Used Car Dealers And More Questions To Ask
When it comes to buying a used car, there are a number of questions that you should be asking of the dealer. Here are some more questions to ask so as to get the information you need and to show the dealer that you are nobody's fool.
Where Did You Get This Car From?
Dealers are unlikely to give you the exact details but you want as much information as you can get. You can assume that this is a hard sell if the car came from another dealer. If used cars were bought at an auction you will want to check to make sure that it has been fully checked for any problems.
What Length Of Time Will You Be Able To Take The Car For A Test Drive?
You want to take the car for a good test drive over different types of driving surface so you will need plenty of time to do this. Don't bring anyone with you if they are going to be too distracting you definitely don't want to bring the kids. Try not to fall into conversation with the dealer during the test drive; you want to be able to listen for car noises. And you may also find that the dealer lets some vital information about the car slip in order to fill up the uncomfortable silence.
Are You Going To Get Any Extras With The Purchase?
It is best to leave this question until after you have got the best possible price. A dealer often has a number of things that he can give away free if he feels it is in his interests and might get you to close on the deal. Some of the things worth asking for would be extra services or a few free oil changes. A lot of dealers will want to give you as little as possible so you have to bargain hard.
When you think it's time to look out for used cars, you may end up much better off by thoroughly researching the cars that interest you. Good research lets you find only the best models available. Once you've finished, you could find youself driving away from the dealers in a used rover or even a used volvo.
