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 How to Sell Used Cars Or Trucks Effectively and For Less! Nissan Maxima SV Sport Menomonie WI 54751 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 Maxima SV Sport Menomonie WI 54751 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 How to Sell Your Car – Best Options to Choose From Nissan Maxima SV Sport Menomonie WI 54751 about ‘web-only offers’, or mutter something about how they ‘haven’t had enough time to update the price in the car window’. It doesn’t really matter what the excuse is – they are simply trying it on, and then try to cover it up when they realise you actually know what you’re talking about.

The reality is that there is no recommended retail Nissan Maxima SV Sport Menomonie WI 54751 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 Nissan Maxima SV Sport Menomonie WI 54751 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 Nissan Maxima SV Sport Menomonie WI 54751 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. Most dealers advertise Nissan Maxima SV Sport Menomonie WI 54751 their cars on commercial classifieds websites, and can easily alter their used car pricing in seconds. 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 Nissan Maxima SV Sport Menomonie WI 54751 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 Nissan Maxima SV Sport Menomonie WI 54751 of trading standards’, dealers will generally concede fairly quickly. But is this the sort of dealer you want to be buying your car from?
