Buying a New Car | FTC Consumer Information

A new car is second only to a home as the most expensive purchase many consumers make. According to the National Automobile Dealers Association, the average price of a new car sold in the United States is about $30,000. That’s why it’s important to know how to make a smart deal.

 

Buying Your New Car

Think about what car model and options you want and how much you’re willing to spend. Do some research. You’ll be less likely to feel pressured into making a hasty or expensive decision at the showroom and more likely to get a better deal.

Consider these suggestions:

  • Check publications and websites that discuss new car features and prices. These may provide information on the dealer’s costs for specific models and options.
  • Shop around to get the best possible price by comparing models and prices in ads and at dealer showrooms. You also may want to

125,000+ web pages warning us of bicycle u-lock weaknesses.

I know what you’re thinking. The manufacturer of that particular u-lock has
probably fixed the design fault. Am I right? Well, yes, that’s probably true.
They would be daft not to. If so you’re probably safe until someone works out
another way to break a u-lock.  Unfortunately you will not have to wait too long.
As you can see from the movie, it didn’t involve heavy investment in R&D to

South Rim

Looking to exchange four wheels for two? Bicycling is a great way to experience the South Rim. Cyclists can enjoy approximately 13 miles (21 km) of roads and Greenway Trails that allow for more intimate explorations along the rim. If you get tired, load your bike on one of the park’s bicycle-friendly shuttle buses – there is a bus stop every one-half to one-mile along the 13 mile-stretch.

Bicycles are allowed on all paved and unpaved roads on the South Rim. Be good to yourself and the environment – ride instead of drive.
