No matter if you are buying a new or used vehicle, the purchase is likely to be expensive. There are a variety of emotions that you could feel before walking through the dealership’s doors. Try to get these under control. Remember that it is a business transaction. You want the lowest price for a vehicle.
Something that will help you to remember that visiting a used Ford dealer in Batavia is a business transaction is to dress for success. The unfortunate truth is that price discrimination exists. Dressing for success strengthens your negotiating power.
If possible, take a friend with you to the used Ford dealer in Batavia. Choose your friend wisely. You don’t want someone who will encourage you to spend more than your budget allows on the nicest vehicle on the lot. You want a frugal and trusted friend to help you stick with your budget and drag you away from a deal that is not in your favor. Having a friend with you is also helpful if the friend has some knowledge of cars and mechanics.
When test driving a vehicle, make sure to do it right. This means making sure you feel comfortable in the vehicle and that there is enough room for your family and the cargo you carry regularly. Drive on roads that you frequent. Pay attention to how the vehicle handles the road. If you have concerns, make sure they are addressed before you purchase the vehicle.
