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 Finding A Good Used Car Dealer Nissan Leaf S Cadott WI 54727 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 Nissan Leaf S Cadott WI 54727 the car look like a better deal. This strategy is used to stop a customer haggling for a lower price.

Nissan Leaf S Cadott WI 54727 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 Nissan Leaf S Cadott WI 54727 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 Nissan Leaf S Cadott WI 54727 to who wants the deal more and is prepared to concede more ground, or who is better at negotiating a deal.

It Nissan Leaf S Cadott WI 54727 can get more serious if the dealer refuses to sell you the car at the 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?
