Choosing a car is an important decision that merits careful planning. One should take a number of things into consideration before buying a car. Following these steps can make the task easier and make you choose the right car for you.

Consider factors that are important to you, such as looks, fuel efficiency, performance, reliability and safety features.

Come up with a realistic budget, based on what you can afford and consider the monthly payment and cost of upkeep.

Find a car that interests you and hop in it. Adjust the seat and mirrors, and check leg room in each part of the car. Ask to take a test drive. Start out on city streets and then head out to the highway. Pay attention to steering ease, turning radius, braking response and acceleration.

Adjust the mirrors and radio while you're driving to test convenience. Return to the dealership and thank the dealer. If you like the car, ask for a business card and say you will return later. Head to the next dealership and investigate other car models as described above.

Some important tips:
• Inquire about availability and delivery time, especially if you're interested in a popular model or want special features.

• Factor the dealership and its sales staff into your choice. A dealership you can trust, especially one with a competent service center on site, is worth more than money in your long future with the vehicle.

• Start negotiations on polite and friendly terms. Comment on what you like about the car and ask questions. The intent is to make the seller comfortable.

• Make your first offer. It should be lower than what you're willing to pay, but not an insulting figure. Use the list price as a reference, remembering that dealer profit (often around 10 percent) is built into this figure.

• Allow the seller to make a counteroffer. If the price is too high, say you're not able to afford that and ask him to talk to his manager.

• If the salesperson balks at your first offer, make a slightly higher one. Continue negotiating until you can agree on a price within your budget. If you can't agree on a price, seek out another dealer. You may be able to go back and get the first dealer to underbid the second dealer.

• Avoid setting your heart on one particular model or make. There are hundreds of excellent vehicles on the market, and becoming attached to one of them may make you less hard-headed in your bargaining.
