How can I speed up the car-buying process?

"I need a car ASAP so I can commute to my new job. How do I buy a car quickly?


“It’s understandable that you’re in a bit of a rush. However, you should be careful to not make any rash decisions, as buying a car is a big investment that can affect your financial situation for years to come.
If you’re financing your car, you can speed up the car-buying process by getting pre-approved for an auto loan. This also allows you to better negotiate the price when you do find the right car for you.
Another tip is to visit the dealership on a weekday. Dealerships tend to be more crowded and busy on weekends, which can slow the car-buying process on Saturdays and Sundays.
Lastly, be sure to bring all the necessary paperwork to buy a car. This includes your driver’s license, proof of income, and proof of auto insurance. “
