The buying power of the hispanic community is growing every day. Like most people, hispanic buying power waned during the recession, but it is now on the rebound. With this increased buying power comes an increased ability to drive sales in many industries, especially the auto industry. Whether you are just looking for a new sedan in which to drive the family, or a workhorse truck, the best car dealers are starting to cater specifically to the hispanic market, and you should be able to find whatever you are looking for. Here are a few tips for buying used and new cars to help you find the perfect car for you and your family.
If you want to get the best value for cars, it’s extremely important to be as patient as possible. Buy during months when the demand for new cars is low. The best car dealers will be desperate for sales around the holidays when everybody else is spending their money on presents. And you should never attempt to buy a car before the second half of the month. Salesman are much more aggressive and willing to lose a sale during the first half of the month, knowing that they can make up for it in the second half.
Ultimately, it’s all about exercising your ability to say “no.” Be prepared to walk away from any offer that you don’t like more than once. The best car dealers will tell you that they can’t go any lower on the price, but that usually means there are at least two lower prices they are willing to drop to. Don’t give in and don’t be worn down by an aggressive salesman. Walk away if they aren’t giving you the price you want.
When it comes to new versus used cars, finding affordable used cars can be similar to buying a new car, but you have more options when it comes to choosing a seller. You can buy from a the used car section of a new car dealer, a used car dealership, or a private party. The best car dealers will be able to provide you with cars that are rigorously tested and may still be under warranty, and private parties usually offer the lowest prices. Do your research so you know what you’re looking for, and never buy a used car without a rigorous test drive.
You’re already trying to save by buying a used car, so make sure you don’t rack up any more costs from any car related tickets. For example, I bet you didn’t know that it was against the law to slam your car door in Switzerland. Additionally, if you are a man, you are more likely to get a speeding ticket than a woman. But you should take a tip from the women, as they are more likely to contest speeding tickets.
You have a lot of options when it comes to buying new or used cars, but you may want to consider a Chevrolet. Chevy is a storied American brand that first introduced its iconic bowtie emblem in 1913. Chevy can offer some of the best value for trucks and other vehicles, and accordingly sold 4.76 million cars and trucks in 2011. And if all the Chevrolets bought in 2010 were lined up bumper to bumper, they would cover 51 percent of the earth’s circumference.
