How To Buy A Vehicle Online

Don’t you love finding your perfect match vehicle? I just found mine online… a 2017 Nissan Titan SV. Here she is.

My neighbor walked up to my new truck and said, “Well, now I’ve got the bug again!”

Don’t worry, not that kind of bug! He said he had just gotten over the new truck envy he had for my neighbors new truck, until he saw mine. Harvey told me, “I want a truck just like yours! Where did you get it? Waxahachie, Arlington?” He continued to think of local dealerships he could drive to to find one. I said, I found it online, and picked the exact one that I wanted, then I went and picked it up in North Dallas. When I brought it home, my family loved it!

2 days later, my neighbor came back to me and said he went to about 5 dealerships and couldn’t find one like mine that he wanted. I felt bad for him because he didn’t know how to search things online and he wasn’t interested in trying it. He ended up calling a local dealership and asked them to find the one he wanted. Where do you think they went to find it? Online! They had to have it brought in from east Texas, and he finally got what he wanted.

So, now we both have new trucks.  The difference? I found multiple local options with the truck I wanted by using online search engines, like Cars.com.   He drove all around DFW, and couldn’t find any options that matched what he wanted. When searching Cars.com selecting new, used, or certified, covers every type of vehicle you could want. Next, you can type in the exact make, model, price range, and location range you want to define.  Then voila! You’ve got multiple local sellers with many options in those ranges.

On Cars.com, once you find the vehicle you want, you can contact the dealer in multiple ways; through the phone number listed, email form (provided on the same page), or online live chat! If you know you want it, you can click the “check availability” button, and find out if it’s ready for you today! There’s even a built in map to the location of the vehicle. Finding the right vehicle for you is so much easier online, than trying to shop each dealership in person. Letting a car salesman tell you what you want benefits him, but shopping online puts you in the driver-seat of your search. Of course, when you find the right one, it’s best to test drive it, and purchase it in person. To start your search for your perfect match, head over to:

Ford Focus RS: When You Need A Family Car, But Want To Keep Your Man Card

We received this Ford Fusion RS to test drive for a week.  All opinions are mine.

Every little boy has dreams of driving a race car.  That dream finally came true, when I drove the Ford Focus RS.  I have fond memories of my dad teaching me how to drive on a little four speed stick shift.  It was so exciting.  I miss those days because driving has lost it's excitement.  Being a father is awesome, but sometimes driving the family minivan gets a little…boring.  The good news is, however, that you do not have to give up the stick shift to get the safety and durability that you need in a family car.

Dad’s Dream Come True – Buy A Car From Home and Have It Delivered

Dad's Dream Come True – Buy A Car From Home and Have It Delivered

My wife and I have not bought a new car for about five years now.  We have been lucky.  We bought my current car in 2008 before the birth of our first son.  We then bought our van in 2011 and it has served us well.  It just hit 100,000 miles today, however, so I am thinking we might need to be buying a new car in the next year or so.
