Stay calm and remember it’s only a car.  Try not to get too attached to one particular car, look around and get the best deal you can.   Be prepared to walk out of the dealers if you don’t get the deal you want.  Also remember to take a test drive – looks aren’t everything in cars.

Negotiate the Purchase Price.

  • Don’t be embarassed to negotiate, remember the salesperson is expecting you to try and do a deal.
  • Are you going to pay cash?  If so don’t tell the salesperson straight away. Dealers make bigger profits on finance deals, so let them bargain the car’s price on this basis. You can then decline the finance deal later in the process – sneaky eh !
  • Start off by stating an amount lower than what you’re actually prepared to pay – you may be surprised and get a better price than you expected.
  • Don’t Only Focus on Monthly Payments,  you may be able to get your finance cheaper somewhere else.
