Buying a new car can be painless if you do your homework. The last two cars we’ve bought have been kind of a spur of moment decision. Actually, my husband, Steve and I have talked about the make and model of car we wanted but that’s about it. A couple of weeks ago I came home from running errands and announced to my husband I wanted to buy a new car. Our 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee had 143,000 miles on it and had done a great job for 12 years but I was ready for a new Jeep. That’s all it took to get Steve on the hunt for a Jeep Grand Cherokee. And today you can do your home and shopping in the comfort of your own home on the Internet. Steve began by visiting www.truecar.com , a website that helps consumers determine the true price of a car. You simply enter the year, make and model of the car you’re looking for and you’ll get the sticker price listed at local dealerships. You’ll also get a graph with the best local price along with great, good and market prices.
