Top 10 Things To Know Before Buying A Car In 2014

Get the best interest rate: While you may be drawn to a certain car or brand because of an ad for a low interest rate, it’s of no use unless you qualify, and only about 10 percent of car buyers qualify for the zero-percent and low-interest-rate deals automakers offer. Even then, you may be better off financially by taking the cash rebate offered and getting financing elsewhere. Don’t visit a dealership until you’ve researched the best interest rate you can get. 

First-of-the month purchases: Sometimes this can be the right call, sometimes not. Just know that as the month winds down and sales targets look tough to meet for certain dealers and manufacturers, richer deals often come out to play.
