LifeKit My personal advice is that never buy a car from Hertz because cars don’t get serviced until they’re past warranty (ex. 36.000 miles) and have dents and scratches which lower the price(you think you’re getting a good deal) but the resale value drops so much it’s not worth it. LifeKit A loan for a car ? Did that for my first car, because I needed one to get to work. After that never again. My first cars weren’t anything to get excited about but they did the job. Save up the money before buying a new one.

LifeKit Better: never set foot on the dealer's lot except to pick it up. LifeKit Did I really read that your salesman can mark up your interest rate and that this guy doesn’t know what gap insurance is? Must be nice to have so much money that you don’t have to worry about if a car gets totaled out LifeKit This is the biggest crock. Don’t tell them you have a trade? That changes EVERYTHING. People that do that are the ones that then complain about spending so long at the dealership. Why are you still posting this horrible advice?

LifeKit LifeKit Or just buy a Tesla online from the comfort of your home in less than 5 minutes 😌 LifeKit ty LifeKit Terrible advice. LifeKit Absolutely. I told the dealer what I was preapproved for and he knocked $400 more off the price to get it down to the preapproval amount. LifeKit I’ve always been preapproved via my credit union but found that the dealerships’ financing team still run my credit. It’s so disrespectful & irritating.
