to
the point
if that’s the car that you want to get
stick to that price stay firm don’t let
them scare you worst case scenario you
leave guess what they’re gonna probably
call you nine times out of ten and try
to work out a better deal and probably
give you the deal that you wanted
originally remember you’ve done your
homework already you know the values you
know the interest rate that your bank is
gonna provide you or your credit union
you know of what the car is worth
you know what the car sells for remember
this is why you did your homework before
you have the information you have the
values you have what people are paying
for normally for the vehicle that you’re
looking to buy and by the way I have not
talked about your specific trade and if
you have that and there’s a specific
reason I haven’t done that you want to
leave that to the very last step because
they try to manipulate numbers in there
to make it seem like they’re giving you
more or they’re making your payment’s
cheaper trust me they have a way to
manipulate the system you want to get
the outdoor price and get them to say
yes to the outdoor price and then you
slam in the fact hey I got a trade-in
daddy now you have the documentation for
the trade-in and now you can get an
honest trade in value on top of the
outdoor price and that you got from the
dealer they’re probably going to hate
you for this one but remember you’re
trying to get a good deal not them so
the next step they’re probably going to
do is run your credit since you’re gonna
be buying the car and they’re gonna see
what interest rate you’re approved for
at that point you bring in that secret
weapon you already got the interest rate
from your bank once they give you the
interest rate and a lot of the times
it’s probably to be higher than what
your bank offered that’s where you use
that as a negotiation tool and if they
can read it even by a fraction of a
percent just go ahead and take their
loan will make it a lot easier you’re
already at the dealer you can get
everything done are very quick and easy
they’ll ask if you want like the 48
finance option the 16-month you choose
someone that’s better for you the one
that fits within your budget for the
monthly payments remember never try to
exceed the 15% of your monthly income so
the next step you’re almost at the
finish line but you’re not quite there
now you have to go to the finance office
or what they call the finance manager
space and that’s a lot of the times the
best sales rep in the entire dealer
they’re there to try to sell you add-ons
and this is where a lot of people feel
like they’re getting pressured and they
break and they say yes to whatever
they’re trying to sell you I’ll try to
sell you some theft though some
anti-theft thing for your car just avoid
it they’re gonna try to offer you gap
insurance you can probably get that
through your own insurance a lot cheaper
so just decline everything that they’re
offering you there avoid everything
there they’re also gonna try to offer
you the extended warranty for your
vehicle if it doesn’t already have one
if your car doesn’t have extended
warranty I would personally get that
advice from the personal mechanic that
looked at your car and if they didn’t
look at your car a lot of the times
warranty is a good idea so you use your
own judgment for the warranty anything
else they try to offer you they’re just
decline it it’s not worth it and just
stick to it
stay firm they’re gonna try to talk you
down they’re gonna try to make you feel
like crap just stick to to the process
decline everything and if you want to
get the warranty if the warranty is a
good price and you think you know it’s
worth it for you and you just want no
headaches then on a case by case
scenario you can accept that but don’t
go for the first price and just tell
them no no no and then at the very end
hey what’s the best person you can do
for that warranty so one step that I
forgot to talk about they probably at
this point I already told you what your
monthly payments are gonna be but one
thing you probably haven’t checked is
the insurance so before you sign any
paperwork you leave any kind of down
payment or anything like that you might
want to call your insurance with the VIN
number of the car and try to get it
pulled for that vehicle make sure it
stays within your range because let’s
say you’re driving something like a
four-door sedan and you’re paying $90 a
month but then you’re buying a two-door
sports car with twin turbo or whatever
and then you call them and then your
Rockets up to $200 a month and then that
screws you over in the long term right
so you want to make sure that that fits
your budget as well alright guys that
