The 7 fastest-depreciating sedans on the market

It’s widely known that new cars lose 10-15% of their value the minute they’re driven off the lot, but some sedans lose value much more quickly than others. When buying a new car, depreciation rate is always a concern, lest you end up owing more for the car than it’s worth. However, when you’re buying used, you need to view depreciation much differently - the new buyer’s depreciation is the used buyer’s savings.

Rules of the Road: What You Need to Know About Buying a Car

If you’ve ever felt like the deck was stacked against you while shopping for a car or truck, you’re not wrong. The truth is, the dealer has always had the upper hand. That’s because in most cases, the person selling you the vehicle knows the car-buying game way better than you do. But that’s not your fault. Unless you’re in the business, why should you be expected to know all the tricks of the trade?

Dealers Can Smell Ignorance: Arm Yourself Against Their Tricks

These days, it’s rare for someone to start their car-buying research when they walk into the dealership. In fact, 86 percent of car-buyers conduct research online before even walking onto the lot.

How to Decide the Right Car for You

From 2000 to 2017, 275 new and existing car models were offered in the U.S. This is a dizzying amount of options, so it’s no wonder that buying a new or used vehicle gets stressful. We get so overwhelmed that we typically consider only a small handful of vehicles, often based on what’s popular or what friends and family drive. It’s understandable. An abundance of choices can be paralyzing! But a tool like CoPilot can help you make sense of it all.

How Dealers Turn Car Buying Into a Shell Game

Remember the shell game? It was a con you’d see on street corners in big cities (like my native Chicago). The “dealer” would move a ball or a pea rapidly among three cups, and you’d have to guess where it ended up. It would seem easy until you started betting on the outcome, at which point the dealer would hide the ball using sleight of hand. The ball would vanish, as would your money.
