5 Common Mistakes People Make At The Car Dealership

Buying a car is a dream for many, there is hardly anyone who does not enjoy a nice long drive. It is practically not possible for everyone to invest in a brand-new car, you can get in touch with a good dealer to buy a pre-owned premium car. Buying a car is not easy at all, it can be stressful especially when you are not much aware of the car-buying process. Many dealers might charge a bomb for used cars and even for a new car; they try to make as much money as possible from the customers, by quoting very high prices.

 But the next question popping your mind will be “how to buy a car from a dealer " or "how to buy a used car from a dealer “? There is a certain process of buying a car from a dealer. Make sure to approach a well-informed dealer who is confident and does not charge any hidden fee. Here are the 5 common mistakes at car dealerships made by people.

  1. Lack of awareness



Shopping for a car is not as easy as buying some random clothes or shoes. The new buyers prefer to buy cars via dealers. This makes the task a bit easy for the buyers, but the most common mistake at car dealerships made by people is lack of awareness. The showroom isn’t the right place for you to ask multiple questions about the car, you need to do a bit of homework. That includes comparing costs, knowledge about the specification, reading testimonials, checking reviews, estimating finance etc, comparing costs, negotiating prices etc, but it is always best to do detailed research before visiting a showroom or meeting a car dealer. This can turn out to be a major mistake made by car buyers.

  1. Negotiation



This is another common mistake made by car buyers, as dealers always promise to provide the best price. But there is a lot of scope to negotiate the price. The price suggested by the manufacturer is not the final number. It is better to negotiate the price or try to add up additional services to compensate for the high price.  If you are buying a car for the dealer, make sure you show the best negotiation skill and crack the best deal.

  1. Opting for dealer financing



Expecting to go ahead with the dealer financing is another major car buying mistake which increases the final payable amount. It is best to opt for your finance separately, you can also opt for the pre-approved loan. This will help you to compare the deals and negotiate. While also checking with the finance don’t miss to calculate the insurance cost. It is best to have your insurance provider, you can also cross-check the competitor insurance company before going for the offer given by the car dealer. Try to opt for the best premium car insurance to get easy claims.

  1. Be prepared to call off



There is no car deal which is too good to be taken on the first go. Be prepared to walk away if you do not find the car deal appealing. This is one of the common car buying mistakes which you should avoid at any cost. Do not buy the sale lines "this deal is only for 2 days", " we are giving this special offer only to you". If you are not happy with the offer just say "I am not comfortable going forward". Before buying you always have enough time to research, investigate and make a better decision. Dealers will do their best to finalise the deal on the same day. If you walk away there are high chances that they will give you a call in a day or two. If not, there are plenty of car dealers in the market who can provide you with better deals.

  1. Offering credit card



Another notable mistake when buying a car is handing over the credit card. Before making the deal, many dealers prefer to take your credit card for the documentation purpose. They usually hold the card during the negotiation, you might be pushed to decide that if you don’t make the deal, they will not give your credit card. There is no wonder that you will get a feeling of hostage at that point. The staff will want you to feel trapped and win the game of negotiation. When it comes to negotiation, you have more power, make sure not to fall into the trap of offering credit cards.

Buying a car is a tricky task, especially when you want to rely completely on the car dealer. Keep yourself well informed before you shell out the big money.  Check the insurance, hidden charges, financial planning, maintenance cost before finalizing with the car dealers.  Make sure also to avoid the above mentioned 5 common mistakes when buying a car.
