Get A Deal

A lot of people are intimidated when they go to buy a new car. They never know what to do to get the best deal possible and in the end they usually overpay horribly. There is a science to buying a new car and negotiating the best deal possible. The science to negotiating a good car deal is to research and know what you are doing.
If you know what kind of car that you want, what make and what model you can gather all of the information that you need to discover what the item is worth. Once you know exactly what the dealership pays for the vehicle then you can figure out what you really need to pay for it. You will have to calculate what the salesperson may accept for the lowest commission possible, because of course they are in it for that money. If you only offer the bare minimum of what the car is worth then you will most likely be turned down. If the salesperson has nothing to lose, then your walking away will not matter to them at all.

The next thing to know is when to go and buy the car. Certain times of the month are better for buying due to quotas that need to be filled. Also knowing what time of year to negotiate a deal is very beneficial. Every product out there has a season and cars are not any different. If you live in area that is prone to weather such as hail, you can argue for a better deal if the cars on the lot sustain damage. The dealership can no longer sell them at the price they thought, so you can knock some of the excess costs off by pointing out the defects or attending a sale that is based around the less than pristine items.

If you really are having trouble finding the right price to pay for a car it’s also worth a shot to call and let them actually put together a price to pay for the car.

Finally, you need to be prepared with a bottom line price in your mind. Know your own budget and do not waiver from it. Stand firm and do not be tempted by upgrades and surprise packages. You should be aware of the standard warranty packages that are available and if you choose to take one, make sure that you do not add anything on. Remember, something minor such as any extra feature is going to cost more and may make the vehicle that you want unaffordable in the long run.
