Before you sign, go over the document to ensure everything is correct. You’ll want to look for typos in your personal information, of course. More importantly, though, you’ll want to make sure you agree with the amount of money you’re being asked to pay.
The contract will list all of the fees included in your purchase. If you’re unsure about any of them, ask for details. If you were promised certain add-on features for a reduced rate, make sure that’s how they’re listed in the contract. Once you sign the contract, you agree to pay all of the fees listed.
Finally, ensure that all of your financing information — especially your interest rate and down payment amount — are correct. If you’re trading in your old car to help offset the cost of a new one, make sure the contract includes the agreed-upon value of that trade.
