If you are thinking of buying a new ford car for sale you might be wondering what you can do to get the best price on the vehicle. There are many ways to get a good deal if you know what to do when you go to the dealership. Here are some things that you should know about buying a car.

1. Have Time and Don't Be Desperate

First, it is important to go to the dealership when you have plenty of time, or with the idea that you will come back if needed. In fact, if you can leave and come back it will only help your situation. It will show them that you are not desperate for the car and you can wait as long as needed to get the deal that you want.

Conversely, if you go to the dealership acting as though you have to get the car now and that you LOVE that car, they know they will have more leverage with you and may not be as apt to make a deal. If you give yourself a week to go back and forth to look at cars, and tell them to call you if they can get a better deal, you are most likely to save money.

2. Go To Multiple Dealerships

Don't be afraid to visit a couple different dealerships and look at the exact same car. Tell them what kind of deal the other dealership is going to give you and see if they can beat it. Otherwise, you will never know who actually has the best deal. Some dealerships might give you a lower interest rate, others might give you a better offer for your trade in and a myriad of other things. Pinning tow dealerships against each other is one of the quickest ways to drive the cost down.

3. Know What Fees Are Flexible

Lastly, it is important for you to know what fees are flexible and what things are set in stone. For example, if will be easier to negotiate the price of your trade in then the price of the car in some instances. Additionally, you should ask what each fee is and have them itemize your bid, because you will see that things like "dealership fees" will be easier to have them lower, than a state mandated registration fee. 

By trying these things you are more likely to get a good deal when buying a car.
