    Excellent post. I think your blog is off to a great start, I look forward to seeing new content as you add it. I believe the best point you made is near the end – think about the purchase after you’ve test driven it. Sleeping on a decision is a wise thing to do, considering a transaction of that scope. Definitely don’t rush into a vehicle purchase, always take a day or two to consider whether the purchase really is the right one for you.

    Also, if the price on the vehicle seems too good to be true, more often than not there is something wrong with the vehicle that the seller is not telling you. Don’t let them rush you into a decision. Always fully investigate the vehicle with the VIN# and view a full report before even considering a purchase.

    Overall this is a great blog post to get you started in the right direction.

    I would like to choose a car I want before I can afford one. It makes me work harder in order to get a car I really want. 😀
