Sunday, October 26, 2008 Saves You Thousands of Dollars With FREE Pricing Tool

With all the free tools we have on the internet like, there is absolutely no reason for you to walk into a dealership without being 100% informed on the value of the vehicle you are looking for.’s vehicle guide allows you to find out what others have paid in your region for the exact car you are looking for. This places the dealers on the backseat to compete for your business. Trust me, it is much easier to haggle with a dealer knowing you can delete his email or hang up the phone if they are rude or too pushy. They know this, they don’t like it, but they can’t do anything about it. Lets face it, this is the information age and a new way of buying cars has emerged.

When you go to the site, here are some tips and terminology you will want to be aware of:

  1. Enter the make and model.
  2. Your first benchmark is the national base price. Be sure to also take note of both the MSRP & Invoice price.
  3. You can then add the options you would like to get a better feel for pricing that suits your style and needs.
  4. Next you will see a very important number. The "TMV" or True Market Value. This value is extremely important because it is calculated based on what others have paid for similar cars in the region you selected.
  5. The Final and most important step is having the dealers compete for your business by getting dealer quotes. This is an automated process, and helps kick start negotiations by email and/or over the phone.
Don’t suffer in the lobby of a dealership ever again. So head on over to and remember – “Why pay full price for anything on the web.”

Imagine Life Without High Speed Internet Providers

Have you ever stepped back for a minute to think what it would be like without access to the net through high speed internet providers? Take this a step further and imagine life without a cell phone. I recently went through two nerve racking events that gave me an immediate appreciation for these two things we take for granted.

I was driving to Lake Conroe from my mothers lake house and took a wrong turn along the way. I was supposed to meet my wife, but we had not finalized plans. My battery was low and the car charger didn't seem to connect properly. Long story short, I lost battery power, was lost, could not call for directions nor coordinate where to meet with my wife. Talk about a desperate look for a pay phone. I don't even remember how pay phones work. Next I move on to broadband.

Hurricane Ike just rolled through Houston and let me tell you, ten days without power means you not only are missing your favorite show on TV, but you are completely disconnected with the rest of the world because your high speed internet provider is down as well. I was shaking the very next day. Not because my fence was knocked down, but because I had no internet access. Yes my friends, I was going through high speed internet withdrawl.

So my advice is take advantage of all the tools that technology provides you. A good example is the site that would not be possible without high speed connectivity. Till the next post... Bye for now.

Thursday, August 23, 2007 Tools Make Dealers Compete For Your Business vehicle guide gives you all the tools necessary to make an informed decision when you purchase a car. Not only does give you the price others have paid for the exact car you are looking for, but they also have a function that allows several dealers to "bid" for your business.

So why not change the tide and put the dealers in the backseat for once. Without the pressure of sitting in a dealership all day with salespeople pressuring you into making a decision, you can make up your own mind on your time schedule. I actually negotiated the final price on my Accura over the phone without laying one foot in the showroom. I highly recommend this FREE tool for anyone thinking about buying a vehicle. Check out
