How often have you looked at a used car advertised online for, say, £12,995 and decided to visit the dealership to look at the car. But when you arrived, you discovered that the price on the car was actually £14,995?
It is not unusual for used car dealers to advertise the same car at different prices on different websites, or to have Hustle 101: Learn to Buy and Sell Used Cars for Profit Chevrolet Silverado LTZ Gilmanton WI 54743 a higher price on the car window and a lower price advertised on the web. There are usually two reasons for this: 1) if a customer hasn’t seen the lower price advertised elsewhere, the dealer can try and sell the car at the higher price; or 2) the dealer can claim that the car has ‘already been reduced’, to try make Chevrolet Silverado LTZ Gilmanton WI 54743 the car look like a better deal. This strategy is used to stop a customer haggling for a lower price.
Plenty of used car dealers are very slippery at handling the question of “Isn’t this car advertised for less on the internet?” Often, the dealer will ‘suddenly remember’ that it has ‘only just been reduced this morning’ or make up some nonsense Don’t Get Fooled: 5 Tips For Buying A Good Used Car Chevrolet Silverado LTZ Gilmanton WI 54743 about ‘web-only offers’, or mutter something about how they ‘haven’t had enough time to update the price in the car window’.

The reality is that there is no recommended retail Chevrolet Silverado LTZ Gilmanton WI 54743 price for a used car – a seller, whether private or dealer, is entitled to ask whatever price they like for their car.

It comes down Chevrolet Silverado LTZ Gilmanton WI 54743 to who wants the deal more and is prepared to concede more ground, or who is better at negotiating a deal.

It Chevrolet Silverado LTZ Gilmanton WI 54743 can get more serious if the dealer refuses to sell you the car at the advertised price.

In this sort of situation, you need to have proof of the Chevrolet Silverado LTZ Gilmanton WI 54743 lower advertised price. With online ads, it is easy for you to look up the advertised price on your smartphone in seconds, but a dealer can also change their advertised price just as quickly, so always print out the advertisement before you visit the dealership.

But is this the sort of dealer you want to be buying your car from?
