I’ve lived in Ohio for 18 years and believe me, I’ve seen my share of dealerships. I was with my husband when we purchased our last 4 cars. Even though my cars were both purchased at the same dealership, my husband likes to shop around.
This is why it is important to check out the website before heading there.
Being prepared and doing your research is such an important step. Not only can being prepared and having as much information as possible will not only save you time but money as well.
Research your financing options.
Since you are at home, you have the chance to check out their financing options or find your own before you buy. Again, while taking your time. It is much easier to save money when you have time to think about your options. You can also decide whether or not to finance or lease.
Don’t forget about the specials.
Most dealerships have pages where they list the specials they have going on. You may not see those when you are at the dealership. At least I haven’t seen a bulletin board with all the ways you can save. You could also get a discount based on where you have a membership. It is simple and could save you a couple hundred (or maybe thousands) of dollars.
