Misconception #2…Car Salesmen

Why you want to buy through We Drive's free, car-buying solution and not go on your own… There are approximately one million new autos sold every month in the U.S. and many buyers make the big mistake in the car-buying process by visiting a dealership and buying from the wrong type of sales representative. The advisor you work with at We Drive is critical in helping you get the best deal. At the dealership, usually you will have a junior salesman working the lot. Senior sales staff are in the of...

Get Rid of the Road Rage. Enjoy Your Car!

Like so many other days, I pulled into work on a recent morning feeling the stress and aggravation of all the traffic in South Florida. It was my main topic of conversation that morning. I was so mad. I could not understand how more than half of the people on the road could be so careless. Besides making me late, these drivers (for lack of a more descriptive word) have caused so many accidents or close calls. Usually they are on their cell phone but it is not limited to that activity. I have see...

GAP Insurance – a Lesson Learned

Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) is when you owe more on your vehicle than it is valued at. If your purchase a vehicle and have little or no money down, you risk the chance of being upside down at some point in time.

I always hear about the 'sleazy car salesman' and don't...

Are You Receiving Warranty Offers in the Mail? DON’T GET FOOLED!

Every week I receive calls from credit union members about extended warranty offers they receive in the mail. People receive these unsolicited mail offers usually shortly after they buy a car or when they renew their registrations. The companies behind these offers use the state DMV information that is available to the public to create their mailing lists. The mailings feature phrases like "2ND ATTEMPT" and quote laws that apply to mail delivery. It's all an attempt to make you, the car owner, t...

Misconception #1…Vehicle Pricing

I've been in the automotive industry for the past 10 years. I started with the Chevrolet family and I've been with We Drive since the beginning, putting the We Drive team together. One of the biggest misconceptions in the car-buying industry is how expensive vehicles really are. The average price for a new car is roughly $35,000. For most of us that is way too expensive. New car pricing is supposed to go up roughly $400. New tariffs on steel and aluminum could add even more to manufacturing cost...
