Once you've decided to finally purchase your own vehicle, the next step is identifying the car dealership you want to consult and buy your car from.
There are two basic types of car dealers, one specializing in new cars, the other in used cars. Used car dealerships, as the name implies, offer only used car sales
. New car dealerships, on the other hand, sell new vehicles (sedans, SUVs, trucks, vans, etc.), offer repair and maintenance services, and sell car parts and accessories. Therefore, these are the most basic services you can expect from a car dealer, depending on the type of car dealership you approach.
While the price at which your dealer offers you the car you want and how close that price comes to your target may be your primary consideration, don't let yourself lose on the added considerations you have to take in choosing that dealership. The service they offer you, the reputation they have, and even the location of the dealership will matter in the long run. Make sure that you build a lasting service relationship with the best dealer you can find.
