Shopping for a luxury car? Here are some mistakes you should avoid at all costs:
Not shopping around
Different dealerships will tack on different extras onto the total price of your car. So make sure you do the rounds, says the DMV. Check out at least 3 to 5 dealerships and go from there.
No idea what you want
The process will also go that much easier if you know what kind of car you’re looking for. Better yet, if you already have an idea what kind of make or model hits the mark, whether it’s a Mercedes C Class Cabriolet or something else.
Not knowing the car’s market value
Make sure you know how much the Mercedes C Class Cabriolet goes for in the market. This should give you the leverage and information you need to negotiate for a better price. Otherwise, you could end up falling for quote that’s bloated with more than a few zeros tossed in.
Not calculating the costs
Don’t just concentrate on the monthly rate you’ll be shelling out money for. It might come at a great deal, but the other charges and fees bundled into the total could leave your bank account sad and empty. So know all the costs of buying a car. And be sure you have enough in your account to cover those costs on top of your other monthly bills.
Not checking the car
Test driving the car is a fine way to check it for any handling problems or issues. So whether it’s a brand new model or an old one, don’t forget to take it out for a spin. You might learn a thing or two that could change your mind or point you in another direction.
So don’t let buying mistakes spoil your luxury car buying experience. Follow these tips and you’ll do just fine.
