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 Durand WI 54736 a higher price on the car window and a lower price advertised on the web.

This strategy is used to stop a customer haggling for a lower price.

The reality is that there is no recommended retail Nissan Leaf S Durand WI 54736 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 Durand WI 54736 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 Durand WI 54736 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?
