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

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.
