What to Expect at Good Car Dealerships

guest post, grown up stuff, cars + other vehicles

It seems that over the years, the expectation of car dealerships has declined. People go to a dealership expecting the worst. People assume they are going to be haggled, manipulated, pushed to buy, and more. But there are some car dealerships in Durham, NC, that are different. You shouldn’t put up with bad service. Here are some things you can expect at a good car dealership.


The first thing you should find at a good car dealership is respect. If they don’t respect you or your wishes, you will find yourself wishing you hadn’t even gotten out of bed in the morning. Nothing is worse than wanting help but getting disrespected instead. You probably have a price point in mind. You probably also have an idea of the type of car you want. You should expect car salesman to respect your wants and needs. They shouldn’t continue to try to show you cars outside of your price range. They shouldn’t try to convince you to buy a car you really don’t love. They should respect your opinion on all things. Besides, you are going to be the one forking out the money and driving the vehicle on a regular basis.


You should also look for patience. Buying a car is a big decision. If you don’t want to commit right that second, it’s okay. Car dealerships shouldn’t make you feel bad or guilty for wanting to look around at other places before making a final decision. They should be happy that you are putting a lot of thought into it. They should also have patience if you want to try a few different cars instead of simply falling in love with the first one they show you. Choosing a car is a process, so you need someone helping you that has a little patience.


The last thing you want is to feel pressured into buying a car. There are salesmen who work off of commission. They may be desperate for you to buy a car from them immediately. This shouldn’t be how it works. You can find great car dealerships in Durham, NC, that will put you first. They will set aside their desire to sell cars and actually listen to what you want. This is the atmosphere you should look for.

Buying a car, whether brand new or second hand, sure is a major decision to make in one’s life. That is why it is a must that you seek the advice + help of those whose opinion you trust + value, like family members, friends + a reliable car dealership. It might, after all, make or break your decision + the whole car buying experience. It might take a few more years before I set out to buy a car of my own, or before I can finally afford it, but am sure my dad has a lot of nifty tips I can follow to make it one pleasant experience.
