Some Tips for Before You Buy a Car

Image result for Some Tips for Before You Buy a Car

This is a good time to buy a car—new cars and used ones, too. Dealer lots are overstocked, and there aren’t many shoppers kicking the tires in showrooms these days.

No one knows that better than Jeffrey Brown, CEO of Ally Financial. Ally is one of the biggest auto lenders in the U.S. The giant bank handles auto financing for more than 4 million consumers. It’s been in business for nearly 100 years under the GMAC name—General Motors Acceptance Corporation. It was rebranded as Ally Financial in 2009 when GM spun off the unit during the financial crisis.

Speaking to Fortune’s Susie Gharib, Brown says that used cars are the one bright spot in the auto market these days. “The used car market remains very attractive. Very strong,” he says. “It’s almost three times the size of the new car market and about 50 percent of the business we do today is in the form of used.”

So it’s not surprising that automakers are offering special incentives and deep discounts to shoppers interested in getting a new car. And even with all the bargains, Brown says it still makes sense to negotiate better deals.

“The reality I think is dealers know that they’re going to have to negotiate prices down. That’s part of the normal buying process,” says Brown. “And I’d still say it holds true, last day of the month, it’s still a pretty attractive time for consumers to go inside a dealership and get the best deal.”

Best Buy is currently selling the HDHomeRun Connect for $70

hdhomerunconnect 3

If you’ve been thinking about going the cord-cutter route, consider this a sign. Best Buy is selling the SiliconDust HDHomeRun Connect for $70 right now. This external TV tuner features two tuners, allowing you to watch over-the-air (OTA) broadcast TV on two sets or to record one show while watching the other.

The Connect’s specifications say it supports up to 1080p, but broadcast TV is usually 1080i. That’s still 1920-by-1080 resolution, however. The one extra thing you will need in addition to the tuner is a digital antenna.

Once you’re all set up the Connect allows you to pause, rewind, and record broadcast TV. It also works with “most DLNA TVs,” allowing you to hook the device into your router for a multi-room setup.

When we reviewed the Connect back in 2015, we really liked this box. It’s a solid tool for cord cutters who still want to pick up local broadcasts for live sports and the like. You can also use it in concert with Plex and a PC as a heavy-duty DVR.

The one thing the Connect lacked when we reviewed it two years ago was any kind of first-party software to access the tuner on devices. That has since changed, with apps available for Windows 10, Mac, Linux, and Android.
