How to Find Great Deals on Cars

Nov-9-2017 By Frugal 101

Buying a car can be a daunting task, especially if you don’t know where to start. Read this article to find out how to find great deals on cars and make your experience much more pleasant.

TIME.

The best time to score great deals on cars is the end of the month. Many salesmen are assigned a monthly quota and if they reach it they are awarded bonuses. If a salesman hasn’t sold enough card during the month (and with the way the economy has been, it is very likely), you have great chances of scoring a great deal at the end of the month when he/she is more motivated.

If you know which model you are looking for and if you are OK with buying a car which is not a brand new model, it is a good idea to start shopping for it when (or right before) the new models start coming in. Sales people often like to get rid of the older models as soon as possible, so this is a great time for you to jump in.

Some dealerships offer promotions during weekends, so if you can’t or don’t want to wait until the end of the month or until the new models will start rolling in, visit your local dealerships on a weekend.

RESEARCH

Before you get out of your house use your friend Google and do as much research as you can (about the cars you want to buy, the prices that they are worth etc.). There are plenty of car price quotes websites on the web, so don’t forget to take advantage of them.

REBATES

Find out if there are any rebates available for a particular car. You may be surprised to find out how much money you can save in rebates. Unfortunately, many people don’t bother doing their research, so they pay much more than they could have for their cars.

USED CAR INFO

Remember that mileage is not the only thing to look at when buying a used car. Things such irregular maintenance can cause plenty of invisible damage to the car. Get a full overview of the vehicle, because if you don’t, you may end up paying for it later.

PATIENCE

Most importantly, take your time. Sales people can be very pushy, so don’t let them make you believe that unless you buy a car today, you will never get a better deal. Sales people are trained to make you buy a car the first time they see you, because they assume that if you don’t, you are not going to come back (the competition is high and they know it!).

Seriously, take your time. This is probably the best advice I have ever heard.

With enough research, patience, good negotiation skills and good timing you are destined to find great deals on cars; find the car of your dreams and hopefully, afford it.
