Here at Honda of the Avenues, we want all of our customers to drive home happy, knowing that they got the vehicle they wanted for a price that works for them. Whether you wish to buy or lease a car, everyone wants to save money, so if you’re one of many looking for a good deal, we have great news for you. Keep reading to learn more about how to get a good deal on a car.

Know What You Want

The first part of knowing how to get a good deal on a new or used car is deciding what you want in a vehicle. By narrowing down the manufacturer, style and even specific features that you’d like to see, you can be more confident before you even come into the dealership. Knowing what you want in a vehicle will make the entire process easier and enables you to do research beforehand about how much your ideal vehicle will cost.

Know What You Can Pay

Being armed with the knowledge of how much the car you want is worth, your current credit score, a pre-approved financing offer, and even an estimate of your trade-in value from Kelley Blue Book (if you have one) will make you ready to negotiate for that good deal you’re looking for. Plus, if you’re searching for a new car, we’re proud to offer many incentives that will bring the price down even more!

Shop During Off Hours

Weekends and nights are the busiest times for dealerships for obvious reasons—most people looking for a car have a 9-5 job Monday through Friday. When you visit our dealership during “off hours,” you’re ensuring that you won’t have to wait in line, have more time to browse and won’t be competing with as many customers for the good deals.

Trade In Your Current Vehicle

When you trade in your current vehicle for a new car (or a car that’s new to you), you’ll see instant savings on that car that you want. By using the money from your trade-in to purchase your next vehicle, you’ll be getting a better deal on a new or used car.
