Buying a new car can be nerve-wracking if you don't know what you're doing. Consumer advice editor for edmunds.com has some advice. First: get informed. Read up on the car or truck you want to buy and use the Internet to research prices. When you're ready to walk into the dealership don't be scared. Mike Hudson, consumer advice editor said, "Be confident that you know exactly what you want and that you can take a good deal if you're offered it, and at the same time be prepared to walk out because that's the ultimate power you have as a consumer." Hudson adds that most car buyers are three-to-five-years out of the loop because they base their latest car buying experience with their last experience. Make the Internet work for you. You can find the fair market value of any car, with any number of options online.
