We all have dreams about walking into a premium car dealership, pointing to the nicest car in the showroom and telling the salesperson, we want that car. That car dealership might be Mercedes and if so, you need to understand how, how to drive away in your Mercedes Benz, on the best terms.
But how do you get the best terms? The answer is that you do some planning and homework about the best approach to take. Here is a guideline that can help you get the best possible deal on your dream car.
Do Online Research About the Dealership
Research car dealerships online to find out all you can about the people who work there, the types of deals they offer, and the service plans they provide. Also most car dealers with have their car inventories inline. You can check them out there before you enter the dealership. You should have an idea of the car you want, then focus on dealerships that offer that car at an attractive price.
Also, look at the customer reviews that are circulating about the dealership on social media. Does the company have a Facebook page? If so, what are people saying there? Are they happy with the sales team and service after they purchase or lease a car? Customers are happy to tell you their experiences and to complain when they have been misled or treated badly. Use this fact to get inside knowledge about the dealership.
Lease the Car
Although most car buyers get a car loan when purchasing an automobile, more and more luxury car buyers are opting to lease. Because of this, you can get a good deal leasing a Mercedes. Choosing to lease provides you with great benefits including: You can put down less of a down payment, your monthly payments will be lower, and you will be in line for getting a newer version of the car you purchase when your lease is up. In other words, you turn the car in after the lease and get a new dream car to drive. This allows you to drive a more expensive car.
Be aware that shorter leases typically work out better and match the amount of mileage you request on your lease to the actual amount you drive so you do not incur additional mileage costs when you turn the car back into the dealer.
Do not Miss any Service Appointments
All luxury cars today are high performance and require regular servicing. When you lease your car, there will be a service schedule given to you. Be sure that you adhere to all of the dates for service. This way you keep your car running perfectly and become aware of any issues before they become problems. As importantly, if you miss a service the dealer can void the lease or hold you liable for any problems with the car.
Take these steps to get your dream car in the terms that are most in your favor. Enjoy.
