Negotiating the Price on a Used Car

When it comes time to buy a car, a little negotiation skills will need to be put into play. In case you’re unfamiliar with wheeling and dealing on a used car, consider the following tips.

Do Your Research

When you’re negotiating for a car (or anything else), your best bet is to arm yourself with as much knowledge as possible. Information as as how much the car truly costs the dealership, or what the real value on the buyer’s trade-in would be are important pieces of information to find out before you start looking (and negotiating) for a car. To ensure the amount you pay for the car is fair, you need to find out as much as you can about the vehicle you want to purchase before you go to any dealership.

Read Reports and Reviews

Consumer Reports auto issue comes out every year, and features section on cars that provides readers with info such as the most reliable and least reliable cars, as well as the frequency of repairs for certain models and year of those models. This data can help you devise a list of cars you want to check out, and those you should probably stay away from.

Be Ready to Walk Away

In any negotiation – be it for a car or even in a real estate deal – always be ready to walk away. Practice some flexibility in your selection, and don’t get too emotionally attached to one vehicle. There are always more cars out there.
