Vehicle purchasing can be stressful, but it doesn't have to be that way. Learn all the tricks of the trade.

Dreading your next purchase?

For many it's a white knuckled act of faith. You hope that by the end you will drive home in a vehicle you can love with a minimum of financial bruising. Some remorse usually sets in by the next day. The opinions of your work colleagues are mixed. There's always at least one know-it-all who's happy to tell you what you should have done. 

Did you get lured into more vehicle than you need or can afford? Are you kicking yourself for not pushing harder in the deal? Should you have financed those accessories after all? And what about the extended warranty and maintenance package? Was it really a good deal? Even if, at the end of the day, you are really happy with your new pride and joy, what you don't know about the process will give you sleepless nights.
