You guys know how much I love my city, Dallas, by now right? For those of you who don't know, I was born and raised in Richmond, Va, went to college (and stayed several years after college) in Knoxville, Tn, had a brief stint living in Lexington, Ky and found myself a place to call home - finally - in Dallas.
Since starting Dallas Love List, I get to hear about a lot of events before they're made available to the general public. Normally I get wind of food and beverage festivals, but today I wanted to talk to you about the upcoming DFW Auto Show. The DFW Auto Show is one of the largest new car and truck shows in the nation, and open to the public from March 22-26, 2017.
My dad was a car salesman for over 25 years, so my perspective on owning a car while growing up was totally skewed. He'd come home with a new dealer demo every three months, it was awesome! As a little kid he'd ask me what kind of car he should try and track down next, I of course used to scream CONVERTIBLE!
As an adult now, I of course realized this is in no way shape or form normal. A couple of years after I had moved to Dallas, I bought my first car all on my own. I had no help, and went dealership to dealership with my haggling game face on. I had done my research and I knew what I wanted to pay. I think I did pretty well, considering car buying (especially as a single female) can be VERY intimidating.
One thing I for sure didn't have, but will 100% use when it is time to buy my next car is the Capital One® Auto Navigator® which simplifies both the car buying and car financing process. It essentially adds transparency to an otherwise hectic and intimidating process by allowing the consumer to see if they pre-qualify for auto financing before they visit a dealer, without impacting their credit score. You can browse 3 million cars from over 12,000 participating dealers, and see car history reports, dealer ratings, car reviews and get a personalized APR and monthly payment on each car once you pre-qualify for financing.
So for all my Dallasites, as one of the title sponsors of this year’s DFW Auto Show, Capital One will show attendees how they’ve developed Auto Navigator with customer needs top of mind. At the Capital One Auto Navigator Garage, located in Hall F of the Show, car enthusiasts and potential car buyers can learn more about how they can find and finance the car perfect for them with Capital One’s Auto Navigator!
