Hello, I need some help deciding if the 2013 Elantra is a good car to buy for the deal I am getting offered.

 

Certified Pre-Owned 2013 Hyndai Elantra, 26,500 miles, $13,600.

I was offered 1000 down & $299/month for 72 months.

Then got it to, $500 down & $270/month for 72 months.

 

Let's keep in mind that I am 21 years old with no real established credit trying to do this on my own without a co-signer and also working 35-40 hours a week at $11.75/hour.

 

Is that last offer worth it or should I keep looking?

the cars total price seems okay but either 299 or 270 a month seems expensive for 72 months. it should be cheaper. what is the interest on that? you should def try get more info that. it doesnt seem right for 13k - down payment over the course of 72 months. seems kinda fishy. dont get me wrong its definitely a great car.

Steps Every Smart Car Buyer Needs to Follow

When it comes to getting a great deal on a new car, there's a right way and a wrong way to do it.

Most car buyers do it the way to buy a new car so you can save thousands more than the typical buyer.

Step 1.

Most new car buyers already own a car that needs to be sold or traded-in. Figure out how much your current car is worth. This will make a huge impact on the amount of money you can wrong way - they focus only on monthly payments and drive right down to the nearest dealership before they've done all their research.

Let me show you the proper put as a down payment, thus lowering your monthly bills.

Step 2.

Next, you need to decide if you're going to sell the car yourself or trade it in. There are pros and cons to both and this decision can affect your price by thousands of dollars.

Step 3.

Figure out your monthly budget. How much can you comfortably afford to pay each month - make sure to include insurance cost, keeping in mind that insurance for new cars is more costly than for used. You'll also want to figure out how much down payment you can afford.

Step 4.

Know your credit score and make sure to fix any errors that you find.

Step 5.

Shop and compare financing rates and figure out the maximum amount you qualify for. This will give you the maximum price you can pay for a vehicle including sales tax and all other fees. Make sure you use all your options including credit unions, local banks, and online sources. Most car shoppers can save over $1,000 just with this step.

Step 6.

Figure out if it makes more sense to lease rather than buy your vehicle. In most cases, it's better to buy, but there are exceptions. Figure out which one is right for you.

Step 7.

Do your research on vehicles that fit your budget. Look for factors such as quality, reliability, and dependability. Test drive all the vehicles you're interested in that fit within your budget and figure out the trim levels that fit your needs best.

Step 8.

Narrow your choices down to two or three vehicles. The one you prefer, and another one or two that you will also be happy with if you can't get a good price on the first.

Step 9.

Find out the invoice price and real world prices that others are paying for the vehicles of your choice (TrueCar is a good source). Also find out the exact rebates and incentives being offered in your local area and whether or not it's good to buy now or wait.

Step 10.

Contact as many dealers as you can to get their best offers on the car of your choice. Make sure to use my car buying method.

Step 11.

Be aware of the fees and upsells the dealer will try to pass on to you after the sale.

Step 12.

Be willing to walk away from any deal you're not happy or comfortable with.

With these 12 steps, you've got a perfect outline on exacty what you need to do through the entire car buying process.

Hi # shilabrata10

You have made buying a car simply by noting few important points one should consider while buying a car. I own a sedan car by Tata Motors that has proven very economical in terms of fuel efficiency and maintenance. I would recommend Indigo eCS as the best affordable fuel efficient car in Sri Lanka as it has CR4 engine that gives high performance with consumption of low fuel. It is a family car with space of a full sized sedan. You must see its technical specifications and features at the Tata Motors website where you can even request a Test Drive.
