Attention Car Shoppers
When it comes to buying a car, Edmunds.com is a popular Web site to get the process started. There are car reviews, up-to-date price information (for both the car you want to buy and the one you're trying to sell), current deals and even price quotes from local dealers.
There's also a lot of advice, including two 10-step programs: one for buying a car, the other for selling. And if you have the time, you should make sure you read the long tale by one of its reporters who went undercover to work in two car dealerships, one a high-pressure showroom; the other, a no-haggle. "Confessions of a Car Salesman" is an enjoyable (but sometimes painful!) read...If you can't read the entire story, make sure you get to Part 9 with specific recommendations for consumers based on the lessons he learned.
And speaking of cars, do you have one with an anti-theft ignition key? As some of you may have painfully learned, they can be expensive and difficult to replace. Read more in Cindy Skrzycki's recent Regulators column.
