People are buying and selling cars everyday. In some cases people choose to sell their car and buy a new one privately. Although this may be a good option in some instances, there are many benefits to going through a dealership. Here are some reasons that you should go through a dealership to when buying a car.
1. Save On Taxes
One of the main reasons to go through the dealership is because you can save on taxes. When you trade in your car they will deduct the price of the trade in against the car. What this means is that they will appraise your old car and determine how much they will buy it for. Then they will take all of that money and put it toward the purchase of your new car. The reason this is so great is because you will only pay taxes based of the difference in price. Thus, if you buy a $20,000 car but traded in a car for $9,000 you would only pay sales tax on $11,000 dollars. This can save you a good deal of money.
When you buy a car privately you will have to pay taxes on the full amount, even if you sold your other car.
Another major benefit to buying from a car dealership is that you can get a warranty on the car. If you buy the car brand new you will get a manufacturer warranty. This is the best kind because the manufacturer will guarantee the car's function so that if anything were to happen (that wasn't caused by you) like a faulty tire, or piece of equipment, it would be replaced. You can only get this if you buy through a certified dealer.
Even if the car isn't new you can still get a dealership warranty. This usually gives you a certain amount of time, or a certain amount of miles you can put on the car that it will be guaranteed through the dealer. Obviously you can't get this when you purchase through a private seller.
3. Better Quality Products
Any car on a certified dealership will be repaired and cleaned so that it is in the best condition possible. If there is a problem they will generally fix it before they sell it. This means that you get a better car with better tire, interior and other features when you choose to purchase through Ford dealers in your area.Share
