Consumers often watch out for car dealers. The common consensus is that salesmen set out to deplete pocketbooks and offer disadvantageous prices to their customers. This assumption is far from the truth, however. Dealers expect and welcome their customers' negotiation, and they look forward to striking deals that allow both sides to prosper. The negotiation ball is in the consumer's court. It's up to the consumer to know ways to negotiate to find the most effective outcome possible. The following are three necessary tactics to keep in mind when sealing the deal over a vehicle.

Car dealers make the bulk of their make money from commissions. This is an useful tidbit to consider when negotiating for your dream vehicle. It is not in the seller's best interest for you to ignore the deal, so if you negotiate within reason, you will likely be able to drive that car off the lot with a price that works for you. Don't hesitate to drive a hard bargain. Shoot below your preferred price array to see how much of a discount you could be able to score. Quote an offer equal to 25 percent off of the asking price. The seller won't prefer to withhold the sale on principle if your suggested price is lower than expected. His profession dictates that he should expect you to negotiate a lower price, and he is trained to counter your offers until you meet in the middle. Don't pay too much for what you want, but don't ignore it either.

The first lesson you learned in kindergarten was to use your manners. This rule applies to buying cars as well. Stick to that priceless lesson when making your purchase, and you will develop a good rapport with each seller you encounter. Being courteous counts for a lot, even if you and your car dealer don't see eye to eye. Even the most ruthless salesman is more likely to relent on his asking price if your attitude is down-to-earth and you treat him with respectful consideration. When you have to disagree, do so diplomatically. You can be a firm negotiator without pulling out the punches.

When you drive over to the showroom, be prepared and know what you need. It is reckless to buy a vehicle when you know nothing about them typically. Make it your business to familiarize yourself with at least the most basic terminology, and discover what constitutes "bad mileage" and a "sound transmission," as an example. If you do not know the difference between horsepower and mileage, it's your own fault if you get duped. When you use proper car lingo in your negotiations with a dealer, he gets the message that you are an informed consumer. You are then on an equal playing field. Also, it is much easier to justify your offer when you can back it up with rational arguments about features or a lack thereof.

Car dealers are only intimidating if you face them unprepared. Sure, they are driven by the living they have to earn, thus their hard negotiation tactics. However, as a smart consumer, a well-mannered individual, and an informed bargain hunter, you can hold your own when buying a vehicle.

If you fall into the category of drivers who allow a windshield reminder sticker to dictate when they get an oil change, current proficiency recommends you drop that habit. Conversely, it is advised you observe the automobile maker's advised service intervals. For those driving modern cars, it is advised that you rely upon the car's oil life monitoring system to signal you when it is time for a change.
