Think Digital when Car Shopping

April 11th, 2014 by

Today, the Internet is a very powerful and useful tool for researching vehicle information. Online car shopping can save you a lot of time, energy and money. The only aspect missing from an online car shopping experience is the test drive, which you can accomplish after narrowing down your options based on your Internet research.

With the Internet you can:

  • look up new and used car prices for the vehicle you are looking at purchasing;
  • see how much dealers pay for these vehicles;
  • check vehicle statistics and consumer ratings for these cars; and
  • find average price and value information on used cars and used trucks.

Knowing this information is very important when car shopping. It can help you protect yourself from dealers who charge too much for their vehicles. Here are a few reasons why browsing through an online used car inventory is important to find the best deal possible.

Productive Research

Driving from dealership to dealership wastes gas, time and money. It also adds pressure to buy now because you’re approached by commissioned car salesmen. Do your research at home, narrow your choices, and make a list of questions to ask the dealer when you’re ready. According to Drivers Select, more than half of online car shoppers ultimately make their purchase from the first dealership they visit, which means their time spent researching was productive.

Use Valuable Comparison Tools

When you visit dealerships for your car buying research, your knowledge is limited to only what the car salesmen share with you (or doesn’t share with you). The Internet has side-by-side comparison charts and tools that allow you to clearly see the differences and similarities in features between various makes, models, and years.

Read Reviews

Being able to read real and honest reviews and detailed reports by those who have purchased and are currently driving the vehicle you’re interested in may be the single most helpful tool in your research. Be sure to read both positive and negative reviews.

Quickly Narrow Your Search

Search engines are the new Yellow Pages. Some dealership websites have maps linked to their vehicle inventory to make it fast and easy to track down the exact location of the vehicle you’re looking to buy.
