When buying a new car, a lot of anxiety goes into talking to the car salesman. However, there are a few things that should be sure to say, if they apply.
1. “I’ve got bad credit.”
Got bad credit? It’s not the end of the world, and not something you need to hide from your car salesman. In fact, it will save you a lot of time if you’re upfront about your credit so that your salesman can do what they’re there to do: match you with the car that’s right for you.
2. “If you sell me the car for ‘X,’ I’ll buy it right now.”
If you have a car and a price in mind, don’t be afraid to tell your salesman just that. Being candid will save everyone a lot of hassle. Don’t wait to see if the salesman offers something lower than your target price. It could happen, but it probably won’t. Start by sharing the price you want instead of waiting for a price that’s too high.
3. “I love this car!”
Conventional wisdom might say that your salesman will use this information against you and overcharge, but things don’t have to play out like that. In reality, you can use this information to your advantage. This will signal to your salesman that you really will buy the car if they can meet you closer to your target price. A good car salesman should know that there is no better advertisement for them than a customer who got the car they love.
Buying a car may not be as easy as some shoppers would like, but sharing the right information early on will make the whole process a bit easier. If you are looking for a new car, contact our sales department at Warsaw Buick GMC today!
As manufacturing becomes increasingly global, with foreign cars being manufactured in the U.S. and domestic cars sourcing parts and labor overseas, which cars are really the most American? A recent study puts the GMC Acadia Limited and Buick Enclave at the top of the list.
Car and Driver ranked the GMC Acadia Limited and the Buick Enclave as tied for first place in their recent list of the most American cars of 2017. Car and Driver’s list isn’t simply a matter of opinion, either. Their ranking system is based on a new formula developed by a professor at American University. If you’re looking for cars built in America and from parts sourced from the U.S., look no further than the GMC Acadia Limited and the Buick Enclave.
Both models are built at General Motors’ Lansing, Michigan assembly plant, which GM says has turned out more than 2 million vehicles to date–and these cars aren’t just put together in the US; they’re constructed from parts largely sourced in the US, too. The Acadia Limited, for example, sources an incredible 71% of its parts from the U.S. and Canada.
Compared to other cars—even those we typically think of as classically American—the GMC Acadia Limited and Buick Enclave stand out above the rest. Check them both out at Warsaw Buick GMC today!
