First Time Car Buyer Tips

Enter 'First Car Freedom' Photo Contest for a Chance to Win a $200 Gas Card

IRVINE, Calif., July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Buying your first car can be a daunting experience.  Many people are uncomfortable with price negotiation, and most often haggling is still a big part of the auto purchase process.  First-time buyers also are confronted with a wide array of possible choices, a car, a truck or an SUV; whether to buy or lease, how to finance and where to buy. As a first-time buyer, this is uncharted territory, no wonder the thought of buying your first car can bring on a headache.


The good news is that Kelley Blue Book has been helping consumers with car-buying information and advice for decades and its website is built on the premise of helping consumers make good purchase decisions. The company's knowledge of car manufacturers and dealers, gained in its 80-plus years of doing business, can be invaluable in helping car buyers make good choices along the way.
