Pre-approved auto loans give shoppers an advantage
  If you’re shopping for a car, new or used, and you expect to take out an auto loan to pay for it, you’ve almost certainly heard about “pre-approved” financing. If not, learning about pre-approved auto loan financing ought to be high on your to-do list. Of course, the ideal scenario is to pay for your car outright in cash. Besides avoiding monthly payments and interest charges, it enables you to aggressively negotiate on price, knowing you can take your business elsewhere if you want to. In reality, very few of us are in a position to do that: consumers get… Read More

Car buyers still look for reliability first, says J.D. Power
    If you’re making one of life’s major purchases, wouldn’t you want to be confident that purchase would last? So it is with cars. Reliability remains the key factor when choosing a new vehicle according to J.D. Power’s 2016 Initial Quality Study.

In my previous articles (Part 1 and Part 2), I discussed traveling to school and moving in to your college campus, respectively. Now that you are all settled, it’s time for classes to begin. I think everyone knows what the first day of school feels like − exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time. As a college student myself, here is some advice I have for students about to embark on that first day. Do Pack your bag the night before. Grab a spiral or two, laptop, a few pens and pencils and put them in your backpack the evening… Read More

Costs of car ownership worry millennial generation
The common wisdom that Gen Y consumers – those born between 1977 and 1994 – no longer are interested in automobiles doesn’t seem to hold water, suggests Deloitte’s study. They’re just practical about the costs of car ownership and other factors involved in owning vehicles. “Among Gen Y consumers who do not currently own or lease a vehicle, cost seems to be the main barrier – with most (80 percent) saying it is because they cannot afford it and three quarters citing high operational and maintenance costs,” reported Used Car News. “Affordability is the mantra for Gen Y consumers who… Read More
