Edmunds.com Advises Holiday Car Buyers How to Properly Review Car Sales Contracts Before Closing the Deal
SANTA MONICA, Calif. - (BUSINESS WIRE) - As car shoppers rush to land a good holiday deal this month, Edmunds.com, the premier resource for car shopping and automotive information, advises all buyers to take a moment to carefully review their sales contracts before they sign on the dotted line. And while the contract can appear to be an overwhelming jumble of numbers and fine print, Edmunds.com identifies the key elements that every car buyer should look for in its new article at http://www.edmunds.com/car-buying/how-to-review-your-new-car-sales-contract.html.
"The contract isn't quite as complicated as it looks, and in fact it's actually a standard form that is the same at all dealerships in most states," says Edmunds.com Sr. Consumer Advice Editor Philip Reed. "So it's not so much the language in the document that should concern you. Instead, it is the numbers in the little boxes that you need to review carefully."
Those numbers, says Edmunds.com, should always match the numbers and terms negotiated with the dealer. To avoid any confusion, Edmunds.com recommends that buyers establish the "out-the-door" price - which includes any taxes and fees - before they review the contract. This can be accomplished by obtaining the dealer's "worksheet," which will list all the figures that go into the final contract.
