WHAT DO I NEED

TO DO BEFORE MAKING A

PURCHASE OFFER?
Even before starting to look at houses, find out what price house you can afford,
says syndicated columnist Dian Hymer.
Roughly speaking, Hymer says you can afford to buy a home equal in price to
three times your gross annual income.
More precisely, the price you can afford to pay for a home will depend on six
factors:







S Lenders also analyze your income in relation to your projected cost of home
ownership and outstanding debts to determine the size loan you can have.

* Hymersays yourhousing expense-to-income ratio is determined by calculating
your projected monthly housing expense, which consists of the principal and
interest payment on your new home loan, property taxes and hazard insurance.
The sum of these costs is referred toas PIT. Monthly homeowners'association
dues, if you're purchasing a condominium or townhouse, and private mortgage
insurance are added to the PITI.
S Your housing expense-to-income ratio should fall in the 28 to 33 percent range,
although some lenders will go higher under certain circumstances.
Your total debt-to-income ratio should be in the 34 to 38 percent range. /

Chevrolet stalks Ford for number one spot in U.S.


By John Brooks
Critical Communications
Chevrolet is in reach of overtak-
ing Ford as the No. 1 brand in the
U.S. market. Chevrolet has trailed
its cross-town rival for the past 18
years. But through the first 10
months of this year, the two brands
each had 15.7 percent of the U.S.
market for new cars and light
trucks. Through the end of October,
Chevrolet sold 2.26 million light
vehicles, while Ford sold 2.25 mil-
lion.
Executives at GM are hopeful
that the company's year-end clear-
ance will enable Chevrolet to come
out on top. But Ford, which has
touted itself as the U.S. market's
best-selling brand since the mid-
1980s, has taken steps to maintain
its leadership position.
However, both the Chevrolet
and Ford brands registered sales
declines in excess of 25 percent in
October as foreign competitors
continued making big inroads in
the U.S. market.

As GM shrinks,
Toyota grows
While General Motors is teeter-
ing on.the edge of bankruptcy and
considering shutting down more
plants, Toyota is looking to contin-
ue raising its manufacturing capaci-
ty in North America.
As demand for its vehicles con-
tinues to rise in the U.S., Toyota is
"scrambling" to find a site for a new
plant to produce more engines and
transmissions in the U.S., state
company executives.
More U.S. factories would help
Toyota maintain its ratio of North
American-made to imported vehi-
cles well above 60% in the U.S. mar-
ket.


Toyota has five operational
assembly plants in North America,
one under construction and anoth-
er just announced. Other plants in-
North America produce compo-
nents, including engines and trans-
missions.

Japanese minivans
top safety tests
The 2006 versions of the Toyota
Sienna, Nissan Quest and Honda
Odyssey scored the highest marks
in side-impact crash tests run by the
Insurance Institute for Highway
Safety.
The lowest marks awarded by
the insurance industry funded
group went to 2006 Ford Freestar
and Mazda MPV models without
side air bags.
A Ford Freestar with optional
head curtain air bags for all three
rows of seats and front seat-mount-
ed torso air bags received the insti-
tute's second-highest rating,
acceptable, -as did. its similarly
equipped corporate twin, the Mer-
cury Monterey.
In the institute's side-impact test,
vehicles are struck with a barrier
moving at 31 mph. The test is not
required to pass federal safety stan-
dards.

DaimlerChrysler
sells shares
DaimlerChrysler said it has sold
its remaining 12.4 percent share of
Mitsubishi Investment firm Gold-
man Sachs reportedly paid $588
million for the troubled company.
DaimlerChrysler once held 37
percent of Mitsubishi Motors and
the two carmakers jointly develop
and produce engines and share use
of vehicle architecture.


Toyota produces Civic most popular
10 millionth engine car with thieves


Toyota said in a news release
that its four engine plants in North
America have reached the ten mil-
lion mark in engine production.
Toyota also operates three casting
plants to support the company's
powertrain operations.
Toyota's engine facilities are in
Kentucky, West Virginia, Missouri,
Alabama and Ontario, where Toy-
ota's engine production now
employs nearly 3,500 and reflects
investment of $2.23 billion.
In addition to Toyota's current
powertrain operations, there are
several major expansions under-
way in West Virginia,.Alabama and
Tennessee, the company said.
These expansions are adding an
additional $614 million of invest-
ment and 720 new jobs to Toyota's
North American powertrain opera-
tions.
By 2008, Toyota said it will have
the annual capacity to build 1.81
million cars and trucks, 1.44 million
engines, and 600,000 automatic
transmissions in North America.

VW cuts Phaeton
from its lineup
Volkswagen will pull its Phaeton
sedan from the U.S. market in Feb-
ruary2006.
The Phaeton, which sells for
between $68,000 and $104,000,
"fell a little bit-short of our expecta-
tions," Volkswagen spokesman
Tony Fouladpour said. The compa-
ny is currently selling only 90
Phaetons a month, he added.
VW launched the car in late
2003, but sales have not met initial
targets. The Phaeton will continue
to be sold in Europe.

The nation's motor vehicle
thieves continue to favor imports
over domestic brands as their tar-
gets of opportunity, according to
the annual "Hot Wheels" study,
which is part of the "Hot Spots"
auto theft report issued by the
National Insurance Crime Bureau
(NICB), a non-profit organization
funded by insurance companies.
The study examines data report-
ed to the National Crime Informa-
tion Center and determines the
vehicle make, model, and model
year most reported stolen in 2004,
according to a news release.
For 2004, the top ten most stolen
vehicles in the United States by
make, model, and model year
were:
1. 1995 Honda Civic
2. 1989 Toyota Camry
3. 1991 HondaAccord
4.1994 Dodge Caravan
5. 1994 Chevrolet Full Size C/K
1500 Pickup
6.1997 Ford Fl50 Series
7.2003 Dodge Ram Pickup
8. 1990 Acura Integra

they're $2,500 or less

No fee, no catch, no problems!


9. 1988 Toyota Pickup
10. 1991 Nissan Sentra
In 2004, 1,237,114 motor vehi-
cles were reported stolen, which is
a decrease of 23,357 vehicles from
2003. Overall in the United States,
motor vehicle theft was down by
1.9 percent.
The FBI Uniform Crime Report
divides the nation into four regions.
In the Northeast, with 18.6 percent
of the nation's population, auto
theft was down 9.7 percent from
2003.
In the Midwest, with 22.4 per-
cent of the population, auto theft
was down 4.4 percent.
The South, with 36.1 percent of
the population, showed a decrease
in vehicle theft of 2.9 percent.
Meanwhile the West, with 23.0
percent of the population, was the
only region that posted an increase
- 36.2 percent over its 2003
number.
NICB said in a news release that
it encourages everyone to follow its
"layered approach" to auto theft
protection by employing simple,
low-cost suggestions to make their
vehicles less attractive to thieves.
NICB's four layers are:

Common Sense
The cheapest form of defense is
to simply employ the anti-theft
devices that are standard on all
vehicles: locks. Lock your car and
take your keys.

Warning Device
Having and using a visible or
audible warning device is another
item that can ensure that your car
remains where you left it.

Immobilizing Device
"Kill" switches, fuel cut-offs, and
smart keys are among the devices
which are high and low tech, but
extremely effective. Generally
speaking, if your car won't start, it
won't get stolen.

Tracking Device
On the higher end of high tech
are the newer devices which can
alert you and law enforcement
- the moment an unauthorized
user moves your vehicle.
