Dirty Trick Free Zone: Episode #38- Car Buying Statistics

July 21, 2010


In today’s episode of the Car Dealer Dirty Trick Free Zone I, Jill Merriam owner of Key Hyundai of Manchester and Key Hyundai of Milford,talk about a scary statistic facing the car dealer industry. In a recent poll I was reading about, it said that 93% of those polled hate the car buying process. WOW! That is a really, really high number.

I am a firm believer that the car buying process should be fun and joyful. A car is one of the bigger purchases you make during your life and why does it have to be this long and dreadful process. Well to me it dosen’t. I am determined to turn that statistic around.

To make this process and experience more fun for you, I thought I could share some tips to make it a bit more enjoyable. My first tip is to know your credit. Know it inside and out and understand it better then the dealer does. My second tip is to do research online. With so much information now available online, the car buying process is really in control of the consumer, so look around online. My third tip is to try and  do all your test driving in one day. It is easier to compare when you have a fresh memory of what one car had that another didn’t and it can save you time from having to do it all over. If you follow these tips, you should see that car buying can be fun and a great experience.
