Research Car Values

Researching car values is important because you want to advocate for yourself. Websites like Cars.com, Edmunds, and Kelley Blue Book are useful resources for determining a fair price for a specific model. You will want to consider factors such as mileage, condition, features, and packages because they can affect the car’s value. Regardless, knowing the true market value of the car you’re considering will give you an edge. You should also know how much you can comfortably afford within your monthly budget.

Ask for a Lower Price (If You Choose)

Negotiating a used car price can be a daunting task, so if you are unhappy with the initial asking price, how can you advocate for a used car. If you want to learn how to negotiate used car prices, you will want to be polite and informed to get the best deal in the Manhattan area.

After a sales associate gives you the full price of the car, you can say something like, “I’ve researched this car’s market value, and I know how much shoppers typically pay for a car like this one. If you can give me a better deal than this one (hand over a copy of the lowest sales price you’ve found, or a printout of a similar listing at a local dealership), I would buy the car today.” This shows that you’ve done your homework and the salesperson will want to work with you.
