Should I do direct lending or finance through the dealership?
Which is the better option: Direct lending or financing through the dealership? I've heard mixed stories on both.
“Direct lending allows you to shop around and find the best rate, but it also takes time to do so.
This will usually result in a lower interest rate for your car loan.
Financing through the dealership is quick and easy, but you may not always get the best rate.
If you decide to go through the dealership, keep an eye out for promotional rates, such as 0% financing or something of the like that can help you save money.
No matter which method you choose, you will likely need a sizeable down payment, so come prepared to either lender with your amount in mind.”

If I have a AAA membership, do I have to buy my next car battery from AAA?
Will AAA service a batter that isn't their brand? The car battery in my Nissan Pathfinder is on its last leg. It has lasted six years and I have a feeling I will need a new one soon. I know AAA will come and tow my car if it dies while I am on the road, but will I have to buy my next battery from AAA?
