Auto Buying Advice

With the exception of buying a home, a new vehicle is the most expensive purchase made in most people’s life. Therefore, buying a new car or truck is a major decision for most consumers.

For that reason, auto buyers should evaluate year-in-year-out transportation costs when shopping. You’ll want to look for a vehicle that retains its value well. Why? It’s because over the first five years of new-car ownership depreciation is a car owner’s biggest expense.

Fortunately, there are services to find the resale values of cars, trucks, sport utilities and vans. They include CarsDirect, Kelley Blue Book and Edmunds.
