Car Buying Guide for Cars, Trucks and SUVs

How to Buy a Car in 2023

Happy couple having fun car shopping at a dealership.

Welcome to my 100% free online car-buying guide for new and used vehicles. My name is Carlton Wolf, and I’ve been in the retail car business since 1994.

Finding a good deal on a new or used car in 2023 is difficult. Most dealers lack inventory, and car buyers frequently spend more than the suggested retail price. You can still find the best price in your local area by using an online shopping service to compare prices.

I created the Auto Cheat Sheet to provide buyers with a more comprehensive understanding of the deceptive sales practices in many dealerships nationwide. While it’s essential to recognize that not all car dealers are dishonest, it’s difficult to predict whom you’ll encounter at the dealership.
