Certain color cars cost more to insure

There’s a persistent myth that states that bright colored cars, such as red or yellow ones, cost more to insure. This car insurance-related myth could affect the car that you purchase. Instead of looking at the color of a car, car insurance companies look at the make, model, body type, and engine size of the car.

You should wait to tell the dealer about your possible trade-in

Many people believe that waiting until the last minute to tell the dealer that you have a car you’d like to trade in. The “logic” behind this is that they’ll be more likely to give you a better deal at the last second. This actually elongates the process, as it requires you and the dealer to fill out the necessary documents. The sooner you let the dealer know about your trade in, the better.
