Know your affordability in advance by obtaining pre-approved finance allowing you to negotiate from a position of strength and don’t be satisfied with one finance house for the best interest rate – try a few of them.
Research the make and model to understand what car you want, its known weak points, typical repair costs and service intervals
Begin searching for the cars on your target list using Cars4sa.co.za inventory page and in your area to avoid travelling long distances and wasting fuel.
Research used car reviews for that model vehicle when possible. Once you have found a suitable car take it for a test drive to be absolutely sure
There is nothing like competition between dealers to get you the best price. Make sure you know what other dealers are charging for a similar car by searching Cars4sa.co.zan. Good advice - deal on your terms, not the dealer's.
Always be prepared to walk out: This is your strongest negotiating tool.
Be patient. Plan to spend as much time as possible in negotiating in a dealership.
Don't be distracted by dealer pitches for related items such as extended warranties or anti-theft devices.
