Rule #4: Avoid Dealer Fraud when buying a used car

Salesman and Manager

If the salesman starts with “Wow! It’s a very low price. I have to talk to the manager” game, don’t let him/her play that game with you. Don’t let them make you wait and get more attached to the car. The best defense here is to say beforehand that you don’t tolerate waiting. Say that it’s your final price; if they start to make excuses, then leave!

Don’t Sign Anything

The dealer will try to make you sign some papers as your offer of price to the dealer. It all influences the psychology, to make you feel committed. Don’t sign anything until you are given a paper stating your ownership of the car. After that you sign only the form of your payment.
