Learn the fundamental steps when you want to save buying a new car:
1. Negotiate the price of the car as if you were going to buy it. Only once you have a firm price should you bring up the fact that you want to lease. Leasing, after all, it is a form of financing.
2. Mileage limits, down payment, and option-to-buy price can all be negotiated. Just as with a loan, the more you put down, the smaller your payments and finance charges will be.
3. Negotiate the lease money factor, which is the number used by lessors to determine the interest portion of your monthly payment.
4. If it’s included with the lease, consider Guaranteed Auto Protection (GAP) insurance to protect yourself in case the vehicle is stolen or totaled.
5. In order to keep monthly payments as low as possible, shop for cars that don’t depreciate as quickly.
6. Don’t sign a lease that extends beyond the factory warranty. After all, this protection is one of the biggest appeals of a lease!
7. Pay attention to end-of-lease procedures and fees, like returning the car with new tires. Make sure the policies and fees are clear and fair.
8. Buy additional miles up front if you anticipate running over the standard allotment. Often, you can have the money you’ve paid for additional, unused miles returned at the end of the lease.
9. If applicable, be sure your trade-in value is deducted from the leased car’s capitalized cost.
10. If you’re considering buying after the lease ends, first make sure the vehicle is worth at least the purchase price. That often won’t be the case if you had entered into a subvented lease, for which the automaker artificially raised the residual value. If the vehicle is worth less than the buyout price, try bargaining down the price. If you can’t, walk away.

For over a century, Detroit has hosted an annual auto show. During the first several decades of its existence, however, the its focus was strictly regional. In 1987, a group of car dealers within the Detroit Auto Dealers Association (DADA) asked: Why not make the event truly international in scope?
The dealers traveled to Japan and Europe, encouraging manufacturers there to bring their new brands and new-vehicle introductions to Detroit for the newly-named North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). The automakers did just that, leading to the growth and success of the NAIAS. Within a few short years, the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) has achieved their goal. The NAIAS continually introduces bold new features to enhance attendees’ experiences and deliver exceptional value to media, industry and the public.
This year, the NAIAS celebrates its 25th year. Thanks to the vision and dedication of the 1989 organizing committee, and the efforts of Detroit area auto dealers who’ve since served on the organizing committee, the NAIAS has earned a top spot among auto shows around the world.

Toyota’s first hydrogen-powered car is still a year away from production, but experts already predict it will be a hit.
With the global energy crisis pushing innovation, fuel cell electric vehicles will be in our future sooner than many thought, and in much larger numbers than people expect.
Toyota’s hydrogen car, called FCV for now, uses hydrogen as fuel for a battery. The engine emits only water vapor as exhaust. Toyota anticipates the car will be for sale in the U.S. as early as in 2015. Rival such as Hyundai and Honda have also announced plans to sell similar vehicles in the same year.
Thus far,Toyota plans to focus on selling cars in California at first. The vehicles will be priced from $50,000 to $100,000, aiming for the lower end of the price range. The car will have a range of 300 miles, accelerate from zero to 60 MPH in 10 seconds, and its tank can be refueled in three to five minutes.
As far as refueling goes, the first 10,000 vehicles will be supported with only 68 refueling stations located between San Francisco and San Diego. The state of California has allotted $200 million to build about 20 fueling stations by 2015, 40 by 2016 and 100 by 2024. Experts believe that all the cars in California could be served by using 15 percent of the 10,000 gas stations currently in the state, provided they are spaced correctly.
