Might be some good Tips here, for someone.... How Car Dealerships Rip You Off (The Truth) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1gtmij_uNuE
In this video I explain exactly how car dealerships rip you off. A lot of car dealerships implement the four square method, which is just a simple way to make you think that you're getting a deal.
Car dealerships are a very sophisticated network of stores that know how to separate you from your money. Not all dealerships rip you off, but the ones that use the four square method do.
Don't get ripped off on your next car purchase and watch this video until the end. 4 SQUARE - Dealer$hip Method
<< out the door price, is the only quadrant to Focus on
[went with the 3.9% Lexus financing // beats the banks & credit unions, car loans]
- Trade In
<< Part to Skip, sell used auto privately...for $5,000 more
- Down Payment
<< not necessary, with a good credit rating
- Monthly Payment
(60-72-84 months) << anything a 4 year term, is buying beyond ones means

None of the dealerships I dealt with used the 4 square method....they used the all-the-numbers-mixed-up-in-a-single-column-so-I-couldn't-tell-what-was-going-on method. Equally effective.

Marko, I agree with everything you say here- I spent a year at a dealership and saw this too. However, I studied Advertising in my business degree and learned this process is all about EMOTION. If you go to buy a car and you are emotionally invested, all these tricks from the dealer will work on you. My #1 rule in buying cars is to be ready to WALK no matter what they do. EMOTIONS= EASY SALE

took only 1.5 hours, to buy his Lexus RX350 3.5 years ago // Dad played bad cop & son played good cop (for the most part), while our energy fueled each other, for a NET Discount of 13.3% MRSP (on a brand new SUV).
- going into the buy, Dad even hand picked the young salesman out
- and threw the 4 SQ Method, out the window // controlling the whole process
