Buying a new or used car can be a very stressful experience. From finding the car you want to having to deal with the pushy salesperson, this is not an easy task for anyone. Buying a car online can eliminate much of the stress for the following reasons:
1) No dealer pressure
Having to haggle and argue with pushy and obnoxious sales people can be stressful and time consuming. By purchasing on-line, exposure to the dealer is limited to email and on-line messaging and an occasional phone call. You are not subject to any high pressure sales tactics. Nor will your keys be hidden away from you until you sign on the dotted line.
2) Buying On-Line is Faster
Buying a car usually involves driving from dealer to dealer looking for the right car at the right price. This can be very time consuming, and with gas prices today, very costly. On the Internet each dealer is just a click away so you can shop for cars at home in your P.J.s with a cup of coffee and a stress free atmosphere. In addition it is easy to compare different makes, models and prices of the vehicles you are interested in.
3) Buying On-Line is Cheaper
By doing your research on-line you can easily decide what type of car you want as well as how much you are willing to pay. Then, simply contact the car dealers online that have the type of car you want and ask for their lowest price. Once all bids come in, take the lowest bid received and go to the other dealers to see if they will go any lower than you low bid. In this way you are bound to get the cheapest price available.
In addition, the only trip you take to the dealer is to pick up the car. Even the purchase paperwork and financing can be done on-line if you have access to a fax machine. Or, if you prefer not to finance with the car dealer you can visit your bank or finance company ahead of time and the pre-approved for the car.
If you are the type of person that likes to see what you are purchasing and shy away from buying a car online there is a simple solution. Use the Internet to determine what car you want. Then go to the closest dealer and tell them you only want to test drive the car and you are not buying. This way you can test out the car and find out if you truly like it. Once you make your decision go back to the internet to collect your purchase bids.
