COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - With fears of a recession, high inflation, and supply chain issues due to the Covid-19 pandemic, car buying is tougher than ever. Auto prices have soared to new highs with a record-low inventory.  Here’s some advice for people wanting to buy a car right now.

Be prepared to buy a car the day you walk onto the dealership lot….. and make sure you do your research prior.

  • Pre-ordering a car may give you a better deal
  • If you have a car you can trade-in, check online at places like CarMax or Carvana to get the best offer on your car
  • Know your credit so you can find the best rate
  • Check your neighboring towns if your car dealership does not have the exact vehicle you’re looking for
  • Do your research to see if it is better to buy your car online or in-person
