3. The Test Drive

We all enjoy a good test drive and look forward to it. Although it is essential to test drive a car before you buy it, remember to not show your absolute love forrepparttar car torepparttar 141051 salesperson. Their goal is to get you emotionally attached torepparttar 141052 car, so it becomes a must have for you. I have learned itrepparttar 141053 hard way.

To hide your emotional tears fromrepparttar 141054 salesperson, mentionrepparttar 141055 features of a competing car inrepparttar 141056 same class, likerepparttar 141057 new shape, light, leg room, resale value etc. This will makerepparttar 141058 salesperson a little vulnerable.

4. Monthly Payments

This one is to confuse you. Dealers will start talking about monthly payments rather thanrepparttar 141059 total price ofrepparttar 141060 car. They will start by asking how much you are willing to pay per month and how much of a down payment you are willing to pay. Since people donít want to look like they cannot afford a certain car, they will usually give a higher number. Big Mistake!

You have left little room for negotiation when this happens. Always steerrepparttar 141061 conversation torepparttar 141062 total price ofrepparttar 141063 car and do NOT mention any trade-ins at this point. Only afterrepparttar 141064 total price ofrepparttar 141065 vehicle is completely negotiated then talk about interest, monthly payment and trade-ins.

General Rule;

As a general rule, remember to only focus and negotiate onrepparttar 141066 Total Price ofrepparttar 141067 vehicle. Everything else is pretty muchrepparttar 141068 car dealerís trough.
