Description

Hi everyone, welcome to the Ultimate Car Guide! I'm Michael Feinstein, a self-proclaimed car nut, and I'll be showing you how to buy or lease your next new or used car the right way. Contrary to popular belief, looking for a car can be a lot of fun, but only if you know what you're looking for and how to make sure you are getting the best bang for your buck. There is a lot of material in this course, but I have designed it to be easily accessible, whether you want the entire rundown or just want to see the best configuration for a given car. The structure of this course is as follows:

1. Figure out what you need your new vehicle to do for you. Be patient, follow this guide, and you will get what you want.

2. Choose the style of vehicle that satisfies your needs and desires.

3. Decide how you're going to pay for your vehicle. This one can get a little dicey because the best choice for you depends on several factors. We will go over these in detail.

4a. Decide whether you want to buy new or used. I'll go over the pricing pros and cons of both.

4b. Learn the proper vehicle-buying process. I'll go over the various resources that will make your automobile hunt much less stressful and more fun.

5. Learn basic car stats. You might not care about horsepower, torque, all wheel drive, and other technical bits, but they are very important. I'll break them down so they're easy to understand.

6. Knowing your options. Options can add anywhere from hundreds to thousands to tens of thousands of dollars, depending which type of car and brand you are looking at.

Who is the target audience?
  • If you are looking to buy a new car, this course will be hugely beneficial.
  • If you are looking to buy a used car, every section except the new car guide will be hugely beneficial.
  • If you hate the idea of buying a car on your own, this is for you.
  • If you know nothing about cars, including companies, vehicle types, etc.., this is for you.
  • If you want to be able to help anybody you know buy a car, this is for you.
  • If you want to learn the basics about horsepower and drivetrains, you're in luck!

Michael has varied interests that have served him and others well.

He is a passionate musician and has been producing music for over ten years under the moniker of Tuned Logic. He is very experienced with both Apple's GarageBand and Logic Pro music production software. He has two studio albums released and is working on a third. While he loves making music on his own, he also has a passion for teaching and wants to give back to the community.

Michael is also very fond of automobiles and is known in his circles as the resident advisor on all things cars.

Furthermore, since the tender age of three (!), Michael has been helping others use technology more effectively in their daily routines. Whether the matter involves PCs, smartphones, tablets, home entertainment, or anything else, he can get you up to speed and pointed in the right direction.
