Buying a new car or used car is a little like a game show. Choose the right door and you win your prize — a sweet deal on a good car. Choose the wrong door and you’ll lose money and hate the shopping experience.
Get the Best Car Deal Ever!
You know the car you want. Now it's time to find it on a dealer's lot. You could go to a local dealership's webpage and search the inventory, but that particular dealer might not have the vehicle you want in stock. And it's time-consuming to repeat that process across a dozen other dealer sites. But help is at hand: Edmunds' new car or used car inventory tools give you the ability to cast a wider net by searching through our extensive dealership network.
There are a few ways to get to the Edmunds new car and used car inventory tools. The easiest is to follow the links in the header of this website or simply tap the links in the previous paragraph.
The next is to visit Edmunds website and enter the make and model in the search bar. If you're interested in a used car, click "Used for Sale." Follow the same steps for a new car, then click on "Reviews & Specs," then scroll down to "Shopping Tools," where you'll find "See all for sale." Follow that link and you're good to go.
Make sure to set your ZIP code correctly to see the vehicles closest near you. If you're not sure what vehicles to consider, take a look at our expert car reviews page.

Getting a car financed is what takes so long at the car dealership. A smart car shopper will acquire Auto Financing beforehand and not rely on the Car Dealership to offer financing that benefits them, and not you.
Putting it plainly a FreshStart Car Loan lets you purchase or refinance your vehicle while rebuilding credit. We understand everyone’s story is different. Life happens and sometimes bad things happen to good people. In some cases, borrowers come to us with outstanding debt on car payments and having gone through car repossession.
However, what if the debt isn’t your fault? Unemployment, unexpected bills, family issues, personal issues, or a natural disaster can lead to outstanding car payments, leading into car repossession, a tainted credit history, and/or a low credit score.
Regardless of who’s to blame for financial troubles, there is a way out. FreshStart Car Loans are your superhero, saving you from unsatisfactory credit history and a bad credit score. FreshStart Car Loans are a way we can help you meet your financial goals. We sit down with you at closing and offer credit counseling.
The final step in buying a car is putting insurance on the car. After you have found the car, truck or SUV that you want, grab the Vin # from inside the driver door frame. By the way, there is a free Vin # Checker App that is easy to download from Google Play.
Regardless of where you get auto insurance, you are going to need the Vin #.
Also, getting the right Auto Insurance can be a bit tricky so it pays to shop around and get an insurance quote. You can customize your policy with Comprehensive Coverage for an extra layer of protection from things besides a collision, including theft. If you lease or finance your car, this coverage may be required.
We recommend getting an insurance quote upfront to make sure the car payments and insurance will fit in your budget. EverQuote is an independent insurance marketplace and is a free service that helps consumers compare quotes on auto insurance. It operates an online insurance marketplace connecting consumers with insurance providers.
