Dealing With The Car Dealer

Aug 17, 2007
If you are looking for a new car or an old one, then you will have to go to a car dealer. A good dealer can get you some excellent deals where as there are people who are unscrupulous and will take advantage of a buyer. So be careful in your selection, and watch out for tricks!

When you choose to buy a car, you have to be careful and make the best choice possible. Today's Internet growth has made it easy for purchasing a car. You need only log in to a site and finalize the payment. Then, you will be completing the deal off line and receiving the car.

However is it safe? One thing a consumer should always remember is that cars are long term purchases and can not be taken lightly. So when you buy online, remember to ask for a warranty and money back policy within at least 30 days of receiving the machine. This will give you some time to try out the model and find out if it suits you.

If you do not like beginning, then the Internet is the right place for you. Sites like Cars, Invoice Dealers, Cars Direct, Autoweb, Autos, Edmunds.com, AutoUSA and Car.com can be trusted to give you a good deal.

No matter how you purchase the car, you need to be aware of many things. There are many scams that a car dealer might pull on you. For example, you purchase a machine. The dealer gives you a good financing option with good APR. However 2 weeks later, the dealer might tell you that you did not qualify for the deal. Car dealers pull this scam on people with a bad credit rating below 650 usually. If this happens to you, then file a complaint at your consumer protection agency. Like the Better business bureau in US it's usually another thing to remember if you are shopping online is that never go away from a safe site like E bay or any other selling site you may be using. If you trust an unknown seller and do business with him out side these sites, there is a high chance of you getting cheated! So you must always stay on the site and use their services to carry your deal through.

Not all car dealers are bad. However, it is better to be careful than sorry later. You are usually spending a lot of money and be on the safer side unless you want to lose it! Do a research on your dealer always it helps.
