Here is a 5-minute, 20-slide talk from a 2007 Ignite conference in which John Gruhl shares his tips on buying a new car from a dealer. It’s gotten over 250,000 views on YouTube, and includes a lot of the same tips you may have heard before but in a slightly difference package.
Here are the major bullet points to recap:
- Obtain financing separately (I would add, or pay cash!)
- Set aside two full weekends for buying a car.
- Get competitive bids from several dealers.
- Walk away if the deal changes.
- Don’t buy any extras.
