A first car is a young person's ticket to independence and responsibility. A lot is involved in the process of this purchase: how to decide what to buy, what is affordable, how much may be owed in taxes, and what the insurance options are. This information-packed volume helps readers learn how to negotiate the purchase price, whether they are entitled to a warranty, and how to get a loan. Tips include the particulars of service contracts, fuel conservation, hybrid options, and how to maintain the vehicle. Smart cars, cycles, scooters, and other non-car options round out the final chapter of this informative volume.
