how to get awesome car deals

You don’t need to be told how important it is know about the best car deals to ensure you nab a good one. Before buying a car, there are some things you should make yourself aware of. Here are just a few of those.

Considerations to be made and things to be done before buying a car

  • Have a budget value ready for as to how much you can dish out on the car deal. It’s an essential part of the negotiations with the sales people that you have a clear budget in mind.
  • Determine the car you would like to buy. Go to several dealerships near you until you’ve seen and decide on a vehicle that falls within the budget decided on.
  • Sum up a cash offer for the car you have your eye on. A good way to do this is to calculate an offer that is 5 percent over the dealership’s actual cost of the car, leaving aside the MSRP or the manufacturer’s suggested retail price. The actual cost to the dealer is the difference between the invoice price of the car and the total rebates and incentives it received. Visit websites like InvoiceDealers.com and Edmunds.com, for free tools that give you free information on new car invoice prices and factory-to-dealer rebates and incentives.
  • While carrying out negotiations on the car deal, offer the deal that you have calculated. Sometimes they will give a counter offer; consider it to see if it’s too high. Don’t let the sales person get wind if you’re planning to pay cash; he’ll try and raise the sticker price to compensate for the lack of his chances at back-end sales or commissions from financing deals.

  • Advertise in a newspaper. Make the headline hard to miss, and provide a description and some photographs. Allude to an approximate price or set a range, but make this at least 5 to 10 percent more than what you’re willing to settle for.
  • When people call regarding the ad, answer the calls. Don’t let them individually see the car; tell them you’ll show it to them when you’re free, and specify when. Keep them in the dark about the presence of other potential buyers at the viewing.
  •  On the day, let anyone interested test-drive the car, and let them make their own offers for it. If you’ve kept the car in good condition, they try to outdo each other and you just might be able to pick from among the best car deals.

These are some of the ways to make sure you get a good car deal. Hope you find these tips of use.
