Most private sellers aren't as experienced in negotiating as dealers, nor do they want to negotiate as car dealerships do. Use this to your advantage and make a fair but aggressive offer. If the seller turns it down, be persistent and counter with a slightly higher amount. Remember, it might be OK to spend a little more than you'd hoped if you found the perfect used car.


Long rumored but never delivered, a V-8 engine finally returns to Jeep’s legendary off-roader. Based on the Wrangler Unlimited, the new 2021 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 392 gets extensive engineering modifications to accommodate a 6.4-liter V-8 making 475 horsepower. It comes only in off-road-ready Rubicon trim, and with a healthy load of standard equipment. According to Jeep, quantities will be limited.


A redesigned Audi A3 and Audi S3 are coming to the U.S., but it appears the vehicles are delayed until the first half of 2021, which means they’ll likely be 2022s. In any case, when the new car makes its way to the States it will have appealing new styling, an upgraded interior with new tech, and an electrified powertrain for improved performance and efficiency.
Redesigned this year, the 2021 GMC Yukon comes in standard and extended-length versions, the latter known as the Yukon XL. With this new SUV, GMC dramatically increases interior space, making it more comfortable for passengers and more accommodating of cargo. Naturally, in addition to SLE and SLT trim, the popular Denali returns, along with a new AT4 off-road model.
When you take delivery, either at home or at the dealership, have the salesperson walk around the vehicle with you. Check that there are no scratches, dents or dings. Make sure you get the owner's manual, a spare key and the original window sticker. The window sticker shows you the price and a list of your vehicle's features, which is useful later when you sell or trade in. Most dealers include a full tank of gas and a detail with your new vehicle, so ensure you receive those. Now is also the time to ask any last-minute questions you may have about the vehicle. Ask the salesperson anything you want to know, from how to pair your phone to how to use all the latest advanced safety features.

One of several electric trucks and SUVs that General Motors will introduce in the next few years, the 2023 Cadillac Lyriq is based on GM’s new EV platform and uses the company’s Ultium battery pack. This midsize SUV is the first of several Cadillacs with “iq” in its name, and the automaker estimates it will provide up to 300 miles of driving range.

A vehicle history report from services such as AutoCheck, Carfax or the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System is worth the money and could help tip the scales in favor of one car over another. Pro tip: Check the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA.gov) website to see if the vehicle you're considering is under an active safety recall.
Volvo previously used Polestar to define its performance-tuned vehicles. That remains true today (Polestar Engineered), but now it is also a stand-alone brand for the automaker’s high-end electric vehicles. The Polestar 2 is a 5-door fastback that sits high off the ground like an SUV and can travel up to 233 miles on a single charge. You can order one today.
When shopping at a CarMax store, simply tell a sales associate that you'd like to take the car of your choice for a 24-hour test drive. You’ll be asked to provide a valid driver's license, verifiable comprehensive and collision coverage, and to return the car to the same store on the next business day. Please note, there is a 150-mile limit for 24-hour test drives and the car’s condition must remain consistent with when it left the store.

Don't stress out over a little bit of haggling. If you've done your homework on the car, you will have the information you need to negotiate. You should be able to determine a fair price for the car you've settled on by appraising the vehicle and getting its True Market Value (TMV®), also known as the average price paid for the vehicle in your area. Make sure you input the correct miles and choose the applicable options. Edmunds' TMV tool will show you what you can expect to pay for the vehicle, depending on whether the seller is a private party or a dealership. You'll also get the car's estimated trade-in value. Consider printing a copy of the TMV and bringing it with you to help wrap up the deal.

Run your credit report and get your credit score. The score tells you your credit tier, which will affect your annual percentage rate. Even if you have bad credit, you can still buy a vehicle that's right for you and your wallet. Next, get preapproved for a loan at your local bank, credit union or online lender. By going in with financing already arranged, you can determine if the dealer can beat your interest rate. This strategy also keeps the negotiations more focused since you will only be looking at the total price of the vehicle (also called the "out the door" price), not a monthly payment.
