You should steer clear of a car dealership that makes you feel like you have to make a decision right away. A good salesperson will know the value of allowing you to weigh your options. This advice doesn’t just apply to the car itself; just say no to add-on extras like VIN engraving and paint protection.

6. Have the Car Checked Out

Any scrupulous car dealer will allow you to have the car checked out by an independent mechanic before you buy. If the dealer you’re working with balks, insisting that their mechanics have already checked the car out, don’t purchase your vehicle there.

Bringing your own financing can often get you a better rate than getting a GMC Sierra K1500 SLE Z71 Fall Creek WI 54742 car loan directly through the dealer. As with having your car independently examined, any dealer that doesn’t allow you to do so should be avoided.
