Buying that first car

You have passed the written test and you are booked into a driving school for March break. Or, perhaps you have finished that part and now have your G2. Soon, if not already, you will be browsing the auto magazines and car lots looking for that great deal. But what will it look like when you find it? How will you recognize it? With so many vehicles to choose from it will help you to make a good decision when you have some basic information on the different makes and models - and the often huge price variance between one year and the next. London Public Library can provide you with access to many reliable books and web sites that will answer many of your car purchase questions. We have copies of the Canadian Red Book, the Complete Canadian Used Car Guide and, Road and Track Buyer's guides.  Online you can check out the subject category Buying a Car, Truck or Van  that will link you to reliable buying guides and reference web sites. So, whatever your investment dollars, make sure you are investing wisely. Especially if it is your first car. Pat
