If you’re like us, the idea of walking onto a used car lot and having a slightly cheesy salesman try to make you purchase a car today is probably enough to put you off going in the first place.
Indeed, the used car salesman stereotype is still alive and well; however, standing your ground can be a bit easier if you understand the sorts of tactics these salesmen use.
The most common used car salesmen tactic is to prey on the inherent human desire to not pass up a great deal.
You’ve probably heard something like “These deals won’t last long,” or “We could run out of these cars by the end of the day.” These lines are designed to make you believe that, if you decide to wait, you will pass up your one opportunity to take advantage of a great price.
This is, of course false.
There are always more shipments, more dealerships and more sales to take advantage of when you know you are ready to take the plunge and buy a vehicle.
