Top Five Things to Look for in a Car Dealership!

Jul 17, 2008
Cars are a big deal. Most of us spend quite a bit of time sitting in a car; whether we're driving it, riding in it or just plain sitting in it! And in addition to the fact that we spend a large portion of our time there, it's also the second largest purchase in most people's lives. When you decide to buy a new car you've got a lot of decisions ahead of you. At San Tan Honda Superstore of Chandler we help our customers make those decisions. We definitely want to sell cars; it's the purpose of a dealership. But the method of selling the cars can vary greatly from dealership to dealership. At San Tan we want to sell cars to happy customers.

Other dealerships don't care about the "happy" so much as the sale and quick departure of car buyers. When you decide to drop by a new car dealership make sure the very first thing you do is to check out the dealership and make sure it's a good option!

As a favor to consumers who may someday want to buy a Honda while they're in Chandler, Arizona...we're willing to guide you in the right direction with a list of 5 things you should make sure your dealership offers you:

1. Nice salesmen. And not just because it's enjoyable, but because the stereotypical car salesman are actually sometimes the ones you end up with on the car lot and you won't enjoy it! A good dealership will train their sales associates to give customers a little bit of space. They might even leave you to wander into the showroom on your own and browse through the inventory a little bit before they greet you and offer to help you. This method is much more enjoyable than the tried and true drag the car buyers from their vehicles before they've even come to a full stop!

2. Choose a dealership with an Internet division! It's much easier to research current specials and deals at your leisure online. A good dealership will not only have an Internet division with exclusive online specials, but they will always honor the Internet specials upon which you've based your purchase!

3. Good dealerships will have salesmen that guide you through your purchase; not drag you kicking and screaming. If you find your salesman bossing you around or insisting you "wait" or "follow him", etc. you can rest assured they're practicing. They're leading up to the final act of "bossing" you into a car purchase that might not be right for you!

4. Look for a dealership whose salesmen are very knowledgeable, but not ridiculously opinionated. This is your new car; not the salesman's. So it doesn't really matter how many times he's been tempted to buy the loaded, high end model in the showroom. If you feel like looking at it; go ahead. But don't feel obligated to accommodate the suggestions of a salesman who continuously suggests vehicles that are not what you came in to buy.

5. And what about honesty? If a dealership is honest you'll never look back on your "monumental" car purchase with bitterness. Choosing an honest dealership means you will have a clear knowledge of your interest rate and payment information. Choosing an honest dealership means you will actually have the opportunity to take advantage of advertised specials. (If you are immediately told that the "advertised special" is already sold or is temporarily out of stock. Say thank you and walk away to find a dealership that actually honors their own advertising!)

Don't let a your next car buying experience be tainted by a less than stellar car dealership. It's your money. Make sure you're comfortable while you're spending it! It's the first step towards enjoying your ownership experience.
