2 Things You Need To Know About Buying A New Car

Posted on

If you are in the market to buy a new car you might be wondering what you should do to make sure that you get the best deal on the car, while still getting the car that you want. There is an art to buying a car from a dealership, which is why it is so important that you educate yourself before you walk into a dealership to buy a car. Here are some things you should know.

1. The Price Is Not Set In Stone

Each dealership will choose the price on their cars. All dealers get their cars at a wholesale price. Then they mark it up based on the costs of the car for them. For instance, they had to pay to transport the car, they have to pay for the employees for caring for it. They have to pay a sales tax, and so much more. Thus, when you see a price of a car, you see what the dealer thinks it is worth, plus whatever they want to profit off the car. This means that you have wiggle room on the price. Never accept the ticket price. They mark it up expecting you to negotiate it. This is why you need to be ready to go back and forth a couple times on the price. Do your research on other dealerships and see what they are charging. Talk to other people who have recently purchased cars and see what they paid for it. This will help you to have concrete numbers to give the salesperson. If you say "I can get this for x amount of dollars across the street at another dealer" they will be more likely to work with you.

2. Don't Be Desperate

Another important thing you need to know is that you can't go into a dealership acting desperate about getting a car. If you let them know that you are leaving with the car whether you get a good deal or not, they are going to be less likely to work with you. This is why you need to be prepared mentally to walk away, even if you love the car. Know that there will be other cars and that you need the right car, but you also need it at the right price. Many times you will walk away and they will call you later offering a better deal.
