There are many illegitimate car dealerships taking up space in the world. Diverting sales away from reputable businesses and sending them to the wrong people. Ultimately supplying their customers with sub-par service that the average person would just write off as the car industry as a whole. This is destroying the trust people have for the industry and most of all ruining clients car buying experiences.
There is two main kinds of dealerships. Highly legitimate ones that generally only carry one particular brand of vehicle. Then there is your run of the mill used car dealerships. If I was to go shopping looking for a new car. My interest is in Fords, so I would go with what I know. The only route I would take is to use an authorized Ford van dealership. That is not to say that all used car dealerships are bad. There are plenty of well known and well trusted ones out there. The problem is differentiating the good from the bad.
Legitimate businesses or generally any dealership that only sells one brand of car has proven time and time again to be the best option. If you want the best service, best warranties, and all in all the best experience possible then you cannot go wrong with a high end dealership. They place an emphasis on customer satisfaction. Always looking to cater to the customer’s most intimate desires first. If you have a problem with any part of the buying process or even are just confused and have a question. Most people’s preference is going to be to choose the person who is willing to take the time to sit down with them, answer any question they may have, no matter how outlandish it may be, and provide them with a complete and honest response. This is the major benefit in choosing a dealership you can trust.
Why would you go to a place that puts their bottom line first and the customer second? The very concept of it is even flawed. If you went to a very low end/illegitimate car dealership looking to purchase a vehicle, but had no prior knowledge on cars. How would be able to choose between the lemon and the steed? In addition, if the sales man selling you the car is just trying to appease you and tell you whatever you want to hear just to get another sale. How satisfied could you possibly be with your car buying experience?
A vehicle is a significant investment that can either make or break you. It is not every day that you go out to buy a new car, and when you factor in that your new/used vehicle could either last you the next ten years or not even get you back home safely, wouldn’t you say it is worthwhile to do a little prospecting first? So next time you go to buy a new vehicle please keep this caveat in mind and make an informed decision that you’ll be happy with, rather than a mistake that you will regret.
