How do you buy a car from a dealership, with cash, with no credit, with bad credit? Here are the best car buying tips available today!
#UsedCar #car #carbuying See our latest video "TOP 10 Tips to get the BEST CAR DEAL" (10 best car buying tips / advice) at Are you a savvy car shopper who needs a little car buying advice? Kevin Hunter hosts "The Business Forum Show" outlines the 13 car mistakes to avoid making at the dealership. See the new video on "Getting Pre-Approved on Car Loans!" at

People in the car business who profit from your mistakes by taking advantage of you will rant about things we share here and disagree with the content, but don't be fooled by their rhetoric. A dishonest car salesperson absolutely loves an ignorant car shopper. We will try to help you avoid the common mistakes, and assist you in sorting the facts from the baloney in this business. We profit nothing regardless of what you choose to do, and we don't mind if you choose to not use the information. If you do, you'll find yourself walking away with a much better car deal. If you don't, you don't have much room to complain when this stuff happens.

How do Car Dealers rip you off? This video presents 13 different car buying mistakes that you can't afford to make when car shopping. If you're going to car shop and don't want to be taken advantage of, it's up to you to learn about car salesmen and auto dealerships, and the dirty tricks they play to rip people off. You also need to learn about the scams and inappropriate products sold by both new and used car dealers, and why some things dealers offer should NEVER be purchased. These include things like the theft protection scam, GAP insurance that is sold to consumers who either didn't need it, or could have purchased much cheaper from their own insurance agent, and extended warranties that are often sold to buyers who didn't want them or need them. To make matters worse, there are also thousands of car dealers who employ finance officers that are some of the most unscrupulous people you'll ever meet, willing to tell you any lie they can come up with to sell you everything I've described, and more. The worst ones will even claim your interest rate on your loan is only available if you buy all the added products they are proposing. They claim the 'bank' wants the car protected.... which is BS... On the contrary, the bank wants your loan as small as possible so if they need to repossess the car, they can get their money out of it.

This video was published to help you discover how you can save time and money on your next new or used car purchase by doing your homework first, and then going car shopping as an informed buyer.

Is it unreasonable to expect a little old-fashioned honesty? We don't think so, but we are more than amused by the countless car salespeople or car dealers who contact us and state that we are making a 'small problem' sound far worse than it is. They also tell us the entire video is completely fabricated baloney. Really? Are you kidding us? We know there are honest people in the car business, and we receive positive comments from many of them, but it's definitely a buyer beware world out on the car lot!

For all of you car buyers who are well steeped in reality, if you watched the video "Confessions of a car dealers backroom" you need to see this video. By understanding what mistakes to avoid, you'll not only become a smarter car buyer, but you'll also better understand what not to tell a car dealer when buying a car. It's true that you can play all your cards up front with an honest dealer, but unfortunately, they represent the minority of dealer owners (truly transparent and honest dealers make up about 40% of all dealers), and you are unlikely to know the difference until it's far too late. Be smart, do your homework, and you'll come home with a car deal that's good for you and the dealer. After all, that's what fairness is all about. We don't endorse anyone being ripped off, and that includes some customers who think it's 'justice' to turn tables and try to 'steal' a car from a dealer. If you do stuff like this, that makes you a crook too, doesn't it? When a car dealer loses money on a deal, they just take it from the next unsuspecting person. We don't think your neighbor should have to pay for your car, so we encourage you to be fair and honest. Everything we talk about has to do with fairness and honesty, and that works both ways. Respect the dealers right to make money in your quest to get a fair and honest car deal. It's this kind of attitude by car dealers and consumers alike that will change the car business.

      You left a few things out. (1) take pictures of any flaws on the vehicle chips cracks (I'll explain in a minute) make sure to internet search all 50 states for the vehicle your looking for. And tell the salesman you've got a car in mind that your getting ready to make the trip that you have a relative there that told you about the car giving you a reason to visit but you want to see what deal he can give you because taxes are cheaper here. Once he gives you the deal show him the defects you found in the car and that the other place showed you there car was flawless if he could fix the problems or give a better deal.

      I don't get why you shouldn't have a pre-planned idea of what you'd like monthly payments to be (No. 8). If you're firm on what you want the car price to be, the financing length and the monthly payments... How is that bad? How are they gonna screw you?

      GAP insurance CAN be a good deal too.

      $600 for 36 month financing OR $35 a month (35x36= $1,260) from your local insurance agent.

      After an early pay off most places rebate you part of the unused GAP insurance (in my area anyway).

      I've never in my life been to a place with 3 sales. persons.

      Best know the consumer protection laws for where your at, if the law doesn't protect you from a speciffic scam then beware of that type of scam.

      You do not need GAP for the entire duration of your loan. GAP is only for when you owe more than what your vehicle is worth. This is also known as being upside down.

      Once your vehicle is worth more than what you owe, you can drop the GAP insurance.

      GAP will usually be cheaper through your insurance company than through the dealership. Check with your insurance company first as not all insurance companies offer GAP insurance.

      For people who actually do research on GAP insurance from an insurance company....

      Adding gap insurance costs an additional 5% of your total comprehensive and collision bill per year. Collision and comprehensive insurance comprise approximately 60% to 70% of your premium. If you pay $1,000 per year for car insurance, $700 of that may be going toward your collision and comprehensive insurance. In this example, adding gap insurance would be an additional $35 per year, for a total premium of $1,035. (If $700 for property damage coverage seems like a lot, consider raising your deductible, which may lower your premiums but leave you open to more risk if your car is damaged.)

      Gap insurance might be a considerably higher if purchased through your dealership, so be sure to check the price from the auto insurer through which you already have coverage. Going this route also makes the claims process easier.

      You think GAP at your car insurance company is $35 a month? Lol... no wonder you thought that was a bad deal. Try... $35 per year. $105 for 3 years. The misinformation can be astounding.

      I love the add on they call "etching" on the German imports that have been sold 2-3 times since the original purchase ,although it's actually done at the factory for their protection in case it's jacked before it's sold, the original purchaser pays the cost but then they try to pass that cost onto the other customers every time they resell the vehicle .This seems to be a practice with the mega dealerships, i bought a 2013 Mercedes from a smaller dealership and etching never came up , at least not as a add on cost .If it was factored into the cost of the vehicle i wouldn't know and i didn't ask ,it was a great deal that didn't come with that ridiculous add on .

      Sometimes the incentives do change on new vehicles. Especially at the end of the month. A lot of times the dealership/sales manager does not know what the incentives are going to change to, either worse or better. If you are interested in leasing a new vehicle then the Lease factor (Lease interest rate) definitely changes from month to month ESPECIALLY at the end of the model year. Another thing to consider is the time of month when you want to purchase a vehicle. The closer to the end of the month, the more likely the dealership is willing to accept your low offer on a vehicle.

      Edward Abraham In reply to New2Hackintosh

      The end of a month, especially the quarter-end, is the best time to buy; it's also best to go to high volume dealers as opposed to smaller ones. Higher volume dealerships almost always can offer better deals, because they get bigger hold-back incentives from the manufacturers. While incentives can change on new vehicles, rarely will they get worse within the same model year. Incentives tend to get better on a given model year vehicle throughout the year. When the new year vehicles come out, however, the incentives are usually pulled back.

      Edward Abraham In reply to gregory J

      No offense, but that is just plain wrong. Financing things is actually not a bad way to acquire them, especially if you can get a low interest rate. Blanket statements, like the one you made, generally are simplistic. Companies of all sizes finance their very existence, from equipment to buildings to capital upgrades; using other people's money to do so is often a good thing to do. The same logic applies to individuals. If you can buy a new car at a 2%, or even 0% interest rate (which is often offered as an incentive), why the heck would anyone pay cash for it, even if they had the cash? You can make more than that in a long-term CD now; there is no reason to pay cash for big ticket items. The idea that you should only buy what you can afford to pay in cash is a fallacy often propagated by people with little business education, because they think it sounds good or it worked for them.

      @HDBlackHippo : I bought my wife a brand new Prius C a few years ago and it is an awesome little car. At first I hated it because I thought the engine was too weak for me as I ride a Kawasaki Ninja ZX1400R I also paid cash for a few years ago, August 2016 to be exact. Anyway, the Prius C needs very little maintenance performed on it, and it is very good on gas. It is a great city car, or a car to travel to and from work if one wants to save on gas money. If you are concerned about power and speed, the Prius is not for you.

      @gregory J Only problem with your logic is 73% of Americans have less than $5000 in savings and 54% are living pay check to paycheck. For most people it takes years and years to save up that amount of money. In todays economic environment where the price of everything is going up substantially faster than incomes are it isn't possible for most people to buy a car in cash. Especially when you take into account the amount of maintenance a $4000 car will need. Its much more financially responsible to buy or lease a car with a $300 payment and have a warranty then buy a $4000 car and take a chance on having to spend another $4000 to fix it which most people don't have.

      @every buddy so, in other words, you can't order directly from the manufacturer. The key paragraph is your last one. You still do everything through the dealership, which negates the OP's point. If you could actually order directly from the manufacturer, you'd cut out the middle man (the dealership), and guarantee that you never pay over MSRP.

      every buddy In reply to 10469 do know you can buy directly from the manufacturer.

      People order vehicles from the manufacturer all the time. Sometimes it's to get a specific paint color that is not normally used on that car model. Maybe it's to get equipment that is normally not installed.

      The vehicle will still need to be picked up at a dealership as the taxes, registration still needs to be done.

      I bought gap insurance without knowing it, just yes at the dealership. Car Paint's warranty, Sofa fibre's warranty, Key fob lifetime warranty, Tire warranty, 5 years extension warranty for $6000. Gap insurance is the only thing that I'm actually pissed about. Car paint protection's protect my car from rust when it's snowing. I lost my key fob twice, quite mad when I had to pay so much extra for $300 for replacing one. Finally my car broke down before when I didn't have car towing & warranty to fix them. I agreed to of the warranty (actually picked them out, there were a lot more!) Gap's insurance.....I'm still paying $100 month for gap insurance!!

      Paying cash is definitely the thing to do, but don't flash that cash too early in the negotiations. Dealerships make more than 50% of their profits in finance... so if they know you are a tough cookie (later in the game), don't expect them to budge on the price of the car. Keep that your little secret until the very end, and make sure you have the agreed price of the car in writing before you mention you have the money to pay straight up. If the salesman keeps pestering you about a credit app, just tell them you'll talk to the finance officer after the price of the car (including your trade if you have one) has been settled. This is not a lie. You will be talking to the finance man, and you'll be telling him you have the money! Lol... Thanks for your comments. Clearly, you're a smart car buyer!

      There answers:
      Gas problem- they cannot duplicate it so they cannot fix it.
      High beam problem- said its not on auto position( which is not true because im night shift employee I always used auto lights). And told me to read the manual page 47 and set it my self( I did). But the problem is still there. I've been 3x to honda same problem. But still not fix.

      @Annie Joy Chua At least your Honda dealership told you about the oil dilution problem. My wife’s 2017 CRV has the same problem. The dealership service representative just flat out denied the gas smell in oil when we took it for oil change and told us there’s no issue with 2017-18 CRVs, even after I showed him a Consumer Reports article (which I expected based from other owners’ post online). The following link tells more about the oil dilution issue and may help you if you are in the US, as it has a link to a law firm that is investigating the issue.
