Louisiana Auto Direct helps you find the right used vehicle. Buying a vehicle can be a painless experience if you do the right research before shopping. Knowing how to shop is part of getting the process started. The important thing to remember is to shop locally first. One thing I used to hear all the time from shoppers on the phone looking for a car was how they wanted to spend their money where they paid taxes. This is not only a positive way to start a conversation with a car salesman. It also lets the local dealer know up front "Get the numbers right!" Im here to buy. Hopefully there are some interesting finds on this site to help you along your way in shopping and as always feel free to email us. We may be able to direct you to the right place. Louisiana Auto Direct has 10 years of experience in online car shopping. We understand the headache of buying a vehicle and also have investigated the great many scams online. If you think it's fishy ask us, we will let you know.
A Positive Local Experience. From years of research Louisiana Auto Direct's opinion to find a vehicle online is that of Cars.com. Cars.com is a source which drives customers to a large database of dealers new and used. From a customers outlook you can chat with the dealer if they are online. The customer can also search from a local zip code showing travel distances. From being one of the first salespeople to use Cars.com back around the year 2000, I can say what they evolved in is a great source to sell a vehicle, for a dealer as well as a consumer.

New Vehicles you may not know about. There are a couple of manufacturers in the car business that seem to be busier than ever. Chevrolet and Volkswagen. Chevrolet will be launching the new Chevy Volt in Mid November 2010. The stylish vehicle is half electric and half gasonline. The Volt is said to move 40 miles before ever using a drop of gasonline. Pretty impressive. And with new dampening to the Chevrolet assembly in the last 3 years The new Chevrolet lineup should be part of your driving thoughts. (basically saying they are built better than before) The other vehicle is the Volkswagen NCC being released around the first half of the year. This vehicle can go 140 mph and is classy and stylish together. The coupe clocked an amazing 40 mpg combined. Awesome choices for your driveway.
Do You Need A Carfax? Yes You Do! Carfax vehicle history reports have become a used car staple in the last 5 years. If you are shopping for a vehicle and a dealer does not use carfax, I would analyze the vehicle much further. Especially if the pricing is retail or sometimes even above. Carfax offers a carfax buyback certificate up to $10,000.00. Call carfax for the details. It may not be a bad practice because I have seen them miss some things through the years. But I do know carfax always tries to update their database to get the consumer the best reliability they can. ***Finding out about your future car is a great thing to do. Also keep in mind they do not say anything about the engine. Have a trusted mechanic or body technician look at the vehicle for your peace of mind and give you their evaluation because experience can see something you may not be able to.
