    CR Expert Advice
    Preparing to Buy an Electric Vehicle
    Don't Be Influenced By Ads
    Create your list of cars to test drive based on research, focusing on reliable cars, with high owner satisfaction, good safety marks, and strong road test performance.
    Don't Scrimp on Safety
    Advanced safety features can help avoid an accident or lessen the impact of a crash. They are widely available on EVs, although may not be standard on all trims.
    No Thanks to Extras
    Dealers generally make most of their new-car profit from financing and the sale of a wide variety of extra add-on products like theft protection, asset protection, prepaid maintenance, tire and key replacement plans, VIN etching, and extended warranties.
    Pass on Special Events
    Don't shop during special sales events solicited by direct mail. These are often run by contracted specialists trained in techniques that increase a dealer's profit.
    Smart Financing
    Resist the temptation to focus strictly on monthly payments to consider the long-term impact of your finance strategy, considering loan rate, interest paid, trade in, and even depreciation.
    Fees to Avoid
    If you see additional "pre-delivery inspection," "delivery," "destination," or "dealer prep" charges on a second window sticker, you should refuse to pay them.
