10. Confidence is key!
Remember to be polite to the salesperson, even as you bargain for your dream car - they can help you score an amazing deal for your budget. Whenever possible, negotiate with the manager as opposed to the salesperson, because the manager usually has more authority to make extensive deals.
11. Look for older inventory
The cycle of selling off older models so that new models come in applies. The longer the stock sits on the parking lot, the more the dealer will want to get rid of it. The dealer will want you to leave with the car, so there are some tips to make sure you get the best deal. The sticker on the driver’s side door gives you the manufacturing date of the car, which will help you get a good deal. Another sign is around the car edges where a typical car wash can miss spotting dust accumulation, therefore indicating that the car has been there for some time.
Remember that a car is supposed to last you at least ten years, so do not just purchase something because it looks good on the outside; buy something wisely and one that will not cost you an arm and a leg when you use it. Having an open mind is important so that you avoid bad deals, and keep several alternatives in mind instead of one make or model so that you have a rewarding experience. Study what other shoppers are buying and take the time to make a solid decision.
