Monday Money Minute: 5 Tips to Get My Dream Car

Well All Have a Dream Car

Since 2002, I have wanted an Audi A3 or Audi A4. They’re my dream cars. I love the design of both. I drool over them, as they drive by on the highway. I’ve gone out and done a few test drives to check out the new models when they are released. This keeps my goal in front of me and it’s a lot of fun.

As much as I love these cars, I don’t want to make a poor decision when I go out to buy one. So, I have a 5 step plan to make the whole process and decision making easier. I’m going to share those with you now.

Step 1: Test Drive Like a Mother…

First, I’m going to test drive a number of cars. This will be a big purchase for me and I don’t need to make the decision after the first test drive. I want to give myself a number of different options. I’ve scoped out 3 dealerships and will test drive 2-3 cars at each.

Step 2: Never Love a Street Car Named Desire

Second, falling in love with a car is easy, but not something I’ll do. Once the salesperson knows this has happened there is no room for price negotiations. There are millions of cars out there. So, I know that there has to be at least a handful of perfect cars for me. There isn’t just one dream car.

Step 3: Be a Budget Dominator

The third tip has to do with my budget. As John will attest, I hate to pay full price when I buy clothes. It’s no different when buying a dream car. I’m going to take my max budget amount and knock off 10%. This gives me wiggle room, especially if the salesperson tries to up sell me with features or add-ons that I may end up wanting.

Step 4-5: What the?

Tips 4 and 5, I think are the best, so I’m willing to bet you don’t mind waiting a couple of days for them. Come back on Wednesday to my blog post The Road to My Audi Part Zwei,” to score the 2 best tips.

BTW, that was 2 in German for those of you who love German cars.
