Hi. Bob Aldons from Car Business again, with advice on cars and everything automotive. Here’s number 4 in the series of 10 Mistakes that Car Buyers Make.

Bob Aldons - Car Business

Car Expert – Bob Aldons of Car Business

Car Business is a multi-dimensional automotive company that aims to help you to buy your new car for a better price than you can do on your own. Based on the Redcliffe Peninsula about 15 minutes from Brisbane Airport and 30 minutes from the Brisbane CBD, Car Business is located in an area that allows us to pick and choose from Brisbane’s finest new cars for sale. The ‘go to’ Brisbane car buying agents, Car Business, is so much better than a car broker – first and foremost, Car Business is an experienced Car Buyer’s Advocacy service. Our experienced staff will stand alongside you, and act on your behalf to help you buy your new car at a better price than you can directly through new car dealers.

4) Thinking it’s ok to use dealer financing

Whilst 0% finance is and has been prolific in the USA for a long time, we’ve seen this type of marketing introduced into Australia over the last 3 or 4 years. Sure, the ads offer rates as low as zero percent, but the fine print says that’s only on the RRP price of the car. Last month they advertised a drive away discounted price, this month it’s 1.9%. If you’re confused at the offer, don’t feel alone. Even dealers get confused at the differing marketing offers from their manufacturers.

It’s best to shop your finance separately. Besides the actual selling of the vehicle you want, dealers see an opportunity to sell finance and insurance to you as another profit centre.

Best thing to do is to ask your bank or credit union for a quote, but don’t be pressured into just dealing with them because they hold your home loan. Bankers get pretty greedy and it’s not unusual for them to push a personal loan as the best form of finance. Personal loans vary in rate but 12%-14% is usual. Even dealers can get better rates that than. And then there’s the home loan to buy your car. If you’re a diligent saver and pay more off the home loan than you need to, stay away from mortgages to buy a car. Most people slip into a comfortable zone where they let the home loan stay as it is and the actual cost of their car is crazy expensive.

Car Business ShowroomEvery article I write is targeted at providing as much information for car owners and prospective car buyers.

Above anything else, Car Business is a company that provides automotive advice for car owners who don’t have access to experts. Am I an expert? I’ve been in the car business for over 38 years, and while there are areas where I’ll reach out to friends and acquaintances for advice, I’ve got a pretty good grasp of most aspects of the business. I’ve been called a lot of things in my time – Car Doctor, Car Professor or The Car Guy, but whenever someone wants some sensible advice, they call me.

I don’t charge for advice, whether it’s on the phone, via email or face to face. I’m happy to provide my expertise whenever I can. So if you want to chat to The Car Guru, get in touch.

I have access to good quality cars – you can see them on Cars Guide. Just click here [Cars Guide] to view our current stock of vehicles.

Other parts of my business that you may find the need to use from time to time are:

www.genuinespares.com.au. This is an online spare parts store for Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Volkswagen and Isuzu Ute. I’ve got thousands of mechanical and panel parts plus Mopar (Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Alfa) T-Shirts, tyres, and alloy wheels as well. If you’re looking for a hard to get replacement part for any of these brands, or you just want to get a better price than retail on any car brand, let me know. And you won’t pay inflated replacement parts prices either. I’ve priced my stock at a discounted value to compete with the USA and Europe spare parts prices but with local delivery charges

We’re local agents for Williams Paint and Interior Protection as well as AutoGard and CleanGard car products and SunX window tinting. The Same story applies. This is an area that car dealers want to make an amazing amount of profit – up to 100% in some cases. Don’t get ripped off by the franchise car dealers – check us out for a local competitive price on car protection products, window tinting, and engine products.

I’m pleased to advise that in 2015 I was awarded the franchise for 1800Approved Finance. As a local finance company, we’re able to provide a better level of service than the local car dealers as well as pretty competitive rates. SO before you sign on the dotted line, let us compare rates on finance and insurance for you – no obligation. If you’re looking for finance for a new or used car, or any other worthwhile purpose, our company can assist – even if you’ve had some troubling financial issues.

BLOG – I write a new Blog for my website a couple of times a week. If you’d like to read some of the stories I’ve written just click here.
