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 Where Can You Find the Best Used Cars for Sale? GMC Sierra K1500 SLE Z71 Bloomer WI 54724 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 GMC Sierra K1500 SLE Z71 Bloomer WI 54724 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 Finding A Good Used Car Dealer GMC Sierra K1500 SLE Z71 Bloomer WI 54724 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 GMC Sierra K1500 SLE Z71 Bloomer WI 54724 price for a used car – a seller, whether private or dealer, is entitled to ask whatever price they like for their car. It’s simple capitalism, with supply and demand determining the price. A salesman is not obliged to offer you a lower price, just as a customer is not under any obligation to pay a higher price. It comes down GMC Sierra K1500 SLE Z71 Bloomer WI 54724 to who wants the deal more and is prepared to concede more ground, or who is better at negotiating a deal.
Although it’s not illegal for a dealer to advertise the same car at two (or more) different prices, it’s not exactly an example of outstanding business ethics if their used car pricing is handled like this as a matter of course.
It GMC Sierra K1500 SLE Z71 Bloomer WI 54724 can get more serious if the dealer refuses to sell you the car at the advertised price. We are no longer talking about a dealer omitting to mention that a car is advertised and available for a cheaper price, but actually refusing to honour their own advertised pricing. These days, this sort of behaviour is thankfully becoming rare.

In the past, an error in an old-style newspaper or magazine ad couldn’t be changed once it had been printed (assuming that it is a genuine error, rather than simply a dubious selling technique).
In this sort of situation, you need to have proof of the GMC Sierra K1500 SLE Z71 Bloomer WI 54724 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. If you hold your ground, and if you start mentioning phrases like ‘false advertising’ and ‘breach GMC Sierra K1500 SLE Z71 Bloomer WI 54724 of trading standards’, dealers will generally concede fairly quickly. But is this the sort of dealer you want to be buying your car from?
