Being New-Car Smart with Kelley Blue Book #YouAutoKnowHispz Learn how to make the best decisions when buying a new or used car.

Buying a new or pre-owned car is a huge deal for everyone, and yet; not everyone goes into this adventure with as much information as we can find. As a 41 year old Mom of 6, we have been through our share of new and used cars, and the only thing I ever walked into a dealership with was a check and a need for a vehicle.
Some were bad purchases, some were vanity purchases, not all were good investments.



Did you know your car is an investment?

Being New-Car Smart with Kelley Blue Book #YouAutoKnowHispz Learn how to make the best decisions when buying a new or used car.

While at the Hispanicize conference last month, I was invited to attend a Kelley Blue Book Car Buying Boot Camp and it was definitely eye opening!
We learned so many things, things that I wanted to share with my readers because I saw the importance in them.



Look for the hashtag #YouAutoKnowHispz on Twitter and you will see all of our tweets during and after the boot camp. There were many questions being asked to the car experts behind the social media channels, and they were answering all of our questions in real time, it was very informative and helpful.

Important information to know:

  • Consumer Reviews & Ratings-
    Kelley Blue Book has one of the largest databases of consumer vehicle reviews for third-party sites.
  • 5-Year Cost to Own information-
    Everyone knows that negotiating a good price on a new car can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars, but fewer car shoppers realize they can save even more simply by choosing the right vehicle to begin with. Similar cars with similar sticker prices can vary in their costs over the first five years of ownership, so it is important to compare overall costs to ensure you’ve made a smart choice that holds up in the big picture.
  • Price Advisor-
    Find what others are paying for the same vehicle in your local area.

Narrow your shopping list with Kelley Blue Book’s recent award winners and Editorial top picks based on what is important to you (e.g. Family Cars, 10 Coolest Cars, 10 Best SUVs Under $25,000 and more).
