The moment of truth has arrived. The new car sales contract is in front of you. The finance manager is extending the pen so you can sign on the dotted line.
You might have been told that you should read contracts before you sign them. But this document is long and packed with fine print. What should you look at? And are there any clauses in it that will bite you later?
Take heart. The contract isn't quite as complicated as it looks. In fact, in most states, it's actually a standard form that is the same at all dealerships. So it's not so much the language in the document that is your concern. Instead, it is the numbers in the little boxes that you need to review carefully.
