Between 1/1/19 and 12/31/19, the average savings off MSRP experienced by consumers who connected with a TrueCar Certified Dealer through the GEICO Auto Buying Program and who were identified as buying a new vehicle from that Certified Dealer was $3,166. Your actual savings may vary based on multiple factors, including the vehicle you select, region, dealer, and applicable vehicle-specific manufacturer incentives, which are subject to change. The MSRP is determined by the manufacturer and may not reflect the price at which vehicles are generally sold in the dealer's trade area, as many vehicles are sold below MSRP. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

There are a number of difference between buying a car from a private seller and a dealership. The test drive part of the process is one of the most critical similarities, however. Never buy a car without test driving it first. Inspect the vehicle before you get on the road. Look for any exterior damage, check if any fluids are leaking and note the color of any smoke that comes from the exhaust pipe.

The leasing vs. financing decision depends on several factors, from your budget to your expected mileage to how long you plan to keep the car, says Alain Nana-Sinkam, vice president of strategic initiatives for the car-buying service TrueCar. Here are some of the questions to ask yourself, he says, to help decide which way you may want to go.

Normal wear and tear, such as worn tires and windshield wipers, is expected when you turn in a leased vehicle after three years; anything beyond that could be assessed a fee. If you want to avoid worrying about this, buying a car may be the better option.

Additionally, some insurance companies will give you a discount for buying insurance ahead of time. Not every company offers this discount, but if it's available, you can save 3% to 10% for buying in advance. For example, American Family gives you a discount if you buy your insurance more than seven days in advance.

Yes! Your car insurance policy will usually go into effect immediately after you purchase it. You can buy a policy online on your phone from anywhere, and you will be covered immediately. But keep in mind that the best way to find the lowest price is to compare quotes from multiple insurers, and that may be hard to do if you're buying a policy at the last minute.

Not necessarily. Car insurers don't charge extra just to activate your policy immediately. However, some insurers, like Travelers, do offer an advance-shopping discount for buying a policy that starts more than a few days after you buy, so you could be missing out on a possible discount by buying a policy the day you need it.

Getting same-day car insurance is easier than ever before. But while you will have access to the same rates and policies as you would if you bought coverage ahead of time, there are some disadvantages to buying immediate car insurance.

Buffett did buy back into GEICO in the late 1970s, purchasing $4.1 million worth of common stock. He then helped save the company by buying an additional $19.4 million of convertible stock in the company. He bought over $20 million more several years later.
