Car Buying Myths at Keyes Lexus

Rumors are tricky things. You may hear them from your closest friends and family, but turns out they aren’t true whatsoever. It’s a common occurrence in the automotive sales world—and only adds to the overwhelming, frustrating nature of buying a car. But Keyes Lexus wants to make the process easy and hassle-free, regardless of if it’s your first time or your fourth.

But first, let’s clear these rumors up.

  1. Wearing raggedy clothes to the dealership can get you a better deal.
  2. So can going to the dealership when it’s raining.
  3. Not telling the sales person about your trade-in until the last minute will help you save.
  4. Visiting just before closing, will push the staff to close the deal.
  5. Stopping by at the end of the month when sales people are trying to meet their monthly sales goals will get you a better price.
  6. Hiding the fact that you’re leasing will help you get a discount.
  7. Paying with cash can get you a better deal than financing.
  8. Buying new is always the better option in the long-run.
  9. The salesperson is always trying to swindle you, so be on guard.
  10. A different service department will always be more affordable.

All of these points are invalid and false statements. So, be careful what you hear and what you read on the internet. It’s always just a good idea to be upfront with your dealership and honest in what you can afford. (And it really doesn’t matter what day or time you visit. You’ll get the same deals no matter what.)

Before you do anything, make sure you know what car you’re looking for. Need an SUV and extra space? Just need something practical for work? Is leasing or buying better? How much can you put down for a down payment? There are a lot of questions you need to not only ask yourself, but the sales staff at Keyes Lexus.
