Before you head to the dealership, catch up on the latest car buying tips from auto experts. We’ll teach you how to research vehicles on your short list and tell exactly what to bring when buying a car!

How to Get a Great Deal

Whether you want a brand new Mazda CX-5 for your Streamwood household or a car priced under 10k for budget-friendly Bartlett commutes, first you have to do a little research to get the best deal possible.

  • Budget: Most experts recommend spending no more than 25 percent of your monthly household income for auto expenses. Feel free to play around with our Payment Calculator!
  • New or Used: Brand new models offer the latest tech and style features, while used models offer serious savings. Try a CPO model for the best of both worlds!
  • Buy or Lease: Financing a car offers the best long-term savings, but you can get more car for your money when you lease.
