If you are planning on buying a new car you and probably wondering what you should do to get the best deal possible. There are many different tricks and tips you can utilize to help you get what you need. Here are some things that you should never do when buying a car.
1. Tell The Salesman Your Bottom Line
One of the first questions the salesman will ask you is what your bottom line is. This means they are wondering how high you will go. You may have gone in there thinking you could spend up to $10,000 but you would rather spend closer to $8,000. Never tell the salesman that you are wiling to go up to 10k. If you do they will have no incentive to make it lower for you. Of course they are going to try and make the bigger profit, so you should play your cards close to chest. If they do keep asking you bottom line, give them a lower number than what you are really willing to pay, so that when the fees and all the extra things are added on, you are still in budget.
2. Go During The Weekend
Most people try to go car shopping on the weekend because it is the easiest time for work and other commitments. However, this is also the busiest time with the dealerships. The more busy the dealership the less time they will have to sit down with you to get you a better deal. It may not even be that they don't want to give you a good deal, it just means that there are too many people competing for the cars that they can't work with you as well.
To get the best deals try to go midweek when the salesmen have plenty of time to work with you. In addition, if you can go during the end of the fiscal month, usually right before the new offers change over, they will be more incentivized to sell.
3. Be Desperate
If you are desperate you are more likely to make a poor decision. You should never go into a dealership with the mentality that you HAVE to have a certain car. If you do you won't be able to make a rational decision. Always be ready to walk away if the price doesn't work for you. Make the dealership earn your business.
By avoiding these mistakes you can have a positive experience buying a car.Share

Hi there, my name is Pete. Welcome to my website. When I was in college, I purchased my first car from a private seller. The car immediately broke down on my way home from the seller's location. I was stuck with fixing the vehicle before I could even start driving it. From then on, whenever I needed to buy a new or used car, I went straight to the auto dealer lot. Auto dealers make sure the vehicles sold on their lots are in great shape and will last for miles before needing any repairs. I will use this site to explore the things to look for in a good auto dealer lot. I hope you will come back often to learn about this important subject.
