A Woman’s Guide to Buying a New or Used Vehicle: Everyday Secrets You Should Know


Car Tip of the Week…

Excerpts from

“A Woman’s Guide to Buying a New or Used Vehicle: Everyday Secrets You Should Know” (Part I & II).

Are You in the Market for a New or Used Vehicle?

According to experts -- the best time to buy a new vehicle from a dealership is in the fall when the new cars arrives or two weeks before the end of the year. You will be able to save hundreds of dollars at this time.

While buying last year’s model, follow this rule – “If you are not saving at least $1,500, you’re better off getting next year’s model. This is true because of depreciation.”

To get the best value for your money, it is recommended that you purchase a two or three-year old “used” vehicle with very low mileage.

Three Dealership Scams

Dealer’s Vehicle Switch

When negotiating with a dealer by phone, fax or email, have the dealer email the details of the quoted price, along with the vehicle’s stock number and Vehicle ID Number (VIN). It’s important that you get this information for both new and used cars. Dealers have been known to switch vehicles after you arrive at the dealership --so watch out for this.

The Lease Switch Trick

You may not believe it, but some dealers will hand you a “purchase contract” to look over only to substitute a “lease contract” later when the time comes to finalize the deal. When you sign something, the law assumes that you’ve read what you signed. Sounds paranoid, but this happens everyday to innocent people like you. The solution is to be sure to read the entire document before signing your name.

Your Financing Fail Through Scam

Be careful trading in your car at a dealership. When they give you a new or used vehicle, sometimes especially with women buyers -- they will contact you in a couple of days to tell you -- your financing fail through. Or they will tell you to bring the car back to have floor mats, alarm system or something else installed. 

When you bring the car back after you have fell in love with it, the finance officer will tell you your financing fail through. They will tell you if you want to keep the car, you will have to pay a larger monthly payment and/or higher interest rate. Even if it is still within 30 days --they will give you a hard time about canceling the car deal and by then your used car will be gone --so beware of dealerships.
